TheJeepsterwas anautomobileoriginally produced byWillys-Overland Motorsfrom 1948 to 1950. It was the lastphaetonproduced by a major automaker. The original Jeepster (VJ) was first released to the public on April 3, 1948. Offered only in rear-wheel drive, the vehicle had some trouble gaining traction with traditional Willys customers. The 1948 Jeepster was powered by the “Go Devil” 62 hp, 134 cu in straight-4 engine, with 3-speed manual transmission (with optional overdrive), drum brakes, a single transverse leaf spring suspension and rear driveline similar to what was used in the Willys Station Wagon at the time.

This 1948 Willys Jeepster Phaeton is an older restoration that is continually maintained. The pictures should clearly show the cosmetic condition and runs very well and drives like it should.

This Jeepster is located in Newport, RI and is ready for immediate enjoyment.
