Bolens 1050 Pushing '46 Willys into creek
This was right after i first got the willys. we pushed it down the woods,
and into the new area, then pulled it up the other side with tractors.
then we pushed it back in with the one 1050 drew is on in the vid. but
this was before we put the other engine in it. the one that ran. So this
was before we ever knew the thing would actually drive :)
1946 Willys Jeep Sparking Up An 'In-Dash' Fire
some kind of shorting out was happening here, which cut short drews fun
ride in the willys. we got the fire out pretty quick. but its not on
film. since then, none of the wiring has worked at all. but that hasn't
stopped me from getting the thing stuck.
SAS Willys jeep rebuild part 1
Restoration of a 1944 Willys MB jeep. The body tub was a rotten Hotchkiss
one, so a repro body tub was used. Chassis, axles, engine, gearbox, grill
and many little parts are genuine WW2. The Jeep is being built to represent
one used by 4 SAS as used behind the lines in Brittany, France. 1 and 2
SAS, were British, 3 and 4 SAS were French, and 5 SAS were from Belgium.
Many hours were spent studying original photographs to make an authentic
replica. The first 10 or so jeeps were modified in Scotland. 4 were
parachuted into France, the rest were brough in by glider. After Brittany
was mostly liberated, the SAS regrouped in Vannes for a refit. A convoy of
40 jeeps and Bedford trucks were driven from the UK via Normandy, and
modified by local garages to the individual crews requirements.
Consequently no 2 jeeps are identical. See my next videos as the

Getting started. Taking a 1992 Dodge 1 ton extended cab pickup. Lengthing
and widening front fenders. Building a new 3 inch wider nose piece. Cutting

WWII WILLYS Jeep on hill
took my 1944 WILLYS MB Jeep to work today and on my lunchbrake I took it
over to a dead end and trayed to get it over this very soft and step hill.
trayed for about 3 mines. all most made it but the ground was just too soft
to go up the hill. if my jeep had lockers tirers that where biger then 5"
wide I would have been able to get over it. anyway it was a lost of fun!
Jeep Willys with Tank Tracks
Bolt on tank tracks on a modified Jeep Willys powered by a Buick V6 engine.
The Tracks were manufactured by a company called "A. F. Wagner Industries
Inc." of concord California. They were made sometime during the mid 60s
and there was only 6 sets made and were apparently expensive and thus may
be the reason there were so few made. They are called "Wagner-Trac" and
were made specifically as a set of tank tracks for a jeep with a wheelbase
of 81 inches. The wheelbase is not adjustable so the wheelbase is critical
and just like a tank you would have to install turning brakes to drive the
Jeep because the steering is null and void as soon as you bolt them on.
They are all steel construction so were probably designed for offroad only.
