This 1933 Willys Gasser (titled as a 2013 ASVE) is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 33 Willys coupe was a desperate attempt to beat bankruptcy after the great depression hit the company hard. Little did anyone know that this little car would become the basis for many dragsters but the company s most successful vehicle, the JEEP. Gassers however is what these cars are truly known for and this one was built by what many say the best in the business, American Gasser in Saginaw MI. The car started life as nothing but fiberglass and steel but quickly became one of the nicest builds the crew had done. Starting with 2 x3 handcrafted tube frame as the base for everything else to build from. The front end consists of a flaming river 6 inch drop chromed axle, a set of eagles I beam connecting rods and speedway spindles are all controlled thru the Flaming River Vega steering box. The classic Ford 9-inch rear end with a Currie housing is stuffed with a set Moser 3.55 gears that are turning a set Moser 31 spline axles making for one of the most durable rear ends I have seen. The QA1 coil-overs give the car a pretty good ride with the custom built 42-inch ladder bars helping with any traction problems you may have. The heart of this American monster is what really sets apart from the competition. The blown 355 has a massive and iconic 671 blower sitting on top and peeking out thru the hood. The 2 Barry Grant Carbs feed a massive amount of 91 octane to the setup. Internals consist of an Eagle Crank and rods with a Comp Cam 507/501 giving it a nasty, lumpy idle. Spark is courtesy of the MSD setup including distributor, 6AL Digital ignition control and a blaster coil. With the sum of the parts outing out an astounding 600+HP this ride is not for the faint of heart. The interior has been tastefully done by a shop called Sullivan upholstery that has put a quality interior in it. The matching red 4-point cage is a nice touch especially against the black buckets seats. The Willys engraved in the headrest really tie it all together and the Simpson 5-point restraint system hopefully will be just for looks. The dash consists of a set Vintage Brand gauges to monitor all the vitals. If you have been wanting something a little different yet iconic, a little quirky yet unbelievably cool then this 33 Willy s Gasser is all of those and then some. Options on this 1933 Willys Gasser include, Vinyl Interior, 4 Wheel WIlwood Disc Brakes, 5 Point Harness, and Aluminum Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires.
