208: Charlie Valvo’s 1960 Willys Station Wagon
About 3 years ago I was in the process of purchasing a 1950’s pick up truck. The deal quickly deteriorated and needless to say I was disappointed. One evening I was searching the Internet and came across a 1960 Willys Wagon. The ad was very vague so I emailed the owner. He responded with a phone# that had the same area code as mine, I didn’t call. Three months later I was cleaning out my inbox and came across the email and phone#, I emailed him again asking if the Willys Wagon was still available. That evening he again responded with his phone#, I called him and he sent me a bunch of pictures. After looking at the pictures I knew I wanted it. It took 2 years and much help from Mike and the crew at Kaiser Willys to get it to it’s present condition. I have the doors lettered with my business name which attract much attention at car shows and cruise nights. It won its first peoples choice award last month. I am glad the original deal fell through and couldn’t be happier with my Willys.
