Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. How many towns have three Willys Station Wagons parked on the street?
We've seen this '51 and this '56, and now we've got today's proto-SUV. I'm saying it's a 1952 model, but it could be a 1950, 1951, or 1953 as well; in fact, it could be years older or younger if it's had a junkyard grille swap. Anyway, it's a beautiful old survivor, at least a half-century in age, and that's what's important!
