Default Willys Gasser build pics....from the 60's

I thought you guys might enjoy these pics taken by Dave McDannel in the 60's while he was building his Willys coupe called "Orange plus".
He raced it with an injected 482ci big block chevy up til 1975. Dave was a CHP patrolman from So Cal. I bought this car in November of 84 and ran it on the street for several years with a tunnel rammed 327 and 4 speed. I got these pics from Dave back in the 80's.

Fantastic pictures. That's what drag racing used to be all about. When everybody built their cars in their own backyard. What happened to the car? Please don't tell me it got turned into a slammed and tubbed bracket car. That Willys is the only way those cars should ever look. By the way, my own '55 uses Kellison fiberglass.
