As they say, the devil is in the details, and it’s not every day you see such attention paid to every last area of a restoration like with this 1961 Willys Pickup. Already the Pickup has a unique look that shares some styling with the Jeep, plus some original touches you don’t get anywhere else. It’s a classy way to show up to any event, all thanks to Hollywood Motors.
A burgundy paint job contrasts with white lower panels and the roof. Plenty of tasteful chrome details grace the exterior, including the bumpers, headlight bezels, crossmembers on the grille, hood latches, taillight bezels, exhaust finisher, tailgate hinges, etc. Steel wheels painted white and chrome hubs are a tasteful addition. Beautiful oak side steps and bed strips add a touch of craftsmanship to this ride. This truck is of real showroom quality, thanks to the astoundingly detailed restoration work performed on it, making this Willys Pickup a fierce contender for best of show.
Under that beautiful hood is a 225 Buick V6 engine mated to a three-speed manual transmission, so you enjoy an ideal level of control. Four wheel drive is functional, making it that much more utilitarian and downright cool. The tires are new, so you can enjoy a lot of life out of them, while the wheels and hubs are in great condition. Just in case, a fifth wheel with a tire and a side mount are included. Just as important, this Pickup runs smoothly, so you can go cruising or even hit the open road if you’re interested in participating in some classic rallies.
You might associate Willys with the famous Jeep CJ, but the automaker did produce a fair amount of trucks. The Pickup is quite the unique example, thanks to distinct styling that really turns heads, making it a favorite at quite a few shows.
