108: Donald Hobson’s 1950 Willys Pickup Truck
1950 Overland Willy’s Pickup. Information about my vehicle: I bought this truck for $800.00 bucks,12 years ago from a guy that drove it from California to Minnesota. Upon arrival, the engine crapped a piston. He stored it in his mothers garage for the next 25 years. When I got it, it was all there. I took it home and had it all apart within a week.
The restoration took me some time to do. (I was in the middle of raising 3 small children) And now I have it finished! It has a 226 motor from a 57 wagon and drive train. Timkin rear axle and a 25 front. This truck is a very early 1950, (1 of 3,600) so it looks like the 49 and earlier.
Hope you enjoy the pic’s!
