For Sale: 1947 Willys Jeep Wagon in Brentwood, California

Vehicle Description

This 1947 Willys was modified under prior ownership and fitted with a 413ci V8 linked with a three-speed automatic transmission and a Currie 9″ rear axle with a limited-slip differential. The wagon is finished in black over tan and brown vinyl upholstery and features a chopped roof, a louvered hood, airbrushed woodgrain paneling, a torsion bar front suspension, power steering, power-assisted front disc brakes, 20″ Eagle alloy wheels, an Edelbrock intake manifold, a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Flow Master dual exhaust system, AutoMeter instrumentation, and a JVC CD stereo. The vehicle was acquired by the seller in 2023, and subsequent work consisted of replacing two tires. This modified Willys wagon is now offered with a clean California title in the name of the seller’s trust.

The vehicle was repainted in black with airbrushed faux wood paneling under prior ownership. Details include a louvered hood, a chopped roof, a two-piece windshield, chrome bumpers, and polished dual exhaust finishers. The rear side windows are etched with custom Willys script. Paint cracks and blemishes are shown up close in the gallery.

Eagle 20″ alloy wheels are mounted with Laufenn S FIT AS tires up front and Nitto NT555 Extreme ZR rubber out back. The suspension utilizes Chrysler-sourced torsion bars up front, a leaf spring rear suspension, and power-assisted steering. Braking is handled by power-assisted front discs and rear drums.

The cabin features bolstered front bucket seats trimmed in tan and brown vinyl upholstery joined by a color-coordinated dashboard, door panels, and cargo side panels. Equipment includes custom embroidered “W” logos on the seat backs, black carpeting, lap belts, aluminum pedals, aftermarket speakers, and a JVC CD stereo.

The leather-wrapped billet steering wheel is mounted to a tilting column and sits ahead of AutoMeter instrumentation. The six-digit odometer shows 28k miles, approximately 1,200 of which have been added under current ownership.

The 413ci Chrysler V8 was installed under prior ownership and features an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a polished alternator, Mopar Performance valve covers, and billet pulleys. The aluminum radiator is accompanied by an electric cooling fan. An oil change was performed in October 2023.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission and a Currie 9″ rear axle with a limited-slip differential. A dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers has been fitted.

A label affixed to the door jamb displays the sequence 54167110055, which corresponds with the VIN listed on the California title.
