Joseph buys his first car, a 1951 Wagon

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, Willys Wagons

Joseph might look pretty young to own his first vehicle, but after a trip to Moab with his dad Pete, who runs the OWF, to attend the 2012 Willys Overland Rally Joseph caught a bad case of the Willys sickness. As his father knows to well, there is no cure for this dreaded disease.  With Joseph’s fate sealed, he decided to buy a wagon with his own money that he could rebuild himself (with some help from dad).

The wagon needs plenty of work, so they located a good donor frame that’s already been modified and strengthened, saving them lots of time and work.  They have collected some ’76 Wagoneer axles, XJ rear and YJ front springs to fit the already modified frame.  They also have located a variety of additional parts to help round out Joseph’s project.

You can follow Joseph’s build here:

Good luck Joseph!  I’m sure you’ll learn a lot 🙂

    Oustanding. There’s nothing like a father-and-son project, especially one involving old iron. Looking forward to following this on
