These are pictures of my 1956 Willys Jeep. I bought two Willys Jeeps, a 56 and a 61. I am currently restoring it a little at a time. Right now it is road worthy. There is no major body rot or dents. It keeps me busy. When I originally brought them home I was told that the engine in this, the 56 needed a timing chain. I got the chain and put it in, but never got it running. I put the engine from the 61 in and ran it till just last month. It developed a knock from the lower bearings being warn. I finally was able to get the timing chain in correctly from the help of a gentleman that has owned a 54 since new! He had a 56 service manual, like a Chiltons but different. Anyway the 56 now has it's original engine back in and is running like a top!
