1948 Truck Fish Creek, WI $8900

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

Al’s got this survivor for sale. Contact Al Sandvig at Email: Lhead663@aol.com or (480) 221-3212

Sometimes you just have to admit to yourself,” You don’t have the time or desire anymore to finish a project”. Such is the case with this 1948 Willys Jeep 2WD truck. This truck is the proverbial “barn find survivor” awakened from decades of deep sleep in 2010 when it was purchased. Although the Jeep brand has been synonymous with four wheel drive since its beginning, it has produced two wheel drive Station Wagons and Pickup Trucks to a limited extent. What I have for sale is a very early “survivor” example of a rare 1948 Willys Overland Jeep Truck, two wheel drive, with a three speed column shift. However somewhat looking the worst for wear; faded paint, surface rust, a few dents and broken glass, (I think that’s called patina), this truck is all original with all of its factory equipment. The truck has a clear Wisconsin title. Up until I started the restoration process the last people to turn a wrench on this truck were the workers who assembled it at the Willys Overland Plant in Toledo. My plan was to restore this unique Jeep 2WD Truck back to original due to its completeness and rarity. However, too many other current projects waiting to be finished and future projects to be started reluctantly require me to sell. You will not find a better candidate for a Jeep restoration project.
To date the bulk of the restoration I have done has been to the engine and drive train, approximately $5,000, which includes the following:
• Original Engine rebuild – Terry’s Engine Rebuilding, Green Bay, WI
• Fly Wheel Resurfaced – Terry’s Engine Rebuilding
• Original Fuel Pump rebuild – Arthur Gould, Kings Park, NY
• Original Radiator Cleaned – Melville Auto Repair, Sturgeon Bay, WI
• Original Generator & Starter Rebuild – Fondy Auto Electric, Appleton, WI
• Transmission cleaned, inspected and painted – Owner
• Distributor cleaned, painted, new points, condenser, rotor and cap – Owner
• WO Carter carburetor rebuild – Owner
• Column Shifter Linkage cleaned, painted, new insulators – Owner
• Original Master Cylinder rebuild – Owner
• Oil Filter cleaned, painted, bracket powder coated – Owner, Arizona Powder Coat
• Air Horn & Cross Over Tube powder coated – Arizona Powder Coat
• New Rubber Engine & Transmission Mounts and Ground Strap – Walcks Four Wheel Drive
• New Clutch Cross Shaft, Linkage and Weather Seals – Walcks Four Wheel Drive
• New Clutch, Pressure Plate, Throw-Out Bearing & Pilot Bearing – Walcks 4WD Drive
• New Spark Plug Wires, Plugs and Coil – Owner
• New Hoses, Clamps and Fan Belt – Walcks Four Wheel Drive

1956? Jeepney San Diego, CA $4000

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/19/2017) It doesn’t run. The oil filter mount isn’t a triangle nor is it a circle. It’s an oval. What’s that from? It also has an interesting dash, too.

“This is for the Willys collector who thought they had everything. It’s an awesome project and you’ll be the hit of the show. Very complete and unusual. Does not run. Do not contact with offers to help sell. No trades. $4,000.00.”

1948 Truck Upatoi, GA No Price

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

UPDATE: Was $8500. Now no price.

(01/17/2017) Need some work. I’m not sure the body is sitting level on it.

“Selling a 1948 Willys truck street rod. I have no idea what the real mileage is on it.
She sits on an early 80s chevy s10 frame (2wd) has a ford 5.0 engine (although my mechanic thinks its a 289)
Edeobrock intake and rebuilt 1405 carb.
Automatic transmission with hurst shifter.
No power brakes
Power steering
Air conditioning
Power windows (passenger isnt working)
Custom fabrication on the bed. smoothed firewall, custom interior, modern wiring harness.
This was a street rod known around the area years ago.
I bought it from a friend not running, but it was driven and registered in 2013. I have it running now, but the engine seems to be missing a beat, still working on it when I have time.
What I’ve done so far:
Rebuilt carb at A-carburetor
New coil
New distributor
New ignition control module
New plugs and wires
Removed and cleaned fuel tank, installed new sending unit.
Had fan rewired
She runs now, but has a missfire I am still working on when time permits. If I were keeping her i would just pull the old driveline and put something newer in.
The parts n pieces in the photo of the interior are chrome parts, engine compartment metal from another Willys, and the hood/grill chrome, removed to protect it while working on her.
There is some rust at the doors, surface rust in the bed and passenger fender.
Otherwise she is in very good shape for her age, nothing I have worked on has been seized or deteriorated. ”

” This is an Arizona titled (clean and clear) 1949 Willys Pickup built on a stretched 1997 Jeep Wrangler frame with a three-link front, 4-link rear, one-ton axles, manual transmission, 505 cubic inch Dodge/Chrysler RB Big Block engine. There are many many details that went into this build and I will try to list them here, but may miss some or forget some. Any really interested parties need to come see this truck first hand and ask questions. I reserve the right to cancel the auction any time in case of local sale, or if I decide to keep the truck. The truck drives great on-road and is extremely capable off-road. It has plenty of power, and turns heads everywhere it goes. Everyone loves it from Rednecks, to Hippies, and everyone in between.

Built as a Jp Magazine project Vehicle there are 8 or 9 3-4 page articles on the build. To see them Google: “Jp Magazine Wicked Willys”
You can also Google “Wicked Willys Ultimate Adventure” for more info on the truck and the UA trip

The truck, since I finished it in june of last year, has been on Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road Ultimate Adventure for 2016 (that included about 2000 miles of on road and trail driving) Over the Rubicon, Isham trail near Trona, CA, and part of Fordyce. Its also been on a few trails in AZ and all over Moab during Easter Jeep Safari 2017. It drives over almost anything the driver aims it at and is very stable off-road. I’d love to keep it, but I like to build 4x4s and can’t keep them all.
