“I have a 1949 Willys Overland Jeepster project car that I can’t complete due to a back and neck injury. The car is disassembled for restoration. All parts are bagged and tagged with photo documentation and comes with the maintenance manual. Powered with a 6 cyl Hurricane engine coupled to a 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The body has new floors and rocker panels installed along with repaired rear wheel wells. There is no rust on the body. If interested, I could share a link that shows the process of disassembly. This would make a great nostalgic camp car for the right person.”

“1949 Willys Jeepster
Another car from my parents collection. They purchased it over 15 years ago from Idaho. Someone did a great job with the later model change over V8 and Auto Transmission, 400 Pontiac Engine. Looks like console and some interior also came from a Pontiac Firebird.
2 wheel drive. We did a minor freshen up restoration including cleaning fuel lines, new brake lines, new battery and new distributor.
No Rust! Convertible Top and Interior are very clean and well taken care of. Starts, Runs and Drives Great.
Really fun convertible car. Prices right. No DISAPPOINTMENTS!”

“This very rare 1950 Willys Jeepster is one of only 5,845 cars built this year. A total of 19,132 Jeepsters were ever made in the years 1948, 1949, and 1950. Compare that to the one year numbers of the 1965 Mustang at 559,451 cars, and you can see just how rare they are. This one is a real Unicorn, because it has zero cancer anywhere I have looked. The areas where they typically rust are just beautiful. The power is from a more modern Ford; it is a 2.3 Liter overhead cam engine that runs very well, and has considerably more horsepower than the original Flathead 4, plus it has Electronic Ignition and a new 60 amp Alternator. The transmission is a freshly rebuilt C-4 3 speed automatic. The original fuel and amp gauge work great as do the aftermarket Oil, Water, and Amp Gauges. The top is in decent condition; just needs a window sewn in. No side curtains, but they are easy to come by. To be a 35K show car it will need new paint and some work done to it, but you can drive it home as it is! This is a real bargain at 8500.”

1949 Jeepster Sales Tool Brochure for the Sales Force

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features, Jeepster This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This unique 36-page Jeepster sales tool aimed at the Willys-Overland sales force likely underscores a general lack of understanding about the Jeepster. It was a different enough vehicle from the utilitarian wagons, trucks and universal jeeps that the sales force may have had a challenge selling it to their standard clientele. That’s the only reason I can think that W-O created this document. I have not seen similar documents for other models.

Note that at one point the document argues that the Jeepster is NOT a convertible and NOT a sedan, but a SPORTS PHAETON. Bill pointed out to me that, like him, I always pronounced Phaeton  “Fay-ton”, with an accent on the first syllable. However, he saw a newsreel the other day and the voice-over pronounced it more like ‘Fay-et-on’ or ‘Fay-uh-ton; distinctly three syllables.

Moreover, the dictionary suggests that a Phaeton is pretty much a convertible or a touring open air car, rooted in a word for an open air four-wheeled wagon. Perhaps some more knowledgeable can distinguish between a Phaeton and a convertible??

Some of these pages worked better when shown together, so I’ve sewn together a few of them …
