The Willys Jeep Station Wagon

One of the early American station wagons was the Willys Jeep Station Wagon, which became a sales hit in suburban postwar America. In the mid-1940s, Willys didn’t have much cash and didn’t have a way of making its own bodies. So Willys would design bodies simple enough to be fabricated by guys who built home appliances like ovens and refrigerators, and place the order. As a result, the Willys all-steel bodies were cheap to produce and customers, used to the then-popular real wood paneling on stations wagons, liked that the Willys body didn’t take much maintenance. It was a jean-and-t-shirt wagon for the working man.
