It’s a funny story how I (Carl Townsend) found and acquired my 1962 Willys Truck. I was on duty as a deputy sheriff and found some cows that were out. They ran onto a property and through a messed up gate onto a set of loading pens. I saw the ranch owners truck and trailer backed up to the chute on the pens and got concerned that he may have been hurt. The Willys Truck was in a horse stall (see above photo). The rancher was ok but offered to sell me the Truck, which does run, for $500. He said the offer was because I liked the Willys Truck and because I walked all around his place trying to find him to make sure he was ok.
