Fred Williams’ garage-find 1961 Willys Wagon has been sitting with bad brakes and a tired drivetrain ever since a prior engine swap (Episode 37), so it was time to set that straight on this episode of Dirt Every Day presented by Tire Rack. Believe it or not, the Dirt Heads pulled out the Chevy LS V-8 to swap the entire Willys wagon onto a wrecked Wrangler YJ frame and drivetrain for a more reliable retro wheeler. The guys spend most of the show in the shop wrenching and fabricating in order to bring a cool-looking old Jeep back from the dead and prep it for summer wheeling fun.
