“I love this car. It was on my dream list, but I have to downsize to less vehicles! Make me an offer… I’m motivated to sell. Just don’t be ridiculous. Father/Son projects get special consideration!

Permanent 1947 plates. Yes, that is the real VIN. All original except paint, all chrome wheels and brand-new tires. I have the original wheels. Drive as-is, restore or modernize! Always parked in garage or carport. I drive it locally all the time… (Except in rain. Wiper cable soaking in WD-40.)

MECHANICAL: 2WD. Optional Overdrive. Split sliding rear windows. Fold down tailgate. 3-speed Manual shift on the column. Willys “Go Devil” L-Head engine – 63hp. I don’t know why they called it “go-devil”, it doesn’t go very fast! Goes along great at 50mph – that’s as fast as I have gone. I just did a tune-up.

BODY: Very straight. Solid frame, floors. Some bubbling under doors, rain rail and tailgate – an easy fix. Only few small holes in one place where fender meets body. Previous “injury” to driver’s side rear wheel well.

INTERIOR: It’s plain as you may know. Original wood door panels, push-button openers (cool!) and 2nd row seats that fold forward. Upholstery removed by former owner, but foam is in great condition. Original wood rails on floor are in very good condition. “Banjo Style” steering wheel and turned-metal gauge cluster.

HISTORY: Known as the world’s first SUV. One of Willys’ most successful post-World War II models. I was told it may have been used as a rural “school bus” – as many were.”

    Price has been dropped to $4500.00 I have been watching this one as its only about 2.5 hrs away. May have to call and make an offer.

    Serial number indicates it is a late 1947 463 model build date, so it would have had the Go-Devil 63 hp engine originally, but probably would have had overdrive as well. No indication it is still present. The T-bar on the grille and the deluxe steering wheel were probably added later from the 1948 Station Sedan or a Jeepster. Not a bad price. Hope somebody snaps it up.
