Vehicle Description

41 Willys Pro Street Coupe

Professionally built for SHOW & GO.   If you want to enjoy the nightly “cruise night” or weekly car shows and don’t mind head turning and attention getting behavior with large smiles. This might be the car for you.  This award winning “Street Rod” was built with all the attention to details and quality craftsmanship available by Arizona Street Rod Shop.  Willy was put into service in 2007 and was moved to Wisconsin in 2014. He is looking for another caretaker that would continue to give him that TLC that he is used to getting.     

  • The chassis and custom made boxed and reinforced steel frame was made by one of the best and oldest fiberglass street rods builders in the business, “Outlaw Performance Inc.” It comes with a certification Frame & Body serial numbered certificate.  The body gaps are dead on, the doors open, close and hang evenly and sturdily.
  •  Power Windows (by specialty mfg.)
  •  Keyless entry (by DEI).  All are leak free with the weather-stripping looking like new.  The whole chassis, frame and undercarriage components are all painted and color matched to the body color.   
  • Front End Suspension (by Heidts “Super Ride II” ) Chrome and polished with adjustable coilovers and shocks. Also, chromed upper and lower tubular control arms with Rack and Pinion steering.
  •  Brakes: He has no trouble stopping. (Wilwood) 12” polished, 4 piston Disc Brake calipers with  braided  stainless steel brake lines on all four
  •  9” Rear axle (by Currie) is body painted, narrowed with a 3.73 Gear Ratio.  This axle is built to handle the huge tires without breaking a sweat.   The rear suspension has chrome adjustable coilover shocks with a fully polished 4 link rear suspension system.  
  • Wheels and Tires This rod has the front lowered stance of a true gladiator with (Mickey Thompson) 26x6.00S/R radials on Weld Racing prostar polished wheels and massively huge rear Mickey Thompson S/R radials on  31x18x15” on Weld Racing 15”x 14” wide prostar polished wheels. 
  •  Paint is sprayed with  PPG Ultra Violet metallic basecoats.  Over that is a ton of artistry and experience that went into the laying down of multiple layers of soft silver grey metallic ghost flames over the purple violet basecoat on the fenders, doors and hood.  The car was then sealed with numerous coats of clear coat, hand sanded and polished to an award winning mirror glass finish that still ranks among the best paints jobs around.  Close up it is clear that Willy has been paid a lot of attention over the years.  It has certainly aged well with only a few small minor chips due to normal wear and tear.  Rest assured the body and paint still looks absolutely amazing.      
  • Powerplant: (GM Hi performance ZZ502) Big Block Crate Engine.  This monster motor has forged steel rods and crankshaft, steel 4 bolt mains, forged aluminum pistons with a hydraulic roller cam.  Topped with an (Edelbrock) aluminum manifold with 2 Edelbrock 4 barrel - 650 cfm carbs.   They are fed by a high capacity (Holley #150) electric fuel pump alongside of (Holley comp #140) canister style fuel filter, which are both polished aluminum.   A Dakota digital command 8000 command module that has a 8 function electrical system that includes functional remote doors and windows with full set of digital oil, temperature, volts and fuel gauges.

  • Transmission: (GM performance) Turbo 400 3 speed automatic transmission.

  • Trunk Is very clean and includes matching leather covered interior on all sides.  Underneath these removable covers there is a custom made 18 gallon aluminum gas tank.  In front of that there are dual battery boxes with quick disconnects, carrying 2 new (OPTIMA Red Top) 12v battery’s.  They are one of the best batteries on the market and will guarantee you won’t have any issues with starting that Big Block or turning up the stereo & subwoofer.  In front of the batteries is a leather covered 12” subwoofer.  Sitting between are two huge leather covered rear wheel tubs.   

    Willy is well engineered, he handles and steers smoothly and is a pleasure to cruise at 30 or 70 mph.  He starts easily even in hot weather.  The transmission shifts as it should with no effort. The AC was charged up last summer. The distributor has a new electronic sensor. New spark plugs. Tires were replaced the fall of 2016 and they don’t have more than 500 miles on them.  This car has less than 9000 miles on it.   Driving this car is an indescribable experience and thrill that will keep you smiling while you motor down the road.  The car is priced right considering amount of high quality parts this car was built with.   No dealers please.
