    Beautiful wagon at a bargain price, in my opinion, worth a lot more. The paint job is a superior example of base coat – clear coat re-finish 2 stage paint job.

    I don’r read anything that states that damage was done when the brakes failed. Flipped? that’s a stretch… My impression is that after being a care giver and suffering the loss of a loved one, too many memories associated with the wagon, reason for selling.

    No worries Mike. Somehow I managed not to include that text in my version of the post.

    Wonder how tweaked the frame is. Say the body needs to be completely replaced. You could put a nice body on this frame and transfer over all of the trim and little pieces.

    In my opinion, it’s courageous to invest in a high dollar paint job that’s not stock (when the rest of the rig is stock). That said the custom paint (pre-roll) came out beautifully and everyone can do whatever they want with their Willys.

    Another short story to deal with this subject. Back in the 1960’s, (Oh no, Not Again) There was a International Harvester Truck, Willys Jeep Dealer in Passaic, NJ by the name of Golden Sales & Service. Old man Morris Golden always walked around with coveralls and greasy hands. You could say he was a “Hands on” type of guy. Then there was his son Geoffrey, every day he wore a suit & Tie with an overcoat, even in the summer, a overcoat. Anyway, Old man Morris had the gift of gab, (even with the cigar in his mouth) and being the great salesmen that he was, Took in a lot of trades on old clunkers including an old rusted early 50’s wagon that sat on his lot for years, just couldn’t get rid of it. Well, as luck would have it, Morris had sold a new Willys wagon to Passaic Park News service back in 1962, and some years later, the owner rolled it and traded in on a Wagoneer. Well, Morris, being the wise man that he was, viewed this as an opportunity to “kill 2 birds with one stone”. He cut out the entire passenger side section and roof panel from the old wagon and welded it into the new 1962 wagon. WA-LA! painted it red & white and sold it for a nice profit. Where there’s a will there’s a way, end of story.
