About Willys Jeepster
Initially designed for soldiers on active military duty, the Willys Jeepster stands ready, willing, and able to do whatever you ask. This Jeep dates back in production to World War II. Then, military leaders saw great use for its rugged, utilitarian design and off-road travel capabilities. The Willys Jeepster has simple, no-frills design, with plain, straight side panels, a short hood, and a steep, wide front face. This classic car comes in several body styles, including a two-door convertible and a wagon. As with many cars, you can see improvements in aesthetics and engineering, along with more advanced features, in models of successive years. A Jeep from the early 1940s comes with the basics — an engine, two doors, and subtle detailing. A later model, such as the 1950 Willys Jeepster, offers a retractable roof, elegant front and rear fenders with a chrome finish, and an attractive chrome front grill. Curves and intricate detailing replace the hard, sparse lines from Jeeps past. Newer models have cloth seats, power steering, and a more powerful engine. Although no longer in production, you can look for a Willys Overland Jeepster in the large inventory on eBay. Search for wagon or convertible models by year, price, color, and more.
