Surburbans, Travelall and the like.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by kuztomklaus, Sep 8, 2011.

  1. It dawned on me that the only truck size, dare I call them Station wagons, I ever remember seeing are Chevrolet and GMC Surburban

    and International Travelall

    Are there any other car manufacturers that went in on that line on auto design?

    Just wondering!

    Love the T'alls but mine is O/T (1972).

    A '57 - '59 Travelall could become a really cool custom.

    one of my favorites. Kripfinks Ford: kripple kart

    but I guess panels don't count because of the lack of windows??

    Yea, I think he's talking about truck-based station wagons, not panels.

    Great tow vehicles. I own a '72 Travelall 1110. Anyone ever see John Wayne's T-all???

    I think I've seen a Dodge "suburban" DeSoto had its own Suburban model, not a heck of alot smaller than a fullsize truck

    Dodge made the Town Wagon from 54-66, they did not sell very many. The 61-up models used the previous body design, not the new sweptline design.

    I've not seen anything like these, except GM and the Travelall. That Dodge is cool, didn't know they did that.
    I guess Ford never did a Suburban-like wagon?

    Yep. Dodge Town Wagons fall into that category. Too bad they were not popular and sold poorly (like many Dodge Trucks of that period). I have one but not this one.

    The Willys Jeep wagons are pretty neat. They'd make a great rod, maybe not a natural custom.
    Studebaker had a company that converted pickups, I think. Cantrell maybe?


    EDIT: yup, Cantrell. Some of their beautiful conversions here:

    I forgot about the WC Power Wagons.

    Shame since I know someone who has one :(
     
  14. So then there were 4! 5 if you count the Jeep.
    Any more?

    Why would you not count jeep? They had truck based wagons from the 40s through OT times.

    I would think the ole 2 door Jeep Cherokee would fall more in line with the discussion here. Not sure if the Full Sized Jeep would be concidered a full size truck even though that is what they called it or was it the first oversized SUV?

    I have one for Desert runs and love the old thing. But I never think of it as truck for some reason?

  19. I guess you're all very right about the Jeep, but I guess I more thing of them as an off road vehicle!?! I know that the old models also came as a 2WD, but I think even those were more common as the 4WD versions, where the Chevys IH's and Dodge's were fewer and far between the 4WD's or am I completely misstaken?

    When I was stationed in Germany back in the sixties we had a Dodge Carryall that I drove to and from the air port in Frankfurt.

    Yes by percentage more Jeeps were 4WD than the others, But Dodge did have a Power Wagon version of the Town Wagon, and attached are pics of my NAPCO GMC and 2WD Jeep (unfortunately both need work):

    I just brought home my old Willys wagon earlier today. I sold it to Rustynewyorker last summer, and bought it back to use as a plow vehicle. Its a 1955 with the supersonic flathead six.
