Purchased in California as a complete, rolling rust free vehicle in 1996 by Indiana builder John Bennett and turned into a mild hot rod by him over the next few years. All steel original body and frame which has been boxed in appropriate places and powder coated.
350 300 crate engine with coated headers, Edlebrock intake and carb with custom Willys inscribed valve covers and air cleaner cover, aluminum radiator. 350 Trans with B&M shifter. Original dash with Autometer gauges and tilt steering column. Fuel cell and battery mounted in bed with custom cover, note the tailgate has been customized and welded shut. Master battery kill switch mounted in the frame under the bed.
Mustang II style front suspension with Fatman Fabrications front cross member and tubular A arms, coil over shocks and rack and pinion steering and disk brakes. Posi Ford 9” rear with drums. Manual steering and brakes and no HVAC system.
Among included documents is an older CA title showing ownership history back to 1960 and it must have been a driver in 1970 as there is a CHP ticket with numerus defective equipment boxes checked.
Extensive build photos in album put together by the builder. You might not be able to run 10's at the drag strip but this old Willys rides very well and handles the backroad twisties far better than you might expect.
I purchased this vehicle in 2006, these days it spends far too much time just sitting so it's time for it to find a new home.
I have picked what I hope are the best 12 shots to represent this car but I do have many good shots of the engine, interior and underneath so if you’d like to see more, please send a request through e-bay.
For payment I'd prefer a wire transfer or a cashier's check in advance of the pickup even though my preferences say PayPal, I don't know if that works for items this expensive but if it does that would be fine too?
With a little notice I can have this vehicle available for inspection and there is a lift close by we can use should you want to do that. VIN# 71004
