Blood Sweat and Tears coupe as street car in late 70’s thru early 80’s
Anyone have any info on this car? It was sold and was told it went to Illinois around 64 65 and was repainted a bright metal flake silver and kept the same name. It was a local car I'd like to know what happened to it. The name was quicksilver
I know it's been posted a few times over the years but no leads. The first photo shows it racing SWC at Indy at the nationals.
Found out the car raced at indy in 69 and 70 with owners donnie jewell and Fred wehmeyer from Murphysboro Illinois not sure what happened to it after that since both Fred and donnie have pasted away.
I know what you are going through Dharrell I am looking for my old 36 Willys sedan and have leads to Apache Junction AZ owned by Gary Budwick and have gotten nothing. I searched all the Hamb members from Apache Junction AZ , 5 of them and no one has been on her in 12 years. It seems like if you move there you disappear. Pictures as last seeing 92.
This Willys PU was for sale on Hamb for sale in June of 2020. I knew this truck as I helped to build it in the early 60's and was friends with the guy who raced it. The family sold it to a guy in CT and he evidently sold it. I reached out to him but he did not respond to my question. If anyone recognizes it or knows of it let me know.
Wow LB if I ever got mine finished that is what it would have looked like only difference mine was a 34, different side panels.
That is a beautifully detailed car. I do like the horizontal louvers in the '34 hood side panels though.
Wish mine had '34 side panels.
Frenchtown when I bought my car from Nichthebandit around 73 it came with a 36 front end. I checked out the #'s and found it was a 34. I bought a beautiful steel 33 nose from a guy in MD and proceeded to look for 34 side panels. Many people offered to by my panels but I was only interested in an even up swap and finally someone came through. That nose went out west to Weasel I understand the body went to England. I also like the horizontal louvers more than the doors.
Funny thing - I also bought my '33 (ahem, actually a '36) from Nick. It came with a glass '33 nose.
A repeat of my favorite Willis.
Bob Rothenbergs' beauty.
Bob's another guy who dealt with/had a lot of Willys. That under construction picture is pretty old.
Found an artist to draw up my idea of what my car would have looked like. Bruce Kaiser drew this up.
