This is my 1950 Willys Jeepster. My dad purchased it in the 50's. He gave it to me 6 years ago. Since then, he passed away (3 yrs ago). I wanted to restore it as a tribute to him, so I painted "In Memory of Bill Kiser" on the back tire cover.
I completely restored it from the ground up. This will be driven daily now that it is finished. I put a Fat Man front end and an 8” Ford rear end in it. The engine is a Chevrolet 350/330 with a 350 trans. It has new 2-chamber FlowMaster exhaust. New wiring harness with the whole car rewired and all new gauges, except the original clock. It has all new interior, convertible top, boot, and side curtains. All the chrome has been re-chromed and the stainless polished. New two tone paint is blue and gray. Basically this is a new car except for the frame and the sheetmetal.
I had some very good people working on it and accomplished this in only 5 months. Which as you all know is almost impossible.
This is a very important car to me and will always be in my family. It was also my Dad’s pride and joy for over 50 years.
