Description
Willy Overland had a new spirit after WWII. They were the heroes with the Jeep, and as that went over into civilian production, a new truck with the same rugged attitude emerged. This 1949 Willys Pickup is part of those first few post-war years when America was especially optimistic and also hungry for vehicles. So when new, this exact truck was in demand for the way it was a fresh product that was going to build a new America. And the way to say thank you to this for its decades of .....
industrial/commercial duty was to give it a comprehensive restoration. Not only did they upgrade the power and capability but it's also now genuinely comfortable and award-worthy attractive. So check out the strong crate V8, vibrant paint, four-wheel disc brakes, custom interior, and all the other details that make this Willys attractive for being far more than just a rugged post-war hero.

The way this one runs and drives really tells it all. This may have been born to be utilitarian, but the power and confidence in the steering/suspension today reflect a truck that's a premium classic. But the key here is that it never loses that classic pickup spirit. You still have a bench seat, but now it's nicely contoured. There's a simple steel dash, but now it holds your upgraded radio, tilt column, and full gauges. Plus, this still has the best in off-roading with a lifted stance, Dana 44 axles, Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 tires, and a twin-stick 4x4 transfer case. But you can also tell from the freshness in the undercarriage photos that this has not seen the rough stuff since its frame-off restoration. So it's a total package for those who love a real classic 4x4 and also love getting more attention than someone driving a new Range Rover. If that sounds like you, don't miss this unique Willys.
