CATEGORY: Willys-Aero

Has potential.

“I got this as part of a package deal, but don’t have time or space to give it the attention it deserves. Currently in metro-Detroit, car has spent it’s entire life in California. Was in storage since 1982. Has CA paperwork.

If you’re not familiar with these cars, they were built in Toledo by Willys Motors, of Jeep notoriety from 1952-1955. This is the last model year, with restyled grille, side trim and taillights. These are uni-body cars. This has the larger 226 ci I-6 and a T-96 OD trans. The engine is common with many of the Jeep trucks and wagons, so replacement parts are available. The tooling to make this car was shipped to Brazil and production of this same model was resumed in the early 60’s. Soft parts like weatherstripping, floor mats and light lenses for this car are available out of Brazil.

Car runs and yard drives. Runs off a motorcycle gas tank and battery which are not included with the sale. No brakes. Tires hold air but are not usable. Car is solid, save for typical rust spots on the front of hood, inner lip of trunk lid, battery tray and front floors. Tried to show these areas in the photos. Odometer shows 44k.

Interior is complete minus headliner and visors, but the seats are chewed up.I pulled off the old aftermarket seat covers so you can see what’s there. Has E-Z-Eye tinted windshield. Many pictures and videos available upon request.”
