This 1950 Willys Jeepster has a highly authentic and well-coordinated look that gives it an unmistakable charm. So if you love a classic that will keep people talking, dig into all the details on this interesting droptop.
This is the father of the modern crossover, because it's a cross between the industrial-grade Willys Jeep and a fun convertible. And it was given a restoration later in life to make sure it still represents that cool attitude. There's nice chrome bumpers and plenty of well-paced trim, including the full line that separates the maroon main color from the gray upper section. There are even more great details to love, like the driver's side spotlight, step plates on the rear fender, and Willys name stamped into the rear bumper. The wheels are a terrific package all on their own with color-matched steelies and trim rings, as well as the bright Willys hubcap in the center. And those whitewalls coordinate nicely with both the soft top of the boot that covers it when the roof is down.
Inside is more of the well-coordinated attitude with the newer carpeting going with the painted dash, and it all coordinates with the exterior paint. This has all the right vintage appeal with two-tone seats, the classic Willys center gauge package, and a dual spoke steering wheel with insignia horn cap. You'll even notice cool details, like the Motorola AM radio on display and the classic-style heater, which is nice for those cold mornings.
The engine bay continues this the Jeepster's level of authenticity. In fact, the 134 cubic-inch Hurricane motor is believed to be original to the vehicle. This is closely related to the famous Go Devil engine that was used in the first military Jeeps, and so it's as reliable as an American soldier. The motor is not an all-out speed demon, but the same torque that made the Jeeps great in the mud is the same that will get this Jeepster off the line nicely. Plus, you have full control over it all thanks to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. The factory overdrive even still works!
Complete with owner's manual, this is a distinct vintage car with a very vintage style. So if you love being both classic and distinct, call today!
