Classic Car Overview

Although Willys survived in one form or another through the 50s, its really the cars (and trucks) they built in the pre-war era that really get enthusiasts attention. This 1941 Willys pickup, while fiberglass, nails the look that put Willys onto so many fans must-have lists and with a 5.0 Mustang powertrain, its as reliable as it is good-looking. Satin black is always a great look on vintage pickups, even if theyre brand-new. It recalls the days when old trucks would have been parts-chasers at hot rod shops or push vehicles at Bonneville. It has a no-nonsense vibe that was born out of one part economy and one part low-maintenance, and it still works today. Of course, with fresh fiberglass bodywork as your starting point, youre going to get some pretty impressive results, and this cool pickup fits together rather well. Without rapping your knuckles on its skin, youll never know what its made of, and everyone knows its a Willys even without the neat little badge on the hood. The 41s are iconic with their teardrop headlights and electric shaver grille, both of which are accurately replicated here. The bed is still functional and usable, so this is still a truck at heart, and again, the low-maintenance surfaces ensure that youll never worry about using it as a real vehicle. The interior is considerably more up-to-date than the bare-bones original design, starting with a leather bench seat, custom console, and custom door panels to make it feel far more upscale than the original Willys designers envisioned. A three spoke wheels and gauges that look a lot like vintage Stewart Warner dials help with that vintage look, but you also get such niceties as cold A/C, a tilt steering column, and power windows to make this an easy place to spend your time. The center console houses a Hurst shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission and while its compact, it isnt claustrophobic thanks to the light upholstery and big windows. Theres plenty of sound insulation, so its comfortable and cool inside, another hallmark of a quality build. This isnt a generic kit car, this is a machine where someone was sweating the details. Swing the long, pointed hood open and youre greeted by the familiar Ford 5.0 liter Mustang intake manifold and accessories. Bulletproof reliable, torquey as all get-out, and lots of fun, its a very neat fit in the Willys engine bay and will work well for many years to come. Its also nice to see something thats not a Chevy and with fuel injection, it feels far, far more modern. A few polished bits along with yellow highlights make the engine bay look dressed up, and theres a big Griffin aluminum radiator up front that doesnt have any trouble keeping up with the injected 302. Theres also an upgraded alternator and R134a refrigerant in the A/C system for reliability. The Mustangs 5-speed manual transmission shifts beautifully and surprisingly, it all sits on a 1998 Chevrolet S10 pickup chassis, so the steering and rear end are modern as well. 4-wheel disc brakes are a great addition to the roster and the front end was totally rebuilt with new ball joints and bushings. Fat sway bars front and rear give it appropriately sporty handling and those 15-inch Rocket Gasser wheels are period-perfect with 215/70/15 front and 295/50/15 rear Mickey Thompson radials wrapped around them. A neat truck with lots of features, lots of power, and a great look, all for about half the cost of construction. Pretty hard to beat that. Call today
