The links to posts below show jeeps grouped by models, condition, and other ways. Some of these jeeps are for sale and others have been sold. If you are unsure whether a vehicle is still for sale or not, email me at d [at] ewillys.com for more info.
Importantly, the allure of buying a project jeep can be romantic. The reality of restoring a jeep can be quite different, expensive and overwhelming without the right tools and resources. So, tread carefully when purchasing a "project". If you have any concerns about buying a vintage jeep, or run across a scam, feel free to contact me for help, comments or concerns .
“1948 Willys Jeepster Convertible. It has the L-134 engine (flathead) and has the flat front end. It also has side steps, deluxe steering wheel (full circle chrome ring) and the T badge up front. It was built in the combined plane around the middle of 1948, along side of the 48 wagons. The title shows 1949. That means it sold it 1949, but was manufactured in 1948. It was a gift from my grandfather and has been sitting in storage for almost 30 years. There are no missing parts and is in good shape on the outside and on the interior. It needs to be in the hands of someone who is interested in doing the mechanical work to get it running again.”
This 1951 Willys Jeepster is a 4-cylinder, manual transmission vehicle with 47570 miles showing (mileage is not guaranteed).
The Jeepster has an excellent top, good wide whitewall tires, and a solid body showing an older repaint. Hubcaps are original with trim rings. The upholstery is useable with some cracks/tears as shown in the photographs. Engine is inline, F-head 4 cylinder; 134.2 cu.in. The engine runs fine, but shows blue smoking. Watch video of vehicle driving here (video taken 11/16/12).
The Jeepster was offered from 1948 through 1951 by the Willys-Overland Company.
The vehicle may be viewed at the Northeast Classic Car Museum, 24 Rexford Street, Norwich, NY 13815 at any time during regular business hours or by special appointment. The Museum is open 7 days per week from 9am-5pm (closed Thanksgiving Day). To view the vehicle at another time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 607-334-2886 to make an appointment. Please – serious bidders only! WE STRONGLY URGE YOU TO INSPECT THE VEHICLE BEFORE BIDDING.”

If you ever wanted to do someone unusual to a Jeepster, this is a candidate. Looks pretty rough, yet pretty straight.

This is sold “as is”. Will require restoration and painting. Due to scams I will not be responding to emails. Sorry for any inconvenience.
I like the look of the rims and wheels on this Jeepster.

“1968 Willy Jeepster Commander Convertible with plow – 4 wheel drive -V6 cyl – 3speed standard transmission – runs good but needs total restoration work, brakes – Needs body work and rust work – frame is ok (I have new clutch, steering knuckle and other extra parts). $1,500.00 obo”
“Original 1949 Jeepster — NOT restored, but no dings, no rust. The interior is clean. The previous owner replaced the head gasket on the original 134 c. i. flathead engine and I replaced the six-volt battery, all belts, hoses, and radiator and did an oil change — all less than six months ago. The top frame and original side curtain frames are fine, but the top needs new fabric and both it and the side curtains need new plastic for the windows. The brake shoes all are at about 75%, but the I can’t open the master cylinder so I don’t know if the lines are bad or the master cylinder might be, but in either case the brakes DO NOT work. I have priced a master cylinder online at $69. The three-speed transmission with overdrive and clutch are strong, but the synchro appears to be bad. Sometimes it will go into gear just fine, other times it grinds. I spoke with a Jeepster guy in Florida who says he will do a complete transmission rebuild for $295 plus shipping. I have driven the Jeepster around my property (without the brakes) and the steering seems fine. It accelerates well, does not smoke (except when first started for about 30 seconds if it’s been sitting for several weeks) and doesn’t make any strange sounds. I was going to do a full restoration on it, but too many projects are ahead of it in line. The only damage I have seen is a hole about 2 inches in diameter on the side of the driver seat (shown in photos), a piece chipped off the right side rear seat step (shown in photos), and the hubcap on the spare tire has a crack in it . . . more on eBay”
