41 Willys from the movie "Hot Rod"

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by CadillacKid, Nov 22, 2006.

  1. HAMB'r Drumyn29 bought one of those cars' derelict chassis last year. We think it's of the now race car Willys. Old school parts and build evidence present at time of purchase. Not sure if still intact or used for some of his awesome Willys projects or not .... pretty damned cool regardless.

    If you can get me pics I can likely get the chassis authenticated by my uncle. It would make sense that it remained intact as Mullins had no use for it. Anything unique in its construction would be instantly recognizable to my uncle.

    needed something to decorate the bland garage door behind the build area, so my wife painted this on the door

    I know...tracked down Mullins on Facebook and we compared pics of both cars. His is definitely not my uncle's old one.
