    If you look closely at the “Wood Grain Paneling”, you can see a split down the middle of the panel that was installed in two pieces. If you are going to go this extreme to restore a vintage vehicle, why cheat? Take the extra time and do it right one section at a time.

    Back in 1969 when I had my 60 Willys wagon with a Earl Scheib paint job, (was worth the $44.95) I used wood grain contact paper and did it in one piece. Ok, so some may consider it slob art but it held up for years and it looked like the real thing. I really don’t get this latest fad of restoring a Willys Wagon by hanging a plywood veneer on it;

    The Willys wagon was innovative for it’s time because of the very fact it had an all steel body; putting wood on it a step backwards.

    Alright, I’ve rambled enough. More trivia from my Willys memory vault.

    I bought some replacement “wood panels” for my ’85 Grand Wagoneer a few years back. They really helped with the overall appearance, made the old ride look new again. I just don’t see it making much sense on the original and older wagons that never had it to begin with. Oh well, still a great looking vehicle though.

    The fake or in some cases real wood panels may look good or bad, but never look correct. Same with interior panels. I appreciate the hard work involved with shaping, sanding and finishing but in the end they always look “added On” not original. Guess it depends on the overall look you’re going after.

    I like the comments above. I always appreciate the variety of opinions I read on eWillys. Mine opinion is, even though this is not may first choice in color scheme, this is a nice Willys Wagon with a 6-230. It’s very unique and gives me some ideas of what to do and not to do on my wagon.

    Don, Good point about the engine color; sharp eye & good memory. The OHC engine color was unique to that engine.

    Three weeks ago, I bought a good running F6-161, and the block was yellow, with a more golden shade of yellow showing where the paint had peeled away. So, it was repainted yellow a second time. The seller taught me that 6-161 engines were originally yellow. I’m assuming that the underlying paint is original.

    And now I’m learning that the 6-230 engines were yellow, too. I’ve only seen grimy Tornado engines in the past, including the one I have out of a Gladiator PU. Internet searches concur with the yellow color on Tornado engines, too. Thanks for the lesson, Don. Some day, I’ll have a Wagon with a 6-230. I just need to find the right body and frame so I don’t have to fabricate engine mounts or cut out the firewall. This beauty above outclasses me. My friends wouldn’t recognize me driving such a nice vehicle. (lol)

    With all the comments about the wagon and its fake wood trim, the most obvious thing I noticed on the listing is that it is called a 1962 Willys “Jeepster” 4×4 wagon. The Willys station wagons were never called Jeepsters by the factory or the dealers. The Jeepster was a separate and distinct vehicle that was not a 4WD and it was a Phaeton or convertible and only appeared in its true form from 1948-51 with the 51s being leftover 1950 models.

    It isn’t a bad example of a Willys station wagon in spite of the wood trim and a few other minor items.

  8. Mike Finegan

    I think the use of the word Jeepster in advertising has a lot to do with the fact that Money hungry individuals with very little knowledge of the vehicle they are selling, are looking to cash in on the popularity of vintage Willys vehicles. I noticed many of these over the top Willys vehicles are displayed in a showroom with the dealers name plastered throughout the advertising. This is the difference between the dealer and the Willys Jeep enthusiast; we have an appreciation and respect for vintage Willys Jeep vehicles where as the dealers only see $$$$$$. I know I get get too serious sometimes about mundane subjects nobody else cares about, but this needed to be said. If every body starts cashing in, guys like us will no longer be able to afford a Willys.

    You’re so right, Colin. I missed that label on the description, too. But yesterday I saw a CL ad that described a Willys Jeepster Pickup. My curiosity opened up the ad guessing it was a half-cab commando. I was irked when it turned out to be a Willys pickup. I do have patience for those who don’t know, such as when a friends wife bought a vintage postcard for me with a Ford woody in the scene proud that she found an old postcard with a Jeepster on it. (I didn’t correct her when I thanked her, lol)

    Mike, you said a mouthful! …my sentiments exactly. I don’t have patience or compassion for dealers who have something bright and shiny and don’t know what they are selling, with a primary goal of finding some poor sap who has money burning a hole in his pocket.

    I also agree that “our types” can get too serious about trivial things that only matter to us.

    Nothing mundane about the subject Mike. I think you’re right on target, as is Steve. After all, isn’t this why we can’t wait to open up Dave’s wonderful website every day. If “our types” had a nickel for every time we heard someone refer to a CJ as an army jeep, life would be grand.
