1950 Willys Jeepster 2dr Phaeton Convertible, Go-Devil! 4, 3 speed w/ Overdrive
This 1950 Willys-Overland Jeepster is ready for summer cruising. This Go-Devil powered, open air, drop top is ideal for California skies, where this particular has lived most all of its life. She has lived a pampered life, proudly wearing Concours D'Elegance badges on her dash dating back to 1963. The current caretaker has kept her in climate controlled storage, professionally maintained, and occasionally driven for the past decade. This vehicle has been professionally inspected by an independent 3rd party professional as a condition of consignment.
Opening the hood reveals a factory stock appearing engine bay, complete with the torquey iconic GO-Devil I4. Shine it up and proudly display it at the next Cars and Coffee, or drop the hood and head up the PCH. Either way, she's up to the task.
The exterior paint is in likewise excellent condition, and the inspector only noting two scratches on the top of the rear bumper and minor dimpling and crazing in brightwork. Brightwork can be easily polished to restore that like new gleam. The top fits and seals well, no creases or cracks, factory side curtains included. The paint itself is nicer than one would expect from a car that is driven on enjoyed.
Interior is in very good condition overall, showing patina on the chrome and bright work consistent with an unrestored original componentry. The most significant flaw is the driver's side kick panel (see photo). The original radio is intact, but not operational. All the other gauges and accessories are in fine working order. The soft trim, including seats, interior panels, convertible top, and seals are in excellent condition.
The undercarriage is clean and dry and finished in satin black, not Concours detailed. Everything is solid and in good working order, in very good driver quality condition.
If you are looking the original Sport Utility that is both factory original and can actually be driven and enjoyed, then this is the Jeepster for you!
