This 1941 Willys represents a cool hot rod with a ton of extras.
On the outside you see a cool 1941 Willys coupe with eye-catching custom paint; inside you see a custom interior with all the luxuries, including A/C; and under the hood is a strong-running small block V8 and overdrive transmission. That’s why no matter how you look at this one, you see a desirable and cool cruiser.
This Willys represents a cool hot rod with a ton of extras. This feeling starts with the paint. It was redone within the last five years to go from a solid color coupe to an impressive detailed package. The two-tone silver and black have a timeless level of appeal. And the large orange stripe that divides them not only has terrific custom flames, but it also highlights some of the best curves of the classic Willys style. As you get closer, you’ll even see the orange has a blue pinstripe to make sure that everything looks vibrant and well-defined. Best of all, because this is a later build with a ScottRods fiberglass body, it provides a proper canvas for all this paintwork. And we like the way this has an overall sleekness. Curvy fenders, deleted badges, shaved door handles, sport mirrors, and the iconic waterfall grille all make this look smooth and powerful. And of course, when it comes to power, it’s hard to miss the extra wide rear tires that give this a terrific stance and really brings the power to the pavement.
The interior continues some of that cool hot rod flair. That’s why you have orange streaks on the custom door panels and dash. But what you’ll really love about this is the level of comfort it offers. There’s a set of dual bucket seats and they each individually power adjust. Plus, you have power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. It’s easy to get long-haul comfortable with a Lecarra sports steering wheel, tilt column, and full gauge package w/digital speedometer.
The whole hood tilts forward so that people can get a good view at the engine bay. That’s also why this one has extra flair with pieces like the flame-kissed valve covers and an eight-stack style carb cover from Big Daddy Garlits. This is a 350 cubic-inch V8 that inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. It exhales through shorty headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the side exhaust. This is a strong-running powerhouse, and it’s built to be a real driver. That’s why you have good supporting components, like an HEI ignition, newer plug wires, steel braided lines, AN fittings, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. It’s even easy to enjoy this near or far with a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. There’s also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and an upgraded four-link rear with QA1 adjustable coilovers.
