Brought the car home in the back of my pickup. My wife was less than pleased. She wondered where the rest of the car was.
This car was a very long project. It was put on hold many times to do other builds for customers to finance the project and to spend time with family. I simply couldn't afford a better steel car as most know steel coupes demand big money. I have been doing metal fabrication for a long time so I actually enjoyed the challenges the car presented. A build of this size requires help from other talented folks in the business. Few people can do EVERYTHING. I have developed many relationships with machine shops, upholstery shops and fellow car builders which made getting things done possible. I have attempted to tell the story as the car came together. My intent was to build a gasser style Willys that is safe to drive and has minimal modern features. I like the Spartan (plain) interiors yet added many vintage details and parts. I have done some drag racing in the past and like to do the occasional 1/4 mile blast. I hope you like what you see and welcome suggestions as I never stop learning from the many talented members of the HAMB. Dave
