This truck just doesn’t take a bad picture.
“Up for auction, fresh out of the hills of Crossville, Tennessee, another Willys. I have been in the paint and body work field for over 25 years in Florida, I have restored several Willys Jeeps (CJ2A, MB’s, etc) in Tennessee and sold them here on eBay, but I decided this time around to do a 1952 Willys Truck.
This truck would make a perfect store front display or a movie prop. Runs great!
This is all original with the exception of a custom solid oak (seasoned oak) bed! The bed is stained “Golden Oak” and polyurethane cleared. After doing research on these trucks I realized how cool they look with the slat sides, and the fact that this arrived without the original steel bed, my decision was made. Special thanks to my dad who is an amazing woodworker; this truck is now truly a one of a kind! Custom wood burned WILLYS logo on center back oak slat. Interior door panels are also oak wood and stained. You might find other 1952 Willys trucks on the internet, but you will never find another one like this.
Frame was completely sandblasted and painted with automotive gloss black. All original metal, floor was previously replaced in the cab. All dents and rust completely removed, sandblasted, welded, body worked and custom painted. Paint is a two tone tan and brown. Colors used are “Cream in my Coffee” (tan) and “Chocolate Turtle” (brown). This color combination has had more compliments than you can imagine, especially with the golden oak stained bed.
Engine: 6 volt original Hurricane 4 cylinder F-Head. 134 cubic inch. Engine was rebuilt by NAPA in 2002, runs perfectly.
Drive train: T-90 3 speed manual transmission. T-18 transfer case, hi-lo 2 speed. Original self locking hubs. 4 wheel drive works perfectly. Original Timkin clam shell rear-end, last year they made them! 5:38 gears front and rear. (5) 16″ original wheels.
Electrical: Original 6 volt system, but has been rewired for 12 volt system. All you need to convert it to 12 volt is a 12v alternator, relay and coil, 12v battery, and change the lights. Already has a 12v electrical gauge installed and new 12v turn signal assembly on the column. The original vacuum wipers still work. Horn works too!
Items that are brand new consist of:
(4) new shocks (custom painted to match body), new brake cylinders, new brake lines (brakes work as good as new!), new wheel studs (now all RIGHT HAND threads), new chrome lug nuts, (5) brand new Maxxis Mudder Buckshot tires, new battery cables, new rebuilt starter, new rebuilt fuel pump, new exhaust (from manifold back including new muffler), new front axle seals (did I mention the 4×4 works perfectly), new 6volt head lights and chrome rings, new parking lights with chrome rings, new floor mats, new custom covered arm rests, new oil pressure gauge. New brake and clutch interior rubber pedal covers.
I have a clear Tennessee title and a Willys Logo key chain in my hands. She also has a fresh coat of wax.
Serial number: 452EC113384
Mileage: 33, 602
Items that I am including with the truck:
A box of original parts including, lights, interior heater vents and interior heater hose. Original head light brackets, Brand new oil cooler and filter, original door skins, original tail gate “skin”, not the complete tail gate (someone cut the entire center skin out of the original tail gate) has logo. Another front cowling (goes behind the front bumper), and a new rear window interior frame. Also have another spare tire steel side mount bracket.
Truck has all original glass with the exception of the rear window (plexiglass).
Interior could be finished with carpet and a head liner, and some dice hanging from the rear view mirror.”
