YAK Car Pic of the Day

The original Jeepster was manufactured by Willys-Overland Motors from 1948-1951. They were all convertibles equipped with either a four- or six-cylinder engine. The Jeepster was supposed to help pump up Jeep sales, which up until then consisted of the world-famous original Jeep, and the all-steel Jeep station wagon, which was introduced in 1947. Although not a huge seller, the Jeepster filled a gap in the Willys lineup until the more conventional Aero sedan arrived for the 1952 model year (the Aero was discontinued after the ’55 model). This yellow Jeepster (no, it only seems like they were all yellow) was spotted a few weeks ago in the Town of Niagara.
