History : The Whippet name appeared quietly as a four-cylinder model in 1927. The little 30hp car was just over 12 feet long--the smallest car in America--so when Willys introduced ** a stretched 40hp, sleeve-valve six-cylinder a few months later, it was a lively performer. It soon became a lively seller as well, when Willys offered a six-cylinder model 93-A roadster for $695, the world`s lowest-priced six. From 1928 through the stock market crash, times were as good as they`d ever get for Willys. The Whippet six-cylinder proved itself both swift and trustworthy in numerous trials and endurance runs, and put the company in third place behind Ford and Chevrolet. There was more to the Whippet than a pretty face. As compact as the crankshaft for the 178.3-cu.in. engine was, it was supported by seven main bearings, and sent alloy Nelson Bohnalite Invar strut pistons stroking through 3-7/8 inches of travel. It featured pressure lubrication to everywhere but the piston pins, and an adjustable timing chain. Whippets grew with the times, so within a couple of years, they had 50 hp and could ride on a wheelbase longer than the entire 1927 car.
