International Patent Plate?

Robin just brought home a 1951 truck from Wyoming. Accompanying his new purchase is the plate shown below. Was this a plate used on exported trucks? Neither Robin nor I remember seeing a plate quite like this. My google searches yielded nothing.

1956 Truck Houston, TX No Price

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

The bumper could use replacing, but this pic hints that this might be in decent shape.

This is a 1956 4 wheel drive Willys pick up. I believe it’s all original including the 134 CID 6CYL and Borg Warner transmission. It was a running truck when I bought it as a project 2 years ago. It has since been started a few times but has not been run in about 6-8 months. Will require a tune up to be road ready again.

1957 Truck Massillon, OH $2500

Bob spotted this running truck. Because of the wheels, at first I thought this had a S-10 swap, but it doesn’t.

1961 Truck Fort Worth, TX **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on eBay

I’m pretty sure the truck bed has been recently painted from black to green, which helps this look better.  It’s too bad the color doesn’t match the rest exactly (given the price).

“Jeep is the original American 4×4, and even decades ago, you can see that Willys was serious about going off-road. This ultra-nice 1961 Willys Jeep pickup an awesome do-anything machine, the Swiss Army knife of off-roaders, and a darned good-looking truck to boot!

Go ahead and try to find another one of these, let alone one this nice. Wait, let me make it easy for you—you won’t. Someone spent the long dollar to bring this one up to show standards, then filled it with comfort and convenience items to create a kind of resto-mod Jeep pickup. The angular sheetmetal, complete with that instantly-recognizable Jeep front end, is completely stock. Whatever this truck’s previous life might have been, it’s now in near show condition with panels that fit together better than new, paint that sparkles like the stuff you find on a new Lexus, and still carrying a big dose of practicality. The medium green paint works especially well with the reproduction Sinclair Gasoline decals on the doors (go ask your grandfather about it), and adds a sense of functionality. The surprisingly big bed has been covered in color-matched bedliner material, so it’s still up for the rough stuff, there are tubular bumpers fore and aft, and just enough chrome to remind you that this truck was built for civilians.

Originally, the interior in a Jeep like this was little more than a lightly upholstered bench and some basic controls, but during the restoration it got a full makeover. Today it offers a trick pleated look that’s totally custom but still looks right in the upright cab. Matching door panels were added to soften the interior a bit, and there are now carpets on the floor, not rubber mats. The original dash is painted to match the body, and the factory-issue gauges are still in the center, but they’re now flanked by a set of Auto Meter Phantom gauges, including a clock, and surprisingly, they look exactly right. There’s also an AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glove box with speakers neatly hidden, so you won’t even know it’s there until you hear it.

The engine is still a correct 226 inline-six, the powerplant of choice when reliability matters. Rebuilt and neatly detailed in original olive green, it starts quickly with a pleasant grumble, and idles smoother than you’d expect from a workhorse. Underneath, the chassis was completely restored and with only 98 miles on the restoration, it’s as clean as it’ll ever be. The transmission, transfer case, and both axles have been freshened, and all the lines and hoses are new, so you won’t have to worry about heading off the pavement. And simply nothing looks better on one of these old rigs than the original steel wheels with skinny 7.00-16 off-road tires.”

1952 Truck Central Point, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

UPDATE:   **SOLD** Was $2300.

This runs and drives, but could use a little work. It sounds like a good restoration candidate.

“I have a 1952 Willy’s Overland Jeep truck 4×4… Has the original F head 134 engine, t90 3 spd trans. Engine runs good, good trans, drives decent for an old 4×4… Most of the glass is good, but needs a driver’s side door window. 4×4 works great! Has been wired for brake lights, but not turn signals, has round LED brake lights. Good tags. Interior not bad. Very straight, rust free, original body. Truck has a LOT of potential! Heater works!”

1957 Truck Project Dublin, NC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

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.
