1971 Jeepster Commando Wichita, KS $28,000

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

Ted shared this nice looking Commando.

“This Kaiser Jeepster Commando Truck (Half Cab) is pure joy. I can’t tell you how much fun this little truck can be. I drove a 69 Jeepster when I was in high school, and when this 1971 project presented itself, I couldn’t resist. I bought this Jeepster from a guy who had it parked in a airplane hanger around Colorado Springs. Because I was very familiar with the original Jeepster’s I took great pains to find original parts and did my best to make it as pure of a Kaiser Jeepster as possible. I even bought a Half Cab that had been crushed to obtain the orignal black moulding pieces (that are impossible to find!). The white truck bed cover is an original Whitco Jeepster top that I was lucky to find new in the box. This Jeepster has a Dauntless V6 motor with a three speed transmission. The 4 Wheel Drive works very well.

I’ve driven it back and forth from Colorado to Wichita KS several times. I have an excellent mechanic in Estes Park as well as another in Wichita. These guys have loved working on it. I have had everything reviewed, and this car is in as good of shape as one could expect from a 1971 Jeepster. The Half Cab’s really turn an eye. It seems to me that many people have seen the Station Wagon’s and the Convertible’s but have seldom seen the Truck.”

This jeep is very clean inside and runs awesome. No problems with it at all. I put a new stereo system in it with four speakers. I am asking for $8500. This vehicle is located in: Seattle, WA.”

1948? Snow Jeep Truck Thing Hillman, MI $2650

Craig spotted this thing. It is listed as a 1948 jeep, but I doubt there is anything ’48 on it.

“Jeep snowplow truck…well sort of….
Jeep truck cab sitting on a military dump truck frame and military 6×6 wheels. Powered by 455 Olds engine and TH400 trans. Payloader and hi-low counter weights with a forklift mast to raise the 9.5 or 10′ county snow plow. Runs and drives but Dad is 85 years old now and does not need to be climbing in and out of this thing that he built anymore.’

1955? Hardtop Brochure on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Here’s another one of these rare brochures for sale. Thanks to Bill Norris and Derek Redmond for the extra pics. This brochure has been for sale on the same eBay pager for four years. Its on sale at the moment.

This unusual fiberglass hardtop was created by the Reinforced Plastics Corp.  I have yet to see one in the wild. Two journal articles (Chemical Week 1957, Volume 81 and National Defense Transportation Journal 1957, Volumes 13-14) both have announcements for the new top, pegging its inception around mid-1957. Unfortunately, Google will only provide snipped views of these University of Michigan scanned journals. The date of these journals suggests the lister of this brochure is probably wrong about the 1955 date for the brochure.

1964 CJ-5 Wheat Ridge, CO $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

Seller believes the Koenig hardtop top came off of a DJ, but that top wouldn’t have fit the wider windshield of the CJ-5.

“Been slowly fixing this cj5 up over the last year or so.
Recently replaced-
All fluids
Axle seals
Greased wheel bearings
Brake master cylinder
All brake slave cylinders
All brake shoes
Brake flex lines
Ignition switch
Tail lights
Distributor cap, rotor, points and leads
Spark plugs
Coolant hoses
Fan belt
Installed delco 145amp alternator.
And more I have forgotten about!

The original f134 motor runs well and I have driven the jeep around the block a few times. Still needs some work to be roadworthy but not much. Body is in good shape with very little rust.
Has a interesting Hardtop and doors that I suspect came off a dj5
Vehicle is fitted with a Ramsey pto winch and PTO.
Vehicle needs new rear leaf springs and the parking brake fixed before it will be roadworthy. Also the fuel tank really needs to be flushed and sealed.”
