UPDATE:  Well, Steve couldn’t stand the thought of someone not restoring this truck, so he bought it and has offered to provide updates to ewillys readers as he restores it.  Best of luck Steve!

A reader named Steve examined this Truck today.  It’s got a Dump O Matic Hydraulic Dump Bed. Steve felt this was more work than he was looking for, but thought it would be great ‘for the right Willys Addict’. Thanks Steve!

Steve reports, “This was the first year for the pickup with only 2,346 4WD models built. The bed has a fair amount of body rot, but could be repaired or replaced.  The cab is original and mostly complete.  It’s not dented or molested.  The engine is seized (but included to keep matching numbers) and the seat bottom and headliner are missing.  A replacement engine is included that came from a military generator that was religiously maintained and ran on propane.  The tires are dry rotted, but the frame looks good.”

Here’s the Craigslist AD:

“1947 Jeep pick-up. 4 wheel drive. Dump O Matic pick up bed. Truck is in fair condition for an unrestored truck of this age. This is a restoration project.There is rust but cab and floor are in good condition.Truck has 42000 miles. Last time on road was 1987. For more information call David at 401-465-9490”
