Got my Willy! (new pix)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Just won this Wild Willy and it appears to be in really good condition. I have never owned one and I wanted your opinion. Do you guys see anything in the pics that will need attention when I finally receive it? Thanks!

The Wild Willy 'Mk1' is a great little truck and that looks like a really nice one. It doesn't look like it's been used much, if at all.

Check the tyres, they're 30+ years old and can get dry and cracked (though the tyres on yours look good) and the front grille which is delicate and can break around the winch mounting points.

Above all, enjoy it! ;)

Ah, I thought by the thread title this was going to be a caption competition... ;o)

Showing off again, are you, viperchief? ;) Still remember that silly bargain on the Willy's Wheeler...

No way to tell for sure if it needs work, since I assume no upper chassis pictures were present. However, from here everything appears in good order! I wish I was so certain about my Willy...

Most people who play with their Willy in public, get arrested.:-)

Nice one, don't break it.

Just received my Willy today! It is in great shape! Glad to see the grill is intact along with the winch. The part that keeps the windshield up against the roll bar is broken ( I can live with that). Very happy with this purchase!

Very nice! I was gonna say, like NWarty pointed out, Willy is even sporting the visor. :) Cool.
