1957 Truck Project Dublin, NC eBay

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

So far, so good. Plenty of work left.

“Too many projects, not enough years to complete. I am thinning down current projects from five to just two. NOTE..THIS IS A RESTORATION PROJECT!!! June 1957 built Willys 4WD sold and titled in NC in 1958. Excellent sheet metal. L-226 inline six rebuilt.T-90 transmission rebuilt. Correct date code radiator, generator, starter, fuel pump, carb.New clutch pac, engine and trans mounts. Five correct rims. Hood is ready to wet sand and paint, doors are 50% complete to spray, front fenders as well. Rear fenders are not yet started–see photo. All drive shafts are out of truck, brakes not yet complete. This is a project I bought from a fellow who had started but was forced to sell after having had the engine and transmission rebuilt. Truck had a twin cylinder dump bed installed on it. THERE IS NO BED WITH IT NOW. Cab, fenders, doors, grill and hood are in outstanding condition. Dump bed parts are on hand if you want them with the truck. Look over photos and ask any questions of me. TRUCK IS FOR SALE and I will take a big loss. Its your gain. I just have too many projects and at my age I must let several go.”

Craig’s Pic of the Week: Trucks in TV Commercials

• CATEGORIES: Craigs Pic of the Week, Features, Willys Trucks

Craig found these two pics from a 1964 issue of Jeep News.

Guy provided additional information:
“The top picture with the caption underneath “MOUNTAINS IN COLORADO….” would have been taken on the east side of the Garden Of The Gods in Colorado Springs. The shot is looking west. Appears it could have been made from the present site of the Garden Of The Gods Visitor and Nature Center. See this Google Map link: http://goo.gl/maps/alpDj

The area to the west and north of the Garden Of The Gods is where the devastating Waldo Canyon wildfire swept into Colorado Springs last summer.

The Garden Of The Gods is a spectacular sight. Hiking is allowed, but no jeeping.

1952 Truck Eureka, Ca **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was listed at $2200.

This truck looks like a good foundation for a project. It does not run.

“I have a 1952 willies jeep i inherited from my grandpa. It is currently just sitting because I just graduated high school and don’t have the money to fix it up.

The body is in excellent condition. The interior is okay. It however, does not run.

Getting rid of this is something I am not looking forward to because it was from my grandpa and I would love to be able to keep it. I just do not want to see it sitting wasting away. This is a great project if you’re into old school vehicles.

1963 J-300 Gladiator Dually (Rare One-off) Georgetown, CA eBay

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

Looking for something else, I ran across this 1963 J-300 dually with an unusual tale.

“This is a special ordered truck, the only Jeep J300 truck ever configured this way. I purchased this truck with 43,000 miles on it from the original owner, a timber faller, who worked up until he died at 87 years old. The original owner approached his local Jeep dealership requesting a one ton dually Thriftside and was told Jeep didn’t build one. When he told them if Jeep didn’t build one for him he would buy a Ford instead the dealership obtained one for him that had the rear fenders widened to fit the dual tires and a wider rear bumper was fabricated. This truck has OEM power steering, a four speed tranny, 230 CI Tornado motor, 2 bbl carb and an alternator was added. An 8000 pound Ramsey PTO winch is included  This truck is registered in the Texas Full size Jeep Association Dually registry check it out here http://www.txfsja.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=354    I reserve the right to end auction early as this vehicle is for sale locally.”

All the mechanicals gone over, new brakes, recored rad, relined gas tank, rebuilt carb and lots of new chrome (front and rear bumper and hood spear ) All new glass from local glass shop and all new rubber for all windows and seals. We pulled the engine (painted head and block) and installed new rings and did lap job on valves. Purrs like a kitten now !!! New clutch and pressure plate with throw out bearing at same time. The king pins and front I beam are great and goes down the road straight as a pin. Brand new 16 inch tires also. Real sharp, professional paint job a couple months ago cost me almost $5000 alone. Professionally recovered original seat also. New aftermarket gauges. We had to put some patches on both floors but were only pin holes to start. Seam sealed patches also. There is very little bondo on this truck !!!!!! There was no rot !!!! Floor start, Interior is all original with the stock door panels, etc. New door handles I could go on and on with all that has been done to this truck. Serious inquires only please, as this is one sharp little truck.

1950 Truck Las Vegas, NV eBay

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

This truck looks good, though it has two different types of rims.

“This auction is for a 1950 4×4 Willys Jeep Pickup. It is in turn key running condition with a transplanted small block ford V8 mated (289) to a 3 speed manual transmission. It has been fully painted (Corvette yellow) from frame up including the interior and engine bay. It has full new interior with Ford explorer seats. all door pannell and custom roof piece done. Tires are oversize from stock and rims are aftermarket. Has original style spare on drivers side of bed. Wood bed rails custom built and installed. The tail gate has been hand painted with wood effect. All glass in good condtion. The truck has a electric fan for cooling and a new Optima blue top for exellent starting. Cooling system has had radiator fully flushed and pressure tested and new thermostat. Also has new starter and new starter solenoid. Fires right up on the first turn of the key. Doesnt smoke or anything funny. Front and rear bumpers are in pretty good shape. Over all the truck is pretty straight. If you look in the pictures you will see that the floor in the bed is not perfect and pitted but the actual panels and fenders all over are nice clean and straight. This truck has the V-Grill. Cab is solid and floors are not rusted. I have the before pictures as well so you can see that it is not just thrown together with bondo and some cheap paint to hide a nightmare. Truck is drove at least once a week so its not just a show pice either. Nevada based truck sot thats a great thing because of our dry desert. This truck definately gets the looks and is only being sold because the owner has a willys wagon and shevy pickup that are taking more of the priority. So it needs to go to make room in the garage. Owner hates to see it go but figures its the smart thing to do. Title is clean and clear with current Nevada registration. Ready to sign it over to its new home.”

Willys Truck at Felix’s Fish Camp in Spanish Fort, Alabama

• CATEGORIES: Features, Last Ride, Willys Trucks

Bob’s down in Spanish Fort, Alabama, to photograph the Godaddy.com Bowl on Sunday when Kent State battles Arkansas State.  Of all the events at that bowl, I’m thinking the coaches wives got the best gig:  lunch at Wintzell’s Oyster House (a good place to eat if Yelp is to be believed). Uh oh, now I’m hungry.  Anyway, while down there, Bob spotted this poor old truck at Felix’s Fish Camp (another good place to eat).  It appears rooted permanently to the beach.  Of course, he thought of us ….

About the truck Bob says, “I looked under the hood and the truck still had the straight 6. Frame was almost rusted in half and the top was gone on the truck. Pretty cool though!’
