1950? De Luxe Station Wagon Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

There’s no form number or date on this De Luxe Station Wagon brochure. Between the brochure below and this other “DeLuxe” brochure, three different forms of the word “Deluxe” are used:  “Deluxe”, “DeLuxe”, and “De Luxe”. So, I’m not sure which is correct?

Though the below brochure is more consistent with its use of “De Luxe”, the brochure itself is not as luxurious in style as the other “DeLuxe” brochure. I also suspect, given this brochure highlights the Hurricane and Lightening Engines, that this is a later brochure than the other DeLuxe brochure.

One other question. On the back of this brochure it shows a De Luxe Station Wagon in red. Was that actually offered? I don’t see it as an option on the back of the brochure where options are listed.

    De Luxe makes reference to the “basket Weave” on the side panels. Also, the
    seats were a little different

    The brochure would represent the 1952 model year, as that was
    when the Hurricane 6 was introduced.

    I think both David and Steven are correct in that the brochure is most probably for the 1953 model year, as that was a special 50 year anniversary for Willys. The F-head Hurricane 6 was introduced in 1952, the wrap around rear taillights and key start features all came about in 1952 and 53. We had a 1953 DeLuxe wagon when I was a kid, and it was Luzon Red(Same color as my 1948 Jeepster) with the basketweave on the upper panels. It only had the 4 cylinder engine and overdrive.
