1960 Wagon Four Door Dayton, VA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Unusual, Willys Wagons • TAGS: , , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on ebay

(last listed on ebay in Jan 2015) “This is a custom, one-off Willy’s Jeep. It was made for Henry Kaiser, when he retired to Hawaii and became involved in tourism and land development. He had the custom pink long-wheelbase Willys wagon built for exploring the island. Kaiser’s wife loved pink and all of his construction equipment was painted pink, so that seems to be where the pink color for the Jeep came from. This can all be seen on the following web page, along with a photo (which is the black and white photo provided in the photos of the vehicle) of the Jeep in Hawaii : http://cj3b.info/Siblings/SurreyHawaii.html

We also have documentation from the Kaiser Jeep Corporation stating that this Jeep is an authentic one of a kind Jeep. Please only serious inquiries only and please do not try to convince us that we are wrong about it being a one of a kind, this is most definitely not a railroad Jeep. We know what we have and are willing to answer questions of those with serious inquiries about this vehicle.”

====================

The seller claims to have documentation to prove that this is the only four door limo-like wagon made. to Willys Country this wagon was once used as a limo for an airport. Whether there was only one built or remains an undocumented issue at this point. Is the wagon above the same one that’s in the photo below? Hard to say for sure.

1962 Wagon Maverick? Colchester, CT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

Andy shared this one. It’s supposed to be a Maverick. That leads to the age old question, what is a Maverick. According to Grover’s site, the Maverick should have a serial number prefix of 58147. Some folks have argued that only the true Maverick was only made in 1959 (and was the first wagon to have a one-piece windshield).

“Willys Mavrick 4×2 Needs work, does not run has Buick V6 engine, standard on the floor. Rear quarters, door bottoms, floors, rockers were done once. Still have rear gate and glass but was converted to delivery doors only for the reason that my dad was “didn’t want to crawl over the gate to get stuff out of the back”. I have original trim to put back on it.I had big plans but life is life, sick of looking at it. Dont know miles on engine or wagon.Was my father’s and was our family car when I was a kid. If your not serious than let’s not waist each others time.”

“This is a western car that was brought East. It is the original body mated to an 83 Ford Ranger chassis and uses the Ford running gear, V6 and automatic. Lots of changes like reversed doors, power windows, electric wipers, power seat, remote door openers, custom taillights, custom bumpers, tinted glass, dual exhausts, custom paint and more. This is a street rod and it is licensed and on the road, driven only in the summer but driven everywhere. It runs along fine on the turnpikes and keeps up with traffic at any legal speed. I am downsizing my collection so I am not interested in any trades.”

1955 “Tender” Scottsdale Auction Mid-January

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Turns out we discussed this back in early 2016. http://www.ewillys.com/2016/03/13/1954-wagon-tender-garner-nc-ebay/

1954-tender-truck-jackson-barrett-auction6

Very cool, but not an original 1954 truck (it is listed at Barrett Jackson as a 1954, though the text suggests it was a 1955 model).

1954-tender-truck-jackson-barrett-auction9

Scott Gilbert alerted me to this upcoming truck to be auctioned at Barrett Jackson.

Over the years, following a discussion with an Israeli jeep fan named Or, I’ve applied the designation of “Tender” to this style of truck. At the time, he’d sent me a copy of brochure and translated the model as a “Tender”.

Since then, I’ve been searching for an original US version of the Tender, but have not found one. So, while not beyond the realm of possibility, I highly doubt this is an original 1954 Tender for the following reasons.

1954-tender-truck-jackson-barrett-auction7The seller of this truck is describing it as a 1954 Truck and the serial number is claimed to be 55168 10001. However, as of 1954, the serial number system used was the 654 XX2 prefix system (the “X”s standing for various letters) to describe 4WD Willys trucks. It wasn’t until 1955 that Willys Motors adopted the 55168 system, but that year that prefix started with 55168 5001. At some point, there was a 55168 10001 produced, but that would have been late into the1955 year.

1954-tender-truck-jackson-barrett-auction

Consistent with a 1955 build, the 1955 55168 trucks model was defined as a cab only version of the Willys truck accompanied by the Super Hurricane engine, same as the truck herein. The “bed” of the truck could have been built from a wagon, so that might be consistent, too.

1954-tender-truck-jackson-barrett-auction8

However, the speedo shown wasn’t produced until late 1956ish. The Willys emblem used on the hood and on the glove box looks more like an Aero emblem than a jeep emblem. The hockey-stick styling of the external chrome didn’t appear until 1960(?). Meanwhile, the two piece windshield was discontinued in 1960. So, there are major inconsistencies.

I’m sure there are other issues that folks can add to this list.

Here’s the listing: https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1954-JEEP-WILLYS-4X4-PICKUP-225070

Here’s the Tender’s description:

“This 1954 Willys was built as a 1955 model and is Serial #0001. A piece of Willys Jeep history, this example has 2,122 original miles and is equipped with 4-wheel drive. It’s powered by a Super Hurricane 226ci 6-cylinder engine backed by a T90 3-speed manual transmission and Dana 18 transfer case. The exterior was repainted in its correct shade of tan.”

Upgraded full floater axles, axle shafts, pinions etc..

There’s some surface rust on the underside, but is has been covered under a car port and car cover.. all of the parts needed to get it running and driving are here, boxed and labeled, just put it all back together and she’ll be ready to go.. The only item I know it needs are a water pump and Battery. Three of the five tires hold air for at least a month, the other two for a day or so, enough to trailer it home. But the wheels/tires are old and will need to be replaced once it’s road worthy .. Asking $5900/obo, running/driving would be worth well over $10k, could be a flipper if you’re handy, I can deliver for additional fee to be negotiated!”
