Classic Car Overview
1950 Willys/Jeep Pickup in excellent overall condition. The listing header incorrectly lists this as a 1951 vehicle which is a website fault. The previous owner replaced the original engine with a 225 cu.in Dauntless V-6. The transmission was replaced with a Borg Warner T14 3 speed and transfer case with a Spicer 20 “silent” unit. The brakes were upgraded to dual circuit (drum/drum) along with a “hill holder”. Power steering was added, electrical system was converted to twelve volt, the windshield wipers were converted to electric and a Vintage Air heat & A/C unit was installed. A removable ladder rack was fitted along with the Delta tool box and a removable rubber bed mat. A custom class III hitch receiver completed his mechanical upgrades. Midnight Blue paint, custom grey interior panels and blue insulated carpet completed his cosmetic changes. Axles and suspension are original to the truck. Warn locking hubs are period correct. Since I acquired the truck, a factory reproduction wiring harness was installed along with custom made sub harnesses for the “hill holder”, back-up lamps, trailer plug, stereo, Vintage Air unit and snow plow controls. These were done without cutting into the replacement harness. A 100 amp single wire Delco alternator supplies power to the Optima AGM battery. An ATC fuse panel powers the non-original accessories. A resistor allows the factory gages to operate properly. An I-pod capable Alpine stereo supplies music to 4 Polk speakers located in the front kick panels and under the seat. 3 point seat belts were installed for safety. The snow plow undercarriage was originally made for a Jeep TJ and was carefully modified to fit existing frame holes rather than creating new ones. The truck is not being sold with the snowplow or hydraulic lift as they will remain with my TJ which is my actual plow vehicle. I will assist in locating appropriate components or I will remove the plow frame/wiring as the new owner wishes. There is an extensive collection of spare parts which go with the truck. A list is available to potential buyers on request. Full manuals for both the original truck and the powertrain (essentially a 1967 Jeep Commando) are included as well as the original owner’s manual and a reproduction.
