For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a real 1940 Willys Coupe. The frame is an original that has been strengthened to support the extra power coming from the alcohol fed blown 400 small block Chevy. The body is fiberglass and is in very good condition and is infused with red color vs. being painted. This is a very high dollar build that offers a lot of show and plenty of go! The build was completed in 2017 with top quality parts and was originally a show car and 7.0 index for specialty drag racing. Fit and finish is very nice and upon viewing the car in close detail, thereÃ¢â?¬â?¢s no question that it was a well thought out build.Power comes from a bored 383 stroker (400 cubic inch) small block Chevy that is equipped with a Scat rotating assembly, JE pistons, AFR aluminum heads, TBS 192 Supercharger, Holley 1050 Dominator and an Electric water pump. The build was completed by LRS - Tim Wilkerson Racing. This awesome power is sent through a modified Power Glide automatic transmission with a 3,800 stall and back to a custom Ford 9 inch rear with 5.13 gears with Mark Williams axles to handle the power. Slowing down is drama free thanks to 4 wheel disc brakes. Steering is very direct thanks to manual rack and pinion. The suspension is set up with adjustable coil overs, tubular upper and lower control arms. A ladder bar set up with adjustable coil overs puts the power down to the ground.Even though this bad boy is set up for drag racing, there isnt a whole lot to change in order to make this one street friendly. This is a professional, and highly skilled build that will give many a run for their money! It would be a heck of a street car!
