    The Parkman conversion was to take a willys panel wagon, with the barn doors and the rounded wheel wells and put side glass in it like a regular wagon.

    I would assume “parkway conversion body. Way back in the 50’s and 60’s, in many states including NJ, you couldn’t drive a panel truck on many highways. (just cars) If you had windows on a panel body, you were allowed to drive on those “car only” roads. This was a way around having commercial plates on you truck. I know, this is crazy but true story. It was another creative marketing idea from Willys.

    Parkway conversions were done at the Willys factory–Parkway was the main drive into the offices. Most Parkway conversions were done for the US Gov’t. Both the Border Patrol and the US Forest Service used them. The USBP version had a screen between the front seats and the rear and had benches on either side. The USFS version was basically the same without the screen. USBP hauled illegals and the USFS hauled firefighters. Most had PTO winches. Growing up in Arizona, I got to see both kinds in the 50s and 60s. The side glass was one piece and did not open, all used the rounded wheel wells like the 46-49 station wagons and 46-63 panel deliveries, and barn doors.
