The domed roof stamping on this 4x2 Station Wagon identifies it as pre-'59 vintage, while the V-shaped five-bar grille marks it as a '50-'53 model. Early in the '55 model run, the so-called Planadyne front suspension-seen here-was replaced by a beam axle on 4x2 applications. The Planadyne offered wishbone-mounted spindles connected at the bottom by a transverse leaf spring. This Wagon's popular chrome bumper guard is in surprisingly good shape compared to the rest of the body. Jeep changed the Station Wagon moniker to Utility Wagon for the '55 model year.
