RealRides of WNY - Willys Station Wagon, c1951

It’s time for another edition of RealRides Seen Elsewhere by WNYers. Today’s entry is a nifty old c1951 Willys Station Wagon, seen by WNYer David Lundy on a recent trip to Colorado. I see the owner likes to be prepared, with an extra gas can mounted behind the front tire. I’m surprised though, they decided to pass on a pair of windshield wipers! The Willys wagon (pronounced “Willis”) came about after World War II when Willys-Overland realized that to stay profitable they needed more than just a civilian version of the Army Jeep. The wagon was joined by pickup, panel delivery, and convertible versions. The wagon stayed in production until 1962.
