Description for Willys 1952

I FOUND THIS JEEP A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WITH THE INTENT TO KEEP IT. IT HAD BEEN SITTING FOR ABOUT 16 YEARS. IT IS A PRETTY SOLID OLD JEEP. WHAT YOU SEE IS MOSTLY THE ORIGINAL PAINT. I WAS TOLD IT A ONE OWNER AND THE GUY WAS 86 YEARS OLD.
I WILL GIVE YOU A LIST OF THE WORK THAT I HAVE DONE TO IT SO FAR. I HAVE INSTALLED A NEW FUEL TANK AND FUEL PUMP. I GIVEN IT A COMPLETE BRAKE JOB WITH ALL NEW LINE, HOSES, SHOES, WHEEL CYLINDERS AND A MASTER CYLINDER, PLUS A COUPLE OF NEW U-JOINTS. I PULLED THE FRONT AND REAR DIFFERENTIAL COVERS, CLEANED THE OLD GREASE OUT AND PUT PINIONS SEALS IN BOTH.
I ALSO HAD TO PUT REAR AXLE BEARINGS AND GREASE SEALS IN AS WELL. THE TRANSFER CASE FRONT INPUT BEARING SEALS AND THE REAR ALSO. THE FRONT AXLE ALSO GOT NEW KNUCKLE SEALS INSTALLED. I PUT IN A TEMPERATURE GAUGE, AN OIL FILTER CANISTER HOSE AND A RADIATOR HOSE. I ALSO INSTALLED A NEW WINDSHIELD SEAL AND GLASS. I HAD A RETIRED BODY MAN REPAIR THE RIGHT STEP, PART OF THE HAT CHANNEL, AND TAKE OUT A FEW DENTS HERE AND THERE. IT IS STILL A 6-VOLT SYSTEM WITH A NEW BATTERY. THE GENERATOR WAS REBUILT WITH A NEW REGULATOR AS WELL.
THE LIGHTS ARE NOT WORKING; I HAVE NOT HAD ANYTIME TO INVESTIGATE THIS FURTHER. THE SPEEDOMETER WORKS, BUT THERE IS NO CABLE.
WITH ALL THAT WORK DONE I GOT THE ENGINE RUNNING AND IT RUNS VERY SMOOTH ; BUT IT SMOKES. I WAS THINKING BECAUSE IT SAT SO MANY YEARS THAT THE RINGS ARE PROBABLY STUCK, SO I PULLED THE HEA, OIL PAN AND PISTONS. I HONED THE CYLINDERS AND INSTALLED NEW RINGS---HOWEVER IT STILL SMOKES---I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT IT PROBABLY NEEDS NEW VALVE GUIDES. I HAVE A LOT OF TIME AND NUMEROUSSMALL THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE, BUT NOT LISTED HERE.
THIS WILL BE A GREAT LITTLE JEEP FOR SOMEONE TO DRIVE AS IS. I HAVE TOO MANY PROJECTS TO GO ANY FURTHER ON THIS. THIS JEEP HAS CHARACTER AND ORIGINAL PATINA.
I DO HAVE A GOOD WISCONSIN TITLE SIGNED FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER. PLEASE CHECK ALL THE PICTURES OUT CAREFULLY AS THEY ARE PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. NOW IS THE TIME TO ASK QUESTIONS PRIOR TO BIDDING---NOT AFTER YOU ARE THE WINNING BIDDER AND PICKING IT UP --- SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY---NO TEXTS, I WILL NOT RESPOND TO THEM. 920-905-4096
