Dragged this one home for a buddy a little while back. Current plans call for Waggy 44s to start with, 63"/56" springs, and a 4bt. Already traded the two rough cabs for one sexy one in good shape. Gonna be a slow build though.

The stock axles are thoroughly thrashed, and the 305 that someone welded in is a boat anchor. We've already got the axles and springs squirreled away, so the drivetrain is the only question left.

Hell, I've got a spare SRW D60 at the house I'd let him put in it, but then he'd have to find a matching front end to go with it.

My money tree just won't bear any money. Please pass me some seedlings as well. Thanks

I've been looking all over for a thread like this. Glad to have found it.

Just got a 63 Willys Pickup and am in the process of ripping it down to the frame. I'll post some pics up as I take them.

Hello. I just joined this Old Willys "Club". I have a 63 Willys Wagon that has a SBC in it. It's almost done. My buddy Terry and I are working on a 57 Willys Pickup and converting it to a 87 Chevy 4x4 Pickup Chassis. Here's a Pic of what it's starting to look like.
http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_...4019_large.jpg

I want to install Wheel Well Headers on this. The Headers have to go OVER the frame rails and down through the Wheel Wells and dump out at the end. I've been looking online at all the speed shops, but not all of them include the measurements etc and I cant' tell what will fit and what won't. Does anyone on here know where I can find some headers that will fit with my setup? The 87 Chevy Chassis has a 350 in the stock location. I will post more on this project as I go. Thanks ahead of time for any info you guys (and gals) can give me. I'll be up late tonight checking out the rest of this site. Later

1960 Willys Wagon Begins!

I just dragged this home over the weekend:



I'm told that it's a 1960 wagon sitting on a mid-70s k1500 frame.
Under the hood is a pre-87 350 mated to a 700r4.

Here, so far, is what it needs: sand-paper, the kickdown cable adjusted, a battery, battery cables, a head gasket, a tie-rod end, a thermo switch for the radiator fan, a whole lot of sand-paper, new foot-well repair panels for both sides (don't trust the shady "repair"), hood-hinge repair-welding, tailgate-hinge repair-welding, more sand-paper, some sheet metal for the rear inside fender, a few windows, a horn, and a gps speedo.



The door handles (outside) only kind of work. The armrests are missing. The front windows both roll down and up just fine, triangle "smoker's windows" work too.

Windshield wipers are at the top of the windscreen for no good reason, and are operated by hand.

Separately.



The headlights work, but none of the other original knobs are connected, all are in a state of deterioration. Aftermarket tach, engine temp, and fuel-pressure gauges all work. Original speedometer may still function, but is not hooked up to the chevy drivetrain. Original temp/fuel gauges in the speedo don't work.

Hard plastic seats might have been from a go-kart, but at least they are mounted onto functioning sliders.

Front bumper is silly, too far forward, and too low.



Needs a rear bumper fabbed up, too.

As soon as the weather lets up I can start attacking the outside and the engine. For now, it's sand-paper time on the inside, along with some PB Blaster, some Break Free, and a fair amount of Simple Green!

I have to say that I really like the mix of the Commando and the Willys hood and grill, then you throw in the tube fenders and it just really comes together into a solid looking rig!!! Keep up the good work!!!

At least you managed to fit it into your garage... I'm still working on making space! At when the wind is blowing snow sideways up here at 9,200 ft it makes it hard to work outside!

Agreed. I've always loved the Commando's shape, but I hate looking down at them!

yeah getting it in there was a pain, I couldn't fit it in with the rear tires as this thing has 4" worth of lift blocks on the rear which makes up for some of the flat /dead rear leaf spring arch. I couldn't afford nice metal car dolly's, so i bought some wood ones with same weight rating and squeezed her under the garage door. only broke one of the dolly's right I finished moving it into the garage. As for what year your Wagon is, it you looks to have all the markers to be a 1958,1959 to mid 1959 year model before then went back the elbow chrome. And the Windsheild wipers are totally some ones brand-Child.....Wagons never came with those. The body looks to be fair on your considering her locations and looks of application.


And i love that Commando/ Wagon Combo, shes a real beauty

It took most of the weekend, but I have finally cleared a bay in my garage. I'm hoping that I can make the clearance by airing down my 35s. If I can get her in out of the wind, I might actually be able to get some work done on her!

My 57

-1957 Willys Truck
-Revamped in 1994 totally(built for hunting)
-spent from 2000-2011 outside and uncovered(I was away in the military)
-chevy 350(which I think i'm going to drop a 383 or a 427 into it)
-Has a Dana 44 up front, Corporate 14 in the rear, with Detriot lockers
-Had a bed, but it was a Piece(building a sweet custom flat bed for it)

Now after saving for a decade, I have the money to throw into it. She's in the body shop prepping for paint(frame up) and few custom things. No offense to ALL the yellow Willys out there, but it's way too overplayed! So, i'm going with something not as common. The interior will be completely Rhino'd(minus the dash, which will match the exterior). Some things will be welded and smoothed, good bye to the hood latches for sure. This is not a restoration, it will be a complete transformation into what I had envisioned from day 1 back in the early 90's, now I have the funds for it. I'll post more pics as she gets rolling.

Just ordered:
-Corbeau LG1 seats, brackets, and harnesses
-New floorpans
-Autometer American Muscle gauges
-Fab Fours diff covers
-New Fox Shox
-All new Glass
-All new weather seals and gaskets
-Custom Carbon Fiber Door Panels
-just finished upgrading the entire fuel system and exhaust
-can't decide on new wheel tire combo.....

I'm loving this rig. The ends on that bumper is a nice touch.
