All aluminum Willys...... WOW!

Its amazing what you can do with an English wheel, a sheet metal brake, and a lot of talent.





At least he's powering it with a HEMI......

There was a young guy in Utah who built an all aluminum Willys body, then sold it when he was done. He was in his mid 20's when he did it. Wonder if this is the same car?

If that is the same Car (as the one built in Utah), I've seen it in person, and Chris did a fantastic job-he graduated from the UVU Street Rod Class (great class, btw), still has a shop in Orem, and is doing well-

Here is a build Thread where Chris built his Willy's-

Simple, (as I sit in my easy chair at the computer), he masked them off, then polished the aluminum then unmasked.

When you are good at something, it looks easy and fast. I would bet he made this body in less time than it takes an unexperienced guy to cover an original body with bondo and get it into primer!

all aluminum Willys

My favorite car of all time is a 41 Willys gasser, I saw the thread an thought it was a factory, ill fitting, kit car, I am absolutly amazed. I saw one of my Doctors last week and he always ask me about my hotrod truck, then hr said you know my favorite all time car is a Willys coupe like thr Stones Wood and Cook gasser. I had to see him again yesterday, I had a 1/24th scale diecast Willys in the shop and I carried it and gave it to him and told him it was mt favorite also. He is going to mask it off, scuff the paint and paint it steel blue and have someone letter it for him, small world.
