  • Wagonaire Woody prototype

    I'm guessing this was probably posted here before, but I did a search and didn't find it, so:

    I think they look sharp! The top photo looks especially good. Do any photos exist of the tailgate treatments? Thanks for posting! Quentin

      Not sure if anyone else see's it but these sure look like a Jeep Grand Wagoneer from the 80's.

          Not surprising, really. Even the name, Wagoneer, is recycled. Designers are sometimes monomaniacal about their creations. I REALLY want to see the rear end treatment of the woody, to see if the taillights of this/these prototypes were referenced as well in the Wagoneer design. It certainly looks it from the side, to be somewhat similar.

          Anyone have a photo of the rear end (and front end?) treatments of the woodies? Mr. Quinn perhaps?

            I converted a 1963 Daytona Wagonaire into a woody. I thought (biased opinion) that it looked good. After I sold it, I had people tell me about this woody Wagonaire that they came across.

              Gary, what did you use for moulding around the woodgrain? I would love to see pictures of that!

                Didn't Brooks Stevens design both the Wagonaire and original Wagoneer? They came out at about the same time.The taillight treatment and C pillar are very similar in style.

                  I used the stock side stainless for the top edge and existing body edges for the rest - no moulding.

                  I put the woodgrain panel on in one piece (per side) and then cut the door openings mid-way. This kept the woodgrain in alignment.

                  I doubt that I have any pictures of it (never have been one for pictures). Someone else may have pictures from when I owned it or subsequent owners.

                    I'm wondering who the individual seen through the rear door window in the second picture is.

                      I believe you're right. I've also heard Mr. Stevens did some of the early work for the new "small" Jeep that became the Cherokee (XJ), one of the best SUV's ever.

                        That's great - never seen these before! And yes, even before scrolling down to read the rest of the comments, my first thought was "Wagoneer."

                          Then there was this one with a few woodgrain touches on it which appeared at the 1966 Chicago Auto Show:



                          Perhaps Stu can tell us more about it.

                            The Stevens "Skyview" prototype also has woodgrain on it. I know the tailgate has it on it, at least on the inside, but I can't remember what it has on the outside. It really looks cool.
