Sweet Jeep: 1949 Willys Overland Jeepster Phaeton

I read in the news the other day that Jeep (or Chrysler or Stellantis or whatever) had lost their case to stop the Indian company Mahindra from selling something that looked like a Jeep. The Roxor looks enough like a Jeep that I’d have called it a Jeep, but I’m not sure how Stellantis can claim much visual IP around a design that dates back to US Military needs from WWII, with various Jeep-like things built by Bantam, Ford, Willys, etc. It would be like Pfizer or Moderna suing another vaccine maker for building a similar mRNA vaccine after being paid to develop and deploy that vaccine by the US taxpayers…but I’m sure that would never happen. Anyway, the Jeepster Phaeton is guaranteed to work every time at least half the time, too. Find this 1949 Willys Overland Jeepster Phaeton offered for $12,900 in Kingman, AZ via craigslist.
