UPDATE: Dan forwarded me the wagon’s plates.
Dan spotted this wagon. He wrote, this ’57 has the rear ambulance doors of a Parkway but the regular side windows of a wagon. It has the GSA plate on the glovebox; maybe it’s a special order?
“1957 willys jeep station wagon almost restored just needs paint and interior. has electric windows, power steering , new brakes and master cylinders, new shocks with a 4 in lift kit , new 8000 lb winch , wire kit , tires and rims , mufflers , radiator , battery , clutch , runs good, starts right up, little smoke when you start it up , has a 283 v-8, runs smooth on highway”
Serial number appears to be 4168 32583. The prefix should be five digits. Working backwards, the it is possible the ‘8’ refers to 4×4 and ‘6’ refers to the L-head six. The ’41’ could refer to a wagon. Maybe the ‘5’ that should be preceding the 4186 is covered?
The government plate serial number of 32583 matches VIN plate. There is not stamp indicating the military branch served by this jeep. Date of Delivery was July 1957.
Nice looking wagon. This was for sale last year.

What you are about to see is a rare 1962, Willy’s Utility Wagon. This is an original survivor and was the very first one off the production line in 1962. It has the original engine, frame, and body with matching numbers. Its teal blue paint mimics its original factory paint color. The exterior and interior is all real wood which is Koa and red oak trim. It has a Hurricane 226 motor that purrs like a kitten. This unique Willy’s Wagon is a four wheel drive with a high and low in good working condition. It also is a manual three speed transmission on the floor in good working condition. We believe this was either an ambulance or city, county, or state work vehicle because of the original light on the roof. All electrical is working and we have reached over 70mph with it for highway driving (but its not recommended due to the speed limits back then were 55mph). This is truly a rare unique piece of history because there is only a handful of original survivors left in the world and being #1 off the production line.
UPDATE: Back on eBay.

“954 Willys Station Wagon
Engine L6-226 Flathead straight six (original model not original motor)
4×4 transfer case High, Low, or two wheel drive.
It’s been 21 years since I picked this great piece of American history more or less abandoned out of the backwoods of Maine and brought it home as my first truck I owned as a 17 year old. My family and I began the 2 1/2 year restoration project. While it was a learning experience as well a family project well worth every second of work. It has now come time to get it in the hands of another owner. I have decided to let her go to invest in a Home. Engine runs great and drive train works perfect. Brakes have been bled and have been a bit spongy but they work. Custom Stereo, 3 alphasonik Amps, JBL subs, Digital Signal Processor, Pioneer separates. Custom interior and Paint with airbrushing. Won a best in class award at a Car show years ago. We sandblasted the whole body and it had minimal body damage. Could be a great frame off project or a minor TLC work and drive and enjoy. Yes it is a hard thing to pass along but its time. It has been garage kept since I got it. I have a full photo album of work done. Only serious buyers please. Not many of these in this condition left. Plenty of extra parts along with it. Time to Let this baby go to a good new home. Another baby on the way. . ..”
Unclear how much of a project it is. It runs.
“Good running project, have some new parts that go with . I don’t have time to mess with it, looking for 4×4 with room to haul kiddos and doesn’t need a lot of work.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $650.
Engine stuck, but may have parts value.
