This is listed on eBay, but is a classified ad and not an auction.

“GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this highly restored, 1930 Willys-Overland Whippet 96A for your consideration. Capable of driving a comfortable pace of 50 mph, and getting near 50 mpg, the Whippet is truly an incredible car. The Whippet was built in Toledo, Ohio. The car spent most of its life in Minnesota and then Michigan. 8 years ago it was completely restored, and the process took 3 years.

Perhaps the most unique thing about the Whippet is the center of the steering wheel. It is a horn, light switch and starter button all in one. The 2199cc 4 cylinder side-valve engine fires up and runs as it should. It features a vacuum fuel system. It features 4 wheel brakes, lots of vintage Willys pictures and documentation, fender mounted spare, and a large trunk space.

The paint shows very well and the chrome glistens in the sun. It rides on its wooden spoke wheels that were hand painted, with whitewall tires. The brown cloth interior is in remarkable shape as well. It appears that all nuts and bolts were preplaced at the time of restoration as well as the grease fittings. The black vinyl top is like new. These cars are few and far between, to find one in this condition is truly remarkable. To see over 80 photos of this car, including under carriage please visit our website”
