Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Let's take a break from Ford and Chevy trucks this Truck Monday.
I don't know my Jeeps well enough to determine whether this example is a '63 or '64 model. The '65s had "Kaiser-Jeep" badging, so this one is either a first- or second-year Wagoneer. With its Brooks Stevens design, the first-gen Wagoneer is definitely a good-looking truck, and quite rare nowadays.
The '63 International Harvester half-ton Travelall 4x4 sold for $3,011 (and was also a great-looking machine), while the 4x4 Wagoneer 4-door went for $3,332. Farm equipment or military truck heritage? Either way, you're looking at some pretty sturdy iron. And, while we're pricing 1963 vehicles to take you and many passengers to the woods, we can't forget Detroit. The '63 Dodge Power Wagon Town Wagon 4x4 would rumble off the showroom floor for $3,104. GMC could put you behind the wheel of a Suburban Carryall 4x4 for $3,489, while the Chevy version would set you back $3,305. Which would you choose?
