I bought the bronze 49 truck over a year ago, as I always wanted one. My Grandpaw had an old fishing truck when I was growing up. He took us everywhere in it. I remember it, and mainly the wooden side boards. Always liked the looks and wanted one. Now I’m afraid I’m addicted and have added another to my collection.
Well, since my INITIAL FIND of the 1949 bronze Willys Truck, ” my ADDICTION” has led me to get yet another to add to the herd. Got a 1948 Willys truck, 3 speed, 4 cylinder motor, clamshell rear end, and redoing it, like I have done the 1949 bronze one. I like these ole flatnose trucks. Guys, do yourself a favor and get one of these super solid and dependable Willys Trucks. They will out live all of us. The Kaiser Willys folks have great affordable and hard to find parts and super advice. Willys made trucks the way they should be made nowdays. I have a 2009 Ford pickup, but I am sure BOTH WILLYS will outlast it. The Willys are fun to work on and fix up and fun to drive on the Ranch and to town to get hay and feed. The Longhorns don’t seem to mind it either, and my dog, Cinch likes riding it them. The pic with the skelton, well, just to symbolize that Willys LAST FOREVER !!!! I am a retired Army RANGER and rode bulls for the Army also, so love the outdoors, and will pass on these Willys to grandkids when I am gone.
