The dashboard suggests it is old than a ’57.

“I’m letting to of my 1957 Willys. It has the 134 f-head engine. Motor turns but has low compression on cylinder #4. No major problems; Is in fair shape and just needs a little attention. Would make a great off-road or farm vehicle. ”

teds-jeeps

This racing jeep is for sale. It has been in storage for quite some time ,but fired right up and will be a killer start for someone looking to get into the racing game. Back in the day it was built by a guy in Ellington CT named Mel Sherette of Mels Auto Body. At the time he was mopping up all kinds of big bad V8s with this Jeep and Im sure with a little work it still will. Built Buick 231V6 W/Turbo 400 ,Dana 44s ,Desert Dogs and a set of Paddles. Lots and lots of custom work done to this jeep . Willys pick up or wagon front tilt clip molded to a home made cj type rear body . Full cage and harnesses . Kinda old school vintage racer dual points and all but could be a real killer with a few modern updates . Would be right at home on short tracks ,courses ,sand drags ,hillclimbs , or would be a great candidate for some ice racing . I will be happy to supply detailed pics to anyone interested . $4500 OBO

Odd Jeepster-like Jeep Hot Springs, AR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE II: This *might* have evolved into a scam. The seller agreed to sell to one buyer and provided directions to get the vehicle, but now is avoiding the buyer’s calls. 

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $900

Here is an odd one I spotted on Facebook. It reminds me of Bob’s odd Jeepster-like vehicle.

image image image

“This is a very strange “Jeep like” vehicle that is not a Jeep. I was told that it was possibly a specialty vehicle built in the 60s and that it originally had a 4 or 6 cylinder engine that the previous salvage yard owner removed and sold. 2 wheel drive. No seats or top frame. It has full length curved metal running board fenders that Jeeps never had. It also has a center console that housed the shifter. It was originally painted a coral pink color so the possibility exists that it was a resort shuttle vehicle. It is NOT, repeat NOT, a Jeep Surrey model! They look nothing like this “thing”. No engine or transmission. I saved it from a salvage yard over 10 years ago. It has 14 inch “A.J. Foyt” mag wheels that probably are original. Rusty but restorable. Buy it for $900 firm, fix it up, and have the only one out there.”

This has the short nose, so it’s most likely a pre-1972. It’s an odd one!

“The car is a clean example of a self assembled woody wagon. this is a one of a kind model .I am not the original owner , it was purchased in 2013 in Pembervlle Ohio. The body work was done by a retired highway patrol officer. that had a lot of time on his hands. I would like any interested buyer to inspect the vehicle before purchase”
