    I built this 52 Aero Lark pro street car many years ago. It was awarded best post war Willys at the Gateway Gasser Gathering in 1999.

    These are cool "small" cars... Much like the Hudson Jet's... They're unique and have a great style taken from the big cars of the era..

    I am picking up this '53 Aero Falcon later this week. All original, all the trim appears to be there, 74,000 miles. Still running and driving and it has a few spots of rust but not nearly as bad as some. I have been want a rat for a while and this will do nicely. Plan is to lower about 4" on all 4 corners and drive it.

    Here is a '51 that I had a while back , the body was grafted onto a Dodge Neon chassis , and had all the factory A/C , am/fm/cd player , even the dash from the neon , handled great , 37 mpg and real easy to maintain , and looked good to , this is when I was laying the flames on the 2 tone green primer...

    Wills Aero's are way cool and make a great looking rod. Theres a red tudor that appears to be a stocker that just rolled out of a show room in Panama City Beach, Florida that I see often. It would make a great start for a project. The next time I see it, I'm going to try and see if its for sale.

    I am rebuilding a 1953 Willys Aero Eagle (2-dr hdtp). Just needs upholstery now. Has been a huge project since nothing is off-the-shelf. Has Mustang II type front suspension, Lincoln Versailles rear end (Ford 9" w/discs), GM V6 Vortec engine, 4L60E automatic over-drive transmission, coil-over shocks on all corners and Halibrand wheels. Since it is very rare I've kept the body very original looking with the exception of being lowered. e-Bay has been a great source for parts for me as I've purchased parts for it from Brazil, Norway and Isreal. I purchased the car in Nebraska from a lady owner of nearly 45 years. Was in remarkable shape for having sat out (in a fence-row) for several years. I'm rolling it out of the garage for the first time tomorrow. It's lite-up time! Will post pics when available.

    Hey guys! Also only found this thread now, I too have a willys Aero project going. Got a 55 fourdoor full option model, 3 on the tree manual with the f-head 6. I plan to get rid of the f-head and box, and put a 4.0l 1uzfe-vvt Lexus V8 with 6speed auto in it's place. Will also Swop out rear axle for something a little stronger and with longer legs. Front suspension will be custom scratch built with big brakes and coilovers most probably. Will post pics of progress as it goes on!

    Question for you guys with Aero's: Almost everyone I've seen for sale has had busted tail lights and or broken windshields/back glass. Is there a source for things like this, or do you just have to search and hopefully get luck?

    Here's a hardtop local...late model engine and tranny but the rest is all Willys. Shot this at NSRA Pueblo show...

  29. There was a '53 four door with lots of rust-through issues, but running, for $4,000 at the Lawrence, Ks. swap meet May 1. I would have thought about it if the going price was half that.
    When I was 15, I overhauled the F-head 161 cu in in our '53 Aero Ace. Had hoped that it would become my car when I turned 16, but Mom vetoed that. Dad sold it before I turned 16. They needed the money.
