Thanks to a thorough frame-off restoration, this Jeepster is looking amazing from every angle. Gone is every speck of rust, replaced by smooth Pastel Aqua and fresh chrome, making this vehicle look like the cream puff it is. The rear bumper has Willys Overland stamped in script, while the side steps are chromed for good measure. Correct painted steel wheels with chrome hubcaps which bear the Willys logo on a red field are framed by white wall tires. There’s even a spare tire on the rear, with the same eye-catching combination.

Instead of trying to outshine the exterior, the interior features subtle black upholstery on the front and rear bench seats. Painted to match the body, the dash looks amazing next to the white steering wheel. OE gauges and controls complete the vintage setup.

Finalizing this breathtaking car is the correct drivetrain. A Go Devil 4-cylinder engine has been restored and has a 1-barrel carb. There’s a three-speed manual transmission mated to it with overdrive, making for plenty of driving fun. With the engine and components painted black and the engine compartment painted Pastel Aqua, everything presents incredibly well, making it plain this car will shine at a show.

Willys made the Jeepster from 1948 to 1951. While not plentiful, you can find some on the market, but one this clean is rare. If you’d like to grab this vehicle before someone else does, contact Classic Auto Mall.
