1947 Truck Phoenix, AZ BAT Auction

“This 1947 Willys Jeep Truck is a first-year example that was acquired by the seller in 2016 and subsequently refurbished at The Jeep Farm in Waddell, Arizona. The exterior was refinished in Bedford Grey with Challenger Blue accents, and the interior was reupholstered in Pendleton blanket fabric and blue vinyl. The 2.2L Go-Devil inline-four was resealed, and sends power to all four wheels via a three-speed manual transmission and a Spicer transfer case. Work in 2020 included a carburetor service, wiring repairs, coolant flush and some paint work. Approximately 2,350 four-wheel drive Willys Jeep Trucks were made in 1947 and this example is now offered with records, a reprinted owner’s manual, and a clean Arizona title in the name of the seller’s LLC….”

Here a nice looking vintage truck. This map is supposed to show where the Bonanza Lead Mill was located. The Bonanza Lead Company operated the Old Dominion lead-zine mine near Colville; I can only guess that the Bonanza Lead Mill was also operated by Bonanza.

Bill’s got this nice looking truck for sale and he provides a detailed review of what’s been done to it.

1951-truck-va1 1951-truck-va2 1951-truck-va3 1951-truck-va4

“For sale is a restored 1951 Willys Overland pickup truck which I’ve owned for the past 18 years. The truck is a four wheel drive, 1 ton model with a 3 speed transmission and 2 speed transfer case. It’s powered by the Willys ‘Hurricane’ engine and still retains its 6 volt electrical system. Everything works on the truck as it should and it drives and stops fine. It’s been garaged for the past 22 years with the last 10 years in a climate controlled garage.

It’s an older “body off frame” restoration that was started in 1998 and was approximately 90% completed in 2005 after which it was stored for 15 years. I finally completed it this past summer. Unfortunately, some of the work that I had originally completed years ago had to be redone due to the length of time that it sat. It’s only been driven approximately 19 miles since I’ve owned it. Before contacting me, please read below for ALL the details on what work was done and when it was done. And, yes, you CAN drive it home if you want.

“1953 Willys 4WD Pickup. Good running classic. It is mostly original. We replaced the cracked engine block, added an electric fuel pump, went to a cartridge air filter, installed electric windshield wipers and upgraded to an 8 volt system and battery. There is an aftermarket overdrive and the engine was totally rebuilt about 8500 miles (10 years ago). There are new brakes, shocks and pitman. The transmission leaks and needs periodic topping off. There is a minor (nuisance) oil pan leak. The bed has been sprayed and it is a nice smooth running old Willys.”
