1948 Willys Custom Jeepster
Why This Car Is Special
The Willys Jeepster was originally produced by Willys-Overland Motors from 1948 to 1950 and was last phaeton body produced by a major automaker!
We have a great custom 1948 Willys Jeepster Roadster here at Skyway Classics that has been upgraded to a Small Block Chevy V-8 engine.
The rare post-war era collectable originally had a flathead 4 cylinder engine that pushed out roughly 63 horsepower, ours takes a big performance leap and has a later model small block Chevy engine with an open element chrome air cleaner, yellow body colored valve covers, tube headers flowing into a dual exhaust system, performance carb, in-line fuel filter, and more.
It is backed by a GM 700R4 automatic transmission as well as power steering and brakes, and the engine sits in a clean and detailed compartment.
The Jeepster rides great as it has a Mustang II front end suspension kit, a Jaguar rear end independent suspension, and has 5-spoke aluminum custom mag wheels with with new Radial black-wall performance tires.
Our Willys has a complete custom Yellow/Black Bucket Seat Vinyl Interior, matching door panels, with Console/cup holders and matching rear Bench Seat and is loaded with options like a Sony Premium Sound Stereo/CD, Tilt Wood Steering Wheel, yellow and black floor mats, middle armrest, and a working black convertible soft-top in great condition as well.
The body work on this 1948 is all steel and has been completely redone in a shade of factory correct Fiesta Yellow paint and all the body panels look tight and the chrome trim and bumpers have great chrome. This Jeepster looks better than new.
These Willys are are extremely rare and this custom 1948 Willys Jeepster Roadster we have here at Skyway Classics is more reliable with a powerful V8 motor and virtually indestructible transmission with a suspension that is more modern and sophisticated, it is a dream to own and drive.
This Top-Down Sporty Willys with a V8 needs to be added to your collection!
