1951 Wagon San Jose, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5400.

Seller has driven this wagon over Hwy 17. That’s a good roadworthy test. I’ve saw more accidents on that hwy in the three years I drove it than I have anywhere else.

I once saw a driver in a car right in front of me, going up hill, lose control, for seemingly no reason, and veer into the concrete median, then cross two lanes to hit the side embankment, then slam back into the median, before coming to rest in the slow lane.  I remember locking eyes with the female driver. Her eyes were big, seemingly saying, “what the hell just happened”. I also had two narrow escapes on that highway where I could have been seriously injured.

“I built this car about a year ago with my uncle. It drives, I had a blast working on it and taking it to and from Santa Cruz, yes it made it over the hill. But I just moved and can’t house it at the moment. Please let me know if you are interested”
