This 1950 Willys Jeepster is the cool-cruising classic convertible that keeps its vintage style correct, right down to the details. So if you love something that is eye-catching and also gets true respect from the traditionalists, dig into all the details on this two-tone droptop.
A '50s classic always looks nice in two-tone. That's especially true because of the way the full trim package encircles the whole car and provides a distinct separating line for the red and black. And there's more nice brightwork on the grille and chrome bumpers with the correct overriders. The whole package is absolutely vintage without looking like the kind of trailer queen that gets nervous about hitting the road (you'll see more of that driver-friendly attitude as you look over the whole Jeepster.) Also, take some extra time with the details. The wheels have a terrific look with a correct wheel cover, white pinstripe, and bias-ply whitewalls. The whole package is even on the rear-mounted full-size spare. And take note that both sides have the correct step plates. It just makes you imagine how this one was a beach machine, and friends getting picked up along the way would just hop in the back without opening the door.
The folding top appears newer, and when combined with the side curtains, it does a nice job of sealing up this classic. Of course, the whole point of owning a Jeepster is being able to enjoy open-top motoring. That's why the two-tone style continues on the inside to give this a nicely coordinated attitude. The red and black are nicely intertwined on the seats, door panels, and dash. And just like the outside, it's nicely detailed with the white piping on the seats coordinating with the factory dual-spoke steering wheel. It keeps the vintage attitude with providing nice features, like the large central-mounted speedometer and a working heater in case the weather turns cold. There's even a proper AM radio still on display.
While this has the appeal of a seldom-seen Willys, the other reason to love these is under the hood. The 134 cubic-inch motor is related to the same hardy units that went into the first military Jeeps. Since these have a cool history, it's great to have such an honest-looking engine bay. And they way this runs strong reaffirms that it has been properly maintained. It goes down the road nicely, especially since the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you a great vintage feeling while also giving you full control over the torque-ready motor.
This is the droptop classic that was made for you to enjoy to the fullest. So if you love two-tone Willys distinction, call today!
