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.
