1948 Willys JeepsterOnly made for 3 years total. The Jeep brand mostly catered to the utilitarian market-farmers, foresters, workers. They wanted to cross over into the automobile market. They meshed design from the Jeep and convertible cars, then added some deluxe features. It was a sports car for the veterans. Today they are sought after because of the fun factor. It's a good looking convertible that's practical to use. This one was restored to good condition about 20 years ago and not used much since.
EXTERIOR: It presents itself very well. The body is solid, no signs of rust. The two tome paint is glossy. Up front it has bright chrome bumper and bumper guard. The grill trim headlight bezels, hood latches, door handles are all good. The aluminum step plates look like a fun way of climbing into the back seat. In back it has a spare tire with a cover. The rear bumper is bright. To dress them up each Jeepster came with white walls, hubcaps and trim rings. The white convertible top is in nice shape. It has a complete set of side curtains too.

The seats fold flat in back for plenty of cargo space. The passenger seat flips forward for easy access to the back seat. storage in the back The lower front seat has splits. The rest is in good shape. It has carpet on the floor. The dash is paint, gauges are very clean, steering wheel is beautiful.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Very clean and tidy. Original 4 cylinder Jeep motor runs smooth. The manifolds have been ceramic coated. All the components like the carburetor, fuel pump, generator, starter and distributor look fresh. The wiring was replaced with correct cloth wrapped wires, relays and regulator look new.
UNDERSIDE: Underneath this Jeepster is very respectable. It was painted black, metal looks solid. Upfront it has a transverse leaf spring, shocks look new. In back it has dual leaf Springs, shocks look new. Bottom of the motor is clean. It has original manual 3-speed with overdrive. It has a stainless steel exhaust with Mangaflow muffler.
Everything about it says fun, even the name Jeepster is a fun word. Seats 4, I bet you could pile in 6. What kid, or adult, wouldn't want to climb up those step plates. It's called a phaeton because it has a back seat, top goes down and has side curtains for windows- it is adventurous. Perfect vacation home vehicle. With prices soaring on Blazers, Broncos and Jeeps, this Jeepster is a great value.
