1961 Wagon West Linn, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was $10,000. **SOLD**

A wagon with a family history.

Recent restoration. The goal was to keep it looking original while upgrading it to be a more modern driver. It is comfortable to drive on the freeway now.

This has been in my family since 1962 when my Dad bought it as a nearly new vehicle. I still have the title from then. As a result, this Jeep is all there right down to the original oak floor slats and owners manual. I learned to drive in this Jeep. It has never been in an accident. I have a pile of records, receipts and other stuff for it.

Before the restoration it had 153,168 miles on it. There are only a bit over 3,700 miles on it since.

302 V8 (balanced and blueprinted) with C4 automatic
Power front disc brakes
Saginaw steering
New rear axle and brakes (9″ rear end with positrac)
Newer front axle with Warn hubs
Custom 25 gal fuel tank
Rewired including modern fuse panel
Electric wipers
3rd brake light mounted high like newer cars
All new rubber (windows, etc)
New upholstery (all but front seats are original)
New radial tires
Original gauges look an work great
Lots of spare parts”

Scott & his Wagon’s Movie Adventure

• CATEGORIES: Features, Reader Stories, Willys Wagons

Scott’s pre-movie wagon. Note the temporary passenger window.

Scott from Cincinnati shares his experience about the use of his Willys Wagon for a major motion picture. For him it was a positive experience. Thanks to Scott for creating this post!

In early march of this year I was contacted by a production co., showing an interest in pre 1955 vehicles for an upcoming movie to be filmed locally called Carol and starring Kate Blanchett. Apparently Cincinnati’s history and architecture is commonly used as a backdrop to post war NYC. I sent them some pictures and explained that my willys was in running condition and a few days later they called and offered to wrap the vehicle to use it as a prop NYC postal delivery truck.


US Mail Wagon and Dj-5 Mail Jeep


This green color is what they selected.

I sent more pictures and soon had a proof of their final rendering. To my surprise the scenes involving my wagon were less than two weeks away. After not hearing from my contact for a few days, I reached out and was, sadly, informed that the wrap contractor wasn’t able to meet the production schedule.

Somehow the conversation turned to paint as a possibility. Later that evening she found a body shop willing to do the job in less than a week on their dime. Coincidentally the paint color in the rendering was close enough to get them to agree to a very similar Woodstock green to factory.

The following morning I drove the willys there and inspected their facilities and current projects, a berlinetta here, a classics Mercedes there and even a frame off corvair, obviously they were overqualified for the job at hand. Initially the shop was hesitant to take the project on, after they realized how much metal, body and prep would be required. I agreed to furnish all necessary hard parts at my cost and they would provide the paint, as agreed with the production company.


Thanks to Willys Overland for supplying this wagon sheet metal!

So how do you find new sheet metal overnight? After many hours calling the usual suspects, whom all agreed that a driver’s quarter panel was too big for overnight delivery no matter the cost, I finally found an ohio willys parts retailer http://www.willysoverland.com and they promised to have it for pickup in the morning. A buddy agreed to drive to Toledo and pick up the parts and, of course, walcks came through for all of the remaining soft parts and seals needed a few days later, after paint. That Saturday I visited the willys in the paint booth and let’s just say I was speechless. On Monday the production folks were going to the shop to apply their temporary decals and special effects, with filing to occur the next day.

1958 Wagon Kansas City, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was $3000. **SOLD**

(05/02/2014) This might be worth a look. Not running at the moment, but might not take much.

“I don’t know a lot about this vehicle at this point. My father and my nephew worked on this vehicle together. My father had paid someone to get it running and shortly after he got it running it was parked in the barn on a farm. I just recently went down to pick it up to sell it. I know that it is not currently running, but it was running before it was parked. My father has since passed away so I have no more information on the jeep. It is really very cool it is a must see.”

Comes with a Studebaker V8. MIght make an interesting project.

“For sale here is a lovely little 49 Willy’s Overland 4X4 Wagon! Unfortunately, I have to part ways with this little beauty… She has a neat little Studebaker V8 (not running, but not seized) under the hood, and has been converted to a 12V system. Other than that, she appears all original! The overall condition is not bad, but she will be a project! This is a very hard to find Willy as very few of these wagons were made in four wheel drive before they updated the body style. There is NO TITLE on this. Please text me, as that is the easiest way to get me. I am not always able to answer my phone. THANKS FOR LOOKING!!”
