View Full Version : 1950 willys hot rod

I have a 1950 jeep willys with a 1965 ford 289 about 325 hp. I'm 13 years old and my grandpa originally built it in the 1980's and he broke the front driveshaft at georgetown ice racing 20 years ago. So its been sitting for 15 years. And he got to old to work on it so he gave it to me. And me and my dad have worked on it for the past year. its almost running but not yet. might need some questions later so i sighned up.

g`day .
welcom to the willys forum. its pretty new so still a bit slow at times.

your grandpa`s old willys sounds like a fun machine. "ice racing" now thats something we dont have here in australia. sounds interesting. do you have any photos of your car?

great to hear you and your dad are working on it together to get it going again after being in the familly for so long. a 325hp windsor should really liven up the old girl.
