1933 Willys Station Wagon

1933 Willys

In the world of woody wagons, Willys are as rare as the proverbial hens teeth! But when you slice that down, a 1933 Willys station wagon is even a rarer bird! I was sent this photo and it’s the only image I have ever seen of such a bird. It appears to be a post-factory commissionsed unit that turned out as cute as can be. Possibly built to order by Wildanger or US Body and Forging.  It featured three rows of seating for six, but no luggage space so from a practcial point of view you can see how impractical this was. It’s interesting to note how the roofline rolls steeply down at the front to meet the windshield frame and this seems to foreshorten the door front frames into a near child like toy proprtions. This unit was apparently used by the Gardner Herrick Survey Service. None of my research papers turned up an other information on this smart little wagon!
