The 1941 Willys Coupe is an icon in the street rod scene. But this one is playing on a different level, because when you pay for premium, you get it, too. The 700 horsepower big block V8, amazing paintwork, strong chassis and custom interior all let you know this is a carefully crafted vehicle that's fully prepared and thoughtful build.
The paint alone can attract a crowd and keep them captivated. The official name is Dracula Ghost Purple Multi-Color, but most people will just shorten it to ""Wow."" That's because this is a cohesive custom layout for different shades of purple. And the application of orange pinstriping is an artist's touch laid down with the kind of precision that would make NASA jealous. And because it has all been cleared over, the sunlight flows evenly over the full sculpture. Of course, it helps that this custom build started with a premium Outlaw body on their extra durable chassis. And while the first impression is stunning, the presentation goes well beyond paint and body. The door handles are shaved and there's no superfluous chrome. That keeps your focus on the iconic electric shaver grille and teardrop headlights. Flush-mounted taillight and brake light keep it butter-smooth in the rear where the sloping design instantly reminds you why the Willys coupe is an icon. Some cars try to hide their aggressive stance, but on this one, those swoopy fenders can barely contain it. The 17-inch billet wheels in the rear are so deep that they instantly let you know this one is bringing serious power to the pavement.
The remote door openers are your gateway to a full custom interior that's built for both speed and comfort. The exterior purple and orange return as the colors for the custom carpeting (even the trunk receives this treatment.) This bold color is now joined by a luxurious two-tone leather and suede tan. You get comfortable low-back leather bucket seats. And in-between is a custom-contoured center console that houses the power window switches and B&M ratchet shifter " so it's equal parts luxury and performance. That feeling continues as you slip behind the billet steering wheel. The full mirrored dash houses your AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer, provisions for R134a air conditioning, and the full AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauge setup. Plus, the large AutoMeter tach with shift light mounted under the dash lets you know how serious this machine is even before you hear the motor roar.
Chrysler is the keeper of the Willys name and history, so you know they were extra thoughtful with this build when they gave it Mopar power. Of course, it's also a terrific idea any time to add a performance-built 528 cubic-inch Hemi V8. The masters at Muscle Motors created this polished and fuel-injected powerhouse that completely fills the engine bay. It's rated at 700 horsepower, which makes this a serious contender the moment you twist the key. But it takes more than just a monster motor to bring it to the streets, so take so time to look at the fortified chassis. The strong Torqueflight A727 three-speed automatic transmission feeds a Ford 9-inch rear. And a triangulated four-link rear with adjustable coilovers keeps the rear wheel firmly on the road. Plus, as you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see this clean build also has other great features like the tubular A-arm front end and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes.
This is an amazing unbeatable street rod in every way " from its artful appearance to the big power V8. You know how special this high-quality build is, so better get your hands on this one before it's gone. Call today!!!
