a few of these were around when I was a kid … not sure how many were ever made … Henry J’s are one of my all time favorites.

you win !! vagabond is correct
Vagabond 4 cylinder model

cut and paste from the photos website …

The 1952 Henry J Vagabond, referred to as “Early issue” in much of the factory literature, was simply those approximately 7000 1951 models that had not been sold at the end of the 1951 model year. In order to sell these cars, KF marketing came up with this idea – they changed the plastic trim on the hood ornament from clear plastic to black plastic, added Vagabond scripting (left over from the 1949 and 1950 Kaiser Vagabonds) on the front fender and then added a Continental spare tire on the back. I have since found that not all of them have this feature. I currently own one that does not. Richard Langworth’s book “The Last Onslaught On Detroit” states “The promoters took off on it, though, calling it ‘America’s finest sports car’ – apparently the continental spare with which most were equipped accomplished the necessary transformation.”

Aside from these changes, the 1952 Henry J Vagabond was the same car as a 1951 Henry J and just as the 1951 cars, it was available in 4 and 6 cylinder models. Although both models were simply badged “Vagabond”, the six cylinder version is often referred to as “Vagabond Deluxe.”

I only road in a Henry J a few times and in it was in the early 70’s … a kid in my high school found one in a barn, stock, ok to rough shape not running. He got the motor running. Cool old car. Got about 27 miles per gallon I think.
