Restored All-Steel Willys Pickup Custom 350ci V8 Auto Ford 8in A/C ///
Looking for a cool old hot rod to parade up and down Main Street? This all-steel Willys is your next classic! Dressed and ready to roll, this clean custom has been meticulously rebuilt to preserve all the innate appeal of Willys's popular Americar aesthetic. Speaking of clean, the truck's expressive body, uncharacteristically solid when its restoration began, sports a vibrant coat of Porsche Guards Red 2-stage. Logging only 2,000 miles since its application, that sizzling pigment highlights an incredibly straight fuselage that was massaged into shape in late 2004. Naturally, fit is good and finish is great. And overall, this road-ready cruiser checks all the boxes for an enduring, well-planned resurrection. Under the hood, a hot GM ZZ3 350 turns 345 horsepower into 387 lb./ft. of torque. Behind that mill, a reliable Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed spins power to an 8-inch Ford axle. A Satin Black chassis utilizes a Mustang II front-clip and traditional leaf springs to give the truck a great stance. Modern rack-and-pinion steering is a welcome addition. Braking is solid, thanks to a familiar combination of discs and drums. And everything rolls on stainless-trimmed steelies and BF Goodrich Radial T/As. Between the doors, you'll find a timeless interior that's spiced with just the right amount of comfort and convenience. At ground level, wool Wilton carpet centers a tall Lokar shifter between metal foot pedals and a polished emergency brake. At the back of that rug, a camel leather bench rides snug between custom side panels. At the front of the truck, a body-matched dash founds Classic Instruments telemetry above remote-controlled Panasonic audio and hardware for Vintage Air conditioning. And in front of the driver, a satin-spoke steering wheel laps modern Cruise Control. This rare and equally cool Willys combines fine craftsmanship with a roster of proven performance hardware that's ready to hit the road today.
