This is an original 1959 Willys Jeep passed down through family members. It is 59 years old and lived on a farm, in Ohio, for most of its life. It has always been covered from elements and well kept. It starts right up, drives perfectly and safely and comes with the original manual, canvas doors and soft top. Yes, this jeep has only 5,100 original miles!
When driven, this jeep turns heads. The condition of this Willys, in its original state, makes it a one-of-a-kind. Very few components have been upgraded, most all are original since purchase. Most all changes are cosmetic - rancho shocks, tires, rhino lining throughout interior, etc..
Over the past year I’ve driven it occasionally trying to not add miles but ensure it stays running perfectly. I am selling this jeep because it rarely gets used (have small kids so not practical), need the garage space and fearful my son may ding it up by mistake. Nobody else in the family has the space to keep the jeep, so it's time to part with this beauty.
Hagerty Classic Car Insurance has determined the value and coverage to be above the starting bid amount.
