That is a very nice looking, clean Willys!!

Do you have any more pics to share of this one?
Sorry, that's all I have. It is indeed a very nice and clean '46 Willys as you mentioned. He wheels the crap out of it but keeps it maintained and takes great care of it. He also has a Chevy V-6 under the hood.
