    I've posted this on two other threads but can anybody identify this Willys? The pictures are pretty bad but they are screen shots from a DVD. the car ran Santa Ana Ornge County Airport Dragstrip back in 50's. the numbers on the door are pretty hard too read i'm not sure if it's three or four numbers. 0001 or 001? I can't read the first number.

    It's from chapter 2 in this DVD if anybody has it, it's old 8mm film so the screen shots are pretty poor.:(

    Just out of Curiosity. It's on my Santa Ana Orange county Dragstrip DVD and Santa Ana closed in '59 so i thought it might fit the Earliest Willys Race car trhread.
