    look at the basket weave trim — same as the original station sedan — the ultimate pre-kaiser 2wd willys wagon –> F-6 CUSTOM –> ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM !!! — the F-6 engine is right at the lower limit of modern freeway travel — my 53 aero-eagle F-6 is more than happy to drive the speed limit ( 60 ? )

    I bought one like this back in 1969 (basket weave) paid $35.00, towed it home behind my 67 Jeepster using a rope with my friend “crazy George” steering. I sold it a month later for $100.00, the engine was froze up when I bought it. Two months later, I experienced that very same wagon, pass me up on the highway. Another satisfied customer.

    i forgot i have a similar vehicle — my 1950 model 673 was the custom wagon for that year — L-6 161 LIGHTNING ENGINE — T-96 TRANNY — R-10B OVERDRIVE — BALL AND TRUNNION DRIVESHAFT — SPICER 23 Rear AXLE , 4.88 GEAR RATIO — THE BODY WAS A SEMI-METALLIC ROOT BEER BROWN , WITH FACTORY TAN COLORED PINSTRIPES ON THE UPPER SIDE RIBS OF THE BODY AND ON THE BACK — of course when i bought it from a radical STANFORD professor , it had a BAN THE BOMB and other weirdo BUMPER STICKERS ON IT – I SPOTTED IT DOWN BY STANFORD , IN A FIELD , HALF BURIED IN MUD , NOT DRIVEN FOR YEARS — WHEN I NOTICED IT WAS A 6 CYLINDER MODEL , I HAD TO HAVE IT – IT ALSO HAS THAT RARE 6 in circle EMBLEM ON THE FRONT OF THE HOOD — IN ALL MY YEARS OF WILLYS DRIVING AND REPAIRING , I HAD NEVER SEEN AN ORIGINAL 6 CYLINDER 148-161 WAGON — I SAW THE ENGINE , ONLY IN MANUALS – NEVER UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL — OF COURSE THE 1952 VERSION HAD THE UPGRADED F-6 161 HURRICANE — NEVER SEEN AN ORIGINAL ONE OF THOSE EITHER ?? — WHERE DID THEY ALL GO ?? — MY THEORY IS – THE 148 – 161 ENGINE WAS NOT AS STRONG AS THE 4 CYLINDERS , THE 6’S WERE SHORT STROKE MILLS , 4’S WERE TORQUEY LONG STROKES — WHATEVER – THEY SEEM TO BE QUITE RARE — THOUGH MORE COMMON IN THE 49 TO 51 JEEPSTER

    Neal Jung, What a great story, always more interesting when a vehicle has a story behind it. Your description of the brown color, semi metallic root beer brown is perfect, unique in it’s own way, something I could never describe, root beer brown fits it perfectly.

    P/S The one I dragged home was “Spinach Green”.

    This brochure is probably for the 1953 Model Deluxe Station Wagon, since the F6 Hurricane wasn’t available until 1952. The 1953 Deluxe models had the basketweave appliques on the upper reliefs, they also had the three pointed hood emblem, two on each side and one back towards the windshield. We had a Luzon Red 1953 deluxe wagon in 1955-56, 4 cyl, with overdrive. My father survived a head on collision in that wagon with a Chrysler being driven by a woman who lost control and came across the center line and hit him. Had a grey/grey 1951 wagon with 4 cyl. and overdrive, came to Arizona from Illinois in it Jan. 1952.
