It was the Second World War in which a company named Willys Overland got known. At that time, the company, founded in 1908, was building the robust Willys MB for the American military. An off-roader that became known as the Jeep some time later and was also well received by the civilian population. Everyone suddenly wanted to own an all-terrain off-roader. And after the war ended, the company actually started producing civil versions. They called themselves CJ (Civilian Jeep) and they were supposed to change the automotive world. In 1948 Willys tried to introduce the Willys Jeepster Phaeton Cabriolet to cover the desired segments. That was the starting shot for a transition from the robust work equipment of the army to comfort-oriented vehicles for the people. Unfortunately, the classic was discontinued a few years later. This is just about 20.000 copies of the Jeepster, which are currently sought-after collectibles and which are also popular in the Tuning scene are seen.
