This 1933 Willys Coupe is a true automotive unicorn. Not only are you very unlikely to encounter such a specimen in your travels, even if you were to cross paths, it's almost inconceivable that it would combine the sterling exterior finish and array of top tier features you'll find here.
At first glance, your inclination is to think that this coupe's striking visual presence is the result of extensive modification, but it isn't. Put it side by side with a stock counterpart from back in 1933 and you'll gain an appreciation for just how stylish this car was from the start. From those flowing fenders that transition to amply sized running boards before ascending into the rear fenders, to the ornate front grille, these styling cues aren't aftermarket afterthoughts, but rather were part of the mix when this coupe debuted. The Cobalt blue metallic paint, almost electric in its intensity, looks great and is in stellar condition, covering a sturdy steel body that's straight and well-aligned. Take a lap around and you'll find every bit of the chrome ornamentation also represents itself well. Up front, the windshield raises and lowers smoothly, surrounded by clean chrome trim and a fresh rubber seal, while in back the LED taillights loom just above a shiny steel rear bumper and the emerging exhaust tips to create a great visual effect.
The gray leather interior waiting inside maintains the same high standards shown on the exterior and still smells very new. From the two-tone, exceedingly comfortable bench seat to the matching door panels it's flanked by, as well as all the other elements you'll find inside, evidence of outstanding craftsmanship is everywhere. The dash area is another stellar attraction in a car with a seemingly endless supply of them, with the spotless deep blue of its steel surface perfectly complemented by a set of VDO gauges framed with brass rings to keep tabs on motoring functions while on the road. There's a custom steering wheel mounted on a brushed aluminum tilting column to put it in exactly the right position and as you reach out to grasp it, you'll come to the realization that this Coupe is configured every bit for inspired driving as it is for the benefit of admiring onlookers. Next to the controls for the cold A/C and hidden in the glovebox is an AM/FM/CD stereo system on hand to provide an audio backdrop for your adventures on the asphalt.
An LS1 V8 sporting 5.7 liters of displacement sits as the foundation of a high performing yet dependable drivetrain. It's in fine running form, echoing out a deep, rumbling exhaust note through its Flowmaster mufflers, and is paired with a 4 speed 700R4 transmission that offers a great combination of gearing for off the line acceleration and overdrive for low-RPM revs at highway speeds. The disc brakes you'll find at all four corners are certainly a benefit in real world driving, offering dependable, fade resistant stopping power in the form of the Wilwood components. Below, the clean undercarriage provides more proof of this vintage street machine's outstanding condition - it's an assembly of unmarred flooring and straight suspension components that include coilovers in front and back to provide a great ride and avoid the binding around corners that often plagues less evolved components. This very appealing classic coupe sits on a set of Budnik billet wheels - 17" in front and 20" in back for a killer, aggressive stance - outfitted with Nitto tires.
