1949 Willys Overland Jeepster
For sale we have a largely original Willys Overland Jeepster. This is a 1949 production vehicle and features a fully removable soft top which is in excellent condition. The original inline 4-cylinder engine has been removed for a bigger, later model replacement inline-6 motor. Which has recently been sent out and rebuilt professionally at a machine shop. The new engine gives the jeep a little more grunt makes it more enjoyable to drive. The jeep also features the original mechanical fuel pump with a backup electrical fuel pump for use if needed. The gearbox shifts smoothly with a column shifter – 3 on the tree. Interior upholstery is in great shape too with no visible flaws.
Restoration Garage - Season 3
Eccentric entrepreneur David Grainger might like to fly planes, ride horses and race boats but his true love has led him to one career and there is nothing blue-collar about it. At The Guild of Automotive Restorers, David Grainger and his team save the world's rarest classic vehicles. From re-building a one-of-a-kind turn of the century French De Dion, to recreating the multi million dollar Bugatti Aerolithe or by getting the engine of a 1969 Plymouth GTX roaring back to life.
David's crew of automobile mavericks turn rust into gold and deal with all the dents along the way. However, it is not just about the cars. David scours the planet's most elite auctions with friend and investment partner Larry Burns. They often bring back four wheeled gems to fix-and-flip. Shop manager Thomas Douglas keeps the restoration garage machine running smoothly.
