Jason’s Dually Truck Project

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, Willys Trucks

Jason Potts, out of Burnettsville, Indiana, shared a couple photos of his Willys Dually project, so I asked him where he found his adapters and how he got into jeeps.


Of the truck adapters he wrote, “The adapters came from Hank himself. With the original bed rusting out on me, I bought the flatbed knowing someday the original would go bad. I had a local welder cut the length of the bed down 22 inches. The black locust was cut out of my family’s woods and milled at a relatives mill. I live in an apartment and the truck is currently stored in an enclosed metal barn and will see a garage again in the spring to continue work. The motor is a 232 out of a 70’s CJ and is being rebuilt.”


Then he shared his jeep history. “Originally my dad bought a 63 Cj5 at an implement auction and we used it to get around on county roads for fishing, hunting, and for other adventures. I was in my early teens at the time. In the early spring of 2004 (Junior in high school) a culvert washed out down the road from our house forcing myself and my dad to find alternate ways to work and school. His route took him past a place that had the 54 Willys and knowing I wanted a truck he told me about it. I bought the truck for $1500 and had to buy an electrical kit for it as its wires were all the same color and no lights worked. After about 2 months it became road legal and I started driving it to school.

Senior year of high school I was still driving it. Ever since owning it, the truck always smoked and was burning through oil at such a fast rate I eventually had to put the hottest burning spark plugs and plug extensions on just to keep up, in the end I resorted to using used tractor oil. The truck got 27 miles to the quart of oil. For a long distance football game I burned through 9 quarts of oil and $27 in gas.

Through the years since I have owned/or still own a 92 Jeep Cherokee, 66 Cj5, 75 Cj5, and a 95 Wrangler. Not to be outdone my older and little brothers also bought Jeeps. Older brother bought an 88 Wrangler and little brother has bought 2 Cherokee Country’s (both were previously rolled and used as trail rigs), a 47 Cj2A and a 65 CJ5.”

1953 Truck Dually Weld, ME $1000

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

Thank Craig for this find. If this has the hard-to-find-dually adapters, it’s a  good price.

“1953 Willys pickup truck. Great restoration project or Hot Rod. Frame mostly good, one cross member needs to be replaced (I’ve found one on Ebay for less than $100). Cab floors need to be replaced. Cowl and cab corners in good condition. Engine was replaced some time ago with a Buick Dauntless 6. Engine does fire. Fuel lines no good, so only put fuel in carb to get it to fire. Bed in ok condition, but needs a lot of work. I bought this for parts for another one I’ve been rebuilding, but didn’t need anything off from it. It has a dual rear wheel kit. No title, bill of sale only.
Scammers need not reply. CASH only from your hand to mine. NO SHIPPING or third party deals”

1948 Truck Upatoi, GA $8500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

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. ”
