Description for Willys Coupe 1941

The 1941 Willys Coupe is an icon in the street rod scene. So when you can show up in a big bad red classic with a big bad supercharged 540 big block V8 pushing nearly 1,000 horsepower that should be enough, right? Well no. When you pay for premium, you get it, too. This is a carefully crafted vehicle to make sure that every inch reaffirms you're looking at one of the slickest builds we've seen in our showroom. This car also has the trophies to prove it, and has won multiple shows, even on a national level, please inquire for details.
The Tornado Red paint that's grabbing all of your attention is courtesy of a true investment in a professional hand and plenty of modern clearcoat. The result is a devilishly delicious finish that looks like you dipped your coupe in candy before coming to the car show. And you might just have to call this one Red Hots because those custom tri-color flames make this coupe look like it's ready to scorch the streets. Of course, it helps that this custom build started with a premium Dennis Taylor-built body on one of their extra durable chassis. But for this red devil, the details are what really count. The door handles are shaved and there's no superfluous chrome. That keeps your focus on the iconic electric shaver grille, teardrop headlights, and that huge air grabber popping out of the hood. It's butter-smooth in the rear where the sloping design instantly reminds you why the Willys coupe is an icon. Some cars try to hide their aggressive stance, but on this one, those swoopy fenders can barely contain it. The deep torque thrust wheels are there to give strength to where the massive 18-inch wide Mickey Thompson rubber meets the road... and that wheele bar really lets you know there a ton of power being fed to the rear.
Open the door, and the full red treatment is just as aggressive as the exterior. And even the trunk has been outfitted with this out-for-blood tidy setup. But as you look closer, you see this coupe is quite a comfortable place to conduct some speedy business. There was nearly $10K spent just on this eye-catching mix of leather and suede. You get comfortable low-back leather bucket seats. And in-between is a custom center console that houses the Hurst shifter, power window switches, and Pioneer stereo with modern conveniences like a USB input and Bluetooth. But this machine is no coddler. Once you grab the custom red and chrome sports steering wheel, and gaze at the full AutoMeter gauge package, we know your heart will begin to race even before you twist the key and hear this Willys roar.
We suggest grabbing some sunglasses before inspecting the engine bay. In fact, the only piece we can spot that doesn't have a chrome like finish are the color-matched valve covers. It's the kind of heavy investment that can win awards on its looks alone. But while the appearance is meant to draw people in, the full build is designed to blow their doors off. You're looking at 540 cubic-inch big block built by the race masters at Dart. And that's a Weiand 8-71 blower proudly sitting on top of the V8. This motor is a full build designed to handle a ton of extra power. That's why it has great performance components like a 139021 Crane Cam, Pro1 345 cylinder heads, aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans, and dual Demon 950 four-barrel carburetors. Oh yes, this is a monster machine, and it's allegedly producing around 1,000 horsepower! The long tube performance headers feed the dual side exhaust pipes. So you'll love dialing in the rumble next to your ear using the throttle and four-speed automatic w/overdrive. But more than just listen to this thunderous soundtrack; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see an ultra-clean chassis that doesn't even look like it traveled the 4,800 miles on this low-mileage build. You'll also spot the Mustang II-style independent front suspension with tubular A-arms, the strong four-link rear with Heidts coilovers, and the unbeatable stopping power of a performance four-wheel disc brake package.
Complete with build receipts, this is an amazing unbeatable street rod in every way from its stellar appearance to the big blower V8. You know how special this high-quality build is, so better get your hands on this one before it's gone. Call today!!!
