1967 Jeepster Convertible Lousiville, KY $28,500

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

Tom spotted this beautiful Jeepster Convertible for sale. Unfortunately, it does need a top.

“Listing my 67 Jeepster Convertible for $28,500 OBO. I don’t need to sell it, but I just don’t get to enjoy it as much as I wish so I wanted to check interest and plan to list locally as well. Original condition, just about every option including A/C, mag wheels in amazing condition, I do have a clock w/o base and small trim by the door handles (not in pics). Not original paint, I’ve owned it for 10 years and only have put about 2500 miles on it. 79,650 total. It runs good, it does leak a bit in my garage. Seats are original, small tear in the drivers side. I did add Jeep seatbelts to the rear seat. Body is in good condition, small scrapes, cracks, typical imperfections. Needs top, I have one but it’s old. I was planning to “restore” with new paint and carpet. I don’t see any rust, only starting to see very small bubbles by the tailgate and driver rocker.”

March 1960 Jeep Multi-Stop Truck Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: This post was originally posted July 29, 2016:

I finally snagged this “Jeep Multi-Stop Truck” brochure off of eBay. It is only seven pages. There are no details provided about the chassis used, but it does use the F-head.

The date on this proposal is March 1960. The first ad I have for the FJ-3 is in 1961. My guess is that this may have been 1) a competing idea for a cheap delivery vehicle or 2) the basis for what was restyled as the FJ-3. That AM General made a version of the Multi-stop right after jeep’s general and Military product division was spun off (1971) into the AM General Corp likely isn’t a coincidence.

According to some magazines of the day, the FJ was considered a Multi-stop van, so the description was used, though I don’t believe it ever appeared in any advertising.  For example, this 1959 article except from Google notes the following, “office requirements for pickup and delivery of mail on multistop routes . The Fleetvan ” Jeeptrucks , equipped with automatic transmissions , will feature compact cargo space , high maneuverability , maximum driver visibility ”

Year? CJ-5 Sewell, NJ $2800


Andy shared this jeep. It’s got what we believer to be is a Stratton lift control valve, but missing the lift arms. It is labeled as a 1948, but looks to be a CJ-5 chassis (I had thought maybe it was a 2A chassis, but that does not appear to be the case).

“1948 Willy’s Jeep all paint removed in primer (the one picture shows before primer). Comes with top, doors and plow. Has new tires, new leaf springs and shocks on front. Motor is out and ready for rebuild, head was done some time ago trying to get some life out of it with no success. Solid body CLEAN NJ title. Asking $2800 CASH ONLY SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY!!”
