This site is primarily about the use of Willys Jeeps at our home in upstate NY. The two Photos below show my 1953 CJ3B before and after painting around 1978 and 1980
My CJ3B

CJ3B CJ2A Workinwillys Willys Guys
My interest in the WILLYS OVERLAND JEEP began as a small boy hunting racoon in upstate NY with my Dad and brothers. We spent many nights following the barking dogs around the area in an old CJ3B that belonged to a friend of dads. At 16 I purchased that Jeep and began restoring it. Three years later it made it on the road. It took me back and forth to work for several years until it was finally retired to WORK JEEP status. It is still WORKIN to keep the driveway clear, haul firewood and haul the women out of the ditch. It's no longer pretty, it's very rough on the edges but maybe some day .....

My 46 CJ2A #15992 Column shift is probabley the only Willys I have that will ever be restored to a polisher. It too hauls fire wood and the occasional "non trophy or antlerless" White Tail off the hill. It no longer sees the salt of winter, separated from it's snow plow, it occasionally buzzes wood with it's PTO. It is mainly my wheelbarrow and summer fun ride.

My 65 J200, once restored to a polisher, is now setting in the field with a spun bearing (79 Chevy V6). It served me several years on the road while in the divorced poor boy club. I wish I had time to put the 225 Buick back in and at least use it as the wood truck again.

I am back workin on a 51 basket case I aquired in 1993. It will replace the 3B's plowing roll and free up the 2A for restoration, Hopefully. It will be a mechanically sound WORKIN WILLYS but its previous owner abused it with drill and pop rivet.

Over the years my family and I have derived more fun from our WILLYS Jeeps than I ever imagined.
