For Sale: 1951 Willys Jeep in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

We don't have to tell you this one is something special because the bright bare metal shine already does that. So while the body is made to resemble a 1951 Willys Jeep, this is really running on an upgraded Bronco 4x4 chassis, has four-wheel disc brakes, is built with the best off-road features, and is powered by a stout 351 V8.


We love the style of this one because the silhouette and grille remind us of a classic Willys, but the vintage appearance ends there. After all, you never got a military Jeep done polished bare steel and aluminum like this custom machine. And there are cool hot rod details, like the louvered hood and side exhaust tips. But what we really like is how this one signals it's ready for modern duty with that Badland 9,000lb winch up front. In fact, you have your headlamps and a bull bar mounted right up there, too. The sides show off the black step bars, but the dark feature really catching your eye is the set of 20-inch Fuel wheels. And the rear continues the look of both style and function with a tubular steel mounting rack for the spare and off-road jack. There's even a trailer hitch so you can bring even more of the fun with you.


The interior shows you this is built for proper off-road use. This includes a full roll cage for added safety and strength. There are two low-back competition-style bucket seats, and the sale also comes with the kits for two G-Force harnesses. This one is built to give you a good command of the vehicle. That means a grippy steering wheel, a tilt column, a Hurst shifter, and a full set of gauges - including the large AutoMeter Pro-Comp speedo and tach. There are nice details, like the flag-style bikini top to keep the sunshine off your shoulders, and there's an Army ammo box in the rear you can use for secure storage. Plus, a vehicle like this is meant for fun. So there's a Bluetooth-enabled stereo that connects to marine-grade speakers mounted on the roll bar.


Under the hood is a big upgrade in power. Ford's 351 cubic-inch V8 is double the cylinders and nearly three times the size of the Willys Go-Devil motor. Not only do you have a larger displacement, but also this motor inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power as headers feed the dual exhaust. So you know this one has the extra muscle to make the most out of its go-anywhere 4x4 attitude. There are even the right supporting components, like Ford Racing plug wires, an MSD coil, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. As you look underneath, you can see why this has a Ford V8, because it's also sitting on the Bronco's chassis with desirable coil spring suspension. You're going to see all the right upgrades under there, like a Dana 20 two-speed 4x4 transfer case, Dana 44 axles with Detroit Locker diffs, Rancho shocks, and Cooper Discoverer tires. There are even newer bushings, a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes for easy all-around driving.


This custom Jeep is a touch of nostalgia and a ton of modern rugged appeal. So if you're looking for the coolest 4x4 out there, call today!
