Scott shared these pics of this nice looking truck with a plow and wrecker. The owner’s family was a Willys dealer and apparently has a variety of vintage jeeps.

    Classic style Jeep tow truck, very popular back in the era. This one looks to have a “shop made” wrecker boom, nicely done From it’s appearance, overload springs are not part of the package. Hub caps are 16″ aftermarket Cutlass “J” style.

    Well “NEIL”, (ha ha) as we all know, Rust Never Sleeps. Back in 1961 New Jersey, these were the hot item for local gas station owners, with the 226 Flathead Six, proudly parked out front. Familiar with your Willys vehicles, read your book SPECIAL DELUXE.

    I knew Neil had him some jeeps, I spoke with him about them once and even saw some photos of his private junk yard once too!
