Looking at a post from Cliffhnger (Tom?) that was made in January of this year, it seems that there were 75,227 Jeepsters produced from 1967 to 1973. How does that compare to the total number of CJ's that were produced during the same time period? And, is it because of the small production numbers that there are no parts for Jeepsters?

It is almost embarrising to have to explain what a Jeepster is to some parts people. To say nothing for looking for nonexistant rubber parts for the Jeepster convertible only to find that if I had a Henery J or some other car there is all the rubber parts I might want. Try looking in the Metro catalog and see if the apparent availabilty of parts for some other cars is not frustrating when you see how little is available for the Jeepster.

For information, according to Tom's post about 6.2% of the total Jeepster production was devoted to the covertable in the 8701 and 8702 models. However, the most rare is the Roadster and Pickup that were produced in 1973 with 373 and 402 units of each produced. The 67-72 station wagon with 64% produced is the most popular.
