1955 Truck Missoula, MT eBay

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

This nice truck is being auction with 100% of proceeds going to the Clark Fork Coalition which helps protect the Clark Fork Watershed.

“Original flat floor.Truck runs well. Model 6-226. 6 cylinder, 226 engine (correct engine for this model). A CID Flat head side valve engine. Engine has not been re-built, but engine has been re-sealed and gaskets changed. This is a point ignition. Body man and painter did meticulous body work. Very pretty truck. Runs well at 45 mph, geared low.

Full repairs done to the vehicle in 2011. I have a copy of the report that I can share. Basically, this is an amazing little truck. Our donor paid around $10,000 for the vehicle and then put another 10K of work into it … so with this new info it’s actually worth retail of close to 20K. Vin # 55268/11999.

Latest comp test in 2011 on the 6 cylinder engine – all fired at 110 except #3 which fired at 105 – still really good.

The only items of note: Some rust on the floor but this was covered with a plate of sheet metal in the 2011 repair. See photo. And, all cab mounts eventually need to be replaced.

I am receiving a lot of emails about this. If you prefer to talk in person please email me through eBay to set up a time. I am on staff at the nonprofit running the auction but will answer questions best I can.

1951 Truck Independence, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

(12/05/2012) Randy forwarded this eBay listing.  This sure has rusted beautifully!

“1951 Willys Jeep 4X4 Pickup Truck. This is a project that is currently not running and has been setting for the last 30 years. This is a very restorable truck that is a rock crawler waiting to happen. The drive train is complete from engine to rear end. The engine appears not to be original because it is an over head valve, and the engine is locked up and will not turn over, the remainder of the drive train was in working condition when the truck was parked. Although the body is 99% surface rust it is actually very solid and straight. The cab is very nice as is the roof, hood, cowl, grill, rock guard, and doors and these pieces should clean up for paint with very little effort. The fenders are all on the rough side but are repairable. The bed is also very straight but does have through rust in the bed sides and in the floor. The tailgate has minimal rust and will need some work. The glass is all in place except the driver door wing window, the rest of the glass is either frosted or has bubbles from old age and will need to be replaced, but it is all flat glass and should be very economical to replace. The interior is rough, the seat frame and springs are in place but will need to be recovered. All of the guages are in place and the dash appears to be complete. The wheels all turn freely and the tires all hold air, but are 30 years old and dry rotted. All 5 wheels are original to the truck with the factory pin stripe barley still showing. I have tried to decribe this old Jeep the best of my ability, but have probably missed something that you need to know, if so just ask. If you would like to inspect it in person prior to the end of the auction again just ask and arrangements will be made. This Jeep comes with a good Missouri title. The buyer will be responsible for all transpotation costs if required, but I will be willing to assist in loading or pickup on this end if needed. If you are looking for a project or just some good parts you should give this one some serious consideration.”

The Scheneker BackHoe: Anyone Familiar with it?

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

Glenn has a friend working on a restoration of a Scheneker Backhoe.  Due to the lack of information about these, he wondered if anyone out there in Willysland had any additional information about them.  You can either comment or contact me if you want to email me (d@ewillys.com).

He writes, “A local friend is working on a ’55 Willys Pickup with a Schnecker Iron Works BackHoe mounted on back. It looks just like the one in the Willys Special Equipment Catalog. We have been playing with this unit for several years and have never seen another.

We would like to communicate with anyone knowledgeable about these. Probably not many were built as it was not strong enough to take the beating.

As this is being dismantled, it is obvious that much rewelding was required after each use. Complete replacement of the frame is the only answer and a California pickup is here. Frame reinforcements were everywhere and we are trying to find any information as to what was done at the Buffalo Factory.

Somewhere there must be another of these in order for owners to compare notes. This is totally different from the Ottawa on the FC170 later in the 50’s, and also different from the half cab FC170 shown in the current AACA Club Magazine “Antique Automobile” There are many special parts on this vehicle including heavy duty split rim 15″ wheels and a banjo type rear end housing.”

Here are the few brochures found so far:

1955 Truck Denver, CO eBay

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

Fred spotted this nice looking truck. This listing includes ALOT of good quality pics.

“This is a true TIME CAPSULE! Sold with the original title and registration from Oregon do not miss your chance to own a piece of history. This truck comes from the original family that owned it when purchase in 1955 in Oregon. Used originally as a forest service truck to pull out redwoods this machine is a torque monster. Having personally driven this truck I can say it is without a doubt one of the best running WIllys out there. Do not mess around with custom 350 conversions this original straight 6 Super Hurricane engine is up for anything.

Only carrying 90,000 miles the engine runs like new and without ANY hesitation. Fires right up everytime and will take you down the road with its 3 speed manual transmission at 55 all day long. The truck could literally be used as a museum piece, car show winner, or a daily driver. Use it to promote your business or store it in your Willys collection, this truck is AMAZING!

-Original 90,000 Mile SUPER HURRICANE Engine
-Fully functional 3 speed manual trans and 4 wheel lock out hubs
-100% Functional Gauge cluster and speedo (look almost new)
-Fully functional heater and thermostat
-New All terrain Tires
-Original Spare
-Tape player installed in glove box (not a cut up dash unit!)
-Original special order Kleenex Box form Willys still full with the ORIGINAL kleenex!!

This truck really is an amazing piece of history. Only thing on the truck that is NOT original is the interior which was updated in the 80’s as well as the tape player in dash. The truck is 100% rust free and has only sat in a climate controlled garage for the last 20 years keeping it in like new condition. Used 3 times a year to pull floats in parades the truck has been ran and kept in excellent condition making it one the cleanest and best running ORIGINAL Willys in existence.

Will be sold with original:

-Oregon Title
-1955 Oregon Plate
-Full write up in Collector Truck Magazine”

1959 Jeep Rod Braddyville, IA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Willys Trucks

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9600.

“You are looking at a one of a kind custom Rat Rod build with all new parts and done right. The truck has been in my family for years as a stock truck. After sitting in a shed covered for years it was time to pull it out and do something cool and different. The entire truck was stripped and all new parts were ordered. The cab roof was chopped 7″ and the main body was sectioned 4″ to give it a real low mean look. The top roof was removed and replaced with a flat hinged roor that can be opened up to 5” in the rear for air movement and looks. The bed was shortened 1.5′. The frame was built on a jig out of 3/16 2×4 tube “z’ed” front and rear to give the truck a bit over 8″ gound clearance. Listed below are the specs on the truck and I have pictures from the day the build began to the very end if you are interested. This truck was built as a rat rod with all new parts and it was built right. Please ask any questions you may have this thing is a head turner people stop me everytime I drive it! Thanks!

1951 Truck Acampo, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500

This has potential.

“This is a serious project, but it’s all there. Currently has a 235 Chevy straight six. Turns over with compression. Run a year or so ago. Truck has not been registered since 1974. Has black plates. No longer in the system and I can give you a bill of sale but that’s it. Took this truck in on a trade, and maybe I shouldn’t have, but I have ridden in it off road and it is a fun a old beast. Gas tank needs to be mounted and the brakes need work to be any use. 4 wheel drive works fine and she’ll climb anything you want. Will trade for motorcycle, project OK plus $$$ Maybe for a 4 door family car, but that’s about it, no 420, no electronics etc.”
