UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

This has a short wheelbase. Maybe this is a truck on a CJ-5 chassis?

“We have a 1955 or 1956 Willys Flatbed pickup would make an excellent crawler.

The transmission and transfer case look like a T89 transmission and a model 80 transfer case which would be correct for this vehicle.

The engine in the photos is not the correct engine for this model regardless of the year, however, it looks like a 215 c.i. Buick V6 engine that was an optional engine in the Jeep CJ5 from about 1966 to 1969? (Jeep Corp. bought the engines from GM)The Buick engine in the CJ5
was matched to the T89 transmission and model 80 transfer case until about 1969 or so.

I also have a second transmission that goes with it included.

If the Buick engine did indeed come out of a
Jeep CJ5 then the bell housing should match the transmission you have with the truck. However if the Buick engine came out of a Buick then the bell housing and the flywheel would not be correct.

The steering column in the truck is not original nor is the power steering on the end of it.

As far as making the truck a driver, I would assess whether this truck had been driven as it is now set up (maybe someone pulled the transmission to work on the clutch or what ever and never put it back together) or whether the truck was never driven this way because the right combination of parts were never obtained to make it a driver.”

    What’s the overall condition of the truck.
    photos of interior, also of cab and bed mounts if you can, do you have the title.

    Hi Dale,

    It looks like this was deleted by the seller. I’ve updated the post. Should it reappear on Craigslist I will drop you a note.
