For Sale: 1956 Willys Jeep in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The Jeeps may have won the war, but this 1956 Willys Jeep is ready for a different kind of battle. With those awesomely wide tires and a carefree attitude, it's hard not to think about all the fun ways to attack the outdoors.

A CJ3 is the right vehicle for this kind of fun. They share plenty of the style and components with the military Jeeps, but Willys also redeveloped the rig so that it could accept more jobs, including farm equipment. That seems right on one that's modified with tractor tires. There's a nice look from the red and black mix, but the complete package is the opposite of fancy because this is built for fun. After all, there's a (soda) bottle opener on the rear! And you'll even appreciate details like the side steps, front tow hooks, and rear trailer ball attachment.

The interior is a proper Jeep simple affair, right down to the steel steering wheel and column shift for the three-speed. The only upgrades you're likely to spot are the ones that make this more functional. The vinyl seat covers and liner paint on the floor are about robustness. And the oil and power gauges under the dash give you the essential info.

The 134 cubic-inch Go Devil motor is a true wonder of robust simplicity. It makes for a hardy torque master of a motor. And the engine bay is exceptionally clean so that you can see nice components like the newer battery and aluminum radiator. Part of the simplicity is also two-wheel drive only for an easier and lighter setup. Since the width of those tractor tires is more than triple the size of the skinny factory CJs, and the grooves here are made for moving the earth, we double you miss any 4x4 equipment.

Willys machines are robust and easy, so it wouldn't take much for you to return this one to a more pure vintage state. But we bet that's not what you're thinking about. Instead, you're picturing all the mud parks on back trails that will be much more fun with a classic Jeep that was made to dig in deep and slog through it all. So if you're looking for genuine vintage fun, this is the one. Call now!
