Up for auction is my 1947 Willys. Wife says she wants her garage back. Bought this in 2009 but lost my job and new one didn't allow me the time to continue work. Last 6 years it's been on jackstands in my garage collecting dust. Stripped it down to the frame sent body to be sandblasted. Cleaned up frame than Coated frame and underside of body and interior with Herculiner. Car was originally from Southern California so had very little rust. All sheetmetal was in good shape except under the left tail light where it was rusted out and the right fender support needed to be replaced. Also had a rusted out place on the floor brace on the  drivers side I had to patch.

 New Parts
 All new gauges except speedo and tach.
 All new brakelines. wheel cylinders and master cylinder.
Steering column
Jensen Marine am/fm disc player w/remote
Shocks
LED tail lights
Speakers (2)
Others that I can not remember right now but will include later.

Previous owner had upgraded to Saginaw steering gear and drum brakes. I used all stainless steel nuts and bolts on outside and most everywhere else.
Drivetrain is all original with Overdrive except the engine which I was told when I bought it was a recently installed small block Chevy crate engine.
 The Title is clear not salvage my guess is the VIN was issued by California on a build.
Mileage is unknown. I just entered what shows on the speedometer that comes with it.
Have most of the parts needed to complete including windshield and new seals.

Now for the bad.
  The engine has not been started since I drove it into the garage. The auto choke on the carb has been gutted. The wiring needs to be completed. Brakes have not had any brake fluid in the lines yet and I believe I have connected an auxiliary hydraulic brake backwards. Steering column and shaft need to be finished. Either replace the joint or install a bearing on the shaft. I have a new knuckle but right now I've got a double knuckle so I couls steer it out of the garage. All the lug nuts are left hand.

  PLEASE ask if you have any questions or concerns. Will post more pictures of the work when I can find them.
