Willys Pickup Gets Nominated for the NY Times 2010 Collectible Car of the Year!

Most classic Jeep fans know that Willys pickups are special vehicles, but now the New York Times has jumped on the bandwagon!

The New York Times recently announced the top 30 collectible cars and trucks to be judged for the title of 2010 Collectible Car of the Year. The Times indicated that the paper’s judges have picked the top 30 from among hundreds of photos submitted by readers.

Among the top 30 vehicles is a mint condition 1954 Willys Pickup from Troy, Maine. The pickup, which is powered by a “Super Hurricane” 6-cylinder, reportedly has 54,000 original miles. The only apparent non-stock upgrades to the vehicle include seatbelts and a 12-volt electrical system.

The Times was asking for readers to register and vote for their favorite vehicle, but unfortunately voting ended on May 17, 2010. The New York Times will announce the winning vehicle on July 24, 2010. Head on over to the New York Times website to check out the pictures of the lovely ’54 pickup as well as all the other sweet top 30 readers’ rides.

PS – Thanks to Darrell Hewko for the tip!
