Thanks, everyone. I am making slow progress, but it's a cold and rainy day anyway, perfect for just working with the naked styrene.

Top came off without too much drama:

Every time I look at these wheels I see mud!

From this angle, this thing almost looks like a VW Beetle.

As I mentioned earlier, I am using all the parts from the gasser kit, except for the wheels and a few engine parts.

Thanks, Ira. Working on a roll cage after I get back home from work. I spent some time designing it.

Stay tuned in for more.

This is all pretty much box stock except for a few frame reinforcements, the tires, and some after market parts for the engine.

I have always wanted to build a big tall Willys.


Ah, I didn't recognize the suspension because the Willys I am working on is the street rod. So this must have started life as the gasser...
