    Looks like it could be my old truck completely re done.

    No definitely not 1933 willys 77. Mine started out like this. (can't open image, says file too big)
    I'll send you a message.
    I got a friend of mine to reduce image size.

    That doesn't look so rough to me. My 77 arrived wadded up into the back of a pickup truck.

  5. If you look closer you'll notice it's on a right hand drive truck frame from a Willys Jeep panel delivery truck. The steering box is sticking out through the grille shell. I bought a bunch of the parts off of it when it was in the "Tin Man's Garage" shop. I passed on the front end as it was really rough.

    Is it just my perspective or is the beautiful Prock and Howell car in post #2736 a stretch wheelbase car? If it is, I wonder if it's a Dennis Taylor body? I have one of those for sale as a roller if anyone is interested. PM me if you are.

    It would be a really unique car to finish, but I already have a couple other project cars and it comes down to time and money, especially at age 67.

  12. That car was built in the 1960's. It has a Logghe chassis, it's a funny car. The whole body tilts up. Pretty sure there were no Dennis Taylor bodies in the 60's

    Thanks. The Prock and Howell car's a beauty and taking the photo with it standing on the wet surface just makes it stand out even more.

    RE: Dennis Taylor....I've found some things on the internet about him, but not a whole lot specific to Willys. Is there a website somewhere that my searches haven't found where I could find out more about what he did? I found that he was in Arkansas, and possibly sold his molds but haven't found a trace of them still being offered. I'm just speculating (more like a wild guess) that my Willys body and chassis was built maybe 12-15 years ago. Would that have been a time that he was active producing bodies?

    Thanks.

  14. From what I remember I started hearing the Dennis Taylor name as far as Willys bodies in the late 1990's early 2000's

    Thanks again. I guess the age estimate on my 'glass '33 stretch Willys body and frame might be a bit low, but who knows? I guess estimating an age on it might be more accurate to think 15+ years.

    I’m not sure the exact timeline but Dennis sold the molds to Midwest Willy’s Reproductions. Bill Lewis 217-257-2057

    One of the cleanest and most beautiful Willys around at the time. I saw this car after Jim had the top chopped, that was around 73.

    Some I found in my files. This was Jack's Steel 33 Willys with the engine from his record holding B/GS 39 Willys coupe. He ran it only 1 year till the Glass 33 chopped top BBC car was built. The steel car's claim to fame is that it beat Ohio George at the US National in Indy, I think that was 66.
