View Full Version : 1951 Willys truck

06-28-2013, 12:10 AM
I own this 1951 Willys truck, which I have been restoring for some years now. It came from the Civil defence in Denmark, and has not been on the road since 1973.
Here is a picture from a museum, where you see the special built bed on the back. The truck is quite rare in Denmark, in fact I have never seen one on the road.
My plan is to bring it back to civil version. As the bed is missing, I need to build it myself. Itīs unlikely that I can find an old one around here.
Here are pictures from when I bought it and some states during the restoration.

Hi steffen,
i too have a 1951 willys pickup . It is a standard model. It was the" willys of the week #121" .i am doing alot of improvements as well. I bought a 1948 willys parts truck with a near perfect bed on it . It came with a ton of new parts still in boxes.
My grandson dylan and i are working on it together . We are having a great time doing right by the old truck. The truck and i are the same age.
Keep up the great restoration job, bernie.
