    MYSTERY Willys Pickup spotted in Encinitas, CA

    I spotted this pickup when I was on vacation last summer. I dont know why I waited to post it, it seems like a great topic of discussion and I would love to hear from the owner.



    The vanity plate says 55 but we know better.

    My fiance and I were visiting my cousin in Encinitas in August 2015 and when we stumbled upon a cruise in on the main street I had to have a look around. There are ALOT of resto mod broncos in so-cal, I saw lots full of them for sale, Ford Rancheros and any kind of woody wagon are also popular, I saw a really cool Morris woody wagon. And of course VW buses are everywhere and Porsches are as common as Camrys. This was probably the only Willys I saw on that trip, I did see a classic Crosley that was recently restored - I was quite envious as a Cincinnati native (Crosley is the only "popular" brand we have a claim to even though most production was in Indiana I believe)

    Haven't seen those rear fender braces like that before. Obviously doesn't have a lot of uptravel to hit those.
