-lots of rust
-previous owner patched the frame in many places
-lots of jimmy rigged stuff

Nordstrom’s 1960 Wagon

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Trucks

I didn’t learn a whole lot about this truck, but apparently in 2015 this truck cruised the west coast as some type of grassroots(?) marketing venture for Nordstrom. Multiple photos of it are shown on a marketing site called “Out Cold”. I think “Out Cold” leases/rents the truck for events?

1962 Truck Milwaukie, OR $14,000

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

TJ shared this truck with a 1982 2.3 liter Peugot engine in it and featured on Barn Finds a couple days ago. It lacks four wheel drive due to non-matching RP ratios in the front and back.

1948 Truck Paulden, AZ **SOLD**

Appears in good shape.

1948-truck-paulden-az1 1948-truck-paulden-az2 1948-truck-paulden-az3 1948-truck-paulden-az4

“I’m selling my 1948 Willys pickup. It has not been restored in the pure sense (frame-off restoration). I just made everything work. For example, it has an electronic distributor, quick release hubs on the front axle, electric windshield wipers, converted from 6 volt to 12 volt, etc. It has the original Flat-head 4 cyl engine with single barrel carburetor, 3-speed manual transmission, hi/low transfer case, new radiator. Seats have been recovered in vinyl, spray-in bed liner. The tires are the original 6.00 x 16 bias ply.

I’ve been using it to go to the dump, go get coffee, go to the hardware store at my home near Prescott, etc. It is a conversation piece. Every time I go out somebody wants to talk about it. I have had no problems since I fixed it up. It always starts and runs. It gets me where I’m going and back. Somebody said to me that it was OLD, I said no it’s not! Then I reflected that it is 70 years old and since I’m 66 I didn’t consider it old, but I guess it is and I am! If interested, give me a call or text.”

1955 “Tender” Scottsdale Auction Mid-January

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

UPDATE: Turns out we discussed this back in early 2016. http://www.ewillys.com/2016/03/13/1954-wagon-tender-garner-nc-ebay/


Very cool, but not an original 1954 truck (it is listed at Barrett Jackson as a 1954, though the text suggests it was a 1955 model).


Scott Gilbert alerted me to this upcoming truck to be auctioned at Barrett Jackson.

Over the years, following a discussion with an Israeli jeep fan named Or, I’ve applied the designation of “Tender” to this style of truck. At the time, he’d sent me a copy of brochure and translated the model as a “Tender”.

Since then, I’ve been searching for an original US version of the Tender, but have not found one. So, while not beyond the realm of possibility, I highly doubt this is an original 1954 Tender for the following reasons.

1954-tender-truck-jackson-barrett-auction7The seller of this truck is describing it as a 1954 Truck and the serial number is claimed to be 55168 10001. However, as of 1954, the serial number system used was the 654 XX2 prefix system (the “X”s standing for various letters) to describe 4WD Willys trucks. It wasn’t until 1955 that Willys Motors adopted the 55168 system, but that year that prefix started with 55168 5001. At some point, there was a 55168 10001 produced, but that would have been late into the1955 year.


Consistent with a 1955 build, the 1955 55168 trucks model was defined as a cab only version of the Willys truck accompanied by the Super Hurricane engine, same as the truck herein. The “bed” of the truck could have been built from a wagon, so that might be consistent, too.


However, the speedo shown wasn’t produced until late 1956ish. The Willys emblem used on the hood and on the glove box looks more like an Aero emblem than a jeep emblem. The hockey-stick styling of the external chrome didn’t appear until 1960(?). Meanwhile, the two piece windshield was discontinued in 1960. So, there are major inconsistencies.

I’m sure there are other issues that folks can add to this list.

Here’s the listing: https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1954-JEEP-WILLYS-4X4-PICKUP-225070

Here’s the Tender’s description:

“This 1954 Willys was built as a 1955 model and is Serial #0001. A piece of Willys Jeep history, this example has 2,122 original miles and is equipped with 4-wheel drive. It’s powered by a Super Hurricane 226ci 6-cylinder engine backed by a T90 3-speed manual transmission and Dana 18 transfer case. The exterior was repainted in its correct shade of tan.”
