Senior-Citizen Willys Doing Just Fine In The Big City

Illustration for article titled Senior-Citizen Willys Doing Just Fine In The Big City

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.

I love the pink ticket on the windshield - the perfect touch.

Looks like an early '54. Wide rear window and single mid-bar across the grill started then, but the tailgate still has the "WO" logo for Willys Overland, that is usually last seen on '53 models.
