HIGHLIGHTS: Clean old Jeep ready to hit the street! Nothing says Jeep more than a classic Willys, and this bad boy would be a great summer cruiser. You would have a tough time finding anything that encompasses the simplicity of a classic 4x4 like this Willys Jeep does!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this old Willys has a nice clean appearance, and while it's look has been slightly modernized by the paint color and the addition of aftermarket wheels, there's no mistaking that classic Jeep shape. The body is straight, and it's clear this Jeep hasn't been abused since it was restored.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint is what we think really makes this Jeep stand out! The graphite paint color looks fantastic on this thing, and updates the look just enough to keep things interesting. Glossy paint is not something most people associate with a Willys Jeep, but it sure works for this one!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Though somewhat bare and basic, as one would expect the interior is in equally nice condition to the exterior. Sometimes, simplicity is better. The black vinyl seats are in great shape, as is the dash and gauge cluster. The gauge cluster has been supplemented with aftermarket gauges. There is no radio, no air conditioning, heck, there's not even a heater. This Jeep is sure to deliver an authentic “Jeep experience.”

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The beautiful simplicity of this Jeep continues under the hood. Unlatch the hood, lean it back, and you'll be greeted by a Willys 'Hurricane' 4-cylinder. This is what would've been original equipment for this Jeep, and while this puppy is no speed demon, the Hurricane is a hardy little powerplant. You're probably wondering how this Jeep drives, and the answer is as simple as the vehicle itself: it drives like a Jeep!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The classic styling and traditional simplicity.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're looking for a go-fast, easy to drive, burnout machine this is definitely not it.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This Jeep needs a few tweaks, most notably the temperature gauge, emergency brake, and windshield wipers.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a fun and affordable toy!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle.
