Description for Willys Original Overlander 1959

The Original Overlander Northwoods Edition
Built by MaxBilt Offroad in Eau Claire, WI
The idea behind this build was to give some old iron a new lease on life. This Willys needed to feel at home on the back country forest roads, two lane highways, tough mountain passes, and of course navigate this countries interstates with ease. A 1998 Jeep Cherokee and a 1949 Willys Overland would give us what we need. The Drive line consists of a Jeep 4.0 Litre engine, an AW4 automatic transmission, AWD 242 Transfeer case, Chrysler 8.25 rear axle, and a Dana 30 Hi pinion front axle. Modern suspension and steering was fabricated underneath to provide a safe, stable feel on the road. The interior, though it looks much like it may have back in the day, also features some modern conveniences.
  • Cruise control- for added driving comfort
  • radio- to jam out whilecruising
  • AC, modern HVAC system was built to offer added driving comfort
  • Memory foam seats covered in custom waxed canvasupholstery is the perfect match of comfort anddurability
  • Original column shift modified to operate theautomatic transmission
  • Original gauge cluster reworked and rebuilt to operate under 12 volts
  • Custom Oak doorpanels, new oak floor runners, and oak headliner supports
  • Burlap plaid headliner
  • floor mounted starter switch
  • Custom wiring harness
  • Custom Northwoods Edition door panels with antler door poppers
  • Antler coathooks in the rear
  • Canvasfoxwing unrolls from the side to provide shade
  • Power Steering
  • Power Brakes
This was a featured vehicle in the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas, our shop was proud to build this and will be sad to see it go!
