Willys would make a few attempts at taking on the big guys from
Detroit, and this 1954 Willys Aero Lark is one of those few
products. But you're going to love this for more than just rarity.
It's a fully upgraded package with distinct paint, a comfy
interior, upgraded chassis, and proper V8 power. It means this
rarely-seen two-door sedan is the kind of cruiser that can be taken
a lot more places.
This has a clean look with well-fitting panels, shining chrome,
good glass, and a unique hint of tailfin perfect for a 1950s
machine. So if it's so attractive, why don't you see the Aero Larks
around? Because they were made in nearly exotic car numbers. There
were less than 11,000 Willys cars in total, and of those, only
about 1,500 were Aero Lark two-doors. Basically, Chevrolet averaged
more vehicles in a half-day shift than Willys made Aero Lark
two-doors all year in 1954! So this is some rare metal to find
nearly 70 years later. And just like the pre-war Willys coupes that
beg to be turned into street machines, this one follows suit, too.
This is covered in a metallic green that has an emerald-like glow.
On top of it is a neon green pinstriping on all sides, and there's
even added orange to draw added emphasis to the emblems front and
rear. And if you look closely as the two-piece wheel trim, you can
see that there's a pretty wide rear set that makes for the right
hint of an aggressive stance.
While the exterior wants to give you a hint of custom street
machine style, the interior has been made into a custom that
emphasizes comfort. You notice that immediately with the plush
velour on the seats. And the door panels and dash insert were done
to match, too. Plus, with the exterior green on the metal of the
door panels and dash, it just feels like a thoughtful total
package. There's even an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input for the
best in modern driving music. And speaking of driving, the
banjo-style sports steering wheel, polished tilt column, Lokar
floor shifter, and updated VDO gauges make for a cool classic that
wants to hit the road.
Another great trait of a Willys is how they can easily accept V8
power. This one loves to show it off with a touch of added flair
where the gold-painted block goes with valve covers, and the whole
color theme coordinates with the custom metallic green inner walls.
This is a 302 cubic-inch V8 with a flat tappet cam, and it's
well-built with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Pro Comp intake,
and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. The three-speed
automatic transmission has a 3500 stall to keep you in the ideal
powerband, and there are traction bars on the rear to keep the
Mickey Thompson rear tires planted. And features like the upgraded
S10 chassis, aluminum radiator, power steering, power brakes, and
front discs also make this a confident cruiser.
This Willys has appeal and distinction that go well beyond its
rarity. That's what makes it so irresistible. Call today!!!
