1933 Willys Coupe

About 7 years ago my brother Jim & I drove our Model A's to Columbus Ohio's Goodguys, Jim sold his coupe so I decided to sell mine, It sold on Sunday.
While looking for another car to buy I found a vendor selling 33 Willys Coupe's ( Fiberglass Fabrications ), put a down payment on one and they said it would take about 3 months to make.
Three months later we were going to the James Dean Run in Fairmont Indiana. We used my brothers truck and a borrowed a trailer, we Loaded Rogers 26 T on the trailer and drove to Fiberglass Fabrications in Fort Wayne Indiana, Unloaded the T loaded the Willys on the trailer and left the car and trailer there, drove the 26 T and truck to the Dean Run. On the way back we picked up the Willys & trailer and drove home.
The Willys took about 6 months for us to complete. We put in a 355 cubic inch Blown Small Block Chevy built by Gardner Racing Engines, The transmission is 400 TCI followed up by a 9 in. Ford Positraction rear end.
The chassis is Fiberglass Fabrication with Mustang II IFS. And the rear suspension is coil over .
The body has suicide doors with power locks & power windows, while the interior is Tan Leatherette & Tweed by ( Seats & More). The paint was sprayed by Paul's Auto body with 3 Stage Mustang Red.
I raced the Willys at the Thompson Nostalgia Gasser Meet. On the first run the car made a right turn narrowly missing the wall and all of the next runs were straight down the track.
The Willys has been to Goodguys Columbus, Wooster, The Cleveland Autorama and many local Cruises.
