I thought the same thing about the price. Then I realized this could be in Canadian money. I see the dollar sign clearly but typewriters of the time may not have had a pound dollar key and they used the standard dollar key instead. The exchange rate of the day may account for the large sales figure.

I just Googled the exchange rate of the day and it was almost exactly what it is today...1.37.

Looks like that ol wagon made great memories from the desert on up to the mountains, thank you for sharing!
We went everywhere in our wagon Seven different states that I remember. I plan on taking my kids everywhere in it too. As soon as I can fix some of the damage time and use has bestowed on it.

That is so awesome...please share the progress. What part of Az are you in?
Here is the same Wagon when I brought it home after my dad passed. Still running and driving just with some fairly major issues. I'm in Apache Junction IMG_8264.JPG IMG_8268.JPG

Man, looks like you have quite the Willys Compound there, even noticed a Scout 800 peeking around the corner. I’m over in Havasu, If I get out your way, I’d dig checking out your collection!

I have a project list that will most likely out live me but I’m going to give it my best shot the build them all. If you’re ever out my way let me know
