I like it as I'm a fan of mid-60's gassers. Great job on that Willys!

Nice looking Willys. That paint is spot on, perfect shade of blue and it sure looks Smooth & Shiny. Those Austin decals fit perfectly on this as well. Excellent build overall, count me in as another Gasser Fan. Keeps me going with my NHRA Legal '41 Plymouth Gasser with a Flathead.

Looks great. Love the different metal colors used on the engine. Your wife is probably saying - honey have you seen my blue nail polish ?
