1933 Willys Coupe
Jack Runner's 1933 Willys Coupe was rescued from a creek in upstate Idaho. After countless hours of metal work,  it was ready for paint and a new chassis. The original frame was stripped, repaired, boxed and fitted with a 392 Hemi, and a TCI prepped Turbo 400 transmission. The front axle is a tube style from Speedway Motors. It was fitted with spindles and brakes from a 1956 Ford  F100. Out back, the Willys has a 9 inch Ford rear end, with 3.73 gears and a positrac differential. Inside, the Willys has a race feel, complete with a 6 point roll cage, 8 gallon fuel cell, aluminum race seats and a dash full of gauges. When Jim Sibley and Jack sat down to decide the direction of this car, they agreed that it needed to give off the feel of a real gasser built in the late 50's, but still be able to be driven on a daily basis. As you can imagine, this little car is a hand full of fun. But don't let the appearence scare you. Jack is still able to jump in this thing and drive it down to the local burger joint and get a little lunch when he feels like it.
