Description:

1950 Other Makes WILLYS JEEPSTER

This 1950 Willys Jeepster was originally built as a 4X4 in the early 70’s by a man who was a founding member of the Chuckwalla Jeep Club. The reunion sticker is still on the spare tire carrier, 1956 – 1996. The last few years have seen an amazing transformation of the original build. With Power Steering, Power Disk Brakes, Upgraded Suspension, Four Speed Overdrive Automatic Transmission and a New Chevy Crate 383 Engine, it runs and drives as well or better than any modern Jeep out there. Because it spent all of its time in Southern California or Arizona going to club events, it also has all of its original sheet metal. There is less than 5500 miles on all of the new parts listed.

This Jeepster is a one of a kind, and really gets the attention. I could drive it to Florida tomorrow, and would be confident the trip would be trouble free. It handles highway driving with ease and tracks very well. As with all used vehicles it will be sold “as-is”, so please ask any questions ahead of time, and please only bid if you have cash in hand. I will need a 500 dollar deposit at the close of the auction by way of PayPal, with the balance due in the form of cash, cashiers check or bank transfer. All checks will need to clear my bank before the Jeepster can be released. It will come with a Clear Oregon State Title in my Name. Thanks, TJ
