1956 Wagon Spokane Valley, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3800

Runs and drives, but could use some work.

“56 Willys 4×4 Station Wagon, collector’s plates no yearly tabs to buy. New fuel pump, rebuilt carb, new rear brakes including wheel brake cylinders, grease seals and guard. Last owner told me motor was rebuilt and it appears to be rebuilt as compression checks out and is uniform between all 6 cylinders. Has Willys Super Hurrican straight 6. Motor runs quite. Bought for fun and bug out, while working on it to get it on the road I realized my disability makes it to difficult and is to hard on me, so hopefully you will benefit from my misfortune. You can drive it on property to see it does drive, but this old girl does need restoration.”

“One of a kind ex show truck. Chop top, sedan delivery, Vista Cruiser wagon roof, tubbed rear with a nine inch Ford. One very cool piece of vintage memorabilia. At one time this truck was a show winning street beast. It sat neglected for years and now needs a total redo. It has rust, especially on the passenger side fender and hood. I have a very nice hood and perfect fender to go with it. The only parts I don’t have is a decent passenger door bottom and rocker. These can be built or bought.

Closeup Photos of a Tender

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .


On Sunday Ann and I went to visit Rich and the “Tender” jeep wagon/truck he has for sale. The truck is in pretty rough shape, but the shell of it could be re used. However, there are lots of bees. The bees limited my ability to take pics, especially of the inside.  Yet, it was the inside of the truck that demonstrated the vehicle was definitely not a factory jeep.

My theory is that someone saw one of these Tenders in Israel. Inspired, when they returned to the states they built a few of these, hence the reason several look the same. They must have had some skills, because the top looks great on the top. It’s only on the underside of the ceiling that you can see the seam near the back. Moreover, it looks like a flat fender hood channel is used along the underside of the ceiling to provide support.

tender-truck-adams-oregon6 tender-truck-adams-oregon5
On the outside of the back of the top, there’s a crack in what appears to be some bondo. The quality of the work is again good and matches the other side.


It looks like the top of the sides of the former wagon has been capped. There appears to be cracks forming along the metal (see pic above … note crack about an inch below the top of the rear of the bed).

Other pics and notes:

The tailgate was not finished. The lip on the top of the tailgate was left as it was. The area underneath the tailgate window at the back of the cab looks like it might have been blocked with wood. I did not look too closely. This “Tender” was modified with a spring over axle, but the original spring perches were left.
