This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Is this old Jeep 50 years old? 60?

Based on the grille, it appears to be a mid-to-late-50s model, made after Willys-Overland became Kaiser's plain ol' Willys Motor Company. The photographer, who definitely knows what he's doing when he picks up a camera, didn't tell us much about his find, but the image file names indicate that this truck was found in Brooklyn's Red Hook neighborhood.
