This 1941 Willys Coupe is the best of everything.
It’s a fresh build with vivid paint, and while the outside is wild, the inside is a has leather-lined A/C comfort. And that shining scoop rising above the hood lets you know the there is an awesome supercharged powerhouse within.
This is the kind of coupe that doesn’t even try to be sneaky about what it is. The vibrant yellow paint is a modern clearcoat application, and it has a fresh look that comes from a build that has less than 4,400 miles on it. The quality fiberglass body was done with no superfluous badging or handles. That’s how you get one of the most desirable designs in street machines in its purest and sleekest form. In fact, the chrome is now saved just to show off the coupe’s best parts. It’s in the classic front end with the teardrop headlights and electric shaver grille. Brightwork also shows off the competition-worthy Weld racing wheels with true beadlocks. It all creates a stance and attitude that lets people recognize from any angle that this is one powerful machine.
While the exterior is meant to be intimidating, the interior is absolutely accommodating. It starts with a set of excellent bucket seats finished tan leather and cloth. The materials set the tone for the door panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash. It’s detail-oriented, and so you see cool pieces, like how the weave patter in the door panels is also seen in the custom amplifier enclosure in the trunk. It’s the kind of thoughtful and uniform presentation that can win awards all on its own. This is also built with the best features, like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, and even a backup camera. And because this is a powerful coupe, it’s set up to give the driver firm control. That means a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel on a tilt column, Lokar floor shifter, and a dash dominated by AutoMeter gauges.
The full front end tilts forward so that everyone can get an excellent view at this awesome powerplant. And we know you’re going to want to show this one off everywhere, because we dare you to find another piece that can be polished to a mirror-like shine. But while the appearance is meant to draw people in, the full build is designed to blow their doors off. That’s a 355 cubic-inch V8 with a Weiand supercharger proudly sitting on top. It inhales deeply with dual Edelbrock 750 CFM four-barrel carburetors, and this exhales with authority as the wrapped headers have a short journey to MBRP mufflers before making a thundering exhaust note. This has all the right supporting components, too, like a billet serpentine belt drive system, steel braided lines, AN fittings, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The mighty motor feeds into a stout 700R4 four-speed automatic that was built with a 2800 RPM stall to keep you in the ideal powerband. It feeds a strong Ford 9-inch rear attached to this massive Hoosier tires. As you check out the undercarriage photos, you see a ton more great investments, like the strong Bad Boys Willys custom chassis. Up front are tubular control arms, the rear is a four-link with diagonal rod, and there are adjustable coilovers behind every wheel – that’s exactly what you want in a suspension made for both the street and strip. Add in power steering and a four-wheel power disc brake package, and this Willys really gives you the best of everything.
