• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $5000

(06/01/2010) This needs some work.

“For Sale is a complete 1950 Willys Overland Jeepster Convertible in restorable condition.
I have just completed a duplicate and the results are very impressive. Fun car to drive and turns a lot of heads. Newly rebuilt F-134 4 cylinder engine with 3 speed transmission. Engine is very strong and transmission is in good condition. Some rust in floor boards and rocker panels which are easily found online. All parts available to fully restore. Good tires, brakes stop but will need to be replaced. Includes convertible top and side curtains. Paint is passable but you will probably re-paint to complete this excellent project car. Too many projects and too little time. First $5,000 cash take it”

1942 Slat Grille MB Cloverdale, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Nice Slattie!

“1942 Willy’s MB slat grill #109964.  DOD is:  1-8-42.  A 3-year frame off restoration was completed in June 2007.  This slat grill is used mostly for veteran related events, parades and car shows.  This is a popular and a favorite vehicle at shows and has won several awards.  It has been driven less than 1000 miles total.  I drive the jeep at least once every 2-3 weeks and keep it in good working condition.

The original tub was not useable but much care was taken to detail to make the new one as accurate as possible.  The slat has many of the original parts such as: brass data plates, frame, grill, split seam front seats, original back seat, steering wheel, column and steering box, short bodied distributor, “steel” marked pintal, “tiger eye” lenses, solid disc wheels, light assemblies, square shouldered footman loops, brake and clutch pedals, filterette, extinguisher and brackets, many TR20/EC/A/AA bolts and the list goes on ….”

To Top — International Used Car Search Engine


A reader from Greece contacted me today. He is searching for a bare bones willys that he hopes to get and ship back to Greece.  As an alternative, I suggested he try using to locate a jeep in Europe.  I haven’t used this search engine much, but in a search of greece, it did show a variety of Willys flatties and CJ-5s.   So, I did a search on Willys in the US and I got a wide range of results, from way, way overpriced — almost confusing — to reasonable deals. For example, I have this CJ-3A from CDA listed at $10,000 , yet ooyyo has it listed at $20,000 and links it to this ad.  Caveat Emptor!

(04/29/2009) This is a very nice Dj-3A and one of only a handful made in 1961 as noted by the seller.

“1961 WILLYS DJ3A DISPATCHER JEEP, Serial Number 56337 20287, I removed the hard top with plans to paint it black and get a black vinyl bikini top made, but as you can see in some of the photos, it had original military OD paint. So I thought I would offer it just as it is in case someone wanted to go back to original OD military style with stars and numbers. ….”

1947 CJ-2A Eagle Point, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $700.

It looks like the dash has been chopped a bit.  I don’t think this looks all that bad for the price.

“I haven’t been back to OR in 4 years and with a career in TX, it is unlikely that I ever will. I have a WW2 era military
Jeep at my family ranch in Eagle Point that I would like to sell. I have talked to a restoration specialist who says it has
been modified too many times over the years to be worth restoring to original spec, but that it would make a good toy
for wheeling or hunting.

Frame, axles, and transfer case are all original military spec and in good shape. Engine is an upgraded inline six and
was running years ago, but I wouldn’t even try now without a tune up. The bottom of the body tub was rusted out,
but the structural components are all in good shape. It has been kept covered and dry since I left. I might trade for older paintball stuff since I collect it, and it can be shipped. Nothing other than that.”
