1949 Willys Overland Overland Jeepster
Willys Overland Jeepster
"Though designed by American Bantam and produced by Ford and Willys, the Willys 'Jeep' was an American war hero. After the war, Willys turned to famed industrial designer Brook Stevens to produce civilian versions of its Jeeps, including a station wagon that in many ways was the original sport utility vehicle and the Jeepster, a four-passenger phaeton-style vehicle that provided an open-air driving experience.Fewer than 20,000 Jeepsters were produced between 1948 and 1951, powered by a four-cylinder 'Go Devil' engine that at the start of production put 63 horsepower to the rear wheels."

For sale by owner is this beautiful Overland Jeepster. The current owner just recently acquired this vehicle from a family friend (the original owner) and his knowledge of the vehicle is limited. Originally from Canada, the odometer shows 23,426 miles and is believed to be correct, but is being sold as exempt because he has no documentation. Upon receiving the vehicle it was sent to his mechanic to be made road worthy. New brakes, springs, exhaust, muffler, fuel tank, sending unit, wheel bearings and tires were installed this past summer. It had a repaint in the original color a number of years ago, with general maintenance as needed. A number of non stock addition were installed over the years as listed below.
