1 truck & 2 parts trucks Rockland, ME **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

1955_3trucks_rocklandUPDATE:  **SOLD** Was Free

Here’s a seller who wants all this to go to a single buyer.  There’s an entire plow setup.  If there’s an overdrive in all this, then this might be a deal worth investigating.  Besides, it’s got a cool flashy light.

“Okay, I haven’t been able to sell them, so I’m willing to give them to some who will take them all. The green ’55 was running till a few years ago, but it really needs a complete restoration now.”

Jeeptruck.com – It’s a Jeep Thing “only bigger”

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

I’m attempting to find a website that discusses this Willys/Jeep Truck/Van thingy.  My guess, based on our reader from Israel, is that this is an international vehicle.

So far, I have had no luck finding information about it.  However, in the process of my search, I did stumble upon a great website about Trucks:  JeepTruck.com.  There are features, trucks and parts for sale, a comprehensive links page, and more.

Willys Trucks & Van Boyd, Wa $1000 (1 OD & 1 PTO)

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

Given there’s an OD and a PTO at the very least, there is probably some value here.  The seller doesn’t want to part these out.  It’s gonna be a pain to move all these though.  I see good windows, good glass in the turn signals, at least one set of warn hubs …

“I have 4 early 50s willys, with lots of parts, 3 are trucks and one is a wagon. Off the top of my head i know there is a warn overdrive, pto winch and shafts, a good front bumper/underpan, and adapters to bolt up an SBC. I dont want to spend time parting them out, and i know they are worth more than i am asking (go watch ebay). They are located in Boyds, wa. I can get titles for three of them (i am current owner, but they were lost years ago). Isaac 509-939-5253”

Willys Hy-rail Vehicles

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

Here’s a great website operated by a guy named Dave for Willys Wagon lovers called Willys Country. He wrote telling me he had a single page up for a while, but chose a few months ago to expand it into the present version.  In particular,  The Willys Hy-rail Vehicles Page of the website has some great pictures of willys designed for the railway that I’ve never seen in one location.

The site also covers normal wagons, 3 door willys wagons4 door wagons, a 3 door wagon that came with a suicide back door, a limo used at an airport, and more.  And how about the flattie with the soft half top — I haven’t seen many of those tops in that style.

If you happen to see some of the rare Willys Wagons he seeks, please contact him via his website, as he does attempt to track them.

From the website:

Willys made a variety of Hi-rail vehicles – trucks and wagons – for use on both highway and railroad tracks. These were US manufactured and titled by Fairmont and referred to as Hi-rail vehicles. Hy-rail is short for Highway-railroad.

Fairmont Railway Motors Inc, located in Fairmont, MN, developed road-rail technology in the 1940s to improve flexibility of vehicle use for railroad maintenance. Fairmont was bought by Harsco in the late 1980s. Hy-rail is still a trademark of Harsco Track Technologies and they still sell conversion kits called Hy-Rail Guide Wheel Attachments.

1959 Willys Bucket Loader Griswold, Ct **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Unusual, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons

frontloader_1Brian forwarded this to me.  I love this thing.  I bet the body was toast, so the builder decided to make due with the frame and turn it into a true utility vehicle.  The seller deleted it from Craigslist, so I dont’ know whether it sold or not.  But, I thought it was worth showing everyone.  This might have been a Willys truck?  (I’ve added an example pic at the bottom).

“1959 jeep willy s Bucket loader, Grader, Dump body. Home made but Runs great, new clutch, 36″ tires ford flat head motor Very Strong, Works great for grading roads and driveways Great for farm work to.. Not the prettiest thing but effective and does the job… I want a Bike, I hate to part with this but a bike would save me a lot on gas.. so if you have a Motorcycle that your willing to trade let me know Please send pic and description , I’m not really looking for a crotch rocket but Ill look at what you have and maybe I will like it, but would really like a cruising bike Also I have lots of fire wood so that could be included in this deal depending on the bike”

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

1948_truck_kansasThere’s work to do to restore this custom tow truck, but I thought it had some good character.  The starting bid is $2000, but I think that’s a bit much considering the engine is frozen and there’s other work to be done.

Stuck.Brakes need rebuilding, Warn locking hubs, Winch is homemade from what appears to be a Model A frame, Vehicle frame is NOT rusted, 1 small rust spot on lower cowl side panel, Right side window is cracked.Stored indoors for last 30 years.

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

1951_truck_colbertHere’s 2 trucks and a bunch of parts.  The parts look like they are in pretty good shape.  I don’t follow truck prices that closely, but I think the price is a bit high given both trucks are apart.

It has a professionally rebuilt Ford 289 engine (bored to 291) and C4 automatic transmission, both with 0 miles. Transfer case and remainder of drive train are stock. Rear end is freshly rebuilt.
