Looks like a nice truck.
“What I have is a 47 Willy’s Jeep truck, built in Toledo at Willy’s Overland.. It’s a 2wd truck. 1947 was the first year for the truck and the 2wd ended in 50, and they went with all 4wd. units. The drivetrain is all mid 60’s Chevy, sbc v-8, Powerglide(2sp) trans, 10 bolt posi rear end. The frame is original, straight axle, with new king-pins, w/cyl., frt shocks, rear air-shocks, electric fuel pump, electric cooling fan, tires and battery. This truck was originally built in the 70’s and has many “old school” innovations, crank-open sun roof, 8-track AM/FM radio, power antenna, air-shocks, all Stewart Warner gauges, new gray leather bench seat, rear Sleelie wheels w/baby moons, and center dump exhaust manifolds.
This was a frame-off resto, painted frame with new fuel and brake lines. The body is covered in a nice patina nostalgic Lacquer paint, not a spot of rust.! The front end, hood, grille, fenders are all welded together and filled to form a sweet “tilt frt end”. The rear bed is a thick white oak, and the bed rails are rough sawn red oak. The tail-lights are 73 Vega. This is a “one of a kind” unique truck, 1st year build, 2wd., fun smooth driver, get’s a lot of attention at shows. Truck needs very little to be totally done. A must see if sounds interesting ! Asking $9,000 obo. Check the pics, more if requested. Just putting this out there, have another interest in mind. Thanks, John.”
