Thanks to Bryan M. for the name. A topless 41 Willys with a slight attitude problem. Need I say more? And Jim S, this one is going to be shiny. Yes sir!

Got the chassis cleaned up, welded and glued, reinforced, etc . . . the chassis took some work, sure, but not as much as the body:

And I just cut off the top and made it TOPLESS, thus part of the "wild" in the WILLYS GONE . . . :D:lol:;):P

I'm using two big carbs and two huge velocity stacks. That should help the look.

And this one is going to be painted in TESTOR's "Lime Ice" lacquer, if all goes well.

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.

Stay tuned in for more progress. I don't see why it couldn't be shiney and have a little mud respresentin'.

The chassis is going to be mildly weathered and the engine is going to be new though. Just creating varieties in the finishes.
