By this point, it's probably become second nature to type up http://www.RKMotors.com and scope some of the coolest classics on the planet. But, every once in a while, we like to get a little crazy and make sure you're still paying attention. Hey, a gearhead is a gearhead, right? We love ALL kinds of people movers -- the more unique, the better! Remember when we showcased a cool Crosley fire engine? How about when we decided to throw you the incredible, investment grade curve ball that was our Hallett Barron Drag Boat? Well, today we're featuring something that, while not very odd, is certainly cool. So, without further ado: professionally polished, fully sorted and cool as Christopher Walken in King of New York, here's one of America's original crossover vehicles!

A creative way for Willys-Overland to expand their legendary truck and SUV prowess into the burgeoning passenger car market, the first-generation Jeepster is essentially a Willys sports car. In fact, available only as a rear-wheel-drive roadster, the truck was officially marketed as “America's greatest value in sports cars”. The folks at Willys envisioned affordable performance for World War II veterans, and the Jeepster, well-optioned in comparison to its competition, wrapped distinct CJ style around the firm's battle-proven Go Devil 4-cylinder. That said, peddled by a niche company against the likes of bullet nose Fords, the original Merc sled and GM's evergreen brand hierarchy, the truck simply wasn't a big seller. And, after just three short years on the market, the original Jeepster was relegated to a curious blip in Jeep's fabled history. But, as we all know, curious blips often become lifelong obsessions for diehard enthusiasts. Are you diehard enough to own one of only 2,960 1949 Jeepsters produced?
