1950 Willys Jeepster
NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY
The Jeepster is an automobile originally produced by
Willys-Overland Motors from 1948 to 1950. It was developed in hopes
of filling a gap in the company's product line, crossing over from
their "utilitarian" SUVs and trucks to the passenger automobile
market. The basic model included numerous deluxe features and
interior fittings in addition to a high level of standard equipment
that cost extra on other automobiles. A total of almost 20,000 were

journey back to its original glory. This is the convertible version
of the Jeepster meaning it has front buckets, and a rear bench, and
a convertible top. Looking at the lines of this early truck turned
car, one can see the original Jeep design coming through, but still
maintaining the family sedan look.
Plenty of surface rust, paint chipping from previous coatings,
scratches, and some invasive rust, the exterior panels need TLC.
The car is a two-tone version with red covering most of the
vehicle, and a band of black making its way around the passenger
compartment. The grille V horizontal trimmings are missing, and
extra turn signals have been added hanging from the front fenders.
A rear taillight modification has moved from the posted taillight
to an inserted light. Convertible top is in poor condition. Some
invasive rust is noted on the passenger rear quarter panel.
A complete and thorough restoration will need to be performed as
seats are dry rotted, and coverings are coming off them. The
correct seating framing has been installed, with a larger front
drivers' double seat, and the passenger's bucket. A bench graces
the rear. Floor is rusted through in several areas, and original
dash has lost its luster, but does have the spun patterned aluminum
gauge cluster pattern.
A Willys "Go Devil" L Head 134 with a Carter 1-barrel carburetor
and a warner 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive is attached
to the back. Currently this engine does not run or have a
Plenty of surface rust virtually on every surface underneath. It
appears on the floorpans there are areas of invasive rust through,
as well as the rockers have rusted through. A new fuel tank has
been put on.
A project car that can have great styling with the V chromed front
grille, making it look less "Jeep-like" and more car like. It needs
a lot of TLC or could just be used for parts to complete another
restoration. Plenty of work here but in the end, a restored example
brings good money.
