“I am testing the waters to sell or trade my Willys. If sold I am asking $24K. If trade I want something equal in value or possibly cash on top.

This 1959 Willys Wagon Maverick was restored a few years back by a coffee shop in southern California. They reportedly spent $30K to get it finished. Unfortunately, that coffee shop went tits up so they sold the Willys to the guy I purchased it from. This car is a nice driver not a show car. It has power windows, power steering, A/C, Heat, CD with bluetooth. It has a chevy 350 motor with an automatic transmission. This thing gets lots of attention. It will come with the original vintage roof rack and some other odds and ends.  Car is registered in TX but has a CA title in my name.”
