    Yeah it's an all original,(minus the box, which I'm rebuilding) 1956 Willys. Original 6 volt, Warn O/D, vac wipers, 50 year old Western 6volt electric/hyro plow. I'm going to put an original Gar wood Dumpo matic body on it this spring.It will look like this again come spring. I also have a 1956 Willys wagon, and a 1953 pick up

    I see different times around Fredericton an old Willy's like yours and it has the old Fisher headgear on it but I have never seen a blade on it though.

    Provincial and municipal plows have just been called out, as the visibility has finally improved. Winds down to 70km/h. between 40-60cm( 16-24") of snow fell,I'm Unfortunately in the 60cm area. Plow dispatcher told me it will be hours before my road is touched. There is 3.5' on the flat, 6'drifts over 100' long

    It's suprisingly not to bad. I think the key is that is a 105 hp straight 6 with 4.88 gear ratios. Put it in low, set the throttle to about 1000rpm, and it pushes like a cat loader.
    No speed, All GRUNT!!wesportwesport

    When I get the dump body on it it should be even better:bluebounc

    A buddy of mine has the local road contract. He broke it out today with a 966 CAT with a 15' V blade. It has not let up yet. They (police) are asking poeple to stay off the roads until they can get 2 lanes open on each road:dizzy:

    Ya thats right Randy, It's me. The trailer is in Charlottetown now. A buddy of mine had it more than I did, so he finally got tired of driving out here to get it or return it... so he bought it. I still use it when ever I need to. Great set up ehhh?? He uses it to haul around a Kubota B21. How much snow did you guys get?? Listen who runs a puller out your way(around Brookvale) called Old yeller? Some one said he had an old Scout II. I'm looking for a Dana 44 front end from one.
