1941 WillysI want to start off by asking you to please call forhonest answers BEFORE you bid. Or better yet, ome by and look at the vehicle or have someone inspect it for you.

It is impossible to list every little item on a vehicle that may or may not beimportant to a buyer. Thanks.
This is a super cool and very unique Willys Gasser. The body and frame were purchased back in 2001 and the car was finished in 2002. I have a very thick file with receipts foralmost everything from day one of the build.
NOTE: This car was built to mimic a bad ass 60's style gasser, hich it does very well. It has never been raced, nd would probably require some ladder bars, r some other rear end traction upgrades, or it to " Hook up". Right now it just fries therear tires. It is always one of the main hits at cruise nights.
Body: One of the best and heaviest duty bodies I have comeacross. It came out of Florida from a company named " Out of Florida " of all things. I have the original sales receipt for it, ut thecompany went out of businessyears ago. The molds were created from an actual steel 41 Willys, o they are exactly the same size. The fenders were moldedseparately, ot molded to the body in one piece like the cheaperfiberglass companies do. The fenders are still the samesize as factory steel fenders. No modifications have been made to the wheel well openings, tc. If youlook at the trunk picture, ou can see the shape of the factory metal bracing from the original steel trunk lid that was used. The trunk lid is very heavy to pick up and is held down by gravity. This car is NOT PAINTED. The color you see is actually the gell coat polished out. Very cool and vintage looking.Obviously there are flaws,scratches, nd otherblemishes, s one expect on a gell coat only exterior, o do not expect a show carfinish on this car. The lettering is real paint, ot stick on vinyl. It fools a lot ofpeople at cruise nights because it looks just like an old steel gasser from the 60's. The doors were changed to suicide doors. That would not have been my choice, ut it does make it easier to get in and out of it. It has electric door poppers on them, ut they have beendisconnected. The previous ownersinadvertently opened a door while driving when the key fob he had inhispocketaccidentallyengaged. Luckily he was just idling along at the time. He installed wire pulls as atemporary fix, hatturned into apermanent fix. ( see pics ) I bought a complete all new manual door handle system for it, hat comes with the car. Inside and outsidehandles and all hardware. The windows are power. The cage is not a NHRA certified cage, ut it would be better thannothing in anaccident. I do have the hood for it, ut it has never been installed. It has a stainless steel continuous hinge that willbolt right to the fasteners that are on thefirewall already, ery similar to the way an original Willys did. It is blue gell coat also. I also have the fiberglass cover for the firewall where you can see the distributer in the pictures, nterior window trim, nd the head light buckets. All of the lights work including blinkers. No wipers or horn. Tilt steering wheel.Gauges are all Auto meter and work just fine.
Frame and suspension: Custom made rectangular steel tube frame. Looks like a Speedwayfront axle. Manual Vega steering box. Drive shaft loop. 9" Ford rear end with 4:11 posi. 4 wheel disc brakes. Backs areWilwood. Fronts look like factory GM. It stops and steers great.
Driveline:Rebuilt 454 Chevy big block with complete HD rotating assembly internals for the blower application. 8 to 1 compression.Lunatic 0002 cam. 544 lift and 292 duration. Summit part # LUN-000241K, nbsp;Roller rockers. High performancealuminum heads. 871 Weiand blower with 750 CFM Edlebrock carbs. Gear drive. Wetintrossystem. ( note: the NOS system is hooked up, nd could be used I guess if you have big enough gonads, ut the bottle has never been filled or system used. There is absolutely no need for additional power for this car. It just adds to the WOW factor. Trans is a highperformanceHugheswith a 2500 stall converter. It has a manual shift reverse valve body in it.Summet Part # HUP-34-2R.Spark is provide with all MSD ignition parts. Headers are 55-57 Chevyfender wells with vintage Super Trap extensions / mufflers. One tube has a crack on top of it. Easy fix for a welder. This car is very nasty sounding and will wake up the neighbors.
Wheels and tires: Keeping withthe vintage look:The wheels are real, intage ET mag wheels. Not new reproductions. 15" x 5.5" on the front and 15" x 8.5" on the back. The rear tires are newFirestone bias ply reproduction 10"per crust slicks. Fronts are new bias ply reproductions also.
I know I am forgettingsomething here, o please call for additional information.
This is not a car that you want to drive hundreds of miles back home in. Please plan on having it hauled or shipped.
AND ----- If you are going to have this car shipped, would highly recommend an enclosed trailer. It has never been in the rain yet, nd this would not be the time to chance raingetting into areas where it shouldn't.
AND ----- Make sure you ask if the trucker will take to hood as an additional item.
I will not give out my reserve price. Please do not ask.
NO TRADES, LEASE DO ASK ASK.
There is no " Buy It Now Price " Please don't ask for one.
You can make a reasonable offer if you wish, ut I will not end the listing once the auction hits thereasonable reserve price.

The vehicle does not leave here until all funds clear my bank. Bank and cashiers checks can take up to 10 business days. My bank will give me a letter stating the date when the check will clear. I will forward a copy of the letter to you. Bank transfers can take up to 2 days depending on what time of the day it is initiated on your end. Again, y bank will let me know when it clears. Cash is great if picking it up in person.
