1928 Willys

If there was ever a barn find this is it. This is the story told to me when I purchased it in 2011. I am the second owner of this car. It was originally purchased in Los Angeles California and lived its life in Fallbrook California. It has always been stored indoors. The original owner had kept meticulous care of it and if any repairs were needed, t was taken care of ASAP by a local mechanic. In 1970 it had won an “Antique Automobile Club of America” award for best original. It still wears the badge proudly, ee pictures. Sometime in the early 70’s the owner became ill and passed. The car was put on blocks and covered until I purchased it and brought it back to life. I was told the 67,000 miles was correct but I have no documentation to sustain that. I rebuilt the carb, nstalled a new fuel pump and filter, leaned the fuel system, hanged all the fluids and she fired right up. The vacuum canister gasket is bad so I’m assuming that is why an electric 2 psi fuel pump was installed. I linseed oiled and spar varnished the wheels and put 5 new tires and tubes on it and been driving it ever since. She runs like a top! I have taken her on 30 to 40 mile trips and she ran flawlessly. I’m selling the Whippet because I do not drive her much anymore and she needs someone who will. If you’re looking for a perfect painted restored machine then this is not the car for you. She is an 87 year old car and wears her patina proudly. She has cable brakes so you need to give it a little extra time when stopping. The nickel plating has some pitting but is all in all great shape. There are no rust issues at all with this car. If I have left anything out please don’t hesitate to send me a message, will answer as soon as I can. When you come to pick it up andif you decide its really not what you expected, o problem I will refund your deposit and put her back up for sale. Once she leaves my house, hen the deal is done, o refunds. She doesn't leave my property until the cashiers check has cleared my bankif that is the way you wish to pay.
