“Meet Daisy! A fantastic and rare 1973 Super Jeep.

Only produced for a couple months in 1973, the Super Jeep was an appearance package created due to a lack of a supply of aluminum wheels needed to produce the Renegade models. The Super Jeep is highly recognizable by it’s outrageous Peter Max – like decal package, white steel wheels, curved chrome front bumper, two tone interior and upholstered white padded dash.

Only 300 Super Jeeps were produced, with only a few handfuls surviving today. The majority of the 300 Super Jeeps produced were made in White or Blue with a few others in more rare colors like this one in Daisy Yellow. Continue reading

1961 FC-150 Kennett Square, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Sold for $19,500 on eBay.

Here’s a John Deere themed FC. Seller included a video.



Here is your chance to own a truly unique, rare, and beautifully restored 4-wheel drive pickup, of which only 1600 were built. This ‘John Deere’ colored Willy’s Jeep was totally restored starting with media blasting the body and frame, cutting out the rust and replacing it with new metal, period correct engine, interior, and wiring in the early 2000’s by an individual in York, PA. There is no rust or rot coming through anywhere. The approximate mileage since completion is about 1200. Current owner purchased the pickup in 2004 and has only driven it to local shows and parades.

Mechanically the Willy’s Jeep runs great; all the lights (headlights, turn signals, brake lights, etc) work like new. Speedometer and odometer function normally, but the horn, new fuel gauge, new temp gauge, and new heater motor were never wired. Owner indicates that they will work without an issue.

Old School Jeeping Photos

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old Images Jeeping • TAGS: .

I ran across these photos today posted by a guy who grew up in the Skyway Cliffhangers Jeep Club, a club based in my hometown of Renton. The photos below highlight the kinds of paint jobs I remember back in the 1970s. As a kid, part of the fun of going to playdays and jeep conventions was to see all the different paint schemes (colors, designs, and accents), tires choices, cage architecture, engine experimentations, and other modifications. You can see lots of old PNW Jeeping photos here:
