Great stuff. Makes me wish I still had the '61 with the Chevy 250 I swapped in 25 years ago. Wonder where it is now?
I feel the same way. I had a sweet 55 wagon that I wish I still had. That was my first 4x4 in fact. Learned a lot from working on that POS. Loved every minute of it. It had a great running 283 with an SM420/SP18 and I bought a brand new Saturn overdrive for it. It even had the original sweet front bumper with the upper guard and Willys stamped into it. What I would give for one of those now.Great stuff. Makes me wish I still had the '61 with the Chevy 250 I swapped in 25 years ago. Wonder where it is now?
If ya want an opinion. Not bad but.......I have been looking at thousands of photos of wagons and pickups trying to settle on a good color combination. I think I have found one I really like. At least today...
This one looks very similar to what mine will look like as far as stance and lift. Can't wait to get this far.
Any of you guys with Willys wagons said:Pushed it outside for the first time, I wish mine was moving along as fast as yours.
I had that same picture saved of that blue wagon, I thought it look great but now that Im going with a satin look Im thinking about painting it a dark green with ivory inserts and roof but have not found any pics of that color combo.
Great link and I love this build, it is giving me some inspiration to get out and do some work on my 49 Willys truck. :bounce2:If you are looking for paint suggestions take a look at this database. They have some of the original paint selection, including different regions.
When I was looking to paint my pickup, before I sold it, I was leaning towards the Riviera Gray and Bermuda Blue combo.
When my dad was stripping down his wagon he found a creme white color. We were able to match it up with the color chips from the website. I found some blue and red on parts I used on my pickup that I matched up to the color chips. They are pretty accurate.Yea, thanks for the link. I have looked at so many colors lately I can't see straight. It would be pretty cool to go with a factory 2 tone paint scheme.
There are some nice blues.
