1957 Truck Janesville, Wi $18,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

Fred spotted this truck.

“1957 Willys Jeep Fully Restored. Motivated to sell. Willing to negotiate however serious inquiries only. Will discuss further details upon request. Call, Text or Email day or night.

Side note: This jeep is a certified chick magnet and a real head turner. It drinks American fuel and in return has an exhaust smell that screams ‘MERICA. The price may be high but it’s certainly worth every dollar.”

“1948 Willys 1-Ton Truck.  This is a real nice Willys Truck.  It starts and runs fine.  Engine sounds good.  It is real eye candy to people that know old Willys and trucks. I purchased 15 months ago and have only replaced some fuel and radiator hose.  Prior work done by previous owner.  No service records available.  I understand the engine is not original but is the military L-head (?).  See picture.

Don’t know the quality of the body work repairs over time, but it looks nice. Bed steel is solid with welded steel slats  (to replace rusted areas).  There is evidence of rust under cab and rocker panels that has been repaired. There is no visible rust.     Continue reading

1949 Wagon Sheridan, WY $3600

It  is powered by a Flathead V8, but needs work. MIght make an interesting project.

“Pulled this sweet little wagon out of the weeds and the darn thing runs. It has a flat head v8, it holds water and idles good. We changed the cap/rotor and plugs and wires. We put some different wheels on it because the others were roached. Pretty solid little wagon. Tail gate is a struggle to get shut. We were just shifting it using a wrench but have a shifter that will be in it.”

1951 Wagon Alliance, NE $8000

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

The truck be worth a look. It might surprise you, but I’m not a fan of the Wounded Warrior Project. Example 1, Example 2, Example 3  … that’s apart from the fact that when Ann, my combat wounded wife, learned about a local fishing trip and asked if she could go, the WWP told her she couldn’t. Why? Because they don’t support veterans before 2001. However, they are NOT clear about that fact in their advertising.

“1951 Willys Jeep Pickup
Original engine professionally rebuilt in the fall of 2014. Body and frame was worked on in 2012 as a Wounded Warrior Project.
Asking $8,000. Serious inquirers only.”

Closeup Photos of a Tender

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


On Sunday Ann and I went to visit Rich and the “Tender” jeep wagon/truck he has for sale. The truck is in pretty rough shape, but the shell of it could be re used. However, there are lots of bees. The bees limited my ability to take pics, especially of the inside.  Yet, it was the inside of the truck that demonstrated the vehicle was definitely not a factory jeep.

My theory is that someone saw one of these Tenders in Israel. Inspired, when they returned to the states they built a few of these, hence the reason several look the same. They must have had some skills, because the top looks great on the top. It’s only on the underside of the ceiling that you can see the seam near the back. Moreover, it looks like a flat fender hood channel is used along the underside of the ceiling to provide support.

tender-truck-adams-oregon6 tender-truck-adams-oregon5
On the outside of the back of the top, there’s a crack in what appears to be some bondo. The quality of the work is again good and matches the other side.


It looks like the top of the sides of the former wagon has been capped. There appears to be cracks forming along the metal (see pic above … note crack about an inch below the top of the rear of the bed).

Other pics and notes:

The tailgate was not finished. The lip on the top of the tailgate was left as it was. The area underneath the tailgate window at the back of the cab looks like it might have been blocked with wood. I did not look too closely. This “Tender” was modified with a spring over axle, but the original spring perches were left.
