For Sale: 1948 Willys Jeepster in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1948 Willys-Overland Jeepster for your consideration. This Jeepster is powered by a Ford 302ci V8 which is paired with a DANA 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The motor recently received a tune up and a new slave cylinder was installed. As demonstrated in our overview video, this Willys is a runner. It fires up, idles smooth, and pulls hard.
This Jeepster sports a red exterior which is nicely complemented by a white manual folding soft top. The soft top is surprisingly easy to raise and lower thus making amazing open top driving experiences very convenient. It rides on the factory wheels that are fitted with hubcaps and trim rings. The wheels are wrapped in Goodyear wide white wall tires which contribute to the classic look of this sweet Jeepster. Inside the vehicle is grey with red piping upholstery that shows very well. Other highlights include visors, locking glove box, two-piece windshield, and cigarette lighter. It should be noted that the electrical systems on this Jeepster have been converted to 12V thus making maintenance and repair simpler.
1948 was the first year for the Willys Jeepster. It was a break from the norm for Jeep who were now focusing on postwar stateside sales. They were anticipating that returning GIs would buy them as they came home from the war. It was to be a sportier version of the Willys they had fallen in love with while overseas, a new concept of a sport utility vehicle. Equipped with Go Devil flathead four-cylinder engine and a Borg Warner Synchromesh three speed with overdrive, they were zippy and fuel efficient. However, they were not quite the sales hit Willys had hoped for, and a relatively small number of units were sold making them evermore rare. Please call or email with any questions or for additional information.
