    Definitely a 1964. Has those rare taillights to comply with that changes in brake lighting laws.

    Save the Tornados!

    Craig: The definition of a Maverick and its trim is still murky to me. So, I can’t answer that question. It certainly looks like 2nd gen Maverick trim.

    Dan: Cool fact! I did not know that rear light change had happened. I added a pic of the rear lights. So, it is a 63 that sold as a 64 and, thus, had to have the rear light upgrade?

    Yeah, the federal law around rear lights went into effect in June 1966 in the U.S. via the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 ( which was published in June 1965; not sure why Kaiser was ~two years ahead. Today, it takes years from the beginning of an automotive standard to be created, then debated, then finalized, then published. Maybe Kaiser-Jeep saw the writing on the wall.

    Interestingly, those new rear lights seem to only have been offered on the “Willys” Wagon in 1964; the Delivery/Parkway Conversion/Traveller of 1964 kept the tail lights from 1963 and earlier. SAE J586 also played a role.

    And also – I can’t keep the specifics of the Maverick straight, but they do have distinct trim, even when they no longer official were a Maverick.
