125: Roberto Villar’s 1962 Willys Truck
I bought my 1962 Baqueano (Willys Truck) IKA two years ago. This marvelous machine is quite original with its Continental 226 6 cylinders engine, and also the nice colors are original. It was manufactured in Argentina under license of Kaiser Willys Industries.
Dear friends: let me introduce my Argentinean Willys Truck 1962 called IKA Baqueano. Since 1957 Henry J. Kaiser established a factory in Argentina under the name of IKA (Argentinean Kaiser Industries) and started the production of Willys Station Wagon called Estanciera. Between 1960 and 1962 also manufactured the Willys Truck called Baqueano IKA. This company also produced Jeeps and cars in Argentina. Finally in 1975 the company was bought by Renault. I really enjoy the weekends driving my Machine and, of course, repairing and improving my big toy!
