    This past spring @ Springfield, Ohio swap meet, my buddy spoke with a vendor who had a 'glass one piece Willys front end for sale. They talked price, called me about it, and I turned it down....didn't need it at the time. My buddy took his name and phone number and of course, has misplaced it. The seller was from the Dayton, Ohio area.

    I'm now looking for a front end for a coupe project.

    If anyone on here might know of the vendor, or the front end, I'd appreciate a note, either here or as a pm. Thanks in advance.

    No, that's the problem. My buddy took the guy's name and phone, and has lost the note.

    Booger...send me a PM on this. I help run that swap meet, and I can probably find your vendor. If not, I know a guy in this area who has made a ton of fiberglass parts for Willys. Former cop from the Oakwood, Ohio area named Butch. Nice guy, too.

    What year Willys front end - Butch Bailey's stuff was mostly 1933 Model 77 - Blue Knight Willys I think was his business. I bought a N.O.S. one piece brass 1933-35 Willys windshield frame from him. Nice guy to deal with....
     
  6. If it's Butch, he IS a good guy...bought a few things from him over the years. Last I heard he was heavy into power boat racing! Blue Knight Enterprise!

    Thanks to all, especially bobby Sox....he located the vendor and the front end. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the deal with the owner. Another deal is pending.
