                The paint combination of this Willys is absolutely "Gorgeous".

                This car is a former Summit Racing Catalog Cover Car !

 

   This was Dick's 5th Willys.....  and as Dick says " There is nothing like a Willys" !

                 That's the way it is pure and simple...  and I agree!

Here is another beautiful '41 coupe previously built and owned by my friend Dick Robbins.  This coupe is comprised

of a Dennis Taylor body and chassis  with a big block Injected Chevy.  It also has a 700R4 transmission followed by a  

9" ford with a  Fab center section with 3.50 gears.  This is Dick's 4th Willys that he has built.  A Great looking car !!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

        Here is a Willys Truck that Dick had before his Green Willys Coupe. Another nice ride for sure!
