  • Body: Body tag: "NOT JACKED" What's it mean?

    Dave Thibeault told me he had a '63 Standard Wagonaire that included a small stamped tag attached to the normal body tag that said "NOT JACKED". The Wagonaire had three seats, but it did have a spare - and a jack. [Sounds strange, because I thought they put self-sealing tires and no spare tire in the three-seat wagons in order to provide a place in the well for the feet of the back-row passengers.]

    So what did the tag mean?

      Maybe someone put a regular spare and jack in it afterwards.

        How could a third seat AND a spare plus jack possibly be fitted in that space? No way you could fold a seat flat with anything in the spare tire well.

          Some prevous owner probably didn't put self-sealing tires on it at some point and just threw in a spare and jack.

            Right, no where to put a spare or jack. But that doesn't explain the tag. Never heard of that one either. My guess is it left the factory with the 3rd seat and no spare/jack.
