1953 Aero Ace Willys
1 Attachment(s)
I recently picked up a 1953 Aero Ace Willys 4 door. I trying to find parts for a restoration. So far, I'm finding parts very hard to come by. I remember driving a 1952 2 dr for several weeks in 1954 and remember being impressed with the car. When this 53 showed up on eBay, I had to pick it up. It seems most people have never seen one before in the area where I now live. SW Colorado.
I'm also working on a 1960 Nash Metropolitan in my spare time.
I'm retired and have a good deal of time to 'play' with my toys now. Any information as to sources of parts for either of these cars would be greatly appreciated.

I too have a 53 aero ace
I am in the process of redoing it
Not sure if it will end up original or resto rodded
It depends on a veiw things. I want to drive it .
Finding the nessassary parts to do it how well it runs when I get it going
It is pretty complete and I'm having a hard time cutting it. Don't get me wrong I love Rods ( Have a 29 2dr Hudson Rodded )Can be seen on Webshots ConroysToys
I'm Looking for the trunk script "AeroAce" The "w" for the trunk, a cap for a six cylinder "f" head,autolite dist.,Tail light lenses, and parking light lenses.
I could use a list of places to get parts.
I'll post some pictures when I figure out how (pretty new at the computor)
