This stunning, one-of-a-kind pickup, nicknamed “Excessive” by its original builders, is the product of a 6.5-year, $400K restoration that was completed by Rickardsville, Iowa’s Avalon Body Shop. And, based on appearance, the truck’s original, 1941 steel was certainly a clean canvas before its radical transformation started. That’s right, everything you see here is solid steel that’s been tweaked, massaged and polished into an award-winning head turner. How award-winning, you ask? Well, in 2004, the truck was a Ridler Great 8 Finalist, the same year it was featured in Custom Classic Trucks Magazine. In 2006, it was featured in Kit Car Magazine, and stole the cover of Northern Rodder Magazine. In 2008, it was featured in a Street Rods calendar. And it’s also been a Goodguys Truck of the Year – Early finalist. Built to go just as well as it shows, this Willys 502 cubic inch GM Performance Parts big block utilizes quality Street & Performance tuned port injection to create a stout 510 horsepower! Behind that legendary big block, a dressed Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed, built by Shift Point Transmission Specialists of Kieler, Wisconsin, twists a narrowed and smoothed Currie 9-inch. That drivetrain rolls in smoothed, 2×4 tubing, which is perched on Aldan Eagle coil-overs, a polished Art Morrison front-clip and a polished 4-bar rear-clip. Turns come courtesy of manual rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided when a smoothed and painted Corvette master cylinder jolts four polished calipers via painted steel lines. And torque meets the pavement through stylish Mickey Thompson blades, which spin 26×8.00R18 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs in front of 31×18.00R20 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs. This rare and equally cool Willys combines top-notch craftsmanship with a roster of proven performance hardware that’s ready to hit the road today!
