After WW2, Willys-Overland found itself in a unique position as one of the few producers of 4WD vehicles, unfortunately, few people wanted a tough utility vehicle, so plans were made to make a larger, open top pseudo SUV. The new model was called the Jeepster and it featured unique styling and high featured content, but was a killed in the sales race by competitors. Just 2,960 examples were sold in 1949.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this lovely bright yellow Jeepster for your consideration. This Jeepster has been enjoyed by its current owner since 2013 and has been well cared for. It appears to have an older restoration that is showing a bit of patina but is still in excellent shape. The paint is very nice overall and the chrome trim is great. The car sits on red painted steel wheels with great whitewall tires. It has a rear mounted spare tire and a chrome bumper guard, a full cloth top with side curtains is very nice as well. The interior features nice red leather seats, a modern stereo unit, and nice gauges.
One unique feature that sets this Jeepster apart is the automatic transmission and 6 cylinder engine that was installed. The little Jeepster is an excellent driver and cruises very well.
