There are no short cuts on this stunning Willys Pro Touring Coupe, it is gorgeous with nothing but top-of-the-line components utilized throughout its 3,000 man hour, $135,000 restoration and build. The Rio Red PPG Base coat, clear coat paint job alone cost in excess of $20,000. This build was performed by Outlaw Customs and has only 500 miles on the odometer. It is already a multiple show first prize winner.

The Willys employs a formidable Street & Performance Ram Jet 502-cid, 550-hp fuel-injected V-8 engine that features all forged internals and full roller valvetrain. The transmission is a Turbo 400 automatic with Lokar shifter and the rear end is a 9-inch Ford posi-traction unit by Moser with custom 3.89:1 gearing. The platform is a pro street frame and fiberglass body from Outlaw Customs; it has fully adjustable suspension with three height settings, custom rack and pinion steering, Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes with chrome calipers, tubular A-arms, large Daytona carrier, large bearings axles, SPAL electric fan, six-inch deep radiator and serpentine accessory drive. Everything under the hood is chrome or polished, except the jet-coated headers and the painted block, which has been sanded smooth. The engine compartment is described as a “work of art.” The Willys rides on Billet Specialties polished wheels with "W" centers.

Moving to the interior you will find a Jeffery Phipps all-leather tan interior and a leather and tweed headliner. The seats are custom leather Cerullo elements that have red suede inserts. The dash features custom alloy with Dakota Digital gauges; further interior details include, custom Vintage Air, electric door strikes, custom integrated body lighting, Flaming River tilt steering wheel with horn, Alpine custom audio system with amps, CD and speakers and premium wool carpet. All of the components are chrome, polished or stainless. Everything inside the car holds to a rectangular theme, except for the AutoMeter tachometer, air conditioning vents and door mirrors.
