In the below pic the ‘jeep’ is shown at the top edge. The seller plans to take additional pics of the jeep itself.
“Correct that title… the 1/2 size Jeep is built on a Crosley Chassis, it is powered by a Wisconsin engine with electric start and 3 speed Crossly transmission and rear axle
The picture shown is of a Cushman chassis, but behind it, is the Jeep. I’ll take better pictures of it maybe later today.
This vehicle has been in our family almost 50 years.
Originally built by a vocational program in Wooster, OH, back in the early 60′s, we purchased it and have been driving it around the farm every since.
The motor runs great, requires a bit of carberator work once and a while, but powers the little jeep quite nicely.
The project was shared by school body shop, auto mechanics and weld shop as I remember the story was told me.
The body was proportionately built to resemble an old willies jeep flat fender of the day, but fit on a Crosley chassis.
The Wisconsin engine was mated up to the 3 speed Crosley and everything was then assembled to make a running vehicle. Might have been hot shot chassis, not really sure, possibly the wagon.
It is very heavy gauge metal throughout the body, and has a small impact on one front fender were yours truly slammed into my grandfathers prize Corvair when I was a young kid. Showing off to the girls.
It will run much faster than my cousin can run, I will assure you that, but does not have any air bags, seat belts or safety bumpers…
The hood is rather crude, and I always swore I would put the whole body on a small 4×4 chassis and modify the hood and grill to be more like modern Jeeps, but… with only a daughter now to pass it on to. It might as well move on to the next family with rough kids like we were. Able to take a few bumps and bruises, and still keep on ticking.
It has not been run for a couple years now, but I assure you, everyone of my cousins and sisters and nieces and nephews learned to drive in this Jeep, and did it so for close to 45 years… every year.
Would be a great parade vehicle or add some lights and it could be made street legal for places where ATVs and Golf carts roam.
I am going to offer here for $1200 for a short time… if it sells, fine. If not, I’ll polish the old turd up a little, get it running and drivable and ebay it… but I think it’s worth $1200 right now all day long.”
