    Sheila, so my dad and I bought a 53 willey wagon from family neighbor - need help

    So my dad and I bought a 1953 willey wagon from my dads family neighbor last Saturday for $2,900. We know nothing about these. It is complete and my dad said it has no rust but we are not sure if it is 6 or 12 volt and how to start it. We live in Mission Viejo CA, would like to meet anyone in our area that knows about these. thank you

    The easiest answer to your first question about 6 vs 12-volt? Open the hood, find the battery and count the caps. If there are three caps, it is a 6-volt; if 6 caps it is 12-volt. If there is no battery - uhhhhhh.. we'll figure it out.

    See how easy that was...?
