Nice old truck, minimal rust. Good running inline 6 gas engine. PTO driven pump for backhoe. The truck is 4wd but is missing the front drive shaft.
The brakes do not work. 16" bucket. The backhoe do work good some time and is weak others, could possibly need the pump rebuilt or maybe to old lines replaced (possible restriction). Good tires.
Asking $4,200.00

Pretty neat. Is that really a Willys truck. It's a shame if it is. My grandfather had a dealership for those way back in the 50's. It's probably more valuable as a collectors item than a BH.

That's a 1961 or earlier (probably earlier) Willy's. I had a 1962 which was the first year for the newer "Jeep Cherokee" looking style. Built like a tank!

Backhoe is disproportionate

Very hard to tell what year it is from the picture. It has the large back window and a split front windshield. That probably places it in the late 60's. I have a Willy's pickup with a '60 cab on it and it is set-up the same way. '64 was the last year for this style Pick-up. There were a few made and they have the OHV 230 6 cyl. as well as the '63's. The Wagoneer first came out in '63 I think. The pick-ups were a year or two behind.
