THE JEEP WAGON

The Jeep Wagon was designed in the mid-1940s by industrial design Brooks Stevens. Willys did not make their own bodies, car bodies were in high demand, and Willys was known to have limited finances. Brooks therefore designed bodies that could be built by sheet metal fabricators who normally made parts for household appliances.

The steel body was efficient to mass-produce, easier to maintain and safer than the real wood-bodied station wagon versions at the time. than the Jeep Wagon.

Today an icon as four-wheel drive vehicles continue to gain popularity in the collector community. Fun to drive and practical these continue to be in high demand.

THE MOTOR CAR OFFERED

This nice example is powered by the Continental built 6-226 "Super Hurricane" in line six. Equipped with a manual transmission with over drive it gives good performance in modern traffic. Fully restored about ten years ago by a marque specialist it has held up well and benefits from a fresh set of military tires that enhance its all-terrain prowess.

Set up to be a good reliable driver it has a few upgrades for practicality like an electric wiper motor in favor of the lazy vacuum unit. The drive train is stock and runs and drives well.

Recent mechanical work has been performed to keep it in top driving condition. Since restoration it has been kept in heated garage storage. This Willys is being offered from a very good home where it has seen regular though light use over the last five years. It is reported to be ready to use and enjoy.
