Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1957 Willys Jeep Station Wagon is a distinct kind of classic. It keeps the classic 4x4 attitude that makes it the granddaddy of SUVs. But there's also a crate V8, an upgraded interior, and cold air conditioning. It makes for an impressive way to get everywhere.
This makes a quality first impression with the way the panels fit and the trim is so complete. So it's easy to recognize how the handsome, upright wagon has a face/grille that says Jeep as loudly as any modern CJ. But it also has its own vintage style. This tall body showcases a red and white two-tone with a bright look that's as all-American as a Coca-Cola bottle or Radio Flyer wagon. The old and new world styles combine nicely on the brightwork where the grille, bumper, and cursive Willys scripts combine nicely with the outlaw-style alloy wheels and bright side exhaust tips.
This custom attitude is heightened even further on the inside. It starts with the seating that has been upgraded to a more modern setup that also includes two high-back buckets up front. It's on a tan velour, and the door panels and accepting coordinate. It makes for quite an inviting atmosphere. You even have been upgraded to cold-blowing air conditioning to keep everyone happy. But this classic Willys never loses its vintage charm. The rear cargo area still has the classic wood slats, including on the fold-down tailgate. And the driver gets a full classic experience with the dual-spoke Willys wheel, central speedometer, and three-stick transfer case.
Under the hood is a terrific upgrade. The 350 cubic-inch Chevy V8 is over 50 percent more displacement than the best you were getting from the best Willys was offering. Plus, this younger crate motor benefits from the decades of evolution. It's even topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. The three-speed manual gives you great control on the street or trail. The standard 4x4 system is the backbone of Jeep's reputation, and it's part of why Willys was the choice for government duty. And modern tires are good for all-around traction.
A Willys Wagon is a rare sight, and this one is the ideal mix of vintage and upgrades. This is versatility, rarity, and fun in one cool classic SUV. Call today!!!
