Does that make me a traitor? Does it join the FJ45 Toyota pick up, carefully out of sight of the Willys? Can I be cured? Should I buy a Prius?


My quest started out looking for an early Power Wagon, but most didn't run, were expensive and weighed like 3tons. Logistically, I couldn't handle something like that. I think it weighed more than my brother's 3/4 Chevy HD. Then I started thinking about the M37 and it was the same situation. I liked that flat fender pin head cab look and realized the Willys fit the bill.

Look what I scored on sunday!







A nicely reupholstered bench seat for my truck. And it's even brown to match! Now I'm torn since I have buckets, from what appears to be from a Fiesta and I've gotten the seat belts to work with them. Also, I kind of like the headrests on the buckets for whiplash protection.

Al, you'll fit in this one.

Not much work done recently. Spent Labor Day working on the truck. Installed the passenger seat belt and changed the rear diff, transfer and transmission oils. Ran out of gear oil for the front diff. It can wait a bit since it's used the least. Worried about the transfer, as it looked kind of shiny liquid metal like. Good thing I have a replacement ready to go with the BW overdrive. Thought I'd post this video as I'm pretty impressed with the work this guy does.

I've seen 4 door versions of these in a pickup body. Very cool.

Here's our new work truck that we picked up. It's a '57 with the 226 and 3 speed. Had a really ugly plow on it with a home fabbed frame. It was supposed to be used to take the brakes off and put them on our '48 CJ2A, the truck brakes bolt right up but are 2" bigger. So far we have just been driving it around.

Ok, got the truck legal to drive on the street! Decided to take it to the hardware store to get some brass rivets to fix the door latch and some countersunk screws for the hardware. Everything went well, got some 10 gallons of Chevron to help dilute the nasty 13 year old gas in the tank and proceeded to the the store. Old fashioned True Value store that has a lot of things packed in a little store. They had a lot of rivets, but none that I needed. They had the screws though in stainless, cool. Time to head home and kick back, temps have been nearly 100deg. Hit the last big hill on the way home and it starts to stall (does that combination of words make sense?). Seems like it's running out of gas, enough to start and run, not enough to accelerate. Crap, I think the questionable vintage fuel pump took a dump. Looks original, like from the mid 70's to the mid 80's. Heard the new E85 can eat up the diaphragm of the pump pretty quickly. Maybe not that quickly. Time to call AAA, since it won't run enough to get over this hill, gotta chock block it.





Hard to tell, but the hill is pretty steep, maybe like 12%. Parking brake won't hold while I try to start it in gear. So I use the chock to do that for me, no go and the battery is just running down. 1 1/2 hours later I'm home courtesy of AAA. Actually, it couldn't have happened at a better time and place, if I had taken the other route home, it's busier, blind curves and no shoulder at all. And even my wife went home this way and stopped. Weather was beautiful when the sun went down and a AAA guy was already at my neighbor's house when my wife got there. He picked up the call from the dispatched driver and that sped things up too.
