The shorted lived yet classic original Willys-Overland Jeepster, was the last Phaeton body style convertible to be produced by a major automotive manufacturer. This old school completely open (no protection from the elements) design was popular during the early days of the automobile when motorized travel was seen more of as a luxury than necessity for daily life. Known colloquially as the VJ, The Willys Jeepster was designed to be the sports car or sedan of the Willys-Overland product offering. It was slotted to fit in between the Willys Station Wagon and Truck intended as urban and passenger vehicles, while the CJ lineup was believed to be primarily focused on farmers, foresters and other rural applications.
