Dad's 1951 Willys Jeepster
My father is currently in the process of rebuilding a 1951 Willys Jeepster. I think that it is a fascinating car overall. I am not really used to the stylings of older cars so it is a nice change of pace for my father.
When he was a kid growing up his father had a 1952 Jeepster that was bright yellow, so I think that my father is trying to rebuild it as a present to his dad, and to bring back some of his childhood memories of driving to the beach and camping with his family.
The jeep was in pretty bad condition when he bought it, but at this point the engine has been rebuild and the body has been sanded down and treated to prevent rust. The way that the car looks, I always joke with him that it is a poor mans Rolls Royce. The front end looks like a modified jeep and the chrome styling around the car adds a nice touch.
I think that once this car is finally finished it will be a masterpiece and a nice car to take with the family down to the beach.
