Jeepster Prototypes

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster

I was doing some research on GBW’s FC 170s when stumbled upon several Jeepster prototypes listed at the American Jeepster Club along with some other Jeepster specific information.  Below I reference 3 prototypes found on the history page.  Please visit the American Jeepster Club’s ‘Willys-Overland Jeepster History’ page to learn more.  The fourth image is a 1979 Jeepster Prototype press release I found at — it seems to me it was a good idea NOT to develop this one.

    I’ve heard they actually built two of the top ones, they were the Willys Alcoa all aluminum coupe. Rumor around here (northeast ohio) is that Goodyear was using one to test tires and somehow it ended up at the bottom of Wingfoot lake. Supposedly still there.
