Have You Ever Seen A 4 Door Willys Jeep Wagon?

I have seen a few photos floating around the internet of 4 door Willys Jeep wagons. In all the cases I had seen, they were also modified for railway use. Dave from Willys Country has done tons of research on 4 door Willys wagons as well as railway Willys. It turns out that some of the 4 door units were made for street use and Dave has supplied us with some photos.

Yes. I have. There’s one sitting in the back of a yard in Pillager, MN just outside of town.

Sorry sir. I was driving truck for a farmer chopping corn one fall about 2 years ago. It was sitting in back of a garage in the weeds. I walked up to it and drooled for a while. Had to get back to work after that. If you have any loyal fans in the Minnesota area that would be interested in driving to look at it, I can direct you to it. Here are the coordinates for Google Earth. That’s about the best i can give you on it. “Willys Jeep wagon” lat=46.365843181, lon=-94.5478786319 You may be able to do some digging and get an address from there. If I happen to make it over that direction some time in the future, I can stop in and see if it’s still there and ask if I can get some pics of it.
