138: Alan St. Germain’s 1954 Willys Truck
This is my 1954 Willys Truck. It has an AMC 360 V8, Turbo 400 transmission, the Borg Warmer 1339 QuadraTrac transfer case, Dana 44 front and rear axles, all four power disk brakes, and power steering. This was a high school senior project of a young man. He almost had it completed when it was involved in an car accident. Instead of repairing it, he sold this green beauty to me. A thirty year dream of mine had now came to pass, I started a frame off repair to asses the damage. The frame was broken in three places with the engine sitting on the frame. After many attempt to find a replacement frame failed, I hired an amazing welder to rebuild the existing frame from the firewall forward. After 15 months, I now have the truck back to the point the young man had it with a few improvements. The interior is now my goal for 2013 to have finished. Doing the work myself, this may take some doing.
