1940 Willys Coupe


Are you’re the kind of buyer who’s ready to drop jaws and polish trophies? Here’s the gleaming thrill ride you’ve been patiently waiting for! 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 builder 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, roughly eight months after that unveiling, it lights up our showroom with a mere 0.5 miles on an incredible, Ridler Great 8-winning build. 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, “Full Throttle” branded knock-offs, which spin Sumitomo HTRZs in front of Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs. This incredible Willys is a powerful and fun bruiser that combines top-notch craftsmanship with world-class pedigree. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information!
