My little 36 Willys Phaeton
Hi Bonesy - Thanks for your kind comment. You are obviously a man of uncommonly keen intellect and taste. Your roadster is a killer - don't change it!
Older picture of a 35-36 Willys.
So glad this thread popped back up. I couldn't find it in the search function....
This is the real deal. Local and owner built by a very skilled chassis builder Bob Forzley. He did the chassis on my rpu over 30 yrs ago also.
my old one
My steel 32 tub - steel 2 door! Doors lengthened 6", tudor sheet metal from doors back, 34 skirted fenders, sbc crate / 6 spd, Topster top, LOTS of miles!
The tub is lookin' good, Larry!
'Shorty' Fulton @ his Akron Airport circa. 1933. I believe he used this pic
in his Christmas cards also.
What is that body? It's a 2 door. Didn't know they made them.
Looks like a Deluxe Phaeton. They made them as a two-door in '30-31.
I'm more intrigued by those wheels and tires. I didn't realize they made wheels that small and tires that big in the early '30s.
those wheels and tires are awesome!
I've seen 14" wheels supposedly from the '33-'34 era called "General Jumbo" wheels. I've also seen period beach buggies fitted with large high-flotation tires like that in the '40s and '50s. I believe those were captioned as aircraft tires.
"Shorty" worked for Firestone and Goodyear before starting the airport in the 20's and of course Goodyear built their Zeppelin airdock there too,so undoubtedly he had access to the latest and greatest...
This is my 37 phaeton finished last year
She used to be a 2 door sedan.
I wish I had a photo of the whole T tub
Lets just bump this up...
quick update, coming along slowly.

As of yesterday..Getting closer
Saw this one last weekend in Tennessee!
A little OT, but still a way-cool tub: Anyone have any photos of Al Schieb's '34 Phaeton with the killer flames and big slicks on the back? If I remember correctly, Al and his brother (sons of Earl Schieb) built the thing in the '50s and then rebuilt in the early '70s.
Not a streeter, but here're three stages of my tub ......
When I first dropped the body on'er ......
After a bit of paint ......
And presently, after switching'er over to a "Midnite Oil" configuration ......
Sweet! Man, I wish I could get a '32 tub like that for my project...
here is my garage pals sweet 29 on 32 rails.
Friend of mine is working on this one . . . . .
I think this one is pretty much perfect. Now somebody just needs to build it. Its seems that the 30-31's are he rarest though.
A Stock 1936 Willys Phaeton and a hotrod 1936 Willys Phaeton.
Here is another great looking 33 tub.
