View Full Version : Looking for Specs

:confused: I've been looking everywhere for frontend specs for a 1958 willys truck. I'm thinking about buying it but the frontend is gone, so I figured I'd put a straight axle under it if I can find out it would work. I checked on a assembly like would go under a gasser but need the following spec info; frame rail to frame rail, center pin to center pin on springs, and outer hub to outer hub for overall width. I'd like to find this info out before I commit to buying the truck. Anyone out there able to help me out, I've got till Sunday 6/4/17 to let the guy know. Thanks

You could try Les at Doughertys Salvage: 218-349-3926, he has Willys Trucks in it and might be able to help.

I have a 53 Truck and I am going to pull my complete 4 wheel drive out completely and putting an 8.8 rear end and straight axle in the front. so I will be selling the whole drive train including motor, trans and transfer case drive shafts.
