1941 Willys back from the Grave
The Willys Americar was a line of automobiles produced by Willys-Overland Motors from 1937 to 1942, either as a sedan, coupe, station wagon or pickup truck. The coupe version is a very popular hot rod choice, either as a donor car or as a fiberglass model. Critical four-cylinder engine failures, lack of reposition parts and the sheer lack of assistance from Willys turned many Americars into perfect targets for the nascent hot rod community - the Go Devil engine was replaced with many other alternatives, some weaker, some much stronger than the original specification. It became such a favorite with Hot Rodders that today a 100% stock Americar is a very rare find. Soundtrack... Just alright by The Riverside Trio
Willys Night 2015 - Crusin' Grand - 4/10/15
5:17 - The Willys' start their engines 8:06 - The Willys' parade down Grand Ave. Willy's is one of my favorite marques, so when I found out Cruisin' Grand had it as a featured marque, I had to go see it. So glad they switched Lone Wolf night with Willy's night, which would usually be the opening theme to start of Cruisin' Grand's season.
