This runs and drives.
“This is an extremely rare, 1961 Jeep Willy FJ-3. It served as a postal truck in Nashville area and has found its way to Florida. We originally have plans to turn him into an Ice Cream truck, and stumbled upon him while looking for an old Divco, but decided to wait. Our procrastination is your gain. We named him Willy and he would make a terrific promotional vehicle, mini-gourmet food truck, Hot Rod or just a very unique addition to your collection.
The beauty of Willy is how much attention he gets when driving him. I have been around many cool vehicles and Willy gets more attention than anything I have seen. They were only in production from 1961-1965, so he is VERY rare and due to his small size he has the puppy factor. As you can see in the pictures he is the same size as my Jeep Wrangler. This is why he would make the perfect promotional vehicle if you chose not to keep him an brag about him at car shows.
The Jeep FJ-3 Fleetvan was manufactured by Willys Motor and Kaiser-Jeep. This little truck was used to deliver mail (yes you drive on the right side) and later was upgraded to Hot Rod…yes a Hot Rod. Willy has had its original F-134 Hurricane engine with a much easier to maintain Chevy 350, with a rebuilt automatic transmission. Good tires and hard to find Cragar Rims.
Because of its age and uniqueness, it’s the perfect vintage vehicle, The odometer is not working, but Willy has had almost everything mechanical replaced with easy to service parts and it has not been driven except locally. New leaf springs, new tires, new gas gauge, new wiring, Cragar Rims and all the glass is in place . All lights work and he is ready to hit the road.
Dimensions: 135 inches long, 64.7 inches wide and 90.1 inches high.
Potential buyers are welcome to come look at Willy in Tampa, Florida. If you are from a long distance away, you are of course welcome to have someone in this area look at it, or have a mechanic of your choice come by and do so. Just give me a call or email, or if you have any questions, feel free to ask. This vehicle is sold as is and is in vintage but running condition. Buyer is responsible for picking it up in Hillsborough County, FL or can have a car transporter come and pick him up. I am posting a video and pictures to give you an idea of how cool Willy looks and how well he runs.
