Known to the 2016 Detroit Autorama as "Full Throttle" this incredible custom is a high quality fiberglass tribute that's been professionally prepped dipped in PPG Torch Red 2-stage and finished to standards that would've been absolutely unthinkable on a pre-war assembly line. The car's lightweight body was supplied by Dennis Taylor Reproductions. And while its shape remains ultra-traditional just the right amount of tweaks were added to provide plenty of unique personality. Full Throttle's buil...der always enjoyed attending the Autorama and circa 2003 decided he'd create a classic that could compete for hot rodding's greatest honor. 13 years two shops and thousands of labor-intensive hours later the car debuted to much acclaim. And today it lights up our showroom with a mere 0.5 miles on an incredible Ridler Great 8-winning build. That's right this Willys isn't some out-dated has-been that won one big award and then retired to the garage to become a cool weekend driver. "Full Throttle" is a fresh fully sorted build that's ready to hit the show circuit and win its weight in trophies! Thanks to a supercharged 540 cubic inch Dart big block this sleek coupe scoots to the tune of a monstrous 800 horsepower! That fire-breathing engine twists torque through a cooled Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed which spins a fabricated axle that's finished with 3.73 gears a posi-traction differential and 31-spline axles. That first class drivetrain rides a smoothed Dennis Taylor chassis which is bolted to a fully chromed suspension. Low-speed stops are provided by chrome felt-lined calipers which utilize stainless TCI lines to squeeze chromed drilled and slotted rotors. And all that muscle rolls on custom knock-offs which spin Sumitomo HTRZs in front of Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs. This incredible Willys is a fully sorted bruiser that combines top-notch craftsmanship with world-class pedigree. Call click or visit for more information!
