    A Willys Coupe is REBORN! Looks great, it takes alot skill and patience to one bring back from the dead.

  8. I knew of one that came from a river bed in central Nebraska (about 20 years ago).
    I thought...why would you waste your time!!! How wrong I was!

    The "jigsaw" willys coupe gets a little structural support. Lot of lead in these cowl sections. The B-pillar was in three pieces and as rusty as possible but with a little metal replacement they came together pretty decent, it's always easy to weld rusty metal.

    Hey Jeff, the hinges look good, just like stockers. It's good to know someone makes these.

    Congratulations, you tackled a project that most people would have run from and are making it look easy. It just shows what can be done if you want it bad enough. You have some good Karma coming your way for sharing information on cars for sale. Keep up the good work it is looking like a willys coupe again!

    Hey Jeff wow !!! I haven't kept myself updated on your Coupe and I'm blown away at how far you've made it in such a short time ! Remember when modelkitbasher said you couldn't or wouldn't or whatever he said ? Anyway just wanted to say that you're the real deal man ! You used to call me a Willys king ! I'm nothin compared to you man !
    Now I have a pile I need to save too , unless some one takes it off my hands first .......
