Restored 1961 Willys Overland Station Wagon Restomod, located near

attitudes towards family life in the suburbs and with over 300,000
built many Americans who grew up in this era will fondly remember
these vehicles. The Couple who restored this vehicle have owned it
for the past 22 years in North Texas, they found it as a Barn Find
from the Original Owner in Ft Worth Texas, making this a 2 Owner

making around 350HP. Attached to the motor is a GM Heavy Duty 4L80E
Transmission, bolted to a Dana 300 Transfer Case with Advance
Adapter Coupler. The Suspension on this Willys has been adapted to
a Jeep TJ Style 5 Link setup front and rear, allowing for offroad

custom upholstered Jeep TJ seats accommodating two each in the
