This Willys Jeep Pickup Is A Perfect Period-Correct Classic Truck

During World War II, the Willys Jeep acted as one of the most established troop transport vehicles in the military. It was lauded for its bomb-proof construction, its dependable powerplant, and its reliability on, and off of the roadway, making it a trusted platform tried and tested in the world’s most adverse conditions.

After the war, the Willys Jeep took on a much more domesticated role within society. Thanks to its status as one of the most formidable vehicles during the war period, its reputation aided in its transformation to become one of the industry’s best-selling consumer models, and a progenitor to the Golden Age of the pickup truck. The meticulously-restored 1960 Willys Jeep Pickup that you see here is one such platform. It boasts a Continental-built, 226 cubic-inch “Super Hurricane” L-head inline-six engine capable of 105 horsepower and 190 ft-lbs of torque, a vertical grille, inboard round headlamps, and flat fenders on its exterior, resulting in a period-correct aesthetic that’s rarely seen in today’s automotive market. Inside, you’ll find hard-wearing seat upholstery, a molded, Willy’s-branded rubber floor mat, and original switchgear to operate the vehicle’s various amenities. Head to Hyman Ltd.’s website to inquire about the classic, which is slated for sale at $49,500.

Purchase: $49,500
