Newstalgia Motors Presents Car No. 00179:
1941 Willys Coupe
This Coupe has found a new home!
However, we'd be happy to locate another one just for you.
Starting with an Outlaw body and chassis, this '41 Willys Coupe has had hundreds of hours and no expense spared on the build making everything fit to give it that right "Bad to the Bone" look. Meticulous attention to the stunning paint and detail throughout makes this a multiple show winner and crowd favorite at every showing (Dupont "Top Gun" Feature and Calendar car; Portland Rod & Custom Show "Outstanding Paint"; Salem Invitational "Best of Show"; Pleasanton Goodguys "Bad to the Bone"); just to name a few as well as featured in numerous magazines. With less than 500 miles on the clock, the owner finds himself retiring and another project forces the sale of this incredibly beautiful car that is offered at more than $100K under the cost of the build!
- Exterior: The flawless Purple paint complemented with Candy Yellow blending to Orange flames is striking. The ultra-smooth fit and finish abounds with unique touches like the flush "W" taillights, marker lights, turn signal and 3rd brake light. The hood and trunk are operated by small polished aluminum hydraulic rams - very trick one of a kind set up.
- Interior: Beautiful White Leather, electric seats with lumbar adjustments, etc. make for very comfortable drives up and down the freeway or cruising the main drag; while sounding like a Willys should. "W's" are custom sculpted into the headliner and trunk cover. The dash and center console feature custom AutoMeter gauges.

MSD 6-BTM Boost Timing Master ignition. This engine makes 760 plus dynoed horsepower! There is more hp available with minor tuning and set-up changes.
