We are changing the rules a bit for the Truck Nuts Book contest, announced in “Ask MrTruck Ep.4.“. We will publish all entries into this “Are you a Truck Nut?” contest over the course of the week, and then publish a poll to let all the readers decide who wins a copy of the Truck Nuts Book.
Third submission comes from Jared Cohen:
I figured my truck story is a little out of the ordinary, so I thought you might like to hear it. I have a 1948 Willys ‘Jeep’ Pickup that my father and I completely restored over 4 years and finished about a year ago. It was completely restored by us from paint and body work to rebuilding the drive train. It has its original 134 cubic inch 2.2 liter inline-4 making 63 hp and 105 ft•lbs of torque backed with a 3-speed manual transmission. It was made for farm use originally and does a great job carrying hay, produce, or even a few motorcycles and snowmobiles now. It is used for car shows and driven to work at least a couple times a week except in the Pennsylvania winters. Hope you guys enjoyed the story. Thank you.
The news of the Jeep “JT” pickup truck coming to market within the next several years, this is a wonderful look at the history of Willys and Jeep pickup trucks. Also, this is a great story about a father and son team doing the restoration. Thank you Jared!
Here is another Jeep pickup truck. This time, it’s a concept.
