Gateway Classic Cars of Indianapolis is proud to feature this 1949
Willys Jeepster. Coined as the first ever crossover vehicle. The
Willys is certainly a landmark vehicle on the automotive history,
springing from the end of WW2, Jeep trademark owners wasted no time
putting their own line out on the market. With the induction of
their wagon and truck vehicles, the Willys came in the line-up as
an answer to stump the competition. However, gaining no popularity
at the time due to an underwhelming amount of low advertisement
success, the Willys never gained the notoriety of the public and
only 19,000 made it through production between 1948 and 1950. The
big reason for it's failure at that time was that it reminded to
many of our "now at home G.I's" of the commonly used German
vehicles; which decades later became the "Thing" as produced by
Volkswagen. Despite the years passed since, ironically enough this
generation of Jeeps have become sought after among collectors in
the Jeep realm. This Willys still rightly equipped with the 2.2
liter 4-cylinder referred to as the "Go Devil" packs a punch needed
for the "daily driver". Mated only to the 3-speed manual
transmission that shifts smoothly through the gears. This Jeep is
ready to be enjoyed by any classic car enthusiast! For more
