1949-1950 Kaiser Special TravelerThe 1949-1950 Kaiser Special Traveler is a basic version of the DeLuxe Vagabond, more affordable for collectors, and possibly just the thing for your flea marketing. It sold in reasonable numbers when new, and offered station wagon-style cargo carrying flexibility. Though it looked just like a conventional Kaiser sedan, it had rear double-hatch doors and a flip-down back seat that opened up to give an impressive nine-foot load platform.
