Hi Moses I nearly bought a J20 & then this came along & these things are as rare as over here so I had to have it after seeing a fargo power wagon on an old movie & just thought it was the most awesome truck i had ever seen this 1 has been built from various trucks that had all seen better days but the old guy who had been restoring it had to give up due to age & health reasons but it is 95% done the body is done as is the mechanical & electrical it only needs the glass fitting & maybe paint the hood he was going to leave it due to good patina but im not sure it works with the rest of it being painted it has the 251 flat head six & non syncro 4 spd the cab is a 46 aussie dodge cab the chassis is m601 & much of the panels came from a 54 power wagon so im still waiting for it to arrive so ill get more pics & some more detail when it arrives cant wait cheers Ian
I picked up this 1966 Willys 4WD Pickup. It has a good body and Toyota 3B diesel engine transplant. The truck has a mysterious 2-piece windshield, odd for that year. A closer look shows it was originally a one-piece, correct for 1966. The last U.S. Willys Pickup was 1964, they still made them in Australia after that point. Nice bumpers. I will likely put a Toyota bed on this truck. A better body than my 1957 Willys project. Will likely work on this one instead for now. Diesel engine is enough for this truck, drives well and get really good fuel mileage. Right hand drive with signs of being built at Australia. VIN says 1966 build. Below is a very interesting letter that describes how Willys made VIN numbers. This VIN code sheet is useful to older Willys-Jeep model identification. Here are the three VIN tags.
day 1 the track starts just out of Hyden so we stopped in at the famous wave rock for a quick pic before hitting the track the orange flower is a grevillia a native shrub we collected some firewood & found suitable campsite so most of the day was just driving to the track on the black top
