In 1951 my father bought me a 1949 Jeepster pale yellow in color and it did not have the step plates on the rear fender. I was 16 years old then and dearly loved the car. I am trying to find a scale model of the Jeepster so I can display it along with my 1970 Volkswagen Bus scale model ,red body white top that I took my three sons camping here in the West Virginia Mountains. What wonderful memories I have of my Jeepster. Your Jeepster is the same color as mine and my wife claims that my Jeepster was a 1950, but I am quite certain it was a ’49 , 4 cyl motor with overdrive.
