You are a willys magnet, they are attracted to you .
Rusty Willys, yes.
Glad you picked it up. I didn't want anymore projects but seen potential at that price. Also it was almost next door. Congrats.
Wait till Anglia /Prefects start following you home also. The shop gets small fast. Could be worse though. Enjoy the dream brother.
My heap o crap arrived!
I started preparing the sedan for the body swap.
I think I see a coupe slowly forming. Hopefully I can do the body swap this weekend.
Without a doubt, it will be a gasser!
I see a coupe!

"Life keeps throwing parts at me..."
Cool stuff, d29!
Yeah, I wanted it to, but, seller never posted more pics like he said he would when I messaged about it last February. Would of just drove out to look at it, however, when you're 800 miles away pulling a trailer it's too far to drive incase there were any surprises, been down that road before.
Maybe I should think outside the box and build a radical coupe. I've never liked the 37-38 front but this guy cut into the headlights and fenders a little as well as the rear fenders for a nice change.
Or maybe it's lipstick on a pig.
I like the 37-38 front if the headlights are converted. There are some out there that now have 47-53 chevy pickup headlights. They are larger and are recessed back a few inches from stock. It makes the world of difference to me.
I actually stole some time today while the wife was with the kid.
I removed the IFS and robbed parts from another frame that I have.
I'm still not sure how I feel about the 37 front but I guess i'll cut into it and see if my attitude changes.
I have always loved Cragars. Your project, but if I get a vote I say 40-42 nose.
I'm thinking 41
Plan " B ' please,no street rod. HRP
Always wanted one of these.
I sure am glad I didn’t find one 20 yrs ago cause I would have made it a street rod. I’d be kickin my own ass about now.
My good friend want to use my 37 front fenders and hood for his shop awning and I found a 41 front end, so it looks like I'm building a 41 coupe.
Always fun to watch your projects take shape! Speaking of odd headlights, these are hard to beat. Bob
37 kid. What are they from??
On second thought they don't look all that bad on a Traditional Gasser. Bob
stitching it together
Is it just a reflection in the 5th photo or have the tin worms been busy under the back window?
