Holy Toledo! This Willys-Overland Jeepster Sports Phaeton has been in the same family for the last 59 years. The truck has been completely frame off restored 9 years ago by Rod Gamache of CoachCraft, and today remains stunning. This Jeepster is restored to stock spec. The body was completely stripped, primed and painted in very attractive, Inferno Red, with Black accents. The chrome has all been re-plated, new convertible top with new boot. The interior is completely restored as well and features split bench seat, original steering wheel and gauge cluster, new upholstery on all areas and carpeted floors. The engine was rebuilt by the capable hands of Thirlby's, of Traverse City, MI. Mechanically, this Jeepster is spot on, the flat head four cylinder engine starts right up with a very cool exhaust note, the 3 speed on the column transmission shifts flawlessly and the overdrive engages for better cruising. In short, this is one of the best Jeepsters ever to grace the floor at GR Auto Gallery and is a quality piece to enjoy.
The truck comes complete with years of service records, restoration receipts, club new letters, notes, etc.
Willy's-Overland Jeepster Sports Phaeton's are elegant, open air vehicles that are perfect for and sunny day cruising. They remain very desirable vehicles to keep at a vacation home. There reliability and simplicity make them easy to own and enjoy. For these reasons, high quality examples such as this are highly sought after.
