“This is an original VEEP VW kit car assembled using a kit from Hadley Engineering in 1978. The all steel Willy’s body sits on a 2″X3″ box steel frame. A VW link pin front beam, a sedan extended rear trailing arm/adjustable torsion beam suspension, a VW bus 4 speed trans and 1969 air-cooled VW engine complete the kit. This rare kit is sought after by both Jeep and VW fanatics and always garners attention wherever you go.

The ‘BestTop’ vinyl top is only a few years old and is like new. Always garaged. The overall condition is very good with limited surface rust. Starts and runs great. Rear wheel drive. Brakes are a bit touchy as expected with the vintage drum style brakes. This unit includes a solid tow-bar and the light weight makes this a breeze to tow.

Meets registration requirements as an antique auto registered as a 1969 VW.”

UPDATE: This is also listed on Craigslist. (buy it now on eBay was $5200)

(06/11/2018) TJ spotted this one. This was sold out of Costa Mesa, the place where Hadley Engineering was based. So, it could be a VEEP.

View all the information on eBay

“This is a chance to own a rare VW Veep it’s made to look like a Willys Jeep. it’s a kit car from the 70’s and 80’s out of Costa Mesa CA. per the previous seller. It’s a blast to drive. I love Willys Jeeps and VW’s so when I saw this last year on Ebay. I thought, why not, no wife to stop me. LOL. Well it’s just too much fun to sit in the garage, no time to enjoy. Fun to tinker with. I shipped it to the NE from CA had the seats redone. Removed the back seat (still have somewhere) and took off some pin strips. It looks good from 20 feet and still needs some tinkering with some of the electrical items. ground issue i think. Wipers are not hooked up and the horn doesn’t work. I can’t figure out how the parking brake works or maybe it doesn’t. I bought it with a 1971 VW title and it came back from PA DMV titled as a 1947 Willys. it’s got a bug front and rear end, air cooled VW 1835 dual port VW rebuilt motor, new carb per previous owner. I really don’t know too much about these.”

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/d/jeep-cj3a-veep-style-5-seater/6362710297.html

“Fun to drive, draws attention from admirers, great for snowbirds to pull behind an RV.
In 2004, at this jeep’s birth, it took a second place in a car show in Sacramento.

This is a conversion of a 1946 Willy’s jeep cj3a (army style) into what was called back in the ’70’s a “Veep”, which meant a steel Jeep body with VW bug running gear (motor and trans).

This Jeep body came out of a shipping crate with army green paint and had never been assembled until i opened it and bolted the hood and floor plate together in 2004. The engine is a dual port stock 1600cc air-cooled motor with a single solex 30 carburetor built in 2004. It has a type 1 transmission with standard 4-spd manual shifting. This Jeep includes the following features:
Four wheel disc brakes
External oil cooler w/ thermostatically controlled cooling fan
Four Fox shocks including external reservoirs in the rear
VW beam front end
Centerline aluminum rims (new tires)
White front bucket seats
A removable rear bench that seats 3 on black diamond stitching
VDO vintage gold rimed gauges
The clear plastic windows in the doors was replaced in 2016
Diamond plate floor under the hood compartment
Custom spare tire mount on front for improved weight distribution
Many customizations..

Many of the upgrades and customizations were installed by a shop in mesa around 2015 and cost me over $8,000.

This jeep has an original 14,000 miles on it from the front to the transmission and engine and from top to bottom. You can see from the youtube video address above that the jeep runs great and sounds awesome. This jeep does not have the old low gearing of a 1946 army jeep with top limits of 45mph. This jeep can do 65-70mph on the freeway easy.

I used it for a daily commuter for a year, then played with it as a pleasure vehicle for the family, now it just sits in the garage and only gets run on the weekends. I just drove it from Arizona to San Francisco for a business trip for a few weeks then back again. It ran perfectly. However, I’m interested in trying something else now.

I am taking offers and will consider all offers that are presented via voicemail or direct phone call. I will not respond to nor consider offers via email or text.

I am under no illusion that I will get back my $15,000 that i have invested in the Jeep and will not be offended by your offer. Please offer what you think it is worth to you and I’ll accept or decline with no hard feelings nor offense taken.

Make sure you watch the youtube video before contacting me since it answers many questions about the Jeep.

Will consider trade for a Suzuki Sidekick or a Geo Tracker or Toyota RAV4 but only a 2dr hard top in fully restored condition that is as pristine as my Jeep and I prefer a 2wd.
