1949-truck-louisville-ky1 1949-truck-louisville-ky2 31949-truck-louisville-ky 1949-truck-louisville-ky4

“This is an 1949 Willys Overland pickup truck. It has the Willys Go Devil L-134 engine, T-90 3 speed transmission and Timken clamshell differential. It is 2 wheel drive. The truck is rust free except a small bubble on the passenger door corner, which there is a photo of that area and the bed was sandblasted and a few very small pin holes are visible. Very light surface rust on the frame if any.

The cab appears original paint but the seat has been recovered and some newer carpet and possibly door panels. The electrical has been changed to 12v. This is a good running truck and fun to drive but I have to many projects at this time and need to downsize. This is a very solid truck and will be an easy project for someone who is looking for an unmolested Willys truck. The truck is located in Louisville, KY. This is a running and driving truck.”

1957 Swedish Fire Truck in Germany 16,500 Euros

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

Craig shared this 1957 Swedish Fire Truck for sale ion Germany. It looks in great shape. The price is just over $19,000.

https://suchen.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/details.html

1957-firetruck-germany10

Roughly translated from German:

A very rare treasure. Forget all the assistance systems and all the other bells and whistles that today’s cars have.

This is pure driving!

Swedish Willys truck from 1957 with 3.6 liter Super Hurricane 6-cylinder engine.

An old master mechanic did a lot on the car in just under 100 hours.
Main work: The front was converted to disc brakes with a conversion kit from kaiserwillys.com from America. That’s why 17 inch rims from a Dodge Ram are now fitted. The rims were turned out to match and powder-coated in black.”
