After sitting idle for 10 years, the seller of this Willys Wagon has decided to offer it for sale. Described as running when parked, this wagon looks straight and rust free and makes us (optimistically) think it wouldn't take too much to get it back on the road.
The Hurricane 6's carburetor went AWOL at some point, but other than that the seller claims that this Willys is 100% original and complete. Once you get the carburation situation sorted, the F6-161 Hurricane should be good for 90 horsepower and 135 ft/lb or torque.
If originality isn't a concern, or a more modern powerplant is desired, there's no shortage of SBC options out there. If the body and frame are as rust free as they appear, an upgrade to a newer motor and 12v electrical system might not be bad money.
The vintage plate, and Denver dealer badge make us think that this truck has spent its life in Colorado. Whatever its history, this truck’s condition certainly looks like it enjoyed salt free roads one way or another. The paint is faded and has some surface rust but is still more than serviceable. Chrome looks shiny and straight enough, though the rear bumper looks like it may have a story to tell.
Inside, things are the definition of spartan but look to be clean and original. Glass looks good other than a couple of cracked windows in the back which shouldn't be hard to replace.
We're not 100% sure but this truck looks like it received the optional locking Warn hubs up front, or some reasonable facsimile thereof. New tires will be called for but hopefully some similar skinny AT's can be found for the paint-matched rims.
This Willys is for sale on eBay with a starting bid / reserve of $3,500. We're surprised there haven't been any bids yet, but at this price it seems crazy not to throw a bid in.
