1949 Willys Station Wagon description
America's First SUV-NO RESERVE!!!
Correctly described as "One of the most influential automobiles ever built," the Jeep Station Wagon was produced through the early 1960s, hen succeeded by the Jeep Wagoneer and subsequent Jeep sport-utility vehicles, his was the first all-steel wagon to be manufactured and sold in America. Here for auction at NO RESERVE is this nice Willys. Brought to us by a client that has no more room. I am going to let the market tell us what its worth so let her begin, id your best! Clear title in hand. I am sure if this Willys could talk we would hear some interesting stories. Owned by the same person for may years its traveled around. Up in the corner of the headliner
"Maggie Valley N.C Antique Show July 1,2 & 3 - 1983"
How it got from there to here we have no idea.
It has an aftermarket radio with removable face plate
original antenna and mounting.
This Willys Overland has been repainted the original color of pine green. There is no rust and it appears never has been. The paint is nice and looks good - could use a wet sand and buff detail. The paint is an 8 out of 10 and has nice attention to detail. The cut lines on the individual panels was done right. The interior has been restored at some point and is very clean. There are some dents on the inside of the lower tailgate. The seats are black and there is a 1/8 " tear in the back left one that should be an easy repair I don't know if the door panels are original style or not, ut they are about the only items in the interior that need attention, hey may be original, don't know. The headliner is mohair and perfect. Might be original. There is a cracked panel of windshield right side. An extra dash panel has been added, he original is there needs restored. Bright work is either original or older redo. Some of the window seals need to be replaced. Engine fires right up and runs, probably just needs a tune up & carburetor work, o overheating. He has misplaced the air cleaner in a move. Leaks a little when left for a while, ot too bad though. I have not taken this one over 20 mph, ave not tried the overdrive. Brakes seem ok. Clutch is working, as some chatter. Selling mileage exempt. This is one that you can buy and clean it up to increase the value big time! That's not going to be the owner or us, e are too busy in the Auction Business
NO RESERVE AUCTION GOES TO HIGH BID!
I would say that this collector station wagon is quickly increasing with value momentum in the market. Here is what I would do if I were going to keep it. Inspect electrical components, epair as needed, ake extra instrument panel out, ill area & repair original gauges. Get the engine running well, nspect the clutch and throw out bearings. Detail engine compartment. Take the interior out and re-varnish the wood slats (complete with hardware) then replace some of the rubber around the windows. Tires look good with some weathering, f you were going to drive long distance might replace. Hubcaps look nice, ight rear cap has a dent. I would re-chrome the rest of the bright work. Wet sand and buff the paint lightly. I would powder coat the wheels in a contrasting color, aybe apple green. That's just what I would do, ou might want to do it different. You might just want to tune her up and go to the shows. This is a good one. If your are looking for one that is a light project that you can tinker with, ere it is. Bid your best because its going to sell. We are shipping brokers for our clients only right to your front door at a wholesale price.
