“In ’48, Willys built three versions of the pickup. One had a regular bed, one had a flatbed, and you could buy one without a bed to customize anything you needed like an ambulance, firetruck etc. This has a flatbed.
As far as I can tell, this jeep has lived its life on a farm in South Texas where it’s hot and dry. There is no rust that I can find so this is a very solid platform. Luckily, virtually every part on these old Willys Jeeps is available through a variety of sources and I’ve replaced or rebuilt many of them. You could take this truck any direction you want. Leave it the way it is and have a ball with it. Or take it all the way to a totally restored model with new shiny paint etc. and it would be worth something in the mid $30Ks. Continue reading
Seller is really only looking to trade, so many not be serious about the $20k price.

The Willys Truck is a well crafted example of a blend of old and new, with a tastefully modified vehicle restored to a maximum quality finish. The body and sub-frame are original and in an excellent state of preservation. All restored parts have been taken down to bare metal and repainted to a standard of high quality amateur restoration reflecting excellent workmanship. Everything on the vehicle is in good working order. The original 6 cylinder 115 hp engine has been replaced with a Chevrolet small block V-8 350 hp engine. All components are rust free and the vehicle has been housed in conditioned space since restoration. Pre-restoration the truck was a working farm vehicle for most of its life in Iowa, and was restored by an RV dealer who was personal friends with the original owner and who has restored over a dozen 50’s vintage vehicles.”

“hi there, i have a 1951? willy’s pickup truck for sale. it is an early truck because it has the split rear axle, split windshield and early gauge cluster. Engine runs great. has the f134 overhead vale 75hp engine. she moves and shifts great. IT IS A 4X4 1 Ton pickup… at least back in 1951 it was rated as a 1 ton she does not have brakes body is so so…Needs love. Frame has rust out in some spots but it was common on the willys pickup trucks. i have another frame that can be used to repair some of it. that frame has rust out too. have another cab with glass in it that is not cracked and i have very good glass for the front windshield. have another set of axles that comes with it to… they have locking hubs and are from a later willys pickup but would great on this truck too. i have a bunch of the harder to find parts for this pickup too like glass for the marking lights and stuff like that.
this willys would make a GREAT winter project. i have too many projects and could use the money for better uses like for my wedding the cons are: i dont have a title for it and there is not a vin tag on it so that would be a hurdle you would have to cross at some time.
she can be seen at the end of the road at 550 amelith rd, freeland MI 48623
she is not set up right now to run but if you are serious about buying her i can rig it to show you it running.

(07/29/2015) This appears to be a nice restoration with an interesting history.
“I have a 1952 Willys Pickup with original 134-F engine and drive train. I’ve been working on the restoration for the last couple of years and is mostly completed. I have receipts for several thousand dollars in new parts. The truck was originally purchased by the Department of Agriculture for use in the Forest Service, (still has asset tags) then sold to private owner who passed it down to his son, who sold it to me in 2013.
The truck is drivable and licensed with a collector plate.
