This incredible 1941 Willys Coupe is the kind of rod most guys only dream of owning
Count this as your chance to take home a show-stopper hotrod that is every bit a match for those cars you’ve been drooling over in the magazines for the past 20 years. LS power, high-impact color, and a stunning interior make this car a total rock star.
The body was built by Jim’s Hot Rods, and if you know their work, you know this is a first-class build all the way. With impeccable fit and finish, this fiberglass rod is more than a match for its steel counterparts and benefits from modern engineering that give it a highly polished feel on the road. The Corvette Atomic Orange finish absolutely sizzles, all separated by a dagger of a Sandy Beach side stripe that tapers down the body’s natural contours. Shaved handles, hidden hinges, that classic Willys grille, custom mirrors, and teardrop headlights are classic design cues that are neatly incorporated into this rod, along with those perfect circle taillights This car looks right, sits right, and won’t be mistaken for anything else on the road. Sit back and drink it in.
The incredible interior is perhaps even more dialed-in than the body (trust us, they’re both equally spectacular), with tan ultraleather buckets highlighted by design accents on the seats, door panels, and even the headliner. A custom dash full of Dakota gauges and billet controls and vents has a classic and simple layout, and a custom center console houses the Lokar shifter for the 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission underneath. There’s also every creature comfort you could ask for, including Vintage Air A/C, power windows, and a stereo system powerful enough to make your ears bleed. That Boss AM/FM/CD/DVD head unit powers speakers throughout the cabin, filling the car with tunes that could only be rivaled by a nice rev from the motor. The custom trunk enclosure has hidden compartments for the fuel tank and battery, and is as slick-looking as the engine bay, so you’ll want to show it off every chance you get.
So many Willys rods are so over-built that they’re next to impossible to drive, but this one carries a professionally built 5.3L LS EFI small block that’s both powerful and tractable. FiTech provided a fuel injection system that helps the motor place its huge horsepower to the ground quickly, and the entire engine bay is finished to show standards with a combo of black-polished-orange components. Quite frankly, there’s a lot more to the motor (and the whole car for that matter) than we have space to list here but give us a call and we’ll go down the laundry list of the build. A set of custom long-tube headers snake through the orange tube Jim’s Hot Rod frame and dump into a Flowmaster exhaust system. The front suspension is a Mustang II with a power rack-and-pinion, while out back a custom 9-inch rear hangs on a racing 4-link with coilovers. Inside, you’ll find street-friendly 3.70 gears and there’s a disc brake at all four corners, making this car easy to drive with impressive performance on the street. Polished aluminum mags complete the look, wearing 24×5.00×15 front and 30×12.00×15 rear tires for a classic hot rod stance.
