1920 Willys Overland
Touring Car – Horseless Carriage!!
Rare Motor Car – From Private
This car and the Willys-Overland name represents a time or an era where our ideas for a new business were always put on paper or a napkin(whatever was available) and discussed over a drink. Then into brick and mortar. Since back in the teens the automobile was still being development and the never ending need for travel was here to stay. It was cars like these that gave us our sense of freedom. Where a Sunday drive was a treat, not a necessity. Every smart engineer or builder were always finding ways to do it better, to make it faster and that’s how companies like the Willys Overland were formed and developed. This 1920 Willys Overland was recently removed out of a collection of cars that housed all these late teens to early 30’s automobiles. This car was restored years ago and still presents great.
