1953 Willy’s Overland Pickup – Sorry all Originals, this Willy will run down the freeway along all
those flashy plastic ones. Dana 44 front and rear, V6 chevy Vortec, 700R4 4speed GM tranny, NP208 TFC, 410 gears. This body will set on IH Scout II chasis, front brake conversion by GM and rear disc brakes.
I was in need of another pickup truck, so decided after buying my 2006 Red rubicon short wrangler, it still wouldn’t work as a truck would. I started looking on craigslist, and found this 53 Willys O. He wanted 3500.00 for it, bargained with the ole boy for awhile, before I drove away without. I told him on the way out, give me a call when you get tired of it settin in your front yard, I’ll come down and get it out your way for 1500.00. About 2 & 1/2 months later, I was on my way, about 80 miles south, Fort Scott Kansas to pick it up.
