1941 Willys Coupe -- Description:

The 1941 Willys Coupe is an icon in the street rod scene. But this one is playing on a different level, because when you pay for premium, you get it, too. Not only do you get amazing paint, a custom leather interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and a competition-ready suspension, but it's also all backed up by a dual-quad big block Mopar with a blower on top! The paint alone can attract a crowd and keep them captivated. The... name purple doesn't do the main color justice. It has so much clearcoat and metallic element it has the wet-look we all want. And in fact it's going to take plenty of liquid to put out those flames that are consuming the whole front end. The starts white-hot and burns into a beautiful orange and red that has a pinstripe to keep it all so crisp. And while the first impression is stunning, the presentation goes well beyond paint. This's because this this custom build has a tight-tolerance fiberglass body on a durable Art Morrison chassis. The door handles are shaved and there's no superfluous chrome. That keeps your focus on the iconic electric shaver grille and teardrop headlights. The rounded taillights are the only element allowed on the butter-smooth rear where the sloping design instantly reminds you why the Willys coupe is an icon. Some cars try to hide their aggressive stance, but on this one, those swoopy fenders can barely contain it. You can just instantly tell by how deep those rear rims go that there is serious rubber meeting the pavement. The interior is a custom setup by the master Gabe Lopez. So you don't just get a beautiful blue leather interior, but also nice details, like deep blue carpeting and with piping in the seats and door panels. Plus, you have terrific flame work with the embossed door panels, and a fireball painted on the dash to look just like the front end. You also have provisions that make it easy to upgrade into great features like power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and air conditioning. But as good and comfortable as this looks, this Willys is a true driver's machine. That's why you have the B&M shifter and the center console dominated by a full set of auxiliary readouts. Plus, that grippy sports steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view to the Stewart Warner Maximum Performance speedo and tach. Chrysler is the keeper of the Willys name and history, so you know they were extra thoughtful with this build when they gave it Mopar power. There was over $18,000 invested just in the motor in 2013 (and we have the receipts to prove it!) and that money was for more than just getting a terrific shine. This is a pro-built unit by Engine Performance in San Dimas, CA. It's a full balanced assembly with a Weiand 6-71 blower proudly sitting on top. This is designed to handle big power that's why it has great performance components like ARP bolts, Clevite rods & bearings, polished crankshaft, and dual Holley four-barrel carburetors. But it takes more than just a monster motor to bring power to the streets. The strong Torqueflight A727 three-speed automatic transmission feeds a Currie 9-inch rear with Moser axles. A four-link rear with adjustable coilovers keeps the meaty rear tires firmly on the road. Plus, as you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see other great features like the tubular A-arm front end and four-wheel disc brakes. This is an amazing unbeatable street rod in every way - from its artful appearance to the big power Mopar V8 peeking out of the hood. You know how special this high-quality build is, so better get your hands on this one before it's gone. Call today!!!
