Description for Willys-Overland Jeepster 1948

Completing a recent rotisserie restoration, with under 400 miles driven since completed, this is unquestionably one of the finest examples of a Willys Overland Jeepster available today. The restoration included all new glass, new wiring, interior, top, boot and carpet.

Dressed in a turquoise exterior with black interior, this is a unique opportunity to own a truly rare automobile.
From 1948-1950, Willys-Overland produced the Jeepster in an effort to move away from simply utilitarian vehicles and offer a fully-capable vehicle that wold appeal to the passenger automobile market. Providing several standard high-level features that were options in competing models, Willys hoped to capture consumers attention a utilitarian vehicle that had a greater luxury feel. Though the Jeepster was well regarded by those who owned them, little advertising and a limited dealer network led to the vehicle being phased out after the 1950 model year.
