I should know this one but forget the owner from Texas. Look like he is running altered with no front clip
Prock & Howell
This 36 pickup with 33 steel front end just sold asking price was $12,500
I guess that's in line with the new replica A and deuce bodies. Where ya gonna find another one?
Ohio George Montgomery
I always liked the stock top version better.
Bad decisions make good stories.
I bought the Pat Ertel bio book on Ohio George at the Calif Hot Rod Reunion this weekend. Very good book, tells a lot about George I didn't know. Like that he worked for the Feds when they were exploding nukes in the Arizona desert in the 50s and he would watch the explosion then go into ground zero in a lead suit to collect data. He is checked for radiation poisoning regularly to this day.
A local guy Tom Slatery built this Willys and I heard he has health issues and sold it. Tom would put on a cruise in Port Ewen every Friday night out of his own pocket. Supported and honored the veterans also. Get well Tom.
I also think Willys and Anglias look better unchopped. They're so cute and tiny as is.
You got that right. Mine is full height and I still hit my head on the oak x-member that is just above my head in the roof. And NEVER put diseased, scummy, scabby, Anglias in the same sentence. With Willys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wowsers willys36. My '33 ('36) shares the same stable as my '49 brand "A" and my son's '48 brand "A". So far, they're getting along good together.
I guess I better not post pics of the brand "A"s on this thread.
All of them are unchopped by the way.

Saw this on the Vintage pictures thread.
Australian 35-36 from the State of Victoria. Only the front sheet metal and mechanicals are the same. Not the wipers are on the cowl. JW
Just saw this on "vintage shots from days gone by" very interesting. Only sedan I've seen chopped was the "james gang" Willys sedan
You bet your bippie it is.
