Description:

1956 Willys 439

Willys 1956 dj-3a with title. ( I don't know why it says willys 439)

This Willys started life as a 2wd. Prior owner cut out firewall and welded in a firewall from a 4wd partially.
Front and rear axles are both from a 4wd M38. (I tried to show pictures)

Front and rear axle/diffs are complete. It rolls really well. This is a roller. No engine, transmission, or transfer case. I never had them.

I have owned this for 5 years and still have not gotten around to fully restoring it. I am slowly doing work to it though.
I repaired and reinstalled the original front bumper recently. The bumper is painted in primer. The rear bumper is new and is painted in primer as well.

I had the only couple major rust spots repaired when I bought it. Numerous coats and colors of paint are flaking all over frame and body. Frame is in great shape with no rust rot and the frame is straight. Floors appear to be solid.

Front Seats Frames are in good condition but they need to be recovered, rear seat looks to be home made. I am not sure if the legs that attach the seats to the body are original.

Clutch pad and linkages are installed and complete. Brake pad, cup rod, and master cylinder are all installed. Most of the brake line are still run through body. The fuel lines are run, but their is no gas tank. (never had it) Throttle pedal and the linkage is all there (not installed), but in picture of the parts. The original wiring harness is still in the vehicle and it appears that most of the connections are still intact. Parking brake handle works, but it needs a new cable. Comes with both drive shafts and the remaining clutch parts that connect to the tranny, (in pictures in parts and attached to frame.) The steering linkage is complete and correct, I repaired the steering and drag link recently. Steering bell-crank needs two new bearings, 7/8ths shaft. The steering components are painted in primer.

The rims are 16" rims. Tires hold air to move it around, however, the front left tire (drivers side), definitely needs to be replaced, it will only hold air for about 2 hours. Comes with the spare tire carrier.

Transmission cover and tranny stick shift come with this as well. One of the pictures is all of the extra parts I received when I bought this. The new parts are in the pictures as well.

Comes with new in boxes: dash headlight switch, some new brake lines, horn contact sensor.

Windshield moves to both positions with ease, glass is cracked. The lights on the vehicle are intact. Glass covers on front turn signals appear to be original

Was in a barn for 25 years prior to me owning it. I've had it in a garage for 5 years.
