The Willys Jeepster was an ingenious design by Brooks Stevens, which combined a four-passenger phaeton with soft top that evoked the appearance of the wartime Jeep. The model was introduced in May 1948 with the thinking that returning GIs would be sentimentally attached to the appearance. Most GIs, however, were looking to move beyond the military, and sales were disappointing.
The VJ2 Willys Jeepster offered few options, and the first ones had a 134-cid, 63-hp four cylinder F-head engine. This engine was well suited to the Jeep, which was smaller, lighter, and designed to slowly navigate difficult terrain, but was not optimized to carry four people at anything above 50 mph on the highway. Transmission was a three-speed manual with optional overdrive.
