1940 WILLYS ALL STEEL 4 DOOR SEDAN The Willys Americar was a line of automobiles produced by Willys-Overland Motors from 1937 to 1942, either as a sedan, coupe, station wagon or pick-up truck. The coupe version is a very popular hot rod choice, either as a donor car or as a fiberglass model. The car started production in 1937 with somewhat traditional styling, a product of the internal reorganization that turned Willys-Overland Motor Company into Willys Overland Motors. It was itself an evolution of the aging Willys 77. When Joseph W. Frazer joined the company in 1938 he decided that a modern-looking and cheap compact car was the answer for the struggling Willys. Models 37, 38 and 39 gradually evolved into a more Ford-like appearance, culminating in the very much DeLuxe-like 40 model. This all Steel 1940 Willys Sedan Deluxe Custom offered by Blad Boys is rust free and a joy to trek on down the road. Many Willys Customs seen on the road or on the internet are very high end Street Rods that reach the six figure mark but are way too radical to trust on a long weekend trip with the wife or friends.
