    Vintage Willys pictures

    Hi all,

    Kevin and a few others suggested posting old Willys pictures in a thread, so here are a few to get this one started. Please feel free to add your own.

    Here are one from 1964 of my Grandpa and his 1955 Wagon going to get Christmas trees in rural southeastern Humboldt County (Northern Coastal California):



    Here are two more of similar trips in 1967:






    Here are a few of my Grandpa, the 1955 Wagon, and my Dad and his Boy Scout buddies going sledding in the same general area:






    Here are several of Grandpa's 1955 Wagon doing summertime work up at the cabin:






    Here are some of the Willys coming back from fishing with my Dad and Grandpa:


    And here's an one of a Willys truck (of unknown ownership) at a logging site somewhere in Humboldt County. My Grandpa drove logging trucks after WWII; I found this one in his records:

    Scramboleer,

    Those are some cool pictures, brotherman.

    I've already posted my picture in another place or two on this forum but I'll join the party. The picture of a picture is of me and my sister on my dad's '57 FC-150 in 1969 in Votaw, Texas. The other day I asked him what ever happened to the FC and he said that he traded it for a tractor. That place was pretty special way back then (I haven't been there in decades). My dad had three fields with various crops and 40 someodd acres of piney woods that adjoined a huge chunk of what we call out west, State Land. Although we never saw the cat we saw "panther" tracks on the property. For those of you who don't know where Votaw, Texas is (which I figure is could be pretty much everyone on here), that previous sentence means a Mountain Lion living within 90 miles of Houston. My dad still hears about occasional sightings although he now lives a bit more NW of there near Livingston.

    I'm looking forward to following this thread.

    Michael

    This is a great thread! Here are the 2 I have of my grandfathers ol Willys. Not sure what year it was. These would have been taken in the Charleston, WV area in the 60's.

    Charleston, WV? I was about 80 miles south near Princeton - actually Kellysville - but Princeton will show up on a map. :lol:

    Anyway, here are my kids around 1992 ready for a Halloween costume party at the local school. My son was a hobo & daughter a grandfather clock. She won something as I recall.

    And here are a couple from a year or two earlier when I brought home the power pole I used for our electricity. I strapped the pole down to a trailer I built from a Ford van chassis and used it for the tongue:

    I made this towbar to fit the Willys, but this is how I used it at the other end:

    And here it is with the portable sawmill I built and used a lot:
