COMPLETE RESTOMOD, FUEL-INJECTED 4.3L V6, MODERN CHASSIS, TOP QUALITY BUILD!

Say hello to the original sport utility vehicle. This one looks like a 1950 Willys Jeepster that was restored to factory standards, but dig a little deeper, and you'll find a host of nice modern upgrades to the chassis and drivetrain.

Buttercream Yellow is one of those perfect 1950s colors that looks like it belongs on icons like a Thunderbird or DeVille, and so it adds some perfect elegance to this convertible Willys. Of course it takes a recent profession application of this hue and exceptionally nice chrome trim to really set off this cut-above appearance. When you're looking over a Jeepster, it's the details that are always important. So take note of the correct bumpers, hubcaps, taillights, and all of the other small items that look great and provide true value to this very complete Jeepster. One piece that can never last 65+ years is the original canvas folding roof. That's why this one wears a brand new black top with clear side curtains.

The investment in restoration is also evident in the interior. Jeepsters are easy to maintain, but need to look right. The black vinyl seats in this convertible look brand new, and the pale yellow piping nicely matches the rest of this two-tone interior. The black on the door panels and carpeting look just as fresh. Jeepsters received the Willys standard gauge cluster, which looks pretty cool today. The large speedometer with full gauges sitting just below it all set in a bright inlay is a great '50s touch. But this one also is a bit more modern with a touchscreen AM/FM/CD/DVD headunit that also has navigation. The stereo and the new center gearshift are your first indications that this one might be a special.

Open the hood, and this Jeepster immediately tells its biggest secret. The most powerful motor that came from the factory was 2.2-liter four-cylinder, but this one houses a 4.3-liter fuel-injected Vortec V6. This much more modern motor was borrowed from a 1994 Chevrolet S10 pickup, and it more than doubles the Jeepster's original horsepower figures. Since they grabbed the Chevy's engine, they decided to swap out the whole chassis, too. That means all the mechanical parts are much easier to source, and you get the convenience of features like power steering, upgraded front suspension, front disc brakes, and ABS. Even the cool classic-looking whitewalls are actually modern BF Goodrich tires.

So what you're looking at is a Jeepster that has all the classic appeal you want on the outside, but modern power and roadholding beneath the restored skin. This makes it a true best-of-both-worlds scenario that will never make you think twice about going for a drive any day. So don't look twice, because this one is going fast. Call today!!!
