    1950 or 1951?

    Hello fellow forum members! I’m new to the group and wanted to reach out to see if anyone has a little bit more knowledge than I do on my 1950 (or 51?) Willy’s. My paperwork showed 1951 but I assumed it was just a leftover 1950 that sold in 51 since very few were made that year. I recently...

    Flat Towing a Jeepster?

    Wondering if I can flat tow my jeepster with a tow dolly? Before the 4x4 folks reply, remember this is a 2wd T-96 3spd trans. Thoughts guys? Has anyone actually done it that can speak from experience? Thank you all.

  7. fuse box

    Hello, I just picked up a 1967 jeepster. There is an electrical short somewhere, so I figured I'd start by looking at fuses and the fuse box. Well I can't seem to find one. I'm wondering if the previous own ripped it out? Or is jeep did individual fuses, which I do see a few. Any ideas? Thanks
