For most of us the classic car world is about standing out with some attitude, and it doesn’t get more custom or unique than this. After all a 1950 Willys Jeep Pickup is already going to draw a crowd, but when it has been fully custom built with a new V8, overdrive transmission, upgraded suspension, custom interior, A/C, and much more, then you will always be the coolest custom everywhere you go.

The handsome, upright body says Jeep as loudly as any CJ, and it’s a familiar face the world over. But this icon is also instantly recognizable as a fully built classic. After all, a rare unibody pickup with an extended cab is a cool sight. Plus, it’s the purple and beige gives this nearly 70-year-old steel a healthy dose of modern luster and shine. The gloss does a great job of highlighting all the ribbed details that came in the panel stamping (they were originally for strength, but now just increase the cool factor.) The old and new world styles blend on the brightwork where the grille, trim, and bumpers combine nicely with the 15-inch Boyds alloy wheels and bright exhaust tips. Plus, the rear bed has both form and function with the color-matched tonneau, marine-grade carpet underneath, and bright LED taillights. In total, you can tell someone spent extra time and effort creating this cool Willys.

This custom attitude is heightened even further on the inside with a plush beige interior that nicely coordinates with the exterior color. It starts with comfortable high-back bucket seats, and the extra cab space really gives you more room to spread your legs and get comfortable. And speaking of comfort, this has a ton of custom conveniences, including a cup holder center console, power windows, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to both charge and connect your most modern devices. Plus, there’s ice-cold air conditioning. More than just comfortable, this is setup to be a terrific driver with a leather-wrapped steering wheel on a tilt column, and beyond that, there’s a cool blue glow of the full set of digital gauges.

The engine bay might win you awards all on its own. Not only is the smooth firewall painted an exterior-matching purple, but so is the engine block, too. There’s a fresh shine on all the polished components, and that’s there for a very good reason – there’s only about 80 hours on this motor. It’s a 350 cubic-inch V8 with plenty of added power from an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the glasspack dual exhaust. More than just powerful, this has all the right great driving features, like a Mustang II-style independent front suspension, front disc brakes, and four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.

This is a full custom build with rarity, power, and every feature you could want. You’ll make people smile just by showing up, and this will make you smile every time you turn the key. So it’s easy to get everything you want, just call today!

    Looks like plastic outdoor carpet. Only reason it’s a unibody pickup is because it’s a 2wd wagon. Decent looking job though.
