Unusual Hardtop on CJ-2A Vancouver, WA $1000


Marty checked out this jeep yesterday. He was most curious about the hardtop and got a bunch of photos of it for us. He believes the hardtop was a custom creation, but well done. The curves and drain edge are a nice touch, too. As for the CJ-2A, there’s not much left. The seller believes there is plenty of value, but Marty smartly disagreed.

” I have a 1942 Willys Jeep civilian four-wheel-drive that is pretty rough looking on the outside but everything is there motor tranny running gear everything complete with a set of extra leaf springs all four an extra radiator add an extra gas tank all stock all original I’ve done some checking on the Jeep Willys and I know what it’s worth in the condition that exam no reasonable offer will be refused please come look I need to get them out of here”

Odd Jeepster-like Jeep Hot Springs, AR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE II: This *might* have evolved into a scam. The seller agreed to sell to one buyer and provided directions to get the vehicle, but now is avoiding the buyer’s calls. 

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $900

Here is an odd one I spotted on Facebook. It reminds me of Bob’s odd Jeepster-like vehicle.

image image image

“This is a very strange “Jeep like” vehicle that is not a Jeep. I was told that it was possibly a specialty vehicle built in the 60s and that it originally had a 4 or 6 cylinder engine that the previous salvage yard owner removed and sold. 2 wheel drive. No seats or top frame. It has full length curved metal running board fenders that Jeeps never had. It also has a center console that housed the shifter. It was originally painted a coral pink color so the possibility exists that it was a resort shuttle vehicle. It is NOT, repeat NOT, a Jeep Surrey model! They look nothing like this “thing”. No engine or transmission. I saved it from a salvage yard over 10 years ago. It has 14 inch “A.J. Foyt” mag wheels that probably are original. Rusty but restorable. Buy it for $900 firm, fix it up, and have the only one out there.”
