1941 Willys Custom
In the street rod world the 1941 Willys is known as one of the
toughest looking cars on the street. These cars are often combined
with lots of horsepower and a slick custom exterior. This 1941
Willys Custom takes all that but combines in a nostalgic Gasser
dragster look that you just can't beat. The car truly looks like an
old school custom from the metal flake paint to the tall gasser
stance. Despite having the look the car has never ran on the strip
and has accumulated only 50 miles from driving to car shows. The
fiberglass Warhawk Performance body is in great condition and
nicely coated in a thick metal flake Burgundy paint. This is then
paired with vintage sign painted style graphics by Kirby Stafford
(out of Kentucky) including the cars nick name "The Bayou Rebel." A
majority of these graphics were done in Goldleaf. The stance of the
car works perfectly with the overall look but was done
conservatively so that the car is still very drivable. Even the
Hillside Streetrod custom grill and rear bumper are done in that
old track car look. It sits on a fully custom JR Fabrications
chassis and custom Rocker wheels.
Powering the car is a 392 Hemi V8 with dual Edelbrock carburetors,
blower shop 671 blower, Hot head valve covers, and a polished
Vertex Magneto distributor. It has tons a lot of power with 8:5 to
1 compression and you can easily feel all that power sitting behind
the wheel. It is fitted with a lot of polished and chrome
components so it shows well. Backing the motor is a 400 automatic
transmission and 9" Ford rear end with 3:73 gears and 31 spline
axles. The suspension is nicely done as well and the car has a
Heidts front end, 2" drop axle and AFCO coilovers. Other components
include Wilwood brakes.
The interior of the car is done in Black with a painted to match
dash. The dual leather Simpson bucket seats are comfortable and are
fitted with 4 point Simpson harnesses. A custom piston shifter is
mounted to the floor and moves through the gears with ease. Black
faced S&W gauges grace the dash with a Sun tachometer mounted
above the painted to match steering wheel.
It has won many awards including the Painless top 10 and Best
Period Correct at Shades of the Past and more.
