For Sale: 1950 Willys Jeepster in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

For most of us, the classic car world is about standing out with some attitude, and it doesn't get more custom or unique than this. After all, a 1950 Willys Jeepster is already going to draw a crowd, but when it has been fully custom built with a fuel-injected V8, five-speed transmission, upgraded suspension, a custom interior, a removable hardtop, and much more, then you will always be the coolest custom everywhere you go.

The handsome, upright body says Jeep as loudly as any CJ, and it's a familiar face the world over. But this icon is also instantly recognizable as a fully built classic. After all, the electric-like blue paint gives this 70+ year-old design a healthy dose of modern luster and shine. The gloss does a great job of highlighting the smoothness in the steel body with the deleted bumpers, shaved door handles, wraparound rear, and custom flush-fitting tonneau. There are more great details, like the vibrant paint pinstriping, sports mirrors, YJ-style headlights, teardrop tail lights, and well-integrated side pipes. You even get the right touches of classic in this modern build with the two-piece windshield and iconic Cragar SS wheels.

The well-fitting hardtop looks good in place, but when you remove it, you can really see how this was made to be a roadster. The sea of blue continues inside, and the pink pinstripe even flows across the smooth dash. Thoughtful builds like this are exceptionally coordinated. So the custom seats, center console, dash, and even steering wheel are all done in blue. And the inserts on the seat match the carpet and door panels. Plus this was built to be a driver's custom classic with details like the well-contoured bucket seats, tilt steering column, and a round gauge package borrowed from a 3rd gen Firebird. Even the custom trunk is quite spacious, so you can enjoy this for a weekend road trip kind of car.

The engine bay has a nice custom style. It strikes the right balance where it's right for a driver's car, and you can give all the bright components a good polish when its car show time. The intake is even painted in a coordinating blue. More than just looking good, this was made to be a driver. You have a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 with the benefit of fuel injection. It makes a nice rumble as it feeds into the cherry bomb-style side exhaust. The original Jeepsters had a solid front end, but this now benefits from a Mustang II-style independent setup. There are also front disc brakes, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and the control of a five-speed manual transmission.

This is a truly cool cruiser with a true practical feel. So if you're looking for that ideal distinct driver's custom classic, call today!
