This started as a wrecked Willys Gasser Coupe I found in Maine, The car was crashed bad to the point the rear of the roof was ripped off. So i rebuilt the body shell with a piece from a fiberglass body I had . The back half of the roof is from the glass car everything else is steel. The fenders front and rear are stee, hoo, center section,trunk lid is stee, the doors i made from sedan doors and are steel also . Grill and headlights are original not aftermarket .The floors are made from steel sheet metal .
The chassis is a mint 40 Willys chassis sand blasted and painted flat black. All new springs and chassis parts were used with a WAC custom built front axle . Ford spindles and disc brakes on the front . The 57 olds rear axle is all new rebuilt Posi 30, 31 spline axles and brakes . Vintage Cragar SS wheels front and rear with new cheater slicks and skinny front runners.

The motor uses studs top and botto, oil pump was ported and polishe, I run the blower at 5 over to keep it from heating up in the florida heat ..
