Willys Scores a Double Hit!
The all steel bodied Willys Station Wagon was a big hit when introduced after the war to a country starved for new cars.. I’ve always loved this car. My dad had two of the 2wd wagons, a ‘52 then a ‘57. The Aero Willys was a great little car but never sold all that well as it wasn’t price competitive. The Hampshire Green wagon pictured with the Brooklin Aero sedan is a standard Brooklin. The gray one with Aero was done by John Roberts. The maroon/wood tone model is by U.S Model Mint to replicate a ‘46-49 actual Willys Wagon. Bottom pictures are of my dad’s ‘53 with me not yet old enough to drive.
But I could sure pretend
Great pictures and nostalgia David. Love the Willys models and proud to have them in my collection.
Well chosen, David. I'm with Bob and really like the Willys alternative production. They were, for many years, unique. Here's a mid-50's NEO 2-tone.
