By using your Chevy S-10 chassis and our
Willys hot rod bodies, driving your dream Willys has
just become easier. The Chevrolet S-10 and GMC S-15 are
readily available and well supported by the
after-market. The S-10/S-15 is a strong chassis and the
front cross member and "A" arms are more substantial
than the Mustang II components that are used on almost
all other street rod re-creations. This allows you to
build your Willys to your exact specifications.
Our 1941 Willys Pick up body
package will fit on the standard cab short bed S-10/S-15 (108"
wheelbase) without major changes. There are a few modifications
that are necessary such as removal of the old body mounts etc.
Our 1941 Willys Coupe does require shortening the wheelbase of
the donor chassis to the original 102" of the Willys. This can
be accomplished in several ways. One option is the Pro Touring
suspension which will allow up to a 10-inch tire and includes a
four link suspension and coilover shocks. Another option is the
Pro Street suspension which will allow up to a 15-inch tire.
Both these options will reduce the wheel base and upgrade from
leaf springs to the coilovers. A third option is to use our
custom jig-welded Mark II Chassis. It features 4" rectangular
tube long rails that are fully reinforced and tubular
crossmembers. You can choose from an independent front
suspension or two types of straight axles.
You can build your Willys hot
rod in several configurations. Do you prefer the Street Rod
look? We have a body package for you. Have you always wanted a
Willys Gasser? We have those, too. Want a 1-Piece tilt front
end? No Problem. Suicide doors? Gotcha covered. We have options
to make your car as mild or as wild as you want. Hidden hinges,
regular hinges, door handles or shaved, you tell us.
Body options such as reproduction grills,
headlights, buckets, taillights and door handles are available
to complete your re-creation. Fuel tanks, radiators, motor
mounts and suspension components are also available.
At Auto Classics we take pride
in the quality of the body packages and chassis parts we
produce. Let us know how you envision your street rod project
and we will help it become a reality.
