I am selling this car because I bought a truck and don't have space to keep both.
The drivetrain and other mechanical and electrical components of this car are in common with Willys Jeepsters and Jeep station wagons of the era, but the car body is very unique!Very original. Not a show car but it is a fun driver, very rare, and turns a lot of heads and gets a lot of thumbs ups. This Willys Aero Falcon has been driven on a 1,000+ mile trip in the last year. The car is in good shape, having mostly been stored indoors for decades. There is some surface rust, but no holes through, even when looking under the car on a lift.
