Sensational, Show-Stopping 1941 Willys Coupe
New to our Benicia showroom is this beautiful 1941 Willys 2 Door Coupe with incredible Lemon Ice Yellow paint, hand painted red/orange flames and a Caramel leather interior. You’ll find an awesome 1957 Chrysler 392 cid Hemi V-8 engine under the hood bored .30 over with Ross 8.1 pistons, aluminum heads, an Engle cam, a GMC 671 blower, an Accel 7th generation EFI system, a MSD Electronic Ignition and a Turbo 400 automatic transmission with a B&M shifter, plus far too many other premium accessories to list. This incredible, one of a kind Willys produces over 700 horsepower and it is one of the most amazing classics you’ll see this year.
Featured in Kit Car Builder Magazine in December 2004
The current owner of this 1941 Willys Coupe took possession in 2005 shortly after it underwent a complete frame-off restoration from the ground up. He informs us that it’s the original 1941 Willys frame that’s been boxed and cross framed, then built up with a Mustang II front suspension with Coilovers and a Ford 9” narrowed rear end with 4.11 gears. No expense was spared anywhere in this build and it received a brand new Antique & Collectible Autos body with six coats of professional paint. You’ll also find customizations like shaved door handles with door poppers, Vintage A/C, an awesome JVC stereo system with a Legacy amp and high-end autometer gauges amongst the high end custom leather interior.
Additionally, this 1941 Willys Coupe is autographed by none other than K. S. Pittman, the man himself who made racing Willy’s cool back in the day. This desirable classic gained so much publicity back in 2004 it was featured in Kit Car Builder magazine, which documents the entire build down to the high amp alternator and the Be Cool aluminum radiator with dual electric fans.
Outstanding Build Quality w/ Over 700 Horsepower
In terms of its present condition, this 1941 Willys Coupe shows no discernable signs of wear other than a few slight blemishes in the exterior paint. The body lines are incredible with a mirrored finish amongst the subtle chrome work, while the ultra-premium leather interior could still pass for new condition. Everything from the custom leather to the gauges to the carpeting and the tilt-wheel steering column are flawless. The fully chromed engine compartment is virtually flawless as well.
Out on the open road, this ’41 Willys is a true terror with world class acceleration and just as impressive handling. The quality of this build cannot be overstated since every possible component is top of the line. The motor sounds phenomenal and it shifts like a modern sports car. You won’t find a more impressive muscle car anywhere outside the quarter mile drag strip.
Signed Trunk Lid by Willys Racing Legend K. S. Pittman

This example is easily a Best in Show candidate on virtually any stage and the asking price doesn’t even begin to cover the build costs. It’s an absolute steal at the current asking price and an outstanding investment for one lucky collector.
