    Let's see some Willys sedan drag cars. 4 doors 2doors. Did these cars run Gas class or Altered class with engine set back? Here are just a few i found around the H.A.M.B.

    If the engine setback was no more then 10% (NHRA) then it could have run gas class.

    These are cool. I have always liked the sedans better then the coupes for door slammers.

    Color me stupid, and school me a bit, or at least help me remember.

    @DDDenny or @Speed Gems the headlight (bug eyed?) cars are '39 and earlier right?

    Assuming that the bug eyed cars had their original front ends they would be 1937-38 or 1939 model 48 cars. They also made the 1939 Willys Overland with the shark nose.

    The "Assassin " from Post #5, ran A/G with an injected Pontiac, and SBC, before John Anderson and Chet Thomas (owners), chopped the top and installed a blown fuel Chrysler. Jim Barnard joined the team, and they moved to AA/FA. A-1.jpg A-3.jpg
