    This wagon should have the basket weave on the sides, but my long time friend Al, the seller, says he just didn’t want to put it on there. Other than that, this car is as close to a perfect restoration as you can get. Al’s vehicles are always done extremely well. I hate to see him sell this, but he is downsizing. He still has a couple of Willys trucks, a 49 Jeepster, a 45 CJ2A, a 47 2WD wagon.

    It is a gorgeous vehicle but I am trying to figure out what is “rare” and “unique” about it (seller’s description). It is “period correct” but the vehicle itself is neither rare (few examples left or ever built) nor unique (special within the range of examples built). These terms are heavily overused by folks selling old vehicles as they always seem “rare” and “unique” when owners have them squirreled away in garages and storage units and they are seldom seen by everyone else.

    C,

    Those terms are definitely tossed about pretty freely; I’m not sure what constitutes “rare” in terms of vehicles. There’s also the matter of perspective; while us online-offline jeep nuts see these vehicles almost daily, many folks who don’t follow the jeep world may rarely or never see other vintage jeeps, especially if they don’t travel much. I suppose something could be considered rare within a 50 mile radius, but not so rare on a national level?
