“1950 Willys Overland Jeepster
Affordable summer fun in a classic convertible starts here. The Jeepster was produced by Willys Overland for only 3 years, 1948-1950 with slightly more than 1100 produced in the final year. There were sales in 1951 but they were rebadged 1950 leftovers. This particular Jeepster is a wonderfully fun car that has been increasing in value steadily.
Apparently, someone at Willys Overland thought that the GI’s returning from the war would love to have a “Jeep” of their own that was family sized. As it turned out, most of the GI’s had their fill of Jeeps and sales went over like a lead balloon. This extremely limited production of Jeepsters makes them a rarity today.

1975 DJ-5 Mendon, UT **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: ** sold** was $1800.

It runs and drives.

1975-dj5-mendon-ut

“I bought this Jeep three years ago, did some repairs, got tires, and used it as a backup vehicle for a mail route. It hasn’t been used a whole lot, in fact I put about 200 miles on it. 6 cylinder engine has a lot of pep, engine runs smooth. Being 46 years old means that not everything works the way it should, but it can certainly function as a delivery vehicle still.
I am a retiring Postmaster. As I said I just had this as a backup vehicle just in case my carrier’s vehicle broke down we could still get the mail delivered. It served that purpose well.
Actual mileage is unknown”

1958 CJ-5 Indian Valley, ID $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features • TAGS: .

This CJ-5 has an M-38a1 “arctic” top with the wood doors. It seems in reasonably good shape. The side of the body threw me a bit as it appears to lack the “JEEP” stamps on the cowl sides. However, the passenger side looks like it may have had some bondo work, so that may explain why this lacks the stamp (likely either cut and repaired OR bondoed over OR both).

The seller included pics of a text message where some anonymous expert labeled the jeep a “ch3a”[assuming they meant CJ-3A), based on the “one-piece windshield”. The texter continued, writing, “In military lingo I believe it is a m38 … My best guess it is a 47/48 is is definitely military because of the gas cap.”

Hmmm …

Lots of work has been done to this already & lots of leg work already done lots of new parts already new brake lines new brakes new U joints diffs serviced hubs are packed I would really like to see this go to a good home to run someday. Sooner than later I just don’t have the time My loss is your gain. In the kizer willys mag I found the tub of this Jeep $4700 Let alone all the new parts.
