The 'Jeep' Station Wagon has many other power features. Not only can it travel anywhere itself, but by means of auxiliary equipment it can be used to take portable power to isolated areas. Auxiliary power is delivered in the same manner as with the Universal 'Jeep': through the front, and center power take-offs. When regulated by a governor the correct speed, horsepower and torque can be transmitted to the auxiliary equipment.
Because of all these factors, the 'Jeep' Station Wagon has the power to handle its rated load under any set of conditions with a minimum of effort and a maximum of comfort and economy.
Economy of operation is derived from the following factors:
Either the 4-cylinder 75-HP Hurricane Engine or the 6-cylinder 115-HP Super Hurricane Engine
Straight line design
Extreme usefulness of the vehicle
Long vehicle life
The new 75-FB Hurricane engine, evolved from the tested "L" head model used in World War I1 'Jeeps', can develop its rated horsepower on low grade gasoline. Servicing costs are held to a minimum, too, because this rugged engine is built to stand up under heavy punishment day after day, year after year. The Super Hurricane, developing more horsepower, is still one of the most economical engines in its horsepower class.
The straight-line body construction of the 'Jeep' Station Wagon and the lack of excess chrome and curving metal adornment serve to hold down repair costs due to collision damage. However, when repairs are needed, the vehicle's 18-gauge steel components can be more easily and more economically repaired or replaced. Maintenance and upkeep costs are held to a minimum.
Ruggedness is built into the 'Jeep' Station Wagon. It's built for off-the-road use and it's expected to handle the rough jobs. That's why this vehicle's all steel frame and straight-line body construction are designed to withstand the stresses and strains of rough daily usage -- either under capacity load in cross-country travel, or in transmitting power to auxiliary equipment. This all-around ruggedness is one reason 'Jeep' Station Wagons are used in dam and irrigation construction work in Northern India.
Because the 'Jeep' Station Wagon is so versatile and can perform so many functions, its initial cost can be amortized over a broader range of duties. This means the greater the number of different jobs it can handle, the smaller the cost of doing any one job. Add to this the vehicle's long and useful life and you see how much more the customer gets for his invested dollar.
In the performance of any of its many jobs, the 'Jeep' Station Wagon has many safety features, such as:
Low center of gravity
Extra large brake linings
Engine compression braking power for down hill travel
The low center of gravity gives the ',Jeep' Station Wagon great tractability and minimizes the danger of tipping. The rear floor construction contributes much to the vehicle's low center of gravity. It is only 25-1/4 inches from the ground surface and, when carrying a capacity load, enhances the 'Jeep' Station Wagon's ability to hug the road.
The extra large brake lining area on each of the four wheels permits the operator to brake the vehicle's speed quickly and positively. This greatly reduces the hazard of skidding.
Also the braking power of the engine's compression holds the speed of the vehicle to the maximum speed rate of the gear in use --another very important safety feature.
One of the most important safety factors, however, is !he full, eye-range visibility afforded the operator because of the wide vision windshield and large side windows.
All of these features together make the 'Jeep' Station Wagon one of the safest vehicles on the road -- safer, in fact, than the average passenger car or truck.
The 'Jeep' Station Wagon is designed and built to do its job and stay on the job all year 'round. Its rugged construction, tested 75 and 115 horsepower engines, straight-line pressed steel design, airplane-type shock absorbers, heavy-duty springs, reinforced frame -- all are designed to insure dependable service with a minimum loss of time for repairs. However, when repairs are unavoidable, the accessibility of the engine, the power train, and the clean line construction permit speedy maintenance.
"Down time" is further lessened for the owner because the flexible interchangeability of parts permits adequate stocking of service and repair parts for the entire line at low cost.
THE 'JEEP' STATION WAGON IS A TESTED WILLYS PRODUCT. IT CAN BE DEPENDED UPON TO DO THE JOB OF TRANSPORTING MEN, MATERIALS, AND EQUIPMENT WHERE NO OTHER VEHICLE CAN -- ON OR OFF THE ROAD.
