1947 Willys-Overland Jeep Station Wagon

** The FIRST ALL STEEL STATION WAGON built in the US... known as the world's first SUV!
** The 1947 Willy's Station Wagon was introduced in 1946 by Willys-Overland Motors
** One of Willy's most successful post-World War II models
** Concentrates on luxury over military efficiency
** Designed to be a stylish, comfortable, luxurious, and spacious family car to accommodate larger post-war families that were moving to the suburbs
** The side panels are made of strong steel, which replaced the creaky heavy wood of previous models that had to be constantly maintained.

This Willys Wagon is currently in unrestored condition, shows some rusting, and does not run... sold on a Bill of Sale only.

EXTERIOR
-- Plenty of patina, surface rust, and some invasive rust on this vehicle
-- Panels show some dings, dents, scrapes and scratches (no major accidents)
-- Sliding windows are in the passenger compartment, along with roll up windows in front, and a rear tailgate
-- Glass and sliding windows are all there
-- Rear gate functions well and is in good condition

INTERIOR
-- Driver's seat is installed but will need total restoration
-- A metal floor with wood herring strips in oak is seen... in fair condition (no rust through)
-- Original Rubber mats are upfront in good shape
-- Red dash with nice centered instrument cluster in spun patterned aluminum panel is behind the original steering wheel

DRIVE TRAIN
-- Willys “Go Devil” L Head 134 with a Carter 1-barrel carburetor
-- Warner 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive is attached to the back
-- Currently engine does not run

UNDERCARRIAGE
-- Plenty of surface rust underneath
-- Passenger toe kick area appears to have a repair
-- No invasive rust noted anywhere underneath

** A definite project car!
** Authentic piece of automotive history being the first all steel station wagon with a woody design
** Many interesting features

Seeing one of these restored is a sight to behold!
