has modern front halogen headlights that work, note the dual rear running lights in their factory external stamped casings of black base with chrome surround and red lenses, all of these work well, NOTE TOO: this has the proper stainless trim on the top of the rear fenders and the side step plates, 

wheels and hubcaps: see the (LINK) showing the Coker Classic wide walls in the 6:70.1 size, showing five wheels with all of the factory hard to get ‘W’ hubcaps, again see the article showing the article about this Jeepster and the colors and wheels along with photos of the actual car (LINK),

engine: since this vehicle was designed to be fun with a weight of only 2459 lbs, it is agile with the very strong and very reliable F4-134 ‘Hurricane’ four cylinder engine with 134.2 cid that has 63 horsepower, the designed long stroke build was set up to yield 106 lbs of torque, the head is numbered 648830, the engine block has numbers of 6482281-L-WY, this equipped with very hard to get factory large air intake system, these are hard to find so nice, the rebuilt 1v carburetor that is fitted with rare and hard to find side factory air cleaner, this engine has very even compression of 110 to 118 across just checked, very even, then highly detailed for show,

Frame and suspension: the famous strong ‘X’ frame is most solid and appears just as factory, this is just checked and then cleaned and then painted black and then finally cleared, the floors of the chassis are also very solid, these were just painted correct black in the recent upgrading, from the observation of this writer, we believe this to be an original, unmolested frame and floors, see the floors in the (LINK),

Running condition: the suspension works great with very good upper and lower bushings, tie rod ends, shackles, and great steering sector, just installed brakes (LINK), this could have had the original shocks when received by Fraser Dante, now just installed are a full set of four heavy duty Monroe-Matic Plus gas charged shocks (LINK),

History of this famous Jeepster Sports Phaeton: The Jeepster was introduced on April 3, 1948 as a sporty, open-bodied car…was designed to be a sporty automobile with a spot in history as the last true phaeton introduced by a major automaker…this very handsome Jeepster had the same front-end styling as the Willys wagon and pickup with a fancier look thanks to Stevens' stainless steel ‘T’ bar in the grille, a European inspired design yielded a higher cowl with a handsome beltline dropped at the doors and then kicked up again on the quarter panels just aft of the doors, a chrome strip ran along the body side a few inches below the beltline, sweeping up over the cowl…note the great fenders with the stainless top trip, the Jeepster is a fun-to-drive yet practical vehicle with its open-air character that appeals to many people of good taste, so easy to drive, great gas mileage, easy to work on with a great aftermarket of parts…Willys built the Jeepster from 1948 through the 1951 model year with the 1951 models are actually 1950 leftovers…here is a great 1950 Model!
