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.”

1973? DJ-5 Toledo, OH eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Unusual, Wood bodies • TAGS: , .

This has the short nose, so it’s most likely a pre-1972. It’s an odd one!

“The car is a clean example of a self assembled woody wagon. this is a one of a kind model .I am not the original owner , it was purchased in 2013 in Pembervlle Ohio. The body work was done by a retired highway patrol officer. that had a lot of time on his hands. I would like any interested buyer to inspect the vehicle before purchase”

The frame has been fully boxed and a second fuel tank has been added between the rails in the rear for a total of 20 gallons. It is lifted 3″ with 33×12.50×15 tires that have plenty of tread. There is a Warn 8274 winch on the front and a removable spare tire rack that holds two Jerry cans on the back, when the rack is off there are an additional two Jerry can mounts on the back of the tub. There is absolutely no rust and everything works right down to the fuel gauge, speedometer, blinkers, heater and wipers. It comes with a tow bar so you can haul it or drive it away, it handles just fine on the highway. The little jeep is in great running condition and is ready to hit the road or trail. ”
