Here is a picture of my 53 Willys pickup. It is powered by a small block Chevy with a Turbo 400 tranny and a Ford 9" rearend. Saginaw steering and reversed front spring shackles are next. Then a Mustang II front end and another 2 or 3 inch drop. I am located in Elk Grove, CA (15 miles south of Sacramento).... I operate a small woodworking business, since my retirement from the fire service 5 1/2 years ago. The Willy's is a daily driver and work truck.
