For Sale: 1941 Willys Coupe in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This incredible 1941 Willys Coupe is the kind of hotrod most guys and gals only dream of owning. Count this as your chance to take home a show-stopping custom streetrod that's every bit a match for those cars you've been drooling over in the magazines for the past 20 years. Huge 350ZZ4 V8 power, a killer two-tone paint job, performance chassis and suspension, and an outrageous custom interior make this dialed-in Willys Coupe a total rock star.


The body is made from high-end fiberglass, very likely from Street Beast (according to the VIN plate), and if you know their work, then you already know that this is a first-class build all the way. With impeccable fit and finish, this fiberglass rod is more than a match for its steel counterparts and benefits from modern engineering that give it a highly polished feel on the road. The Blue Metallic lower body absolutely sizzles, but is balanced by the striking Silver Metallic upper portion, all separated by an airbrushed bronze pinstripe and ghost flames that follow the body's natural contours and act as a perfect line of demarcation between the contrasting tones. The paint is in excellent condition, with only minor signs of use and age acquired during the miniscule 3649 miles on the build, and the fit-and-finish is exemplary with even gaps, laser-straight panels, and crisp, curvy lines you could set your watch to. Shaved handles and hinges on the suicide doors, that giant clamshell hood, the classic Willys grille, and big, round LED headlights are classic design cues that are neatly incorporated into this rod, along with those incredibly cool teardrop taillights and 2-piece split rear window out back all round out the build beautifully. This rod looks right, sits right, and won't be mistaken for anything else on the road or at the car show.


The incredible interior is perhaps even more outrageous than the body, with charcoal gray tweed buckets highlighted by blue piping accents on the seats, embossed flames on the matching door panels, and tautly wrapped matching tweed materials that line the interior of the cabin and the rear speaker area behind the seats. The door jambs, window sills, and custom dash were all painted to match the exterior theme, right down to the two-tone and pinstripe treatment, and a full array of Auto Meter instruments keep a keen eye on the powerful engine under the hood. A Lokar shifter for the TH400 3-speed automatic was mounted atop the transmission tunnel, and it's the perfect complement to the billet door hardware and leather-wrapped billet steering wheel that's mounted atop a tilt column. Options are rather limited but you do get power windows, electric door poppers, seatbelts, cupholders, and an upgraded JVC AM/FM/CD head unit that powers speakers in the doors and behind the seats with the help of a mounted Alpine V-Power amplifier. With so few miles on the build, everything is in great shape and even the matching custom trunk enclosure is as slick-looking as the cabin, so you'll want to show it off every chance you get.


So many Willys rods are so over-built that they're next to impossible to drive, but this one carries a stout 350ZZ4 V8 small block that's both powerful and tractable. A Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Bowtie polished aluminum intake, and aluminum heads help it run like a scalded dog, a March serpentine belt system drives the accessories, and an aluminum radiator and auxiliary fan keep the whole show nice and cool. A set of custom long-tube headers snake under the custom frame and dump into a throaty dual exhaust system that exits at the side right before the rear wheels, and with rack-and-pinion steering and power front disc brakes it's very easy to manage on the road. Adjustable coilovers front and rear help with the handling as well, and the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is the perfect dance partner for the ZZ4. Flashy 15-inch Weld wheels look amazing, especially with staggered and deep-lip setup tucked into the rear fenders, and they come wrapped in 135/R15 Firestone fronts and 29x18.50x15 Hoosier rear meats that are very grippy and complete the classic hotrod stance.


Impressively built with a long list of A-list hardware, this is a first-class rod that's poised to take home some seriously big trophies. It would take way more than our asking price to build this car from scratch so whoever gets this beauty is really buying at a huge discount relative to the build cost. Isn't it time you got off the bench and into the game? Call today!
