Oh come on, Never considered it??
Would be a "Sedan-Delivery"....
Well, it does have cleaner lines than the panel truck. Personally I think the tall roofs are not as easy on the eyes. That with the shorter rear looks good.
Well my idea was this - for those who like panels & for those models Willys "coulda but didnt", does not a Sedan Delivery seem right? And it could be all steel... not that good metal work is cheap, but good fiberglass is not either! Besides (restorers please try and understand) the most plentiful & cheapest bodies I see are Sedans.... Looks cool to me.
Yes, a very nice car. I recently met it's owner, Dave thru a customer of mine. Great guy!
The Sedan Del. has been done befor. I've seen a white one at the COBO show in Detroit a few times. I beleive it was a race car.
Then there was a company that made the 33 Vicky in glass that was around for awhile also.
Ok, it's time to look at another pickup..
Here is a few pics of Jim Oddys New AA/GS 1933 Willys
it runs with the Nostalgia AA/Gassers
The Junk Yard Dog Jim Oddy's AA/GS pre AA /GS
These photos were on gassermadness.com but the site is now gone - this is what I managed to salvage - sorry about the small size....
Here's another converted sedan - gulp....
Jim's sedan is pretty nasty. That is one mean chop. I bet it'll be a runner.
Where is that at, Jim just doesn't want to retire. Former Elma resident here.
Sort of looks like post 1305 and 1306 are the same car, the latter post actually a pic taken during the build process. Post 1307 is just gross though. The only thing that still looks like a Willys is the front fenders and the belst line molding at the front of the doors-sort of. The old glass race bodies looked more accurate.
The white one in post 1304 has decent body lines though.
Now Oddys car... It is a cool race car for sure. But it takes some work to make a 35-36 4dr sedan into a 33-34 2dr sedan!!! It looks evil with the stretched doors and hard chop.
Mark it will be flying Trouble
Speaking of Willys Model 77s, any interest in a set of model 77 wire wheels?
I am. either pm me or reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
also interested in finding some 1933 solid wheels.
thanks waiting on your reply.
Check out that "CP Piston" sticker.., thats right, thats right.
Oh yea it on there !!!!
there are a few 2 door sedans out there not a lot but they are out there
Which Willys never built....
Weasel with all due respect "So what" it's not like the guy on here that claims to have a "rare set of mis-spelled Ford hub caps". I know the didn't make any. You know they didn't make any. If your ever in the Hudson Valley area of NY stop by and have a beer.
They were going to someone has copys of the plans from Willys so guys made there own they look cool
Anyone have the literature on the 33-36 style '99' models?
Never mind, a quick google search showed a bunch including a link back to page 40 on this thread. coulda/shoulda done that first I guess.
Mark see what I mean it is Flying !! Trouble Look for it at the Nostalgia AA/Gassers races
Hey Trouble hows it going,Jims sedan looks Wild ive just 2 doord a 33 ill send you over some pics cheers Wayne
Wow, look at thing go. Looks like it launches level. I wasn't expecting the leaf spring front end from Oddy, but that's a cool touch. That's gotta be the meanest 33 Sedan since the James Boys.
