Vintage 1958 Willys Jeep wagon 4x4 hits the trails in the rugged Arizona outback | Why I Drive #27
"I wonder what's on Craigslist today" has become one of the most dangerous thoughts of the 21st century, especially for car enthusiasts. And it's that exact thought that led Tom Wilmer to this 1958 Willys Jeep wagon. As a kid, Wilmer remembers bouncing around on the trails in several old Jeeps owned by his grandfather and those memories still come to mind as he rumbles down the rough two-track roads in the Arizona wilderness. Asked about the most rewarding part of owning a vintage 4x4 like this, Wilmer smiles and says, simply, “Because it’s just cool.” Hagerty is your definitive source for all things classic: compelling stories about cool cars and the people who love them; the latest on collector car values and market trends; and all the eye candy, roaring engines and nostalgia you can handle.
