1959 Wagon University Place, WA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $14,650.

This looks like a nice wagon. The hub caps are actually for early wagons (probably these aftermarket ones), but they do look good on it.

“It has the original flathead hurricane 6 engine and 3-speed on-the-column. It was delivered on 3/5/1959 to the original owner in Tacoma. I bought it from a widow and started fixing it up almost 20 years ago. At that time, we did new paint inside and out; new upholstery; and refinished the woodwork. Then it basically has been stored in the garage since then. My wife said it has to go, so recently it got a new exhaust system, battery, carburetor, distributor, plugs, fuel filter. Bumpers re-chromed. Tuned up and brakes checked. The mechanic says it is running, shifting and braking well. Undercarriage in good shape. Odometer likely turned over 100K

Very straight body. Have the hood ornament and a few cosmetic parts/pieces for buyer. Also have the original Owner’s Manual and Service Records, along with the receipts for all the work I’ve had done on it. Must see to appreciate. Face-to-face transaction, cash only, no trades. Do not contact me unless you are a serious buyer with the cash.”

This one sold pretty quickly. Was priced at $5500. I thought the front bumper was worth noting. Was this an aftermarket bumper of some type?

“‘Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is very proud to offer you this ultra-rare, rotisserie restored 1955 Willys Kaiser 2-Door Sedan Delivery Wagon 4×4! The recipient of a 3-year no-expense spared, nut & bolt rotisserie restoration of the highest level, I feel safe to say it is most likely the finest example of its kind in the country! Finished in its factory correct President Red / Palm Beach Ivory, I think it’s also safe to say that it features the best-looking color combination available in 1955.

The wagon was in excellent original condition before the rotisserie restoration and was basically all there in its original form w/ absolutely no rust & no body damage whatsoever. Every single component inside & out was disassembled by hand and the body was placed on a rotisserie. The body panels are laser straight all of the way around, and the President Red / Palm Beach Ivory paint was polished to show-quality condition w/ a brilliant shine throughout. The bumpers & small pieces of brightwork were re-chromed are look ‘as new’. Every single component on the truck was completely restored or replaced w/ factory NOS parts. She sits on the original painted 15” Willys America 5-lug steel wheels, wrapped w/ Denman 7.5 x 15 tires. You can walk around this wagon a hundred times and not find a bad angle or a single distraction. It is as close to ‘flawless’ as you can get, period. The undercarriage is as nice as it is on top w/ every single component completely restored or replaced w/ factory NOS parts (see undercarriage photos).

Open the driver’s door and you will find a beautiful tan interior restored to ‘factory new’ condition throughout. All of the chrome trim pieces on the dash have been completely restored and all of the lights, blinkers and factory original gauges are in perfect working condition. The original steering wheel, factory original seats, headliner, painted dash, door panels, door handles & cranks, shifters, Hurst hardware, etc. are all in 100% ‘as new’ condition. No corners were cut and no stone was left unturned making sure that everything looked ‘factory fresh’ from front to back. Open the rear doors and you will only find more of the same, including glossy red paint throughout w/ beautiful oak cargo bed strips & matching spare wheel & tire. Even the screws & washers on the oak cargo bed strips are absolutely ‘flawless’. Please look closely at the photos and I think that you will agree that this is the finest ’55 Willys 4×4 Wagon that you have ever seen in your life!

Pop open the hood and inside the beautifully detailed engine bay you will find the fully-rebuilt #’s matching Continental ‘Super Hurricane’ 226ci 6-cylinder motor dressed in its factory correct colors, w/ all of its factory original components, including the oil-bath air filter, Carter 2V downdraft carburetor, mechanical fuel pump, 6-volt electrical system, 6-volt generator, Autolite tar-top battery, Fram external oil filter, etc. The motor is linked to the original Borg-Warner T-90 3-speed manual transmission w/ original Dana 18 transfer case, which feeds power to the original Dana 44 rear axle (4.88 gears), and the original Dana 25 front axle. The Warn locking hubs up front were added during the restoration. This amazing 1955 Willys Delivery Wagon 4×4 runs & drives beautifully, but it is truly the kind of vehicle that should be placed into a museum or high-end show truck collection.”

1950 Wagon/Tender Grand Rapids, MI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $25,900.

(03/12/2017) Cool build. It’s by far the nicest “Tender” build I’ve seen.

 

1950-wagon-truck-tender-gr-mi0 1950-wagon-truck-tender-gr-mi1 1950-wagon-truck-tender-gr-mi2 1950-wagon-truck-tender-gr-mi3

For most of us the classic car world is about standing out with some attitude, and it doesn’t get more custom or unique than this. After all a 1950 Willys Jeep Pickup is already going to draw a crowd, but when it has been fully custom built with a new V8, overdrive transmission, upgraded suspension, custom interior, A/C, and much more, then you will always be the coolest custom everywhere you go.

The handsome, upright body says Jeep as loudly as any CJ, and it’s a familiar face the world over. But this icon is also instantly recognizable as a fully built classic. After all, a rare unibody pickup with an extended cab is a cool sight. Plus, it’s the purple and beige gives this nearly 70-year-old steel a healthy dose of modern luster and shine. The gloss does a great job of highlighting all the ribbed details that came in the panel stamping (they were originally for strength, but now just increase the cool factor.) The old and new world styles blend on the brightwork where the grille, trim, and bumpers combine nicely with the 15-inch Boyds alloy wheels and bright exhaust tips. Plus, the rear bed has both form and function with the color-matched tonneau, marine-grade carpet underneath, and bright LED taillights. In total, you can tell someone spent extra time and effort creating this cool Willys.

1948 Willys Overland ‘City and City’ Ad Campaign

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Willys Wagons

Originally published in 2013, this updated post includes better images (though a few still need better images) along with the dates of publishing (at least the ones I’ve found so far). This campaign appears to have been limited to 1948. There are thirteen ads in all. They appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, and Life Magazine (and likely other places).

1) The “A Hit in Boston and Buenos Aires” ad was published in the February 07, 1948, issue of the Saturday Evening Post, page 108.

1948-02-07-sat-eve-post-boston-buenos-aires-campaign-pg108

2) The “At Home in Portland and Paris” ad was published in the March 06, 1948, issue of the Saturday Evening Post, page 115. It was also published in Colliers Magazine, January 24, 1948, page 58.

3) The “Hailed in Minneapolis and Mexico” ad was published in the March 20, 1948, issue of Collier’s Weekly, page 68.

1948 Popular Homecraft’s Wander Wagon Junior

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Willys Wagons, Wood bodies • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: The complete set of plans for the Wander Wagon is shown below. Previously, I’d only had the first part of the build scanned.

In 1948 Popular Homecraft Magazine did a two article series on the construction of a home built Jeep Station Wagon. The name for the custom wagon was the Wander Wagon Junior. The project was shared with readers over two issues, the 1948 Jan-Feb issue and the 1948 Mar-Apr issue. I was finally able to locate a copy of the Mar-Apr issue, so now the full build is shown below.
