Seth spotted this interesting wagon. If anyone can provide any insights into it, we’d find it helpful.
He writes, I found this very rough abandoned Wagon. What made it stand out was the independent front suspension and the barn doors. It looks stock but I have always been under the impression that the Wagoneer Panel Delivery was the first Jeep with IFS. It is obviously a basket case project but if it’s a prototype or something like that it may be worth the effort to restore.
Dan has posted the photos at the Old Willys Forum as well. He suggested it might be a factory special. He noted, Based on the gauges and rear rear wheels, it looks like a 1946-early 1950 Delivery that someone installed an aftermarket IFS (similar to the Mustang II) and cut out the back rear side windows. That said, it could be a factory special.
UPDATE: Still Available.

Glenn bought these wagons, but yard thieves stole some of the parts. email him at email@example.com for more information on parts and check out his updated comment in the comment’s section.
“These two wagons are in my neighborhood and I went over to check them out a couple days ago. I’ve known the 1948 Wagon about 3-4 years and the 1946 has been added to the pile for goodies. Make no mistake, this is a basket case PROJECT, but a project with POTENTIAL. This owner was serious when he went into gear. He disassembled everything, bought new parts galore, bought some more just in case, even had some more body sections shipped in to add to the pile. This road ready chassis with rebuilt motor, transmission, and rear end is ALL Done, including rebuilt accessories like starter, generator, water pump, brakes, radiator, POR Coating, and ON & ON. The bodies are a Maine and a NY origin, media blasted, primed and ready for a mig welder to slice and dice the new panels already purchased. There’s plenty here to make a very nice all steel 2 WD Willys Station Wagon with a pile of extras.”
UPDATE: Still Available

“I am selling the family heirloom, our 1963 Willys Jeep Traveler. It is definitely needing the attention of a knowledgeable Jeep collector. The body is in reasonably good condition, along with all the glass is in good condition. Interior needs to be re-done. Motor was still running as recently as last summer, but has rarely been driven for 20 years. Odometer rolls over at 99,000, I am not aware how many times the odometer has rolled over. Jeep is stored at the family farm in Yamhill”
Maybe the body is savable?

“1960 Willys Wagon, with the original 6 cylinder and 3 speed transmission, and solid axle four wheel drive. The brakes have been re-done, and a new battery installed. The old Willys runs good, and goes down the road good. The Willys still has the original seats. The previous owner repaired the floorboards and the rust above the right side rear wheel well.

“I have a 1953 Willy’s Overland wagon for sale. This is a very cool 4×4 for anyone who really loves the classics and wants a vehicle of this caliber and vintage. The engine runs great. It is a V-6 and doesn’t smoke or burn oil. Body is pretty solid, minus some rust on rear fender wells, but for 62 years old, its pretty nice. The interior seats are in great shape with no tears. The dash is all original and all the gauges work. All the wood on the floor is original and in great shape. So here it is, its a beauty of a Willy, does need some (tlc) from the person who wants to restore it. It needs a headliner, but all the hardware for the headliner is there. This is a wonderful collectors Willy’s Overland Wagon. ”
