“1962 Willy wagon with a history! Odometer shows 99964 TMU. This was originally a government car for the Atomic Energy Commission in the early 60’s. Original owner was an engineer with them and bought it when he left AEC. Wagon has been in Colorado for many years. I started Resto but now have no time to finish. Wagon has been Garaged for past 4 years. . Interior door and side panels were warped so I removed them. Most trim removed to get ready for paint (I have all removed trim) I also have seats front and back stored in garage. Drivers seat still in wagon.

I had started new tack strip install (you can use old fanbelts, who knew?) 3 speed trans with 4WD and Warn hubs. 1 ton Ramsey winch (works). Engine is the 6-226 Super Hurricane. Was rebuilt some years ago by a mechanic for original owner. Engine runs strong. Electrics all work except for turn signal switch. Front floorboards are rusted through. I found Replacements for everything needed at Kaiser Willys. Some exterior rear wheel opening rust as seen in pics but all pretty easily fixable or replaced (KW parts).

Rear gate and window work. Gate bottom hinge is rusted and should be repaired. The rest of the body seems to be solid with minor surface rust. Windshield cracked (KWparts). All other windows are original and work. Wagon was recently filmed as a police wagon hauling hippie prisoners in the movie “Freak Power” Great history and a great chance for a pretty easy resto job! Have a video of it running if you are interested.”

    Yeah, watched a trainload of AEC Willys vehicles auctioned at PDO in Stockton in the mid-70s. Most went to S&S Surplus in Sun Valley CA. (Trucks, wagons and panels).
    This guy probably got tired of seeing a lit outline in the dark
    Warped steel? Wonder why…
    The $6500 will go towards the decontamination of the garage and property.
    (I have a pocket full of these if you’re interested).
    Actually I think it’s a cool piece. I’d take it back to the faded white color with the black stenciling on the doors and add AREA 51 to the cowl.
