The 1941 Willys Coupe is an icon in the street rod scene. So when you can show up in a big bad classic with a dual-quad supercharged Hemi V8 making 900 horsepower that should be enough, right? Well no. When you pay for premium, you get it, too. This is a carefully crafted vehicle to make sure that it's a full mix of comfortable features and professional-grade performance.
The Canary Yellow paint is an instant attention-grabber. It has a vibrant style the radiates in the sunshine and looks like it could glow in the dark. But for this screaming yellow fiberglass coupe, the details are what really count. The door handles are shaved and there's no superfluous chrome. That keeps your focus on the iconic electric shaver grille, teardrop headlights, and that huge air grabber popping out of the hood. It's butter-smooth in the rear where the sloping design instantly reminds you why the Willys coupe is an icon. Some cars try to hide their aggressive stance, but on this one, those swoopy fenders can barely contain it. The deep Weld Racing wheels are there to give strength to where the massive rear Mickey Thompson Sportsman drag radials meet the road.
When you pop open the door, your first impression is pure luxury. The saddle tan has a sophisticated look, and this is fully finished, even in the trunk. The leather bucket seats with alligator inserts are supple and sophisticated. Not only do they have terrific bolstering, but also they are power adjustable. There are more thoughtful features like power windows, a cup holder center console, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. The Flaming River tilt steering column connects to a Flaming River steering box. But within this luxury is also serious performance. The full color-matched roll cage not only looks cool, but also it's NHRA certified. There's a Hurst Quarter Stick pistol grip shifter. And the full set of AutoMeter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges are the same ones the professionals use.
The big air intake peeking out from the hood will always have people wondering what's inside. So since you're going to be lifting the hood wherever you park this Willys, they made sure the engine bay was ready to show off. Smooth walls, bright components, and the overall tidy setup will really keep people talking. And just in case they didn't find it memorable enough, the consignor states this Hemi V8 was originally a Don "The Snake" Prudhomme racing block (there is currently no corroborating documentation with this history.) But while the appearance and story are meant to draw people in, the full build is designed to blow their doors off. It's a 426 cubic-inch (bored to 488ci according to the consignor) Keith Black Hemi motor built with dual Demon four-barrel carburetors, a cool Cragar intake, and 671 blower. It's supported by the right pieces, like an MSD Pro Billet distributor, CSR Performance electric water pump, steel braided lines, and MSD 7AL ignition. The long tube performance headers add even more power while feeding the massive dual side exhaust pipes. So you'll love dialing in the rumble next to your ear using the throttle. And with the consignor claiming 900 horsepower on tap, everyone will hear your power superiority. The stout A727 Torqueflite three-speed transmission has a Cheetah reverse manual valve body to give you full control over the big power and its thunderous soundtrack. This also has a tubular A-arm front suspension, reinforced four-link on the Ford 9-inch rear, and adjustable coilovers all around. Stopping is even well in control thanks to four-wheel disc brakes.
This is a top-quality build that give you confident and solid control over its big power. And that massive motor even has a story to tell. So if you want a quarter-mile stunner that has touched NHRA royalty like Keith Black and maybe even Don Prudhomme, call today!
