ADDITIONAL HISTORY

The Willys Jeep Truck was introduced in 1947 as a 1-ton four-wheel drive truck all the way to 1965. I’ve always loved old trucks but especially the Willys trucks. 


The engine options ranged from day one with Go-Devil inline-4 to the Hurricane inline-4, Super Hurricane side-valve inline-6 and the inline-6 overhead camshaft Tornado. The Willys trucks had several cosmetic changes throughout the years most notably the front grill changes from 49-50. The Jeep Truck was available with only one transmission, the Borg-Warner T-90 three-speed manual, with synchromeshed second and third gears.
