Willys (and later Kaiser Jeep) produced over 300,000 Willys Wagons in the U.S. from 1946 to 1964. Rather than rely on more expensive traditional techniques, Industrial Designer Brooks Stevens developed the bodies so they could be built by sheet metal fabricators who normally made parts for household appliances and could draw sheet metal no more than 6 inches. In 1947 Willys introduced a Panel Wagon version with a pair of barn doors replacing the station wagon’s tailgate, and no side windows behind the front doors. For 1950, the flat 10 slot grille was replaced by a pointed v-shape design with five horizontal bars across the vertical ones.
This panel wagon Willys appears to be a driver-quality example that is all original save for the exterior repaint in the original color. We’re not sure whether the green interior color is left over from an earlier repaint or whether that’s how these panel vans came from the Willys factory. If you know, please comment below, otherwise you’ll need to clarify that nuance with the seller. Good luck with the purchase!
