When a 1928 Willys Whippet Model 96 surfaces in the collector car community, would you expect to find it as Deal of the Day on the internet? No? But that’s just what happened this week as Unique Specialty & Classic, a classic car dealer in Minnesota, listed their rare Whippet for sale on the Cars-On-Line website.
Here is an interesting piece of automotive history. This 1928 Willys Whippet Model 96 was the successor to the Overlands. Look through the dozens of detailed photos in the ad to see the motor, a 134 ci inline 4 cylinder. This was so advanced for its time because it had a full pressure oiling system and pump circulated coolants. It later would be the engine found in the World War II era Willys Jeeps.

Because the price is so affordable compared to other vintage cars of that era, it will be the Deal of the Day on Sunday. The asking price is only $13,900. They say it runs and drives great.
