WILLYS & WILLYS PARTS

  

To see some parts pickups etc., scroll down, down, down.  

December 2, 2017

Here is a nice 56 for sale.  This is the copy of the Craigslist ad running as of December 2, 2017.  
$3500 or a decent offer.  
Nice little Willys pickup that has been pretty well maintained and had some recent engine work. It has the 6 cylinder Hurricane engine that the previous owner told me had recently been freshened with bearings, rings and a valve job. It runs very well, quiet and no misses or strange noises. Excellent oil pressure. Has a new battery, generator works fine, etc. Gauges work but the oil pressure is an add on. Speedometer doesn't work but maybe just needs a cable. 

Has nice seats -- maybe from a Volkswagon - I dunno. Good floor mats, door panels are there. 

I bought this last summer to use for a little ranch truck. Probably put 30 or 40 miles on it hauling some fence posts, junk etc. It worked good for that but is hard for me to get in and out of. Too old and too fat. 

The bad: It is missing the front drive shaft so the four wheel drive doesn't work but the transfer case and etc is all there. Not hard to find a drive shaft and put it in. 

Tires are terrible. But they are 16 inch rims and tires are easy to find for them. Even has a spare. 

Pretty scabby homemade flatbed. Gas tank needs the filler relocated. It is just a chunk of rubber hose and some pipe now. Other than that, the tank doesn't leak, fuel pump works fine. .

The design of the seats makes it hard for an old fat guy to get out of them. That's at least part of the reason I'm selling it. The other reason is I have 4 other Willys pickups. None run so I want to take the money from this and spend it on getting the 54 I have running and driving. 

More good: I have a parts pickup for this one I'd sell pretty cheap since I have been paying storage on it for about 800 bucks worth. It needs a new home. It has a 4 cylinder F head that is supposed to run, a front driveshaft, etc.

Pretty scabby homemade flatbed. Gas tank needs the filler relocated. It is just a chunk of rubber hose and some pipe now. Other than that, the tank doesn't leak, fuel pump works fine. All the lights work, has good battery cables, etc., etc. 

No texts, call me or email me. Phone number is in the reply section. It is located near Helena. Come take a look, bring a stack of green Ben Franklins or a good check on a Montana bank and you can take it home. 

I don't need help selling it, I already have so much stuff I'm probably not much interested in trading for anything except green Ben Franklins. I've sold so much stuff on Craigslist I recognize the scam emails pretty quick. 

Wouldn't take much to make a really cute little truck out of this. 

I have a clear, current, numbers matching Montana title for it. I have more pictures, just haven't loaded them yet.

HERE IS A VERY VERY NICE LITTLE 1949 PICKUP.  IT is not totally original since it has a later F head engine.   That is very typical of these early pickups that came with the little GoDevil 4 cylinder flathead.  They were pretty short lived and the F head had more power and could take more speed without blowing apart.  It also has 15 inch wheels and would look better with 16's which originally came with it.  They are not so hard to find but I didn't have a set and wanted to get tires on this. 

You will probably notice that the left rear wheel is not setting straight.  The clamp on the spring was missing when we took these photos.  It's fixed now.   

I have a clear, current (2017) Montana title in my name with numbers that match the vin plate.  It came with the original Montana title from 1949 as well as a later title.  I had to turn that in to transfer it to my name.  It has current Montana license plates on it.  

Take a look at this pickup and you will be hard pressed to find one this original, rust free and complete.  This is worth every dime of $7500 but I will listen to close offers.  I would keep it myself but I have a 54 I've already put all sorts of time and money into and I just have too many projects, not enough money and time.  (Plus I'm old)

Take a look at the photos, give me a call and come take a look.  406-949-3448  stanhowemt@aol.com

SOLD!!!! LEAVING FOR SOUTHERN UTAH TO BE RESTORED!  
    

1951 Willys pickup with 50's Ford Flathead V8 installed.  As it sets but with roller tires installed -- $3000 cash, check or USPS Money orders.  No paypal, no credit cards.  


I bought this last spring with the intention of getting the flathead running but I never had 5 minutes to do anything with it all summer. I’m paying storage and it needs to go to a new home.

It is pretty solid, the cab is decent, the box is decent, the running boards are on it and it probably has the nicest set of back fenders I’ve seen in years. The big, beautiful diamond plate bumper kept them from getting hammered. The flathead looks good, we have not done anything with it. The guy I got it from said his dad ran it in the building 30 years ago and shut it off, just never got around to doing anything more with it and bought a newer Jeep so this one just sat.

From dry, windy, rust free Montana. The worst thing looks to me like those 70’s white spoke wheels. I have a set of 15 inch tires we will put on it so it’s easier to load. I would prefer that you come to Helena, Montana and pick it up but I will get it up on rubber and help get it loaded if you need to ship it.

Sorry I don’t have a title. I’ll provide a notarized bill of sale.

I already know it has a later grill in it but the registration that matches the VIN says it is a 51.

You’ll look a while to find one this solid. Give me a call, I want it gone.

This is the text of the Craigslist ad from April 18, 2017:  I bought this a couple years ago with the intention of restoring it. I have a couple other Willys pickups and CJ's and thought this would be lotsa fun with the flathead in it. The reality is -- no time, no money, no place to work and no energy to do it. It's for sale, the pictures pretty much show what it is. Probably has the nicest box and back bumper I've seen in years, not much serious rust anywhere. The guy I got it from said his dad drove it in the shed and shut it off about 30 years ago and was always going to get it out and get it running again. It shouldn't take too much to get it going is the way it looks to me. 

I'm not a flathead expert but a couple friends looked at it and told me they think it is a 52 or 53 59AB engine. 

It would look a lot better with the 70's white spoke wheels gone. I may have enough extra stock wheels to get it up on rubber or I will come up with a set of tires to get on this so it will roll and load. 

My phone number is in the reply section, probably a waste of your time and mine to text since I pretty much don't respond to them, most are scammers anyway. Email or phone. There are also more photos on montana barn cars dot com. Click on the willys tab. 
There are a couple other Willys on there too. Take a look. Free to look. 

As always, I may be open to alternative pricing suggestions. Give me a call, come look, bring cash, make an offer, can't insult me and I might take it. 

I do not have a title and am not sure of the exact year, I think it is a 50 because it has the running boards and they dropped them after 50. It also has the 1950 style gauge cluster. Your guess is probably as good as mine. I'll give you a bill of sale with the year after we agree on what it is. 

Thanks for looking

SOLD AND GONE TO UTAH TO BE BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE!!

This one is coming in, I bought it last summer up by Harlowton, haven't been able to get anybody rounded up who could go along with me and help load it.  I hope to have it back in Helena some time soon, need to get it back here before winter.  It is pretty nice, I love the dual spotlights and all that, should be a good one to restore.  $3500 No title, I'll provide a notarized Bill of Sale.  These are all the photos I have, I was there getting it ready to haul a month or so ago; as you can see I put the tire on the front, aired up the tires and moved it but ran out of daylight to load it by myself.  We will unload the iron out of the back and haul it home in a few days.  The floors are pretty solid, the seat cushions are in it, the cab is amazingly straight, the box is mostly solid that can be seen, the glass is good overall, it has two of the coolest spotlights I've ever seen and the Falcon or Eagle ornament on the cab is worthy of acclaim!!  It appears to me that they drove it up in front of the garage, shut it off and never used it again.  It is, as near as I can tell, all complete down to the knobs on the dash, has a very cool gun rack in the back window and has the best patina ever.  I would like to just get it running and drive it the way it is but I have way too many projects and not near enough time or energy so it is for sale.  There is no tailgate.  The guy I bought it from was going to look around and see if it is laying somewhere but for now, it sells as is with no tailgate.  Stan Howe















2016 11 1 ---  Here is an early 50's with a Ford 6 engine and a grain/stock bed on it.  Looks like a fun project or a lot of parts but it will need a lot of work if you are going to restore it.  MAKE ME AN OFFER, IT IS STILL SETTING WHERE I BOUGHT IT LAST SPRING!!!  THEY WANT IT GONE AND I WANT IT GONE.  




2016 1 20 --------   This nice little pickup sold shortly after I put it on here so I won't be adding more photos.  Thanks for all the interest, emails and calls.  It is going to a good home.  (THIS IS NOT THE ABOVE ONE -- IT WAS A DIFFERENT ONE THAT SOLD)


  

NOVEMBER 1, 2016 Sold!  Gone to the Billings area to be restored to original.  

PICKED UP THIS NICE CJ2A A FEW WEEKS AGO.  IT IS A 48, ALMOST TOTALLY ORIGINAL.  WE ARE DOING SOME WORK TO THE ENGINE.  It hasn't run for about 20+ years, just out of inside storage, rebuilt the carb and it runs but has a couple stuck intake valves.  We will pull the head and put a new set of valves in it or you can do the work, I have a new complete set of USA made valves and guides and a gasket set for it, also just rebuilt the original Carter WO carburetor with a $50 kit, it should take very little to get this running and driving.  I'm looking at close to $4000 if I have the work done, less if you do it.  I has previously been converted to 12 volt, price includes a new in-the-box alternator conversion along with a few other small parts.  It is in Helena.  

HERE IS AN INTERESTING DEVELOPMENT ON THIS ONE!!  A guy from Holland wanted just the cab, as he said original cabs are non-existent in Holland and most of Europe.  So I sold him just the cab, we will be taking it off and shipping it to him.  The rest of it is for sale, it's a worthy project, overall pretty rust free and is all complete.  We never did do any work on the engine, just no time.  So the Jeep as it sits is $2000.  Give me a call if you want to take a look.  

EXCELLENT RUNNING GEAR AND NICE MONTGOMERY WARD CAB WITH ROLL UP WINDOWS.  GIVE ME A CALL ABOUT THIS ONE.  406=949=3448
