2nd owner 47 Willys

My uncle has the 47 Willys that his dad bought new. It's still all original, except the seats.
I was out that way this past weekend, and talked him into taking the tarp off it so I could take some pics.
He still uses it nearly every day on the farm. When he was younger, he used it to pull spray rigs and pipe trailers, irrigating, checking livestock, etc. Now he uses it for all that PLUS parades.










I also met a cousin for the first time, who has a Jeep / Willys (some of them are for sale, not the blue one, not the CJ). Most of them are projects awaiting some time in the shop.

Ever so jealous. That pickup is pretty and that little green two seater has so much potential as a restoration project.

cool!! do you know where it originally came from? you used to be able to order a complete willys jeep from the sears catalog for $50. they would ship them in a crate with the wheels off and the windshield laid down.

My thought exactly! Dirk says it still runs, just dies when he tries to make it go anywhere. Unfortunately, that one isn't all original anymore. He bought it semi-restored. He didn't mention what motor was put in. Apparently most of the Jeeps from that year were cut up to keep out of the civilian population, and this one somehow escaped. (That's what he was told by the PO )

My pleasure! I always loved that old Willys. I remember riding across the pasture in it as a kid.

I'm afraid I don't remember many details Dirk told me about his collection. It was a blur of numbers, which ones needed what parts, and a family get-together all packed into an hour. He did say that one only needs a starter to get her on the road again, but I don't remember if he was talking about a Wagon or the Pickup.

I honestly don't know where Poppy got it. My uncle would have been about 6 when they got it, so I doubt he remembers ever NOT having it.
Apparently it needs a transmission, though. My uncle is the only one out of many who can get her into second gear. Everyone else has to rev her up & shoot for third.

That's a great collection!!! A friend of mine had one of those old pickups years ago. He jacked it up and put 38's on it, we were just talking about it the other day....he said that was the pullingest jeep he'd ever owned and he's had several. Never broke anything on it or had any trouble with the 38's. Sold it to another friend who totaled it out..
