The company has a very poor past, used to be Classic Motor Carriages or something similar. They changed names but I hear the sales tactics are the same. Lots of promises untill it comes down to delivery and customer service. Then its Excuses. Besides their bodies are not even close to the original stuff. If you put one of theirs beside a real rod you can really tell the difference.
There should be a detailed thread in the Knowledge Base, as this is not the first time their products have been questioned.

Agree- check previous posts- my brother built a Cobra from Street Beasts and had a very difficult time with service, empty promises, delayed shipping and poor fitting of components. He WAS able to build it, but without extra work, ingenuity and good fabrication skills he would not have gotten it together. Good Luck.

A couple of reviews in the Company Reviews board. They have a big promotional packet. I talked to them once or twice over 5 yrs ago. Strong sales technic made me leary and luckily I later saw poor reviews in some of the major mags.

Go to the search button above and type in the 41 willys or just willys. You will get more threads that include enormous amounts of infomation.

There are plenty other shops to check also. Like the others said, a lot of threads with great information to make all you decisions with a little confidence.

Take a look at "StreetRodder" mag of September 03, they have an article about a willys called Backdraft.
