This one is called a Utility Wagon. As far as the year it would be impossible to tell because Willys in the 1950's like this one all looked alike. A friend of mine had a 1951 and a 1955 like the one in the picture and they looked just alike except for the 1951 was 4cyl. 2 wheel drive and the 1955 was 6cyl. 4 wheel drive. I suggest you look for one of the Willys Car Clubs on the web and they should know what year this picture was printed.

Willys, actualy "Willys-Overland" was acquired by Henry J Kaiser on 4/28/1953. Its name was changed to Willys Motors inc.(July 29th 1953 the Kaiser-Willys Sales Div was formed) In July of 1946 Willys introduced the all steel truck like station wagon. Sold for $$1,495, had 4 cyl engine, used the pre-war chassis of the Willys Americar.

The bodies were unchanged from 1946 to the end in 1953, and very little after that.

Having said all this, I can positively idenify this vehicle. Its a 1951, because this exact photo, with this building in the background, appears in the Standard Catalog of American Cars 1946-1975 for the 1951 model year
