Hi Guys and Gals,
My name is Paul Adams and I've owned 4 Willys Wagons. Currently I still Have three. I have a 1956 driver, 49 motor runs but non driver and a 51 parts car.
My 56 is all original, L226, 6volt. It's taken 2yrs to find all the pieces but it's complete now. I've been working from the inside out. Powder coated the seat frames, window trim, re-upolstered the seats, started re-wiring the motor and instuments. Just a little at a time. I needed a couple of pieces to finish off the 56, hence the other two. The old guy that had them wouldn't piece them out so I had to purchase them both! The 49 has overdrive I'm taking out to put on the 56 then I'll put them up for sale***

I live in Rifle Colo.
Single father of two boys 9&12

I visit Lewiston ID every year to visit my Mom and Sister.
I've seen a couple wagons in Lewiston but couldn't find the owners!

I'll send pics when I figure out how---Till then I'll be working on one of these three.

Paul-

Your boys are almost the same ages as my two boys... They love tinkering under the hood with me, and it's great father/son time for us. My oldest has started thinking that a Willys truck would be a great first car... Might have to expand the website in a couple of years!

If you have your pictures on your computer, posting them to the site is fairly easy... There's a thread on posting pictures in the General Discussion area with details. If you can't figure it out, e-mail them to me and I'll put them up for you.

Pete
