Just another Willys

Recommended Posts

Recently had yet another crazy build idea that has resulted in this Willys. I’ve no idea what class it would or could compete in, it was just built for fun. I figured that not every racer had access to a coupe body, so why not a decommissioned military jeep instead.

Hogans Heroes body and rear half of chassis mated to the front half of a AMT ‘33 Willys frame and suspension. Rear axle is narrowed Matchbox ‘55 nomad as is the engine/trans, seat and part of the floor. There are parts pack slicks and parts box bits & bobs.

It will never win any prizes but I really like it, hope you guys do too.

Thanks guys, in hindsight perhaps this should be in the drag section - maybe admin would like to move it across if need be.

Hard not to like an old Jeep and the "Gasser" treatment makes it even cooler!

Very interesting build. I recall seeing several Jeeps converted into Drag Cars thru the years.

No headlights, no second seat, and I think the wheelbase might be too short for a gasser. NHRA would no doubt put it into Altered. B)
