1962 Wagon Maverick? Colchester, CT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

Andy shared this one. It’s supposed to be a Maverick. That leads to the age old question, what is a Maverick. According to Grover’s site, the Maverick should have a serial number prefix of 58147. Some folks have argued that only the true Maverick was only made in 1959 (and was the first wagon to have a one-piece windshield).

“Willys Mavrick 4×2 Needs work, does not run has Buick V6 engine, standard on the floor. Rear quarters, door bottoms, floors, rockers were done once. Still have rear gate and glass but was converted to delivery doors only for the reason that my dad was “didn’t want to crawl over the gate to get stuff out of the back”. I have original trim to put back on it.I had big plans but life is life, sick of looking at it. Dont know miles on engine or wagon.Was my father’s and was our family car when I was a kid. If your not serious than let’s not waist each others time.”

    Yeah, I forget the exact definition of what is and isn’t a Maverick, but I thought the ones with the extra chrome trim around the windows (like this one) were indeed Mavericks.

    This wagon has been for sale for a l-o-n-g time, so long that even though this is the same picture as before, the tires look deeper in the mud. I think it has potential, with the V/6 in it, with some horse trading, a deal could be made.

    As to the Maverick, not a Maverick controversy, what do I know? I DO know this, Back in ’69 I hand a 2 wheel drive wagon with the extra tiny trim around the windows, (no spears on the hood, that was later) I piece windshield, 2 piece tailgate window, I never considered it a Maverick. It did have that basket weave look around the instrument cluster. Bought from a junk yard across the river in Wallington for $50.00, free delivery to my driveway.

    Back in those days, the Maverick designation wasn’t important, just a tie-in to the sponsorship of the Maverick TV show. Always thinking of new ways to sell more vehicles, the 2 wheel drive wagon was marketed as the Maverick. No matter how you look at it, still the same old 2 wheel drive “cracker box” wagon. Cracker box is what we called it in NJ, 2 or 4 Wheel drive.

    I have nothing more to say on the subject, I’ve rambled enough. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

    Hi Arnold,

    This may have sold, but I can’t say for sure. If I see it listed again I’ll send you an email.
