For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/m8qjx2r Shy of a '32 Ford, few cars can claim the hot-rodding history of the 1941-1942 Willys. It's a car so popular that, even today, the competition to create the World's Wildest Willys continues. Visually, this 1941 coupe is a contender for that title. Completed in 2012 and driven only 190 miles since, this is a trophy case waiting to happen - all it needs is someone to show it. For over 25 years, Outlaw Performance in Avonmore, Pennsylvania has been a leading supplier of custom fiberglass bodies and this spectacular coupe is a testament to just how well they've honed their craft. The outermost layer has been shot with a radiant coat of Candy Blue Metallic from the House of Kolors line and, in a world of red, yellow, and orange Willys, blue is a strong choice. The impressive paintwork is accented by hand-painted black, gray, and white pinstripes that form a grid pattern. It just wouldn't be a modern Willys build without a big block bulging through the hood. This coupe delivers on that front with a blown 502ci V8 fully dressed for show. The foundation is a GM Performance crate engine topped with factory heads, a polished 6-71 blower, dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors, and a chrome shotgun intake. Completed by an HEI ignition and ceramic coated headers, this is a serious motor all around. Underneath, a 2x4 box tube chassis with a Heidts Mustang II front clip serves as the foundation, rounded out by tubular A-arms, a 4-link, and coilovers all around. In the center, a tried and true TH400 3-speed automatic takes car of shifts, spinning power back to a Currie 9-inch center section stock with a limited slip and 4.10 gears. A manual rack-and-pinion keeps steering direct while giant Wilwood disc brakes rein in the 502 with ease. At the corners, Mickey Thompson wheels and tires tuck neatly into the fender wells. At first glace, the interior presents itself as a fairly straightforward affair but that first impression is deceiving. From the new carpet to the Procar seats, all soft surfaces look and feel great. Entertainment is provided by a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/DVD head unit with a 7-inch touch screen with Bluetooth connectivity and integrated navigation. Other highlights include Stewart Warner gauges, a polished tilt column, and custom door panels with stainless inserts. With its Candy Blue Metallic paint, ultra-low ride height, massive wheels, and polished shotgun intake on display, this car is a visual one-two punch sure to gain fans at any event it enters. Best of all, it backs those looks up with a serious powertrain ready to rumble at the turn of a key. If you've been entertaining the idea of building a Willys, save yourself a year worth of garage time. Call, click, or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for more information!
