    1935 Standard Coupe - again wire wheels and crank out windshield make it a 1935 and painted not chrome windshield frame and single wiper makes it a standard....

    Don't care how many AACA shows I've been too, I have YET to see a 77 or '39 and up restored Willys in the flesh. I must be going to the wrong shows. LOL! Shoot only '40-'41 Willys I've ever seen have been plastic.
     
  3. We've got a few around here(twin cities)...sold my '38 4-door stocker a few years back, but that grey '41 coupe that was on Ebay 10 days ago, and another guy's '41 sedan ( car from a museum that closed) are still here. We also have a guy with a couple of nice original Aussie cars, including a beautiful '33 sedan phaeton (right hand drive). And another friend has a very nice '39 sedan that runs and drives. All the owners of these cars have Willys street rods as well! Nice to see the stockers that survived.

    Do a search for Ron Ladeley's 1941 model 441 coupe. In my opinion it is the penultimate stock restored Willys.

    Here's that made up all steel coupe - made from four sedans in Oz. Note the suicide doors and the Aussie closed Model 77 windshield with pointed lower corners....

    By contrast to the period photo of the 1933 Aussie sedan above, Here's a 1934 Aussie built Holden bodied sedan with the sharp cornered windshield - note the trick fender mounted running lights!!!

    It seems that most New Zealand imported Willys were from the US. By contrast here is the Aussi Holden's bodied sedan for 1936 with integrated trunk. as previiously noted the Holden bodied Willys for 1936 were very different animals than the US built cars of that year. The Holden bodied cars in 1936 were touted for their all steel "Safety roof"....

    Not sure if I posted this before, but you can never have too many Model 77s! Late 1936 Standard coupe (single windshield wiper, single tail light). The late production (running into January 1937) Willys Model 77s featured 1937 type solid wheels rather than the artillery type with the holes. This one has the rare seven hole early 1937 wheel which later went to four hole wheels until the four bolt axles were discontinued during 1939. This car may have been retrofitted as the spare wheel is the 'production' 1936 Artillery type, or maybe it had the spare wheel stolen and the owner was unable to find another seven hole solid wheel. I posted photos on the 1937 to 1942 Willys thread of an original two tone grey 1937 coupe I ran across last year while on my travels which had the same seven hole wheels and the owner confirmed that these were original to the car which his dad had bought new....

    Finally for today a couple of shots showing the very different look of the Australian bodied 1936 Willys 77 sedan. Far more modern feel with it's rounded styling....

  15. Wow...great pictures...especially the sedan pictures...your resources are amazing. I've seen so very many willys pictures over the years, but there are many that you post that I have never seen. My journeys include Ladley's place, and Abe Suderman's as well. You can keep them coming...I thoroughly enjoy them!

    Well okay another one for today. 1936 Panel Delivery (the lack of spare wheel cut out below the rear door denotes it as a 1936 - with 1934 front end. The rear bumper looks like a 1937 Ford Sedan Delivery item. Note the 1970s 'Keep on truckin' artwork on the rear door - peace man....

    Time for a few more from my archives - here's a 1936 Willys panel Delivery body I sold a few years back. It had 11,000 original miles on it and when new was used for a newspaper delivery round in DC. The delivery guy went off to WW II and was MIA in 1942. His widow just stored it until it was sold to the second owner in 1976. When he bought it, it still had a stack of 1941 newspapers in the back!

    Here's some build photos I took a dozen years ago of the Terry Baker '33 featured elsewhere in this thread and the Rodders Journal, built by Art & Mike Chrisman. This was when it was having metalwork done at the late Art Barker's shop....

    1936 Tourer with body by Holdens Body Builders - note that the windshield appears to be the same windshield used on Australian Holden's built closed Willys from 1933-35 only turned upside down....

    1935 pickup with 1933 De Luxe steel front clip - incorrectly captioned as a 1933. The pickup was not built until 1935....

    Similar treatment to the pickup above, but this time on a 1935 panel delivery - again a body style not put into production until 1935. I posted this earlier in the thread but this may be a better quality photo....

    I have posted some more photos in the 1937 to 1942 Willys picture thread for those of you who are following both. So here are a few more for this thread to even out the balance. Here is a Dutch ad for the 1935 Willys....

    This photo shows the correct shape of the factory pickup rear window with square - not rounded corners. Note the very rare roadster in the background of this shot....
