It was the most successful nonmilitary Willys vehicle and over 300K were produced from 1946-1981.
The Phaeton is a unique body style unique to Willys for the Jeepster. The Willys-Overland Jeepster was the last Two-Door Phaeton ever to be produced by a major automobile manufacturer.
A Phaeton is an old-school early 1900s era style of automobile with no permanent top. How it differs from a convertible is that there is no windows either. It is meant as a full open air driving experience, not too dissimilar from pre-automobile motorized carriages.
Much more rare on this site be still sometimes included is the Willys Americar Coupe. A popular hot-rod restoration project for modern enthusiasts. The only model years represented for the Willys Americar coupe are 1941 and 1942, making it one of the rarer models.
