These rare white-metal replicas by U.S. Model Mint have been commanding high prices as of late. The version by MMC will apparently have the "Station Sedan" badges replicated in photo-etch metal as well as separate windshield wipers and the high-end grille trim.

If the new model is anything like MMC's previous '49 Jeepster then expect it to sell on eBay for nearly double.

I haven't seen this one, looks great but pricey for me...there has been several others on ebay that went for big bucks as well, I found the the same Willys for $80.00 from Google - Willys Toys...the lister was trying to sell his as old antiques...I'd rather buy something for my project...

WOW! I want one of each! I've got a '50 jeepster, same color... I've never seen either of these. There's a pickup also, tan or brown - I passed it up @ $75 a few yrs back, now it's $100+

You could buy parts w/ that $100... on the other hand - my wagon needs a $10,000 infusion. I'm not so much a mechanic as a frustrated model builder all grown up and working at 1:1 scale reassembling these things. And the trouble is, with this economy and daughters college tuitions, etc., I've had to scale down the projects - there's no more budget for any full size parts.

Here's a snapshot of last winter's jeep project - my M170 ambulance - as the ad says - "restored military ambulance as mock-up, $10,000... two AMT 1:25 'Daisy Duke' CJ5 model kits, $25... jeep therapy for chronic willysitis, PRICELESS!
