This 1967 Jeep Jeepster marks the return of the fun 4x4 to the Jeep
lineup. These had more power and usability then their predecessors,
but you still get that unmistakable look of a two-tone machine
built for enjoyment.
The original Jeepster was gone for nearly two full decades by the
time this re-debuted for 1967. But the bright yellow and white
two-tone of this one instantly reminds you of the fun spirit of the
first gen. It even has the classic-looking full trim package to
divide the two colors. And the full-size spare mounted on the rear
bumper is always a great classic touch. But there's something else
here. This has the face of its contemporary CJ, and the body deign
is sleeker. Plus, those correct/classic Jeep wheels really live up
to the image that the Jeepster was your fun/sporty beach
The white convertible top coordinates nicely with the white upper
section of the exterior, and these new Jeepsters had roll-up door
windows. So this one knows how to button-up better than its
predecessors. But a Jeepster is really meant to be open to the
world. The roof folds back and the black snap-on boot coordinates
with the black interior. The seats, carpeting, and dash pad all
have a nice and deep color with a quality look. Plus, you have
proper bucket seats with a floor-shift center console in-between.
There's even a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner to give you upgraded
driving music while still keeping the full classic atmosphere.
While the Willys four-cylinder motors helped us win the WWII, these
new Jeepsters benefit for even more progress. Kaiser/Jeep picked up
the tooling for the Buick V6 and made it their own. This Dauntless
225 cubic-inch motor is extremely desirable not only for parts
availability but also robustness. This motor was so good GM bought
it back and used it for decades, including for the turbo Grand
National. You're not going to go drag racing in this stock-style
setup, but it is a healthy motor with a newer large aluminum
radiator. And the three-speed manual transmission puts you in firm
control of all the action. Also, true to a Jeep, the 4x4 transfer
case combines with the short wheelbase to let you hit the sand
dunes whenever you want.
This is a cool piece of Jeep history present in all the best ways.
