Seller offering a 1948 Willys Jeepster with undisclosed miles for $10,000.  Equipped with a 4-cylinder, 3-speed manual transmission (3 on the tree), and original convertible top that seller says needs to be replaced along with side-curtains.  Seller says it drives well but doesn’t address whether the paint/body is original or has undergone a restoration.

Nearly 20,000 Jeepsters were produced from 1948-1950.  After WWII, Willys produced the CJ (“civilian jeep”), a Jeep Wagon, Jeep Truck, and the Jeepster.  The redesigned 1950 Jeepster is distinguished by its grill which has 5 horizontal chrome bars.  Two engine options were available a 4-cylinder (VJ-473) and 6-cylinder (VJ-673).      Poor sales due to lack of marketing and distribution led to the the discontinuing of the Jeepster in 1950.    Approximately 19,000 were built during its 3-year production run.
