Parade Highlight Vehicle: 1949 Willy's Jeepster

There is an old car owners advice that says you should buy a condition 1 car and drive it until it is condition 2 and then sell -- the difference in sales price might be offset by inflation/appreciation but it certainly will cost more to refresh that car back to condition 1. (Read more about "conditions" here.) Others suggest starting with a condition 2 car (less of a premium) and driving till it is condition 3...but I'm gonna suggest a different tack --  you buy this next Jeepster and just drive it till you die.  Find this 1949 Willy's Jeepster offered for $10,700 in Bokeelia, FL via craigslist. Tip from Dascpcu.

  1. From what I've seen on Hagerty's and Hemmings, this is attractive. And it's pronounced 'Willis,' right? But WE know that.

    FWIW..John North Willys died before any Willys associated company made any 4WD.
