“Listing for a friend. You are looking at a very nice and well detailed 1956 Willys Station Wagon. It is the 4 wheel drive with the Continental 226 engine. It has had a very nice restoration including brand new interior with great attention to detail. Powdercoated seat frames, new upholstery, headliner, floor, etc. All new chrome along with updated stereo as well. New chrome grill. Also has brand new tires including the spare. Paint shows very nice, although has minor rust showing above drivers rear wheel well and bottom right of rear hatch. It also has new wiring and generator under the hood. Attention to detail on this truck is apparent throughout.

The bad part and reason for the very low price, is while enjoying all this fresh work, the engine let go with one of it’s rod bearings and will need a rebuild. It is all complete and has not been pulled out, my friend is just done with it and ready to just move on from it now. No expense has been spared and you will not be dissapointed. Asking 14,000”

    Having read this ad, one of the rod bearings let go, Nice wagon with what was a common problem back in the 1950’s early 226 engines. I don’t know if any body remembers this, it was so common it gave Kaiser Jeep reason to make mention in their overhaul manuals of the importance of marking piston cylinder positions to match them to their original position on the crankshaft. Accuracy was important, bearings could be over or under according to the position on the crank. If I remember correctly, the issue was resolved in later 1950’s -60’s models.
    Rowett’s Garage, an old time Jeep dealership used to stock crankshafts becaue the problem was so common. As of 2008, there was a factory new crankshaft with factory tag still gathering dust, price marked $525.00.

    As a side note,I noticed the upper grille bar is turned upside down also. I’ve seen this same wagon on YouTube many times in my research of how red would look on my own wagon.

    David simply is relishing the ad.
    To communicate with the seller you have to hit the Craigslist link (the blue text) just above the photos.

    Hi KJ (and thanks John),

    Sorry for the delay in my response. It looks like the wagon has sold based on the dead Craigslist link. I’ve updated the post.
