1955 Wagon Corvallis, OR $12,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

The seller notes that 1955 was the first year Warn offered the five-ring warn hubs. Actually, they (both the locking and the automatic hubs) were offered as early as 1953, according to at least two different ads. One 1953 ad (note the Feb 1953 Motor Trend Magazine for example was a full blown brochure, while this 1953 ad below was included in the September 1953 Popular Science magazine:

All that said, and back to the original purpose of this post, the wagon looks nice, though it does have an updated engine.

“For sale or trade. I am gunsmith so primary interest is firearms but no harm in asking. This is a great Willys that can be driven just the way it is or you can pursue additional restoration. Everything works, 4×4, factory Warn hub locks (first year those were offered), overdrive, front and rear PTO with a winch on the front bumper. Dual fuels tanks. Older paint still looks good, just not shiny. Seats were all just rebuilt (foam and covering) in a canvas looking modern material. Less than 200 miles on a completely rebuilt and balanced Chevy L6 250 with MSD Distributor and Electronic Ignition. Starts and hums along very smoothly. Steering is vintage and next on my restore list if I keep it. Need $12500 in cash or trade value to consider parting with this fun rig.”

    Listed as a 1955 model, this wagon must have a later model grill with the round vent hole for the heater, 1955 models didn’t have it.

  2. Dan B.

    The speedo and four auxiliary gauges are 1952-1956.5. IIFC, the fresh air vent in the grill came along in 1957.
