The VIN checked out. It is a Hurst Jeepster.

Even though it is 1/100 and 65 are known to exist they are out there. A simple Google search and tons of info shows up. If I spent 10k fixing it up to original condition I might make some money when I sell it.

If I spend the 10k and make it my own I still might make some money.

This Jeepster is not a 69 302 Camaro

It is not a good looking Jeep. The Champagne White is just fugly. The V6 put out a wopping 160hp and 235 pounds of torque. Yawn. They sit way low.




Despite all this the upside is crazy.

I voted restore. As much as Id love to see it linked on 37"s or 40"s. 1/100 is too rare to not restore.

Its not even a Jeepster. Complete Chevy drivetrain including chassis and a CJ5 front end. Only the tub is Jeepster.

Point Taken.

I would not pull the body and slap it on a Chevy truck.

If I do it I would keep as much as possible to keep it a Jeepster.

I agree. The color is horrible. Even restored it will be ugly.

That is why I am leaning towards lift, axles and tires and of course paint.
