The Jeepster has a small production run from 1948-1950 with some of the left over 1950s being sold in the year 1951. This Jeepster is a nice example of a 2-wheel drive convertible drop top designed by Brooks Stevens, with his signature on the dash! The convertible Jeepster is one of the most interesting buy also overlooked vehicles of all time.
The exterior of this 49′ Jeepster is painted in a beautiful fiesta yellow with a black upper two tone. Paired with the black vinyl seats, with yellow piping, it really sets this Jeepster off! The European style certain windows and top is in great condition. Enjoy this car as a show type vehicle, beach cruiser, road cruiser, or all of the above. There’s no way to be behind the wheel of this vehicle and not have a smile on your face, while waving to everyone giving you a thumbs up!
The later model Jeepsters were given the bigger motor called the “Hurricane” or F134 Inline 4 cylinder (134.2 cu in) backed with a 3 speed manual “3 on the tree”. It’s the better of both worlds when it comes to cruising and good gas mileage.
