Need cash for Harley motor... So, life is about sacrifices. Willys for new motor... Sure, if I was Jay Leno, just keep everything and make it all sweet! I share his passion, but don't have his income... Lol!!!

This Willys was built in Sacramento (converted) by Central 4 wheel drive. Lived in Tennesee for many years until the guy I bought it from brought it to Bend, OR. He let it rot in his backyard for the last ten years or more until I answered a cracklist ad for a dirt bike, bought the bike and then I was like: "Whadaya doing with the Willys?" The rest is history and it is in the shed! 1955 is the first year of the CJ5A body style and was branded "Willys" in 1955, then "Jeep" from 1956 on up. The CJ5 is pretty much the same 1955 through like 1978ish???
