Garrett Classics is proud to showcase this very nice 1950 Willys Jeepster with convertible soft top. This car is a pleasure to drive. Enjoy the video above, and extensive photos. This car is located at Garrett Classics and available for inspection by appointment.   The Willys Jeepster was only produced for three years (48-50). Overdrive was standard with the 3 speed manual tranny. They shared their drivetrain, suspension, and drum brakes with the Willys Station Wagon. The flat topped rear fenders were from the Jeep truck line. There were just over 19000 Willys Jeepsters produced in total, with 5,836 produced in 1950. Its price tag of $1,765 was very substantial for the time and the Willys Jeepster never really caught on with its intended customer segment. Now however, they have become very collectible.

The exterior paint and body show well. The doors open and close tightly as does the hood. This Willys Jeepster showcases a nice restoration. The front bumper does have some chrome chipped in an area.   The convertible top assembly and side curtains are in excellent condition.   

The interior is in great shape. The custom leather upholstery is excellent front to back. The dash and instruments were removed during the restoration and dash refinished. The instrument cluster is functional except for the temperature gauge and fuel gauge. The speedometer works & an aftermarket AM/FM CD Stereo & Sirius unit have been installed.   The hood latches were not original, but the owner added them because he owns 4 of these and has had the hoods pop open on occasion. This was the best way to prevent that.  

The engine compartment is very clean and detailed, displaying the Hurricane 4 engine. The firewall is in great shape, the insulation was replaced during the extensive restoration work. The inner fenders and core support also have excellent metal. The paint shows well throughout the engine compartment.   The underbody appears to be exceptionally solid throughout.  The side steps were not an option in 1950, only in 1948 and 49, however the owner liked the look and decided to add them to his Jeepster when he had it restored in 2004.
