#AAAWillysWrecker #sema2016

Paul Barry, of Willys America put this homage to 1950s auto wrecking together. With some period-correct parts, some reproduction, and a lot of character, it certainly was a show stopper.

1949 Jeep Overland Expedition Rig



The original 4x4 camping machine, the Max-Bilt boys wasted no time dragging this rust-belt field find into their shop and, with the help of a donor XJ Jeep Cherokee, turned it into an insane daily driver and comfy cruiser.

Underneath lies the factory Cherokee high-pinion Dana 30 front and Chrysler 8.25 rear, factory 3.55s and all. Under the hood, the H.O. 4.0L inline-six was treated to a pared-down XJ wiring harness and the throttle body was topped with the original (albeit modified) 1949 air cleaner.

The factory column shifter was made to toggle the gears in the XJ’s AW4 four-speed auto and the NP242 part/full-time T-case will make winter road driving a breeze. The 30x9.50-15 Pitbull tires are well behaved and with the XJ’s power steering and brakes, pose no problem to stopping or turning.





The body is just as found. Well, there’s some reinforcements here and new glass all around…but it hasn’t been artificially patina’d or monkeyed with in any way. Some genuine barn-find license plates, a sharp and dangerous logging saw, and a repop “Stop” scripted taillight round out the exterior trinket highlights.

Inside, the factory seats have been refoamed and recovered in Grumpy Old Man plaid. They’re sublimely comfortable…trust us. A repop steering wheel, plaid headliner, and stained wood trim throughout round out the interior.
