Wonder where it is now.....the owner at the time was my auto shop teacher.

    ...when Gassers were 'correctly built'! Very clean & sanitary.

    Wonder about the throttle link bolt head in the right side of the Moon pedal...should have been a flat head bolt, non-trapping type. Sole-trap could delay time to get to brake...
    Only reason I say this is:
    Back in 1962, my '46 Coupe had a 1:1 671 pump atop Joe Reath's 1958 Chrysler Hemi, triple Vee belt drive...A new pair of Floursheim Imperial Brogue wingtips with my 1/2" ironed cuffs on Levi 501s looked 'scandalishly smart'... I drove the Mean Machine into the local drive-in to hang out, and cool-ly 'cleaned off' the 8.20s as I came in the slick driveway...Traction found, the '46 leaped ahead, my Floursheim jammed into the size-10 Moon was stuck...'PAPP!' It came unstuck, and I found the brake pedal, just in time to bash 2 garbage cans in stopping against the back fence...No harm done, just the 2 garbage cans. I gave the owner $10, and it was O.K.
    Much laughter, and egg all OVER my face!
    Somebody said I was gettin' too big for my shoes, but they had it backwards...
    Looked good, though...:D

    Pretty darn cool! Very clean build. Back when ''Corvette motor'' was actual. I was admiring the pedals. Atwater Mike's post was a good read.
    Nice looking young ladies. Love the mod slacks and wide tie, too!

    In the first picture, what are the two kids holding up to their ears? Can't be cellphones.

    1962? That would have been the hottest thing. Transistor radios! Dig it man!

    I see a transistor radio and a pipe.

    Willys is beautiful, think your old teacjer is still around, he'd be about 75-80 yrs old. I imagine the school system would be able to locate him, theyre likely sending him a pension check.

    I've gone through the '70, '71 and '76 yearbooks so far, but no shots of the Willys.

    Perhaps you should have a chat over a drink or coffee with him and have him show you some more pics. Perhaps he was with a club or has strip or build pics. I suppose he knows your heart is in the vintage cars correct?

    our auto shop teacher had a 56 Chevy 2 door post. just a regular 20 year old car back then. his name was Mr. Wheeler. we always thought that was a cool name for an Auto Shop teacher.

    That was a different time. I built gunstocks in wood shop, cleaned and re-blued rifles in metal shop. Great teachers that cared for students. That Willy’s was driven to school on several occasions just to keep us motivated
