Former Truck Owner Looking For Truck

• CATEGORIES: wanted

UPDATE: Jeff, the former owner, left a comment. “This is a factory prototype. Someone has a picture of it sitting next to the Alcoa car that Willys built that was a Jeepster “coupe”. I am the one who ran the ad above….the truck is the real thing and if someone has it, bring it to a Willys meet. I don’t expect to find it myself but whomever has it…they should know the history.”

“I want to buy this truck. I owned it before and would like to find it and get it back if it’s still around. The truck is a 1950 Willys and it has Chevrolet corner windows in the back of the cab. I doubt that there are two like this around so irf you know of one it would be the one.”

    It’s a needle and haystack for sure! I’ve been watching for the jeep I sold in ’92. In ten years I still haven’t seen it pop up for sale.

    Looks like a Willys nose mated to a early 50’s GM pick up, look at the rounded rear 1/4 windows, very unique and well done.
