Abandoned Willys Jeep Truck

I can't believe it. This Willys truck has sat abandoned for so many years that a tree grew up through the engine bay and eventually died of old age.

He probably turned down multiple offers to buy it because he was "going to rebuild it someday".

Still some good parts there. The bed and the rear fenders are quite desirable.

Poor Willys. I agree that some of the parts can be used.

Exactly! I hate those idiots and they are all over the US. I used to deliver propane gas and a man who lived in a single wide trailer in central FL. had an original AAR barracuda in his back yard..wouldn't sell it for nuthin! He's gonna fix it up some day.. Some day came, he passed away and the county took the property and car for taxes due...

Why should someone sell his property because you think you want it or deserve it more than him?

So they did not want to sell and your mad because of it? It is theirs to do with what they want, go find one that is for sale.

If the owner had gotten a good enough offer, he would have sold it.
I have been turning down $2K for my Impala for years.

It's looked like that since the mid 80's, the tree was well established then. I asked if it was for sale and was told NO in terms so strong that 30+ years later I'll be d**ned if I'll ever ask again.
