Okay, I usually give it up on about ten if no one is even close. It's a 1955 Powell Sportwagon. A couple of brothers went into the truck and wagon business after Korea, to fill a gap in the utility vehicle market. They used a 1941 Plymouth frame and engine, re-conditioned them, and manufactured a simple body to go on them. They built over eight hundred vehicles before they stopped production due to lack of raw materials. They had orders for hundreds of trucks when they quit.

Rumor has it that International looked at it real hard before they did their Travelall.
