Carl saves a Willys Truck in St. Johns, NL, Canada

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Trucks

This truck was headed towards a crusher until Carl saved it.  He’s not sure what he’s going to do with it, but he felt there was too much value to have it crushed.  Note the custom wheel creation.

“Here are the pictures of the 55 Willys as I found it in a scrape metal collectors yard, it has its original running Super Hurricane engine 4 wheel drive components, head lights, park lights and dash all in tack, 20″ wheels were welded to the original 16’s and it spent the last few years hauling fire wood in rural Newfoundland. It had been abandoned and was set to go to the crusher when I found it and hauled it home.  Not sure at this point what I will do with it, it’s safe for now.”

4 15×8 5×5.5 Hurricane? Wheels Spokane, Wa $250

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

Dan spotted these (truth be told, Dan has spotted a number of deals tonight!) I believe these are 8″ wide hurricane rims; these have the same number of fins as my wheels.

“I have a set of four Modern aluminum wheels. They came with my Jeep CJ5 when I bought it last summer, and I wanted to go back to some stock steelies. They measure 15×8 with a 5×5.5 bolt pattern and 3.75″ backspacing. Comes with all 20 lugnuts and two center caps (have locking hubs on the front and PO didn’t have the other two anymore). They’re in good shape, maybe a little dusty, but no cracks/dings/dents, blah blah blah. All of them hold air perfectly, in fact I replaced all the valve cores about a week ago. I have 31×10.50s with stock springs (with 40 years of sag) and had no rubbing issues for what that’s worth.”

2 Wagons Dayton, WA **SOLD**

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800

Here’s a pair of wagons.  Maybe they will equal a whole one.

“I have a 1949 and a 1958 Willys wagons for sale. They are both projects. The 58 ran when parked and needs battery cable, throttle spring and it should be good to go. The 58 has a Borg Warner Overdrive in it and a new exhaust system. I have too many projects and would like to see them gone.”

1946 CJ-2A Sycamore, Il $3500


UPDATE: This was on eBay, now on Craigslist.

(03/22/2010) This looks well put together.  I like the way that Pontiac engine sits in the engine compartment.  However, I’m confused about one item .. no gauges?  See picture 1.

“This is a 1946 WILLYS and man is it COOL!  The body is all fiber glass and in great shape. It has a 4 cylinder Pontiac motor. The old guy I am selling it for just drives it in parades but it drives real nice and is street legal. It is very clean I did not air up the tires in the picture but thay are fine.

Mark spots an even dozen in Houston

• CATEGORIES: Features

I’ll let Mark set the stage for these pics. I don’t see the pic of the hungry dog though …. 🙂

Mark writes, “On the tough east side of Houston well behind a blighted salvage yard the old guy said “there’s some Willys behind that fence”. As a newby seeing one pass on the highway is a rarity so when I saw this I just about leaked transfer case oil. 12 in all, the Dirty Dozen. Sorry about the quality of the pics, there was this mean looking dog, and he looked hungry.”

Builds: Dan continues to make progress


Dan shared some images updates on the progress of rebuilding his grandfather’s CJ-5.  Truly, I don’t know how he finds the time as he always seems to have nightly craigslist links to share with readers (many thanks for those!).  See some past posts about Dan’s project here.

As you can see, Dan has rebuilt the Hudson steering column, painted the front end, and readied the front end for an updated disc braking system.  NICE!  This will should look great when finished.  Thanks for sharing …

1948 Jeepster Pennsylvania eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

Mark spotted this project.  As Mark noted, this appears perfect for those bondo-challenged rebuilders among us.

“I have a nice 1948 Willys Jeepster project up for auction. The owner of this car had me store it for him over 3 years ago and I haven’t heard a word from him since. By now the storage fees out way the value of the car so the car now belongs to me and is for sale. There is no title for this car due to this situation and that’s why its listed in this section. NOW THE GOOD.  The car was painted at a local car dealership and then moved into my climate controlled shop and has been here since, just like you see it. It looks like it was painted yesterday. Body is great,  all of the yellow and black painted parts seen in pics are ready to reinstall. The frame was stripped and repainted black when the body was done.  A great car to start putting back together. Other parts include the engine, radiator, convertible top frame, seats, moldings, glass, tons of small parts, etc. We were told it was all there when it arrived. Not being an expert, it’s hard for me to say. I cannot find a VIN number, frame numbers etc,  but all seems to be original as we were told by the last owner. The interior of the body is still in need or restoration. the dash was stripped and primed inside. Under the cowl is super clean. The underbody around the floor pans has not been painted but has been mostly sanded clean. I believe a RH rear fender was replaced or worked at one time due to “new” looking exposed metal in the inner wheel well. I would be glad to answer any questions if I can. Other pics also availible.  Feel free to ask. Car is also availible for personal inspection in my shop Thanks!”

1942 MB Kaysville, Ut **SOLD**


UPDATE:  This was a great price at $2000.  It appears sold.

Brett spotted this one. With the plow setup and some good looking tires, this looks like a good price.  The body doesn’t look all that bad to me.

“This is a 1942 Willey’s Jeep. It runs great and has the original drive train. It has not been licensed since about 1964. It has been used to plow my driveway, so it runs between 4 and 15 times a year. It has been serviced every year. The body is in pretty rough shape but is fixable for the right person. It comes with a 7′ snow plow and I don’t want to take it off.”

It didn’t seem like 400 miles — Willys Wagon Brochure

1949 Dodge Fire Power Wagon San Clemente, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The auction expired before it reached its reserve. Bidding hit a high of $50,300.

“This truck was built for the 343 fire fighters that lost their lives on the tragic day of 9/11. This truck has been used in shows so we would never forget that day. I can’t list all the shows this truck has won 1st place in, however, here’s some of them: Concours Delegance, Good Guys, Grand Nationals Roadster Show, Coastline Car Classic, and many, many more. I’ll take a photo of all the trophies if you like (enough to fill up an entire room). The firetruck came from Cooperstown, New York as a mini-pumper firetruck. It was recreated as a woody. This truck has been such a blessing, it puts a smile on all the people’s faces. The truck has 13,000 original miles on all the original running gear. The motor, transmission, front end, and rear end has never been taken apart. It’s been professionally cleaned and repainted. It has 1,500 miles on the brakes, wheel cylinder, master cylinder, tires, hoses, and seals. The wiring harness is all original and is in excellent condition. It’s been changed over to 12 Volts. Everything works but the fuel gauge (needs a diode). The reason I’m selling this truck is because it needs to be seen and not stored. This would make a very nice museum piece that people could appreciate. A part of the proceeds from this auction will go to the Rolling Memorial for Fallen Firefighters and a percentage will be automatically donated.”
