After a three year build my 48 wagon is complete. We fitted a 400 cube chev motor with auto box, extended the dashboard to accommodate an aircon/heater combo ex Honda balade, built a frame to accommodate the jaguar xj 6 front and rear suspension, put the more modern instrumentation behind the driver cubby hole lid. Willys hubcaps and trim fits the Jaguar rims like a glove. We also kept the exterior looking as close to the original as possible. My son Andrew did all the work from the manufacturing of the frame to the paint job and the electrics.
I enclose some before and after pictures of the 48 and also a picture of the 50 wagon still in progress. The 50 will be absolutely original.
