Here is some history on the Jeepster Model from Willys - 

Borrowing features from both the Willys Station Wagon and Truck. the Jeepster attempted to bridge the gap between the “utilitarian” post-war Universal CJ Series. and the 1-ton "family-oriented" Station Wagons and 1/2 ton light-utility trucks. Following the end of WWII. the Willys-Overland company chairman recognized the importance of expanding its offerings to include a civilian passenger car. and with the help of industrial designer Brooks Stevens. presented a model more likely to appeal to younger market segments.

The original Jeepster was first released to the public on April 3. 1948. Offered only in rear-wheel drive. the vehicle had some trouble gaining traction with traditional Willys customers. The 1948 Jeepster was powered by the “Go Devil” 62 hp. 134 cu in straight-4 engine. with 3-speed manual transmission. drum brakes. a single transverse leaf spring suspension and rear driveline similar to what was used in the Willys Station Wagon at the time. With rear fenders like those used on the Willys Truck. nbsp;the Jeepster. was appreciated by design critics. Unfortunately. due to lackluster marketing efforts. and competition in the passenger car market. the Jeepster was phased out completely in 1950. with a few leftover models sold under the 1951 model year. and was never produced again. making them a rare. early model from Willys.
