1941 Willys Coupe Gasser
While many of us remember the early days of drag racing
when blown gas coupes ruled the quarter mile,
others may need to have their memories jogged.
They might need a little reminder to help them recall
what life was like before the advent of the Funny Car.
In the 1960s the blown gassers were some of the most exciting
and most publicized racers in drag racing.
Gas Coupe and Sedan classes had to maintain stock wheelbases
and the engine relocation was limited.
When you think gasser, most people conjure up an image of a '41 Willys,
a Hilborn scoop poking through the hood,
and that nose high stance coming at you.
Drag racing fans were eager to see racers like Stone-Woods-Cook,
"Big John" Mazmanian, Mallicoat Bros., and many more.
Exterior: Originally built from the ground up in 1992,
a new paint scheme was applied in 1999 featuring
a beautiful shade of Medium Blue with
an overlay of Magenta 3D Flames and
Mercedes Pearl White on the front end.
The body is mostly steel with the exception
of the fiberglass tilt or lift-off front end and
the widened and extended rear fenders.
The body is also insulated from the top to the bottom.
In the rear is a full trunk without the sacrifice of space
due to being tubbed.
All body lines and panel gaps are perfect and
the frenched antenna adds a nice nostalgic touch.
Overall, the body is in remarkable condition
for the age of the car with a few very minor stress cracks.
Interior: The custom reclining Recaro bucket seats,
door panels, console, and
full roll cage are upholstered in color matched supple
Eggshell White calf skin leather.
The dash houses a full complement of
AutoMeter Pro Comp gauges and power window switches.
A console-mounted B & M Quarter Stick
stirs the gears of the built TH400 transmission.
Dark Blue wool carpeting graces the cockpit
as well as the trunk area.
Engine and Driveline: One glance over the hood and
you can't help but notice the tops of the
staggered injector stacks staring back at you.
Lift the hood and you are greeted by an engine bay
filled with lots of chrome, billet, and
color matching components.
At the heart of this is a 1970 Chevy 454 big block
bored to 468 cubic inches,
fully balanced and blueprinted,
with ported and polished oval port heads,
and custom built chrome long-tube headers,
making an honest 500+ HP.
Saving the best for last
The 'wild injected look' is complements of a
Garlits Performance Products IN600 STREET INDUCTION unit
that completely mounts over and covers a
Holley 4150 series 750 CFM double pumper carb
and intake manifold.
Features include a fully machined and
highly polished aluminum casting,
famous staggered Crower-style ram tube stacks with
custom purple tops,
2 1/2' tall K & N Filter elements,
authentic looking dummy barrel valve, lines and anodized fittings, etc.
The unit allows all of this without the associated problems
and costs of running a real injector setup!
Built GM TH400 transmission with 2000 RPM converter.
Early 1960s Olds/Pontiac rear end with 4.33:1 ratio and
Summers Brothers Racing forged steel axles.
Adjustable 4-link rear suspension with coilover shocks.
Front suspension consists of a chromed tubular straight axle
and a semi-elliptical spring suspension system.
J.F.Z. Racing Disc brakes on all four corners.
The tubular frame is custom made with
high dollar components throughout.
A custom chromed 4" dropped front axle is available with
this Willys that will easily transform the Coupe from the 1960s "Gasser" style
to a "Pro-Street" look.
Wheels and Tires: Front wheels are ET Gassers 15X4 on radial tires.
Rear wheels are Centerline Convo Pros 15X14 on
M/T Sportsman Pro 33X19.50 15 tires.
Being offered for sale is this remarkable custom,
hand built, 1941 Willys Coupe
that is sure to bring back some of those memories from the sixties.
Also no stranger to publicity,
in 1992, this Willys was a "Top Ten" selection in
the prestigious International Show Car Association (ISCA) Pacific Division
followed by a cover story in the March, 1994 edition of Street Rodder Magazine.
