Willys Wagon

Made In Brazil Willys Jeep Wagon

A reader recently sent us a link to Rural Willys, a website dedicated to Willys Jeep Wagons built in Brazil. There was over 182,000 Rural Willys Wagons built in Brazil from 1958 to 1977. The basic body tub is the same, but is is obvious that there is a lot of differences between the Brazilian model and its American cousin. The first thing you notice is the different front end, but as you look closer, you can see the smaller details like different door handles, front and rear bumpers, tail lights, etc. What else do you notice that is different?

4 Door Mitsubishi Built Willys Jeep Wagons?

Last week we showed you some photos of 4 door Willys Jeep wagons. This week, Willys Country brings us some photos of Mitsubishi built 4 door Willys Jeep wagons. These were manufactured from the 1950’s through to 1988. At a quick glance, they may appear to look like their American counterparts, they are very different. Probably the largest difference is that they were actually built on a CJ-3B chassis so they are a lot narrower than your normal Willys wagon. they also used a CJ-3B grille. Notice the hood height difference compared to the regular version. As for other body modifications, they used panel style rear doors and the rear side glass radius, which allows for more glass area. Most of them used a diesel engine and some used Dana 30 front ends with a Dana 44 in the rear. Lets not forget the right hand drive!

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.

Not only was the Willys Wagons used for commuting, but with simple modifications they were used as delivery vehicles, railway maintenance vehicles or ambulances, as pictured above.
