1961 Willys Jeep 4x4 station wagon restoration project in progress
This is an update on the restoration progress on my 1961 Willys wagon. Here
I just got done installing a refurbished 2bbl intake manifold off of a
Kaiser with the 226, refurbishing the Exhaust manifold and studs, installing a new
fuel line, installing new Exhaust, and
replacing the oil pan gasket and rope rear main seal. The current
carburetor is a Holley AA-1 (Holley 94 variant). I thought it was burning
oil, but after running it more afterwards it doesn't seem to be burning
much oil. Who the heck knows? I need to replace the plugs and check the
points as it's been sitting a while without being run for an extended
period of time.

Recently, when I was at a friends place, and he started and drove his '52
Jeep pick up. It didn't have any brakes, so a road test was out of the
question. Just after this clip was taken I got to drive this Jeep. It was
running very rough, and after some carburetor tuning it ran better, but
still not great. We now think the timings off.

"Describes the designing of the Jeep to meet military needs of being
compact, light weight and maneuverable over rough terrain."
Jeep is an automobile marque of Chrysler (itself a subsidiary of Fiat). The
first Willys Jeeps were produced in 1941 with the first civilian models in
1945, making it the oldest off-road vehicle and sport utility vehicle (SUV)
brand. It inspired a number of other light utility vehicles, such as the
Land Rover which is the second oldest 4-wheel-drive brand. The original
Jeep vehicle that first appeared as the prototype Bantam BRC became the
primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Army and Allies
during World War II, as well as the postwar period. Many Jeep variants
serving similar military and civilian roles have since been created in
Bantam Reconnaissance Car
When it became obvious that the United States was eventually going to
become involved in the war raging in Europe, the U.S. Army contacted 135
companies asking for working prototypes of a four-wheel-drive
reconnaissance car. Only two companies responded to the request, The
American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland. The Army had set what
seemed like an impossible deadline of 49 days to supply a working
prototype. Willys asked for more time but were refused. The bankrupt
American Bantam Car Company had no engineering staff left on the payroll
and brought in Karl Probst, a talented freelance designer from Detroit.
After turning down an initial request from Bantam, Probst accepted the job
after being asked again by the Army, and initially working without salary,
went to work July 17, 1940.
Probst completely laid out plans for the Bantam prototype, known as the BRC
or Bantam Reconnaissane Car, in two days, and the next day estimated the
total cost of the vehicle. On July 22, Bantam's bid was submitted, complete
with blueprints. Much of the vehicle had to be assembled from existing
off-the-shelf automotive parts, and the custom four-wheel drivetrain
components were supplied by Spicer. The hand-built prototype was completed
in Butler, Pennsylvania, and driven to Camp Holabird, Maryland, for
testing by the Army on 21 September 1940. The vehicle met the Army's
criteria, but its engine did not meet the Army's torque requirements.
Ford Pygmy and Willys MB
The Army felt that the Bantam company was too small to supply the number of
vehicles it needed, so it supplied the Bantam design to Willys and Ford who
were encouraged to make their own changes and modifications. The resulting
Ford "Pygmy" and Willys "Quad" prototypes looked very similar to the Bantam
BRC (Bantam Reconnaissance Car) prototype and Spicer supplied very similar
four-wheel drivetrain components to all three manufacturers.
Fifteen hundred of each of the three models were built and extensively
field-tested. Willys-Overland's chief engineer Delmar "Barney" Roos made
design changes to meet a revised weight specification (a maximum of 1,275
lb (578 kg) including oil and water). He was thus able to use the powerful
but comparatively heavy Willys "Go Devil" engine, and win the initial
production contract. The Willys version of the car would become the
standardized jeep design, designated the model MB and was built at their
plant in Toledo, Ohio. The familiar pressed metal Jeep grille was actually
a Ford design feature and incorporated into the final design by the Army.
Since the War Department required a large number of vehicles to be
manufactured in a relatively short time, Willys-Overland granted the United
States Government a non-exclusive license to allow another company to
manufacture vehicles using Willys' specifications. The Army chose Ford as
the second supplier, but building Jeeps to the Willys' design. Willys
supplied Ford with a complete set of plans and specifications. American
Bantam, the creators of the first Jeep, spent the rest of the war building
heavy-duty trailers for the Army....
