History 1933 - 1936 Willys, picture thread

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by WillysRule, Dec 5, 2010.

  1. I'm glad to see my name mentioned here. I sold all of my Willys bodies, sheet metal and parts when I went through a tough divorce in 1992. I still had my 2 sons, and the house. Life has priorities. I can not replace what I had unfortunately. But at 79 years old, a triple bypass in 2000, a double bypass in 2011, and now on kidney dialysis 3 days a week, I still get around and do what I can. I may be a little slower, and get tired easier, but so what, I am still here. My mind says that I am 35 years old, but my body tells me otherwise.

    What's going on with that front suspension? It wouldn't be a <GASP!> leaf spring suspended IFS would it?

  10. If that 1933 Willys is the last one that Chuck Finders built about 16 years ago, It was a coupe body that he got from me. The car came from Rhode Island. It was owned by a little old lady whose father bought it for her in 1933. I tried for years to buy the coupe, and was only able to buy it from her estate after she passed away. The coupe sat in the same falling down garage for many years. the roof had mostly fallen in, too. I took the coupe home to Connecticut on a single axle, un-sprung trailer. when I got to the car wash, most of the rusty parts were gone, scattered along the way. It was a straight body, one owner car.

  14. I am pretty sure that the original Dark Horse Willys 77 SWC coupe (later rebuilt into Finder's Traveler) was a '35/'36, not a '33. That is based on the door handles being the stubby later style and not the swoopy early ones.

    That is Jack Merkel in his steel 33 Willys running SWC. Doug beat Jack on this run but the run prior to this Merkel beat Montgomery and right after that Montgomery got the Ford Cammer. I think this was the 66 or 67 Indy Nationals. Merkel vs Montgomary.jpg
