1949 willys jeepster
the willys-overland jeepster, borrowing features from both the willy station wagon and truck, attempted to bridge the gap between
the “utilitarian” post-war universal cj series, and the 1-ton “family-oriented” station wagons and 1/2 ton light-utility trucks.
here is a chance to own a vehicle with its military pedigree and unique styling. meant to fit the civilian market that the work style
models didn’t appeal to.
the convertible top is in great shape both in the color and care of the top and the window not having discoloration.
mostly original, the jeepster has been treated to a new driver quality paint job and new upholstery. the color is not the original. both chrome work on the front and rear bumper are in excellent shape also.
many thanks to our friends at the frontiers of flight museum for allowing us to shoot many of our photos at their location.
please stop in and visit their great museum if you find yourself in dallas. they are located just outside of dallas love field.
moon hub caps all around and on the full size spare are in great shape, an original style to this model.
tires are 205/75 15 and are in great shape. the vehicle shows signs of patina on its metal that gives it more character
of the historical years these vehicles played in our country’s growth. large retro looking grill, iconic to jeep and still used
today in its styling cues of current vehicles.
the 4 cylinder engine runs strong.
this is a 3 speed manual transmission and does not have overdrive.
the front seating is split seating as it is in the 2/3- 1/3 style configuration.
with full bench in the rear area. both seats were fully redone in black with red pipping trim.
the manual convertible top is in excellent condition
the undercarriage is original and solid. very little rust is evident, just surface rust.
