1947 Sedan Delivery Bismarck, ND $25,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , , .

Looks like a great wagon.

“”REDUCED” Titled as 1947, probably a late 50’s, Willys Panel Wagon with 4-cylinder Hurricane motor, 2wd, 3-speed on the column with a B-W overdrive. I got it on a trade, looks like they did a good job with the restoration. It’s solid, runs and drives great, everything works. A real head turner. I installed front disc brakes for safety, new rear drum brake shoes, new glass in doors, new carburetor and a backup camera. Decals can easily be removed. Interested in TRADING for a mild v-8 vehicle that is HWY drivable long distance. Will consider 50s – early 90s chevy trucks, prefer auto trans with a/c. Must have a clear title, not just a bill of sale. Located in Bismarck, AR. Three three seven 2630696″
