I’ve always wanted to own a ‘41 Willys Coupe and found Lil Wily 2 years ago in Northern California. After fixing a couple of leaks and adding a few personal touches, she runs, drives, and handles like a dream! Lil Wily is powered by a Street Performance HEMI with an Overdrive Automatic Transmission and a Ford 9” Posi Rear End with 3:91 Gears. She has a custom Powder Coated Tube Frame with a 4-Link Suspension, Wilwood 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes, and A-1 Coil-Over Shocks in all four corners, making her a pleasure to drive. The custom black leather interior, with suicide electric doors, windows, and trunk, Pioneer sound, and Dakota digital dash finish the feel inside the cockpit. On the outside, the PPG Scarlet Red paint base and clear coat with custom lettered flames, custom exhaust with Flomaster Mufflers, American Racing Torque Thrust Wheels, and Toyo Rubber make her shine and sing. Special thanks to Troy at Hot Rod Alley for his help, and Andy Keeran for his help with the transmission.
