UPDATE: Did not sell. Was relisted in 09/2018

“Where do I start with this find! What we are looking at is a 1955 Willy’s that was converted into this Willy’s Digger. Owned by the original family since day one and it is solid! We always go through our cars and on this one other than a deep cleaning, we changed the oil like always and brake master cylinder along with plugs fuel filter and it runs and stops really well. All of the hydro fluid is new as well for the digger since we had to take it off for transport. The mechanisms in the back work and although we did not dig any holes, it looks like it will do a damn good job at it. Please ask any questions regarding anything you see and for any additional pictures as well.”

    Good thing I don’t have to much money or I’d be tempted. That makes another one in Indiana. There was a primered one a couple of months ago. Looks like rear axle and wheels are changed to a full floater. Not surprised as these rigs are really to heavy for standard axle. Duals would been a good idea and looked good to I think.

    Ebay listing has been pulled , someone must have been lucky enough to get over there and swipe it up for the Craigs List price. I bet there wishing they didnt have it on CL as Im sure it would have done way better on Ebay. Nice Truck , looked to good to be a farmer special . Also looked like the Go For Digger Dana 70 rear.

    Hi Ted,

    I think the eBay auction ended (it was close to ending when I posted it). The Craigslist ad is still up, so this may still be available.

    No longer on Craigslist so it must have sold. Too bad, as I would have bought it if it was as good as it looks in the pictures.

    Hi Lavarr,

    These pop up for sale occasionally, maybe once every few years. Just not many of them around. I don’t know of any for sale currently.
