1941 Willys Pickup --
This stunning one-of-a-kind pickup nicknamed "Excessive" by its original builders is the product of a 6.5-year $400K restoration that was completed by Rickardsville Iowa's Avalon Body Shop. And based on appearance the truck's original 1941 steel was certainly a clean canvas before its radical transformation started. That's right everything you see here is solid steel that's been tweaked massaged and polished into an award-winning head turner. How award-winning you ask? Well in 2004 the truck wa...s a Ridler Great 8 Finalist the same year it was featured in Custom Classic Trucks Magazine. In 2006 it was featured in Kit Car Magazine and stole the cover of Northern Rodder Magazine. In 2008 it was featured in a Street Rods calendar. And it's also been a Goodguys Truck of the Year - Early finalist. Built to go just as well as it shows this Willys 502 cubic inch GM Performance Parts big block utilizes quality Street & Performance tuned port injection to create a stout 510 horsepower! Behind that legendary big block a dressed Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed built by Shift Point Transmission Specialists of Kieler Wisconsin twists a narrowed and smoothed Currie 9-inch. That drivetrain rolls in smoothed 2x4 tubing which is perched on Aldan Eagle coil-overs a polished Art Morrison front-clip and a polished 4-bar rear-clip. Turns come courtesy of manual rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided when a smoothed and painted Corvette master cylinder jolts four polished calipers via painted steel lines. And torque meets the pavement through stylish Mickey Thompson blades which spin 26x8.00R18 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs in front of 31x18.00R20 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs. This rare and equally cool Willys combines top-notch craftsmanship with a roster of proven performance hardware that's ready to hit the road today! Call click or visit for more information.
