1941 Willys Custom Coupe (Blown) 468 CI Chevy, Dual Quads - Hot Rod For Sale (Click Here)

Description: Here's a heck of a sale ad: '41 Willys coupe, screaming red, 8-71 blown Rat, sorted chassis and a plush interior. That ought to be enough to convince anyone! Read on, though, if you're one of those tough customers—you won't be disappointed!

Start with the PPG Flame Red job on the Outlaw body. Miles deep and arrow straight this car looks like it needs a speeding ticket while standing still. There's a contrasting turquoise pinstripe running down the sides, reproduction Willys badges on the fenders, and not much else. Of course, that's kinda discounting the HUGE BDS hood scoop and dual polished Holleys poking through the hood and the bright polished Weld Rodlites at all four corners, but we'll get to that. The grille and headlights are reproduction pieces up front and reproduction taillights out back. Todd Saunders smoothed, gapped and painted the panels with extreme precision. 15x6" Front runners wearing 7.50x27x15 M/T Sportsmans up front do the guiding while 21.5x33x15 Sportsman Pros on 15x10" wheels provide forward bite. This is a HOT car with just the right stance!

Pop the hood and set the prop rod—you'll want time to digest that 468ci Chevy engine, dressed to the nines and sporting the massive BDS blower. Dished, forged pistons swing on reconditioned factory rods and a factory steel crank while a Comp Cams Xtreme Energy bumpstick operates the valves. Ported and polished heads wear polished billet valve covers while billet pulleys and polished brackets add sparkle. Cooling duties are handled by the polished aluminum radiator mounted horizontally under the cabin with integrated thermostat controller for the electric fan and a high flow water pump up front. Taylor wires in billet brackets grab electrons from the Mallory distributor and MSD 6AL box. Dual 750 Holleys up top mix the fuel, a modified TH400 transmission with a TCI converter and trans brake handle motive forces and block hugger headers and 3" pipes take care of the exhaust. No dyno sheets exist for the car, but it doesn't take too big of an imagination to see this is a 650+hp car!

Underneath, the high quality, smoothed Outlaw frame hosts plenty of top shelf components. An Outlaw IFS front setup wears Aldan coil-overs and GM discs and a Mustang II rack and pinion setup. Power flows down a custom driveshaft to the narrowed, built and 4 link suspended Ford 9" with 3.50 gears out back. Another pair of Aldans are here, along with a set of Aerospace Components billet calipers and brake discs. The floor pans were treated the same as the topside with smooth red paint everywhere. Side exit exhaust pipes will go unnoticed by anyone...but on a car like this, isn't that the point?

Stichmasters at Portage Trim in Ravenna, OH stitched up the high class taupe leather interior from headliner to carpet. '97 Viper seats are far more supportive than traditional 'rod seats, Auto Meter Pro Comp Ultra Lites in the dash and one off center console give you information on everything from fuel level to boost pressure while custom molded door panels match the headliner. High quality leather covers the seats, the door panels with integrated armrests, the firewall and the rest of the passenger compartment. An Ididit tilt column painted Flame Red holds a Billet Specialties polished aluminum and matching leather wheel along with Auto Meter shift lights; Lokar pedals and shifter do what they do on the floor and in the console. A modern Chrysler twin map light dome light is in the ceiling, and there's a modern Mopar radio in the Outlaw dash—what other brand would do other than the company who owns the rights to the Willys name?

The trunk's just as nice with matching carpeting and a leather accent covering the 15 gallon fuel cell between the tubs mimicking the headliner. The battery has a nice leather cover, too—no tricks missed here!

Massive power, attitude for miles, fit and finish second to none all wrapped up in the classic Willys shape—this is wild, world class car! Not weighed down by "me too" or trendy components this is a 'rod that'll stand the test of time as well as it'll turn heads!
