This is fun
I have always wanted one of these Jeepsters. Now I own one. I went to look at a ’57 Ford Thunderbird and I missed the turn and I saw the Jeepster setting next to the road with a for-sale sign and told my wife we need to go look at it. We found the T-Bird but I could not buy it even for the price just to ruff. We were going to go look at a another car and I did not get an answer then remembered the jeepster which was very close by. When I was looking at it the owner drove up and the rest is history. Had a great drive back. we put the top down and drove home 44 miles most of it on I-5. Ran great. When I opened the hood not sure what to expect, it is all stock with that little 4 cylinder F head Hurricane Jeep engine. This engine produced 75 hp (56 kW; 76 PS) at 4000 rpm (although it redlines at 3200 rpm). 3 speed transmission on the tree with Overdrive. Still 6 volt. Top is very good. He did not have the side curtains. The Jeepster was an automobile originally produced by Willys-Overland Motors from 1948 to 1950. Willys developed the Jeepster to crossover from their "utilitarian" type truck vehicles, to the passenger automobile market. They built 5,836 Jeepsters in 1950. I will have Joe at Old School Garage take care of a few small things like the gas gauge not working. Do his service and safety check and it will be ready. Cond. # 3+. I may take this to the Sun Valley auction Labor day weekend?
