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 .

“This is a 1950s Willys jeep on a vw frame and drivetrain. Needs a little tlc for full restoration but these sell for over 15k when complete, I just don’t have the time for anymore. Mine is the green one in the second picture. ”

“This old Willy’s body is mounted on a 1960’s VW frame and driveline. The body is rusty but still may appeal to someone out there who likes these old trucks. I far as I know it still runs but realize if you are looking at this it’s not the VW portion that appeals to you.”
“So I’m selling this for a friend,
I don’t have too much information on it, but you’re more than welcome to come take a look at it.
-It doesn’t run (66′ Volkswagen bug engine, 1600)
-Has clean title
-Registered as a 66′ “Volkswagen Jeep”
-Current Reg’d as Non Op
-Needs work, but would make a great project!
-Make a decent offer and bring a trailor!
I’m not sure what year the actual Jeep kit is..
Engine is rear mounted & is manual transmission”
Needs some brake work, but looks like a good price.
“This is a Veep (Willy’s Kit) body mounted on a VW frame/driveline.
-It does have a soft top with doors
-The only major issue is the brakes need to be rebuilt (estimated cost $375 for parts)
-Body is in good condition, but there are some small areas of surface rust.
– Illinois title”
Robin spotted this one. Seller shows photos with two different types of rims. I’m not sure if both are included. The Scamp kit varies slightly from the VEEP kit.
“I am listing this for a friend that is techno challenged and I will try to get answers to all questions. This is basically a VW with a Jeep or some people call a Veep or Jeepster body kit. It represents a 49-53 Jeep and is an all metal body. It has a later GEX big valve VW1835cc dual port engine. It is very powerful and fun to drive. It has two tops (the full enclosure is new, see pictures) and two sets of wheels, plus a tow bar. Look at the pictures closely as these vehicles are called by several names and can be confusing. I have many pictures and if you send me your REGULAR email address I will send them to you. This vehicle runs and drives perfect, is currently licensed and state inspected. There is no warrantee written or implied for this vehicle.”
(12/15/2015) Here’s a cool find. I wonder how many more parts are here.
“2 frames/chassis that are part of a kit vehicle produced in the mid 90’s called “Veepster”. It was a fiberglass bodied replica of a “flat fender” Jeep CJ2A utilizing all mechanical components from a VW Bug. There’s frames are heavy duty 2 x 4 rectangular steel with bolt-in mounting for ALL drive train and suspension components. Build your own VW powered Jeep with a readily available replica body, or build a custom buggy. Includes a box full of original kit components and accessories. $500 for everything.”
“This is a original Willy’s Jeep turned into a veep. Runs like a dream, and only minor dents for the body being as old as it is. When I say it’s a Veep I mean that it is the style of the Veep kits they made in the 70’s but instead of the plastic body, this is a real ’47 Jeep. I wish I could keep it but I’m a college kid who needs money to pay for school/rent so I’m open to offers. Text is preferred.”
This VW Jeep has a neat history. It was a promotional race jeep for the MIchigan Off-Road Championships.

Chris just picked up this VEEP project that’s missing a few items. He’s hoping to locate the 50 page installation manual that Hadley Engineering published. I’m not familiar with that particular manual, but if someone has one that can help out Chris, that would be great!

“2004 DUNE BUGGY, VW VERSION OF A JEEP, CALLED A VEEP! ALSO HAS OTHER NAMES: VEEPSTER, SCAMP, GPV (GENERAL PURPOSE VEHICLE) OR A CONVERTIBLE. I JUST CALL IT MY SHOW CAR!
THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST, COOLEST VEHICLE YOU WILL EVER COME ACROSS AND A MULTIPLE FIRST PLACE SHOW WINNER… THIS WAS VOLKSWAGEN VERSION OF AN OLD WILLY’S / WILLIS JEEP, KNOWN AS A VEEP! THIS ONE WAS FACTORY BUILT IN CALIFORNIA FROM SMALL COMPANY IN 2004. AND THIS IS NOT THE CHEAPER VERSION THAT THEY TAKE A SOLID FIBERGLASS BODY AND JUST SET IT ON VW CHASIS. YET, THIS ONE HAND BUILT OUT OF A COMBINATION OF STRONG FIBERGLASS, ALUMINIUM AND STEEL BODY PARTS WITH VERY STRONG BOXED TUBE STEEL FRAME / CHASIS THAT TIES INTO THE STEEL BUMPERS AND ROLL CAGE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, IT IS BUILT EXTREMLY WELL. IT COMBINES THE RELIABILITY AND CHEAP MAINTANCE OF THE VOLKSWAGEN WITH THE SUPER TOUGH BODY OF ALUMINIUM AND RUST FREE FIBERGLASS. PARTS ARE SIMPLE, CHEAP AND EASY TO OBTAIN THROUGH AND VW SHOPS AND JEEP OFFERS MULTIPLE PRODUCTS TO CUSTOMIZE ANY WAY YOU DESIRE. THESE VEHICLES ARE GREAT OFF ROAD AND I KNOW IT WOULD BE BETTER AND GIVE IT MORE OF THE JEEP LOOK IF I RAN THE BIGGER WHITE WAGON WHEELS AND TIRES. YET I USE IT AS DRIVER TO WORK AND TAKE THE HIGHWAY TO THE CAR SHOWS, SO I WENT WITH THE WHEELS TO ACOMPANY THAT. AND WAS TOLD THAT RIMS ARE QUITE RARE AND WORTH PRETTY PENNY. I JUST LIKE THE WAY THEY LOOK AND RIDE DOWN THE ROAD. WEATHER YOU WANT TO WIN 1ST PLACE AT YOUR LOCAL CAR SHOW, ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS, TOW BEHIND YOUR RV (VERY LIGHTWEIGHT), TURN IT INTO FULL BLOWN JEEP, GO OFF ROAD OR THE SAND DUNES, USE IN PARADE, HAVE A ONE OF A KIND DUNE BUGGY, OR JUST PLAIN AND SIMPLE AND DRIVE IT, YOU WILL NOT FIND ONE NICER. YOU PROBABLY CANT EVEN FIND ANOTHER ONE…
Paul was kind enough to share this very rare VEEP brochure in the hopes that it helps the VEEP owners out there who struggle to find information about their vehicle. Below are photos of the basic brochure. I also have assembly instructions that I haven’t scanned yet. Great stuff! One unique item I hadn’t notice before was the stamped ‘VEEP’ in the hood. I’ve never seen that in any production VEEPs. If you ever run across a hood with VEEP stamped in it, I’d be interested to get some photos.
I’ve known about the VEEP Jeep Kit, from Hadley Engineering out of Costa Mesa, California, but I recently learned about two additional VW kit jeeps: The Veepster and the SCAMP. However, I’m still not clear what differentiates a VEEP from a SCAMP or a VEEPSTER.
E-VEEPSTER: Meanwhile, there is a kit car seller out of Sedona that claimed in 2011 or 2012 to make an E-VEEPSTER. The company appears to have gone out of business. The body of the E-VEEPSTER looks more like a South African Gobex or Badger (especially the windshield) than a VEEP, SCAMP or VEEPSTER.
You can see a very quick clip of a Veepster on Youtube:
According to Youtube, Venus Motors, Electric Car Options and Go Electric came together to build the e-Veepster. A CJ3A Jeep fiberglass replica with a chassis designed with aftermarket VW suspension and the Venus EV Drive System. Kits are available, assembly is available, who says EV’s aren’t available. Many styles to choose from but in Sedona, AZ this is Red Rock 1
(10/18/2013) Scott forwarded this unusual vehicle with a Willys Grille.
“Jeep style VW powered aluminum dune buggy / parade car, looks like a Jeep, a real attention getter and conversation piece, a great advertisement vehicle, single port motor, runs good, $5500.00 Email or Call (510)396-5971 Anton”
The second jeep is a Badger Jeep, A veep-like kit car with a VW engine. What’s most interesting is that the tires are Desert Dog PCV Tires, yet the tires don’t include PCV like other PCV tires I’ve seen.
This is an unusual vehicle that is part of a business. It’s the whole business that’s for sale. The jeep itself is sort of an electric VEEP.
“This is truly a one of a kind vehicle and business opportunity for any EV or automobile enthusiast.
For sale is a custom built Willys electric jeep. The details of this vehicle are hard to describe, but it is essentially a 1949 Willys body sitting on a custom frame, VW front end drivetrain , and custom all Electric drive!
This vehicle was built as a training and demonstration vehicle for ACE Technologies. See the website www.nopgas.us for more information. This vehicle has been used to train hundreds of EV enthusiasts and has been seen numerous times on TV and in parades.
