    I know ebay stuff is not welcomed here but Check out this Willys on E-bay! 290205704781, sorry I don't know how to link it here. can someone? He swears it's a true Willys and threatened to sue me if I told people different. I tried to warn a possible bidder. It looks to me like a 40-47 IH cab ith a glass Willys nose. Looks cool, but definately no Willys. You guys should let him know what he has:)

    yeah something dont look right about it
     
  3. I believe you are correct Rusty. The doors and w/s area pretty much tell the story. Gotta be something in the "Report" area to flag it for fraud. Need to have pictures of it and a real one to really tell.

    It not a 1940 Willys He can sue me if he wants. The 40 Willys has no cawl section, the hood is right up against the windshield.

    Here is a picture of a real one.

    The bad thing is It actually has a bid fir $15,000, does the high bidder know what it actually is? I guess if he don't now, he will someday.

    It defintly is "NOT" a willys cab, its done nice to fit the willys nose, but not a willys
    I am building one similar with a dodge cab.
    a willys does not have a cowl area, the hood goes all the way to the windshield and the doors are cut to fit the fenders

    heres the link:

    I personally don't have a problem with it, I asked him why it was advertised as a Willys since it was actually an IH cab, told himit was a cool ride, but a bit miss represented in the ad, and he sent me a page long e-mail saying it WAS a Willys and I have no Idea what I am talking about, and I tell any potential bidders otherwise he would file a complaint through ebay and possibly sue if I hendered a sale. I have several Willys' of my own. Including a 41 pickup.

    Anyone who has ever stuffed thier ass in a real Willys truck would be gratefull for the extra few inches of cowl the non-Willys has.

    Good lookin little truck, but a front clip does not a Willys make.

    I wonder what else he's lying about?
    Cool looking gasser, but I wouldn't deal with someone who was either stubborn or not being truthful.
    NO SALE!!!
     
  16. Did you read the initial post? He claims it is a Willys,and will sue if "trailer Ed' tells anyone otherwise! Clone still usually means,same brand of vehicle,just a recreation of an original.

    He may be the one being sued if the buyer find out it is not a willys. There is a section in Ebay motors that you can take action for a misrepresent item. I had to use it one time for a motorcycle I bought.

    I do believe your right, the "clone" is in reference to the 'gasser', not the Willys.
    It is a cool little truck no matter what..
    Hopefully those interested in buying it have some knowledge of the real thing so they themselves will notice.

    I'm doing something similar witha 48 F-1 cab and a glass 41 Willys nose, but if I sell it it I will tell what it started as. The Clone part I actually missed when reading it, ( my bad) but he assured me it IS A WILLYS. Cool truck, but he was kind of an ass to me, when confronted about it's origins.

    for what it is, whatever it is, it looks pretty good. it'd be a good way to build a "willys" without the astronomical price tag.

    Loks like a good build, lots of good stuff on it and in it, but glass nose $400-600, 40's IH cab free -$1000 tops, glass bed sides, $200-400 , cool little package, but loooooong ways from a Willys. I'd drive it, but I would not tell everone it is a willys, and look like an idiot. Kinda like having a street beast.

    I think it's pretty cool still. As already noted though I'd be really leery dealing with a guy like that.

    So many things look wrong with the ebay truck. The length of the front fenders, the radius of the wheel openings, the cowl that shouldn't be there, the shape of the window opening of the door etc.
    Overall, its weak in a lot of areas.

    Maybe this guy doesn't know that it isn't all Willys ?

    Well, I ain't buying it.
    But someone will. As long as its not a HAMBR !
