Anyone Have the History Behind This Jeepster?

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster, wanted • TAGS: .

UPDATE II: The current owner bought this Jeepster this summer. He was wondering if anyone knows any history on this former Shriner’s vehicle?

==================

This former Grays Harbor Shriner’s Jeepster has even converted to an automatic tranny (probably from a Pinto … looks like one anyway) with a Pinto engine. I love the history on this one. Looks like a great price.

“Rare 1950 Willys Jeepster. Updated with Pinto engine, 12 volt system. Always stored indoors. No rust. Former Shrine clown car. $5,000 Please call, no texting.”

1947? VEC? CJ-2A Santa Rosa, CA $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This flattie has had some work. The serial number of 26676 suggests it is a 1946 VEC, but maybe the “1” was forgotten in the front of the serial number.

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto/d/windsor-1947-willys-jeep/7259009733.html

“This Cheetah Willys Jeep has no rust, the original rebuilt engine, 11 inch brakes on the front with lock out 4WD hubs. The steering is Saginaw retro fit. Tight ride with all new brakes, lines and master. She runs great and is a truly fun ride.

This is the second car I built with my daughter after the 45 Ford Jeep. She also did the Cheetah paint job with me altering stripping the bondo job someone did and redoing the whole body. This car runs really well, fun to drive out in the open air, the windshield is detachable, tail gate opens. (doesn’t come with dog)”

1966 CJ-6 Spanish Fork, UT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500.

It turns over, but doesn’t start at the moment. The Kelly hardtop looks to me to be the Custom Full Cab, rather than a Safari top.

“Price reduced…
This Jeep is actually a CJ6 safari edition. It has a pto pinch with snow plow attachment. I don’t have the plow. The engine turns over but don’t start due to the fuel system being disconnected to be cleaned. Just don’t have time to finish it.”
