Willys Wagon Pics

Here goes, a pic of my Willys Wagon project. It's a '61 body on a '55 frame, 283 V8, TH400 auto, Dana 18, Dana 44s f/r, ps, tilt, disk brakes, 33x9.50 BFG. I just put the tranny back in after a rebuild, just a few more things to finish and it'll be a driver again.

Re: Willys Wagon Pics

Brings back memories ... My first jeep was a '50 Overland Wagon. Had a lot of fun with that one. It wouldn't get out of it's own way on the road but it was damn near unstoppable on any trail.

Re: Willys Wagon Pics

Todd-
It looks great and I love the drive train combo you put in it.
How were you able to mate the TH400 to a T-18 TC??
This is the second time I've heard of sticking in the old Chevy 283 in the shorter Willys front clips and it sounds like just the ticket for my '57 CJ-6.

Re: Willys Wagon Pics

The previous owner did the engine/tranny swap. It's got a A.A. adapter between the auto and model 18. The motor mounts are a hack job, but I swapped a grille for some nice A.A. mounts. That's on the list for future upgrades, along with bumpers, paint, etc.

Looks good.

I just picked up a 61 Willys Wagon.

Would a 4.0 out of a Grand Cherokee fit in the Willys Wagon?

Re: Willys Wagon Pics

yeah I bought one of those about ten years ago. It had a snow plow on it a Warn overdrive and very heavey steel diamond plate ALL THE WAY AROUND IT, this was one very heavy unit the best part is I only paid $275.00 for it. Still have the Plow, Parted out the rest and made about 800 dollars on it. And still making money with the plow. 0.02 but mine didnt look that sharp
