Carpool Ready: 1949 Willys Jeepster

I love driving classic cars for my daily driver, because life is too short to drive something boring. However, I do have kids, and occasionally I get a sideways glance from a parent when we’re doing a carpool or ride-share with kids to-from a soccer game. While a ’65 SportWagon might not have the latest auto-braking safety gizmos, I think this next thing would make it so I never have to do another drop-off or pick-up…I think I should buy it. At least it passes the social distance test. Find this 1949 Willys Overland Jeepster offered for $3500 in Napa, CA via craigslist.

Restored 1949 Jeepster, runs well. Was retrofitted as a vineyard tour vehicle, just don’t need it anymore.
