    I received a phone call from a gentleman claiming to have found a 1937 willys coupe . This in it's self is cool , but he claims that it has a factory
    Built 1936
    Rear
    Window area. He has not sent me pics, but after talking g with him I am convinced that he knows what he is looking at. My question is this, being that it was a transition year is it possible that willys sent out a new body style coupe with a single rear window as a prototype, or
    Maybe a sedan window
    Section?

  2. Does not sound likely to me, what other 37 tell tale items did he identify if any to verify that this is what it is. JW

    That sounds unlikely to me also. I have seen pictures of a few that it looks like someone has cut the center divider out of the window or replaced the rear window. I would think that it was done to improve visibility.

    It sounds like the visibility thing is a viable answer. Either way, a willys coupe is a willys coupe. I'm hoping he can send pics.

    I'm not trying to get it. From the sounds of it the car is actually very nice, what fun is that!
     
  7. Could be a 36 made in 36 . JW

    Here's an Ozzie 5W coupe T.J. RICHARDS body), looks to be a one piece rear window rather than a split one

    Those are some cool cars. I'm thinking he could have another weird car. Seems cool to me.
