Info on 1949 Willys 1 ton

Hey I found a 1949 Willys 1 ton on craigslist near me, but no pics. I can't seem to find too much info or pics on the internet. Anyone have one or have info/pics on them?

I found this pic online and emailed the guy. pretty neat looking. I wonder how it would look lowered like an old chevy/ford classic truck with a nice big engine and some chrome wheels. I dont really like how short the bed looks compared to the cab.

To my knowledge(could be wrong here), Willy's didn't make a one ton in 49. All the early heavy axles I've seen used a five lug wide bolt pattern. That being said, you might want to contact the seller for more info.

Yeh, in any of my Willys parts/repair books, there is no mention of a 1 ton pickup in the late 40s/50s/early 60s. I have seen some people that welded some wheels together to make a "dually" but used the original rear axle. That picture is basically a Willys cab sitting on some other truck's frame. And no, please don't lower it.
