1933 - 36 WILLYS 77 PHOTOS "WANTED'!

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has any 1933 - 1936 Willys Model 77 photographs up in the attic; or in a shoebox, under the stairs? If possible, would you post them here, or email them to me? I would very much appreciate any that you could forward; especially with a "bit of history."

Yes, STONE STOCK! Those are the best kind; any stone stock 1937 HD 45s left out there? Thought they were all turned into "INDIANS"? (or maybe Vespas?) I'll open this up to include 1937 - 1942 stone stock? WILLYS, as well!

I don't think they were called Model 77s for the 1937-41s, but here's a 1941 that has not only escaped the chop shop, but also the restoration shop. It's all original, and was shown in the HPOF (Historical Preservation of Original Features) class at Hershey this year.

I didn't know if you were looking for factory original, or photos of when they were new, or what.

Also, if you can find a copy of the March 1985 issue of Car Collector magazine, there is a really good story on the Model 77 with great color photography of a beautifully restored 1936 Model 77 four-door sedan.

Hi West:

Mahalo for the reply! Looking for any basically stock Willys. If the truck, car or Panel Delivery hasn't been significantly "modified", I guess I'd be interested. It can be an old photo of a "new" automobile; or a recent photo of anything Willys - and anything in between! Old Dealership photos also "accepted"! Could you send a larger image of the Pickup, West?

Any interest in the Duvall OHV head for the Willys four?
1937hd45 - I sent you a PM; but if you could get me some info on the Duvall OHV conversion, with some photos, that would be great! Mahalo!

I have been meaning to snap a few for you. This is a 1933 Willys model 77. I am not that familiar with the car. It is hard to find anything about it online. Can anyone tell me how rare it is? Maybe what one in this condition would sell for?

This is one of the best model 77s you will ever see but there was one offered for sale in these forums last week from Uruguay; Galeria something.

I have been collecting ORIGINAL pre WWII Willys photos for years. I owned 5 or 6 of them back in the 1960's and drove them as everyday transportation. Most all of my photos were taken in the 1930's or early '40's when the cars were new or near new. Far too many to post here.

Finally found some "Stone Stock" Photos! Kind of nice to see them in their Original Glory! But if you find any more pictures, please post them or email them to me! MAHALO!

Interesting that in 1941 the "redesigned" Willys AMERICAR used the quarter window behind the door like this Aussie 1939 Overland did. I kind of prefer the 1937 - 1940 body without the quarter window. Diversity is good. W O K R ~ a GREAT Club and I am a member. Original Factory Draings available for many of the WILLYS OVERLAND KNIGHT autos and trucks!

Amazing just because it is deemed to be "DESIRABLE" what this junk brings to the seller! There isn't anything "solid" on the whole car. And I just love the word "PATINA"!!! You get to charge more for rust!!! Thanks for the post, Dave.

considering that is a car that sat outside for 40 years or more, it IS in "solid" condition IMHO

compare this to some of the stuff that comes from Ohio or PA or the swamps down south.

MANY cars 40-50 years newer are in worse condition rust wise than this car

I can vaguely remember a number of 1930s Willys around Melbourne (Australia) in the late 1940 and early 50s. I think that many donated their engines to "Midget" race cars used for oval (cinder) track racing. Usually run at night under lights. Just don't stand near the bends or you go home covered in dirt.

This picture was posted on http:// the old motor.com In June. Dig that super rare panel

Middletown-NY1.jpg

This is the second photo we have showing Middletown, New York. On the corner is the Whelan Drug Co. which appears to be an old fashioned drug store with a luncheonette along with a soda fountain. Out front is a rare Willys panel truck, an unknown brand of a bus and possibly a 1935 Chevrolet coupe approaching the corner.
