The classic Willys truck, released 65 years ago, has undergone a thorough modernization. This car can be bought.

The Willys jeep came to America from Canada. These brutal off-road vehicles are called the ancestors of modern jeeps. It’s hard to argue with that. The copy we are talking about today is interesting in that, not without the help of tuners, he managed to combine all the best from a classic truck and the fruits of modern engineering.

During its long life, the car managed to drive only 42,000 kilometers. A feature that sets this Willys apart from its peers is the chassis and drivetrain from the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited SUV. He shared a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with Willys, which was boosted by a RIPP supercharger. The drive is, of course, full. 5-speed manual transmission and a 2-speed transfer case are responsible for power transmission.

Also from Wrangler, the pickup got door handles, mirrors, etc. The car is shod with 17-inch wheels with 35-inch tires.

The guys from Cascade Vans and Interiors of Calgary worked on the car interior. The interior was decorated with shabby leather in two shades – brown and black.

Earlier it became known that Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator cars got a new multimedia system. Note that such an infotainment complex retained all the capabilities of the standard system, while receiving certain improvements.
