33 willys wip

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Just adding another to the collection. Started with a 33 willys sedan as a glue bomb bought on ebay along with another 11 models that are near the same condition. Unfortunately didnt take any pics in my haste in stripping it down. Was missing the front springs, rear springs were broken, induction was missing and painted in what looked like house paint applied with a brush. After stripping made a new set of front springs and modified a quick change rear end and springs to replace the nine inch and broken springs, also added some wheelie bars from the parts box. Got the body up to scratch, filled in the roof, a couple coats of primer and then a couple of coats of satellite brown was sprayed. Rubbed back with 1500 then 2000 grit and added some parts box decals. Have used the base of the 427 motor and added my own hilborn fuel injection and parts box headers. Still heaps to do will update as i go along. Cheers and thanks for looking.
