1955 July/August Willys News

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

This Willys News issue was memorable for me because when Hugo Vidal was visiting our home from Brazil in 2017, prior to the Alaska trip, I shared some of the Willys News issues with him. He thoroughly enjoyed looking through them because he recognized some of the sales people. When he saw Hickman Price’s photo on the front page, he said, “Oh him, I remember”. That is when I realized that the history I’d collected was a history he’d experienced!

“For sale I have a nice example of a 1956 Willys CJ5. This is running, driving, Jeep that is in good condition for a 64 year old vehicle. It runs, drives, shifts, and stops like an original 1956 CJ5.

The drive train includes the original L134 Willys Hurricane 4 cylinder, original T-90 three speed transmission, original T-18 transfer case (High/Low), Dana 25 front axle, and Dana 44 rear axle. The transmission shifts smoothly and the clutch operates as expected. The front axle has locking hubs. The electrical system has been converted to 12v.

The tub does have rust, some of which has been addressed by a previous owner’s DIY repairs. The rust is primarily in the floor and associated braces. However, this does not affect the drivability.

“Great Fun! Has been in the family over 40 years. It runs, has full roll bar, front and back towing. 2 sets of tires and rims. It has been kept in storage. My father told me it was a 4 cylinder plymouth engine. It is a 4 wheel 3 speed. It has very low mileage. Enjoyable as it is or easily made to look like new. No cracks in the windshield. The original serial numbers are on the under carriage with the 5 pointed star at the beginning and end of the sequence. It has a clear title and has been put on non-op as I cannot drive it anymore because of numerous back surgeries. I will miss it. I learned to drive on it when I was 9 years old. I hope to find it a good home. Some seal are dry and need greasing. You can make an appt to see it. Contact me through my email.”

Year? FC-150 Youngsville, NC $2000

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: Price dropped to $2000.

Chris stopped to see this FC (equipped with a rear PTO and gearbox) and provided the following review:

“I looked at this today (12/27/19):
– The floors are rotting through.
– The drawbar is welded on.
– Some exterior parts are missing from the cab.
– Strangely has FC170 nameplates on the cab corners but it is definitely a wide-track FC150 with the F-134.
– Lots of body repairs with riveted panels
– No title, no governor, no bed, no other parts except what you see.
– The PTO was obviously added later as the shifter is outside the cab.
– The transfer case shift levers are all missing (mount is still there).
-Gentleman selling says it has not ran in probably 10 years but that he used to use it to mow a field.”

“This is a Forward Control Jeep turned into a tractor. It has beefed up springs, a rear Power Take-Off with an agri splined shaft, and an electric fan to enhance cooling at slow speeds. Has not run in years, tires are shot. Would make a great enclosed cab mower, or could be fitted with a backhoe.”

1954-m38a1-winder-ga

“Lots of work done, good driver/parade truck. This is my client’s Jeep and I’ve done 99.9% of the work to it since he acquired it. He is moving in a different direction in the hobby and is putting the Jeep up for sale and since I’ve done all the work for the last 4+ years, I’m helping him sell it.

Details: Currently registered and tagged in Georgia, current owner has the title from the prior owner in Florida (Georgia will not title anything built prior to 1963). Located in Winder, Ga. Vehicle has recently been serviced with new oil and filter, all fluids checked, all zerks greased, etc. All systems on vehicle function as they should: Engine, drivetrain, 4wd, gauges, lights, parking brake, etc.

Condition: Vehicle is in very good driver or parade duty condition. Sheetmetal is above average, but not perfect. Both front fenders were wrinkled at some point and straightened. They are acceptable in their current condition but a new owner looking for show quality perfection will probably want to replace them. Tub corners, rockers, cowl and rear panel are excellent. Vehicle had a replacement floor pan installed at some point and the job was done competently. Rear panel is straight and has never had a tailgate cut in. Windshield is correct M-series Jeep (it’s an M170 ambulance Jeep model, but it’s identical to M38A1 other than two small brackets on top for stretchers) and has new glass and weatherstripping. Vehicle retains all of its original 24V system (25A generator, external regulator, blackout lights, etc.). Most of the wiring is new and retains the original Douglas connectors. The paint is older and a few spots have been touched up but overall it’s a clean and presentable vehicle. Vehicles runs very well, will maintain 50mph, transmission doesn’t pop out of 2nd gear like so many T90s, transfer works like it should, etc. Carburetor is the correct Carter YS950, etc.
