The list goes on and on. You are viewing the “most” winning Willys ever built!! This is the original show gasser that Nick Mura built in 1963-64. Only 40 miles since complete 7 year restoration. Power comes via a 496 cu. in. Stroker Mopar Wedge newly built by “Big Als Toy Box.” This 871 Blown monster produced 903 H.P. on the second dyno pull, on pump gas. Backed by a polished Aluminum Case 727 Torge-Flite with a Hughs 3000 Stall Converter. Third member is an H.D. 8 3/4 Big Pinion Chrysler with 5:13 Posi. The complete front-end, rear-end, ladder bars, coil overs, and roll bar have been chrome plated. Everything is new or completely gone through during the restoration. Paint was originally done by Joe Bailon in late 1964 and later duplicated by Jesse Gonzales of “Street Toys” in Juarez, Mexico. The original interior still looks like new thanks to Gil Britto in 1964. The entire history can be found on the internet. This is a very rare opportunity to own of the greatest Willys of all time. A real piece of “Hot Rod History.” This truck is absolutely turn key *** needs nothing!
