This pretty Willys was completely rebuilt (new paint, interior, seats, wheels, tires, water pump, heater, window seals, electric windows, electric wipers, brakes, seat belts, wiring, shocks and motor) about 10 years ago. When the timing chain failed, it sat for 7 years, waiting for me to come along.
I have recently done these improvements: New (plastic) fuel tank (with sending unit) and straps, fuel line, filters, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator (adjustable), timing chain and gears, gaskets (pan, main seals, manifolds, carb, and timing cover), rebuilt carburetor, rebuilt oil bath air cleaner, sliding window glass and track, glove box, oil pressure gauge, temperature gauge sending unit, door panels, floor mats, and hood latches.
Pertronix electronic ignition and “Flame Thrower” coil. All 12 volt. 226 “Super Hurricane” flathead six (high altitude version). T90 3-speed transmission (6 speeds with Overdrive). 4:27 differentials. Completely re-chromed grill, emblem, and bumpers.
All lights (except dome), horn, turn signals and gauges work. Speedo works. Four wheel drive and Warn hubs work great. Overdrive quiet. Radiator (a replacement?) tight (no leaks). New heater hoses. Heater/defrost work. Carpet interior. Vintage Willys wooden handle high-lift jack. Has original rear seats (not shown), and 60’s vintage front seats (one of the only non-original parts). LED upgrade to rear lights. Very little rust. No window cracks.
This wagon is fun to drive and attracts smiles everywhere. It really shines in the snow. Has original spare, with original hold-down bracket.
Rear seats and spare tire now mounted inside.
Thanks for your interest.
