Classic Car Overview

This 1941 Willys coupe is the veritable definition of fantastic overkill, and the result of a wild dream and open-checkbook professional build. The compact body has been stuffed with a built-up 540 Merlin aluminum engine, a snug-fitting custom leather interior, and an outrageous high-impact yellow paint job that blinds any that dare stare too close. If youre out to get noticed, this is definitely the right streetrod for the job. Second only to Fords line of 3-window coupes in terms of hotrod popularity, the 1941 Willys has the right look for the pro-street makeover. The body seems to be just barely big enough to contain the mechanicals within, and with those teardrop-shaped headlights, 37 Ford taillights, and electric shaver chrome grille, theres no mistaking it for anything else on the road. The fiberglass Outlaw body is beautifully finished, showing expert workmanship from every angle, with doors that fit flush and a giant hood that accommodates the horsepower monster that lies beneath. The Boyds Yellow Chromobase paint seems to glow from within like its radioactive or something, and it was expertly applied to the point that weve yet to find an imperfection to speak of its simply that nice. Shaved door handles, smoke-tinted windows, trick side mirrors, and simple integrated taillights are the kinds of little details that add up to a big effect on the overall look. Its easy to see why these are so popular, and why we had to clean up a drool streak that followed this beauty into our photo booth. Theres actually more room inside than youd expect by looking at the coupe bodywork, and the deeply bolstered, custom leather buckets make it easy to spend time there. A polished tilt column with a leather-wrapped billet wheel is a big improvement over the original Willys bus-style steering gear, and the custom-sculpted, paint-matched dash carries a full array digital/analog AutoMeter gauges. Cool modern-art vents manage the airflow from the Vintage Air A/C system, whose controls are neatly integrated into the custom middle console that anchors the cabin. Inside that simply stunning middle console are more vents for the A/C, switches for the power windows, and the ignition, while built right above it is a custom roll-bar style platform that houses the B&M shifter. Wow! Those door panels are simply elegant, the taut headliner houses an Alpine AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo, and out back the trunk has been upholstered to match the cabin with neat bindings on and an embroidered Willys script on the bulkhead. Despite the massive wheel tubs, theres actually a decent amount of storage in there if youd care to take a long trip in this slick coupe. Better bring your liquid-cooled gas card with you when you go, because making big horsepower is what the neck-breaking 540 V8 Merlin under the hood does best. The all-aluminum block is augmented with Brodix heads and inhales through the dual-bazooka air cleaner, Holley carb, and custom polished intake to deliver RIGHT NOW throttle response that will take some getting used to out on the street. Seriously, this thing makes insane power well before you can get your foot on the floor, so make sure its pointed where you want it to go before you stomp on the loud pedal. With only 2k miles on the build and insane attention to detail, its also beautiful to look at, with lots of chrome and polished aluminum plus a compact accessory drive system that puts all the components in exactly the right place for the Willys engine bay. The A/C uses R134a refrigerant, so its easy to service, and a big radiator up front means you dont have to worry about using it to stay cool. The TH400 transmission has obviously been heavily reinforced with a 3k stall convertor and spins a narrowed Corvette rear end out back. Everything is chromed or painted bright yellow underneath, including the custom tube chassis from Mark Williams, Fatman front end, and coilovers and power disc brakes at each corner. A custom stainless dual exhaust provides an awesome soundtrack, and the traditional big-n-little tire combination comes via Boyd Coddington rims wrapped with 215/45/17 front and 295/45/20 rear BFGoodrich radials. Outrageously fast and tons of fun, this expertly built rod is a turn-key piece that is more than just pretty. Call today!
