For years, it was a rarity to see a '41 Willys without massive drag radials
and a blower sticking out of the hood. While it remains a classic look, the
next wave seems to have arrived in the form of super modern Willys builds
like this jaw dropping '41 coupe bolted together by the talented crew at
Kenny Davis Hot Rods.
Starting with an Outlaw fiberglass shell, the hood was first lowered and
narrowed approximately two inches. All seams were smoothed out and all
panels were massaged to perfection before the union of House of Kolors
Sunset Pearl and Cinnamon Pearl was sprayed. Divided by custom paint that
convincing replicates the texture of brushed aluminum, the detail present
To turn the mint shell into a functional driver, Mini Cooper headlights
were seamlessly blended into the Willys bulging fenders. Amber turn signal
are hidden out of sight behind the chrome grille. Out black, the sloping
rear is finished by a pair of small round taillights connected to the
billet license plate frame via thin strips of trim.
Pro street or not, a Willys doesn't seem right without a massive motor
under the hood. This one sports a 555 cubic inch V8 built by Pro Modified
legend Jim Oddy. With a long list of high quality internals such as JE
pistons, Eagle rods and a comp cam, this aluminum-headed big block starts
immediately, idles with ease and sounds ready to send other V8's home with
a bloody nose.
Backing that thunderous V8 is a Jerry Lovell-built TH400 automatic
transmission that sends power back to a Ford 9 inch rear end. The front end
is supported by a painted Heidts subframe donning a manual rack and pinion
setup and polished A-arms. The rear is held in place by a polished
adjustable 4-link. Coilovers are found at all corners. The wheels are by
Budnik, sizes 18"x7.5" and 20"x13". Peeking out from behind those wheels
are four-wheel disc brakes by Wilwood.
The interior is tastefully custom with a mixture of caramel colored
Ultraleather and flat orange suede covering the major parts. With better
fit and finish than most modern luxury cars, amenities include air
conditioning, a tilt-wheel and a custom stereo featuring an Eclipse head
unit and a Diamond Audio 10" subwoofer mounted in a custom enclosure in the
Included in this sale is a copy of the car's feature story in the December
2008 issue of Super Rod Magazine. There are also several built receipts and
manuals from installed components.
With head-turning looks, a powerplant worthy of any drag strip and build
quality that will make you appreciate every detail time and time again,
this '41 Willys is an incredible build. If you've always liked the Willys
shape but wanted a slightly different take, don't miss the chance to bring
this one home.

With a fiberglass body from Antique and Collectable Body in Buffalo, New
York, this Willys looks killer in 2-stage Hot Hues Radison Red with
polished aluminum wheels. There are no wild graphics, no scoops or flares,
just the traditional Willys shape and some clean bodywork to create a car
that makes a statement without shouting it. If you know fiberglass, you
know that Antique and Collectable Body puts out some of the nicest stuff in
the industry, and the finish work on this car is first rate. The panels are
straight and wave-free, there's no sign of orange peel in the paint, and
gaps are tidy. The doors open and close with a decisive click and seal up
well. This car has clearly been driven it has almost 3200 miles after all
but the paint shows like brand new. Someone took very good care of this car
while they were out enjoying it.
Power is supplied by a GM Performance Parts crate 502 making 502 horsepower and 502 pounds of
torque, plenty to motivate this relatively lightweight car with authority.
But you'll also notice that the engine bay is well-engineered and
functional. There's not a lot of dress-up and flash under here aside from
the cool custom-built air intake on top of the carburetor. A set of
ceramic-coated headers dumps into a custom-built Exhaust system featuring Flowmaster mufflers
that exhale through custom tips under the running boards. You'll also find
a well-laid-out wiring harness, lines and accessories, a big radiator with
an electric fan, and a dead-nuts-reliable carbureted intake system. A pair
of electric fans was added to the inner fender wells to help extract engine
heat from that tight engine compartment, a clever idea.
The interior is a great environment for getting down to the business of
driving and has clearly been designed for long-haul comfort. The charcoal
gray upholstery looks awesome with an almost OEM feel, which is not
surprising given the seats out of a late-model GM truck. The combination of
leather and suede on the seats is both comfortable and stylish, and this is
an interior you'll be happy to both sit in and admire. The center console
is custom fabricated from aluminum, and houses the remote switches for the
power windows, ignition and other electronic controls. The aluminum center
stack houses the Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo system and HVAC controls from
Vintage Air. A pair of simple round gauges from Classic Instruments is
housed in front of the Grant steering wheel, while a Sun tachometer is
perched on the dashboard up near the windshield for a vintage racer feel.
We have trailer queens, and if you want one, give us a call to check them
out. But rarely do we get a car that was actually built to drive like this
one was, while showing like a piece of jewelry. Sure, they're all cars and
they can all hit the road equally well, but the fellow who built this car
spent his money well and built it to perform on the street. He built a
reliable, powerful, fun bruiser that has already covered more than 3000
miles. If you're the kind of guy who likes to drive and enjoy his hardware,
you owe it to yourself to check out this fabulous Willys and see if you
don't agree with the builder that getting there is all the fun.

Custom built from the ground up to honor gassers of the early '60s, this
Outlaw '41 Willys features a one-off custom frame with a solid front axle
and leaf springs, built just for this project. The body is fiberglass, but
registered as a '41 Willys, and was finished to show standards. Power comes
from a 710 horsepower HEMI that runs on
93 octane pump gas, and offers a ton of vintage speed equipment including a
magnesium tunnel ram provided by Ronnie Sox. Inside, the red leather
interior is worlds nicer than anything you'd find in a real gasser, and the
chassis is loaded with chrome and polished aluminum. Detailed enough to win
trophies at just about any show, it's also fast enough to take home the
checkered flag at the strip.

The Petersen Crew Takes a Ride in The Wildest Hot Rod You've Ever Seen!
The parking structure at The Petersen Automotive Museum always has really
interesting cars show up, including this wild horseless carriage based on a
real Studebaker carriage. The entire drive train is located forward of the
pivot point. The middle wheels are the drive wheels. Throttle, brake, and
steering controls are all hydraulic. The pivot is a ball joint on a tubular
control arm with a coil-over shock!
