“You are bidding on a 1950 Willys Overland Jeep station wagon. I recently purchased this vehicle and have done some detailing consisting mainly of touch up of chips in the paint and restoration of the steering wheel. This Jeep is very attractive and draws lots of attention. It is an older restoration that has held up very well. The body is very solid, and the upholstery and headliner are beautifully redone. The paint color is the original Willys adobe beige and tends to look a little lighter in my pictures. I would not hesitate to take this car to area shows although it is not perfect.The exterior trim is good, but the bumpers should be rechromed. The optional wrap around rear bumper extensions are a desirable extra. The woodgrain panels are very nice, but they are not real wood since the Jeep was the first all steel American station wagon. The glass is all good, and rubber has been replaced. The undercarriage is very clean with only the normal light surface rust to be expected on a vehicle that is driven at all. The engine is the  original Hurricane 4 cylinder  and runs very well. However, a person who is used to driving modern cars will find it to be under powered and primitive handling. It is a Jeep and handles like one.  It would not be easy to find a better and more original Jeep than this. As you can see, the wheels and tires are not original, but otherwise there are no significant modifications. The mileage shown is not correct and probably not a good indication of condition since extensive restoration was done. Feel free to ask questions, and you are welcome to inspect the vehicle.
