1962 Willys Truck overview
A LITTLE BACKGROUND INFORMATION
The seller purchased this Willys in July 2016 from and old friend who was a long time hunting guide in Dorchester County Maryland. That gentleman had owned this truck for at least 40 years and probably longer. The last several of which found the truck sitting unused and in a state of disrepair. Upon purchase the seller began a 6 month quest to bring the Willys back to life. A full frame off restoration was performed. Full documentation and receipts totaling approximately $36,000 will be provided to the winning bidder. The truck was completely disassembled and the frame, engine, transmission, cab went to various locations here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland for the work required. The engine and transmission were completely rebuilt (the vast majority of parts used in the restoration were purchased through Kaiser Willys). The frame was repaired and all rust sections replaced. The floor pans are new. The truck bed is new as are the fuel tank and radiator (not original). All glass and weather stripping is new. Original seat with new upholstery and door panels. New leaf springs, shocks and brakes.
