1951 Willys Jeepster was an ingenious design, which combined a
four-passenger phaeton with a soft top that evoked the appearance
of the wartime Jeep. The model was introduced in May 1948. The VJ2
Willys Jeepster offered few options, and the first ones had a
134-CID four-cylinder "Go-Devil" L-head engine. The transmission
was a three-spaced manual with optional overdrive. In 1950, the
engine was replaced by the "Hurricane" F-head engine. Willys
introduced an up-rated Jeepster in January 1949, and a 148-CID,
72-hp six-cylinder, the side-valve engine became optional in July
1949. For 1950, the Jeepster received a facelift to become the
Second Series VJ3 model. The grille became more V-shaped, with five
horizontal bars. The Jeepster has an undeniable charm, and has
nearly universal acceptance among car enthusiasts, equally welcome
in the company of hot rods as it is at Pebble Beach. They make
cheerful summer cruises and are simple to maintain with great parts
availability, which makes them highly desirable. This Magnificent
