1947 Willys Wagon
For most of us the classic car world is about standing out with some attitude, and it doesn't get more custom or unique than this. After all a 1947 Willys Wagon is already going to draw a crowd, but when its been fully custom built with a performance V8, four-wheel disc brakes, and an A/C interior with every comfort imaginable, then you will always be the coolest custom everywhere you go.
The handsome, upright wagon body says Jeep as loudly as any modern CJ, and it's a familiar the world over. But this icon is instantly recognizable as a fully built classic. There was plenty invested in the Torch Red paint alone that gives this nearly 70-year old steel a healthy does of modern luster and shine. The gloss does a great job of highlighting all the ribbed details that came in the panel stamping (they were originally for strength, but now just increase the cool factor,) and it even helps hide the Radio Flyer ghost script on the side. It's the first time, but not the last reference that this is the perfect adult-sized little red wagon. The old and new world styles combine nicely on the brightwork where the grille, bumper, and cursive Willys scripts combine nicely with the competition style alloy wheels and bright side exhaust tips.
This custom attitude is heightened even further on the inside with comfortable leather bucket seats, a center console with cup holders, and rear benches that also have the full Willys-Overland logo embossed over the paneling. And that's only what you see in the first impression...there's so much more as you keep going. You'll sit behind a cool banjo-style wheel with wood rim, and beyond that are a full set of Classic Instruments gauges. While this might look vintage, the controls for the AM/FM/CD/XM stereo system, DVD player, and ice-cold air conditioning remind you that there was some serious investment in keeping this classic full of modern conveniences. You even get a backup camera on that flatscreen above the rear view mirror!
But your favorite upgrade starts under the hood. Just like the air cleaner says, this is 400 cubic-inch Radial Flyer (well ok, it's really a Chevy). The level of detail in the engine bay is amazing. Classic Mickey Thompson valve covers, steel braided hoses, tidy wires, and plenty of polished components will likely win award all on their own, but beneath this is some serious power. The 400 V8 actually has a bored .30 over kit to deliver big block displacement in a small block package. Plus the performance intake, four-barrel carb, and the glasspack exhaust give this plenty of bark and bite. The four-speed overdrive transmission has full control over this powerful package, but just like the rest of this custom built, that's far from the only modern upgrade. It now has the comfort of an independent front suspension borrowed from a Dodge Dakota, and the Mopar also donated the Chrysler rear end. Plus, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the modern grip of Goodyear Eagle GTII tires make this the easy choice for an anytime cruiser.
