Willys-Overland Jeepster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willys-Overland_Jeepster) Designer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automotive_design)(s) Brooks Stevens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooks_Stevens) The 4-wheel drive Willys Jeep Truck, introduced in 1947 by Willys-Overland Motors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willys), was similar to the Willys Jeep Station Wagon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willys_Jeep_Wagon) and the VJ-2 and VJ-3 Willys Jeepster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willys-Overland_Jeepster). With model designations of 2T and 4T, these trucks were equipped with the 134 cubic inch Go-Devil (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willys_Go_Devil_engine) flathead four-cylinder engine and the three-speed Borg-Warner T-90 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borg-Warner_T-90) manual transmission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manual_transmission) from the CJ-2A (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep_CJ#CJ-2A). The truck received a facelift in 1950 and became the 473, with the new "Hurricane" four-cylinder engine as an option. This model introduced the v-shaped front end with five horizontal bars, as well as an updated gauge cluster. The steps on the side of the pickup box were deleted. After 1950, the two-wheel drive model was discontinued. In 1953, the model designation became 475 and the grille bars were reduced to three. A 226 cubic inch six-cylinder (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straight-6) 6-226 model was introduced in 1954, and sales of 475 models dropped considerably. The 6-226 was dropped in 1962 in favor of the 6-230 Tornado OHC engine.
