Willys Coupes are extremely popular, especially when they are
powered by big block V8 engines and loaded with options. This very
nice example does a great job of combining classy looks with raw
power and drivability.
Let's start with the exterior of this high-end fiberglass bodied
build. It is painted in a stunning and classy two-tone paint job
that takes elegance to a whole new level. The paint is pearl and
absolutely glistens in the sunlight. The two colors are broken up
by a pinstripe that carries into the door jambs and under the hood.
Pictures do not do this car justice, at all!
The initial impression of timeless class and style is quickly
replaced with curiosity when you see the polished intake peeking
out of the hood! That intake is bolted to dual 4-barrel carburetors
on top of a 454 CID big block that has been bored to a 468 cubic
inch monster! That engine is built with dual Holley 4-barrels on an
Edelbrock tunnel ran intake, aluminum valve covers with "Willys"
etched on them, serpentine belt system, braided lines, and an
aluminum radiator with electric fan to keep it all cool.
Full-length headers run to dual exhaust with glass packs for that
classic hot rod sound!
The big V8 is mated to a stout Turbo 400 automatic transmission and
then heads out back to a custom built narrowed rear end to fit
those wide back tires! Underneath the car is clean and ready to
show with the frame, rear end, front end, and suspension components
carrying the same peach color as the exterior. A Mustang II front
end makes this car handle like a dream and 4-wheel disc brakes
bring it to a stop in hurry! A driveshaft loop and 4-link setup on
the rear end keep it planted and added security. A frame mounted
master cylinder keeps the engine bay show ready and polished
tubular control arms add to the show quality of the vehicle and
ride quality. Adjustable coil over shocks on all four corners and
rack and pinion steering means just about anyone can be comfortable
driving this street rod. The e-brake is a driveshaft brake and the
underside features a chrome oil pan, paint matched transmission and
transmission pan, braided lines, and chrome transmission inspection
Slip on into the interior and you are greeted by leather bucket
seats. You will notice the piping on the seats brings in the
exterior color. They thought of everything when building this
custom '41 Willys! The comfortable seats have you facing a Budnik
steering wheel on polished tilt column. The AM/FM/CD/XM flip out
radio allows you to crank out your favorite tunes while heading to
the local cruise or car show. Classic Industries gauges are, as the
name says, classic and timeless and look great in any build. A
B&M Quick Silver Shifter is a nice touch along with power
windows, and power driver's seat.
Other features include LED taillights, frenched license plate,
frenched antenna, factory style hood trim (Rarely seen on a
fiberglass car), and custom hood openings and side vents that allow
cool air into the engine compartment and look pretty mean doing it!
