And then there's the price! Bettter plan on a glass Willys coupe, as I bought and built my whole Austin for less than a bare '40-'41 Willys coupe shell would cost!
But the '55 Chevy is a big car, and a bit more affordable. You could get a running, driving '55 Chevy for what a Willys body costs!
No i mean to say add the suicide doors. That way you can make them open wide and fit your frame. I had a friend had one he paid nothing for it was converted to 4x4 for some reason it was cool. I think it had a big van 4x4 kit on it the tires were outside the frame and wheel wells.

I love the chevy II's myself. I got a line on a few rust buckets but looking for a clean one.
