1948 Willys Overland Jeepster
The Matching trailer is available for $12,500.00
This complete original car was found 6 years ago with 10 other Jeepsters that had been in a warehouse for 35 years. This was the 44th Jeepster I have restored and by far the best I have ever done. It has been my personal car and made the trip to CA. and back and Canada and back as well as other Jeepster trips. The 90 HP F-161 has 3300 miles on it and has plenty of power To pull the trailer. I would leave now and drive it anywhere with confidence.
No expense was spared in this concours quality frame off restoration. The interior is new and the top is high grade canvas as well as the top boot and side curtains. The gauges have been restored and calibrated. The entire car was stripped to bare metal and and undercoated. The body has 3 coats of primer then 2 coats of Dupont base coat and 3 coats of high quality Dupont clear coat that was cut and buffed between coats. The frame is all undercoated.
The 90 HP F-161 engine was blue printed and balanced and the original 3 speed, with overdrive were completely rebuilt. Nothing was compromised during this restoration, right down to every nut and bolt.
It has new Coker radial tires, new hub caps, beauty rings, mountain brakes and wheel cylinders, master cylinder, brake lines, shocks, battery, fuel pump, clutch, pressure plate, plugs and wires, main bearings, re-built crank, rod bearings, pistons, rings, cam, valves, guides, valve seats, gaskets and seals, and all new exhaust.
It runs great. It will do 70 MPH and all the chrome is show quality and complete. The steering wheel is new, as well as all of the glass. The wiring is completely new and color-coded to factory specs. The car is 12 volt with solid state ignition. It also has chrome driving lights . Its not shown in the photos but the entire steering column and shifter is show quality chrome.
