Garage Kept Motors is excited to feature is a great 1948 Willys Jeepster four-passenger phaeton. This yellow Willys was treated to an older cosmetic restoration. There are a few minor blemishes and chips in the finish as expected on an older repaint, but this fun little Jeepster is striking with the two-tone yellow and black finish that presents with a nice luster. The bumpers and related chrome trim are largely original showing some light patina and pitting but still shimmer with a nice shine. The red metal wheels feature chrome trim rings and wheel covers and have era-correct BF Goodrich Silvertown wide white wall bias ply tires mounted on them.
Inside the cabin has been restored with new seat vinyl, carpet and the door panels have been recovered. The dash holds a center-mounted gauge package that includes oil, coolant temp and amp gauge, and engine-turned trim face. A manual column shifter handles the transition of the gears. Under the dash is the functional factory heater box. The tonneau cover is newer and fits well. The convertible top frame is included in the sale of this vehicle but is not currently installed and will require a top.
Under the hood sits the 134cid four-cylinder "Go Devil" L-head engine. The engine compartment is unrestored with some light detailing and presents as well-maintained. Underneath the chassis is unrestored. The frame is solid, however, there is some rust through in the front floorboards that has been temporarily addressed. New fuel and brake lines have been installed.
This Willys Jeepster is a great little cruiser and would be a huge hit in your hometown parades and shows. It would also be a great way to transport the kids for some ice cream. Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for looking.
