5 yrs. ago my dad and I started looking for my 1st car. I found it, this 1949 Willys Overland Pickup. It has a Chevy small block 350 engine.The seat is a Dakota bench. Everything else is Willys. I picked the color and we got most of our parts from you and fellow customers on your forum. He wanted to teach my little brother and I how to work on cars. We stripped the vehicle down to the frame and started from there. He taught us to weld, grind, body putty, and paint. We have spent 4 years working and learning. I now have my provisional licenses ,so I get to drive it to car shows and on sunny Sundays. Janurary 2012 I get to drive this everyday.
