For Sale or Trade Exceptionally high restoration quality on this first year '48 Jeepster. Yellow paint with black vinyl seats and black convertible soft top and side curtains. Hemmings reported some background on the popular Jeepster: "In car-starved post-WW II America, Willys enjoyed a healthy share of the consumer market. In 1948, Willys built 135,528 vehicles and generated a profit of more than $6.5 million. The company introduced the Jeepster on April 3, 1948, rather late in the model year, and this sporty, open-bodied car has a spot in history as the last true phaeton introduced by a major automaker.The handsome Jeepster had the same front-end styling as the Willys wagon and pickup, but with a fancier look thanks to Stevens' stainless steel T bar in the grille. While slab-sided like other Willys' offerings, the Jeepster had a higher cowl, the beltline dropped at the doors and then kicked up again on the quarter panels just aft of the doors. For a lower look, a chrome strip ran along the body side a few inches below the beltline, sweeping up over the cowl.The Jeepster was designed to be a sporty automobile, so Willys offered it solely as a two-wheel-drive model. This model was originally equipeed with Overdrive, but it's currently not operable on this Jeepster.
