    Got 4 right. I thought that engine was called the Hurricane!. I love those Willys station wagons. My dad had two when we were growing up in Lenox, Massachusetts, a Hampshire Green 2wd w/ caining effect in upper panels followed by a ’57 in gray. I now have several in 1:43 scale but have very fond memories of those Jeep station wagons of my childhood.
