FOR SALE: 1953 Willys Custom
Antique/Classic / St. Louis, Missouri
Custom Paint & Interior!
Removable Bikini Top!
Hot rods are typically old, classic American cars with large engines modified for linear speed. The origin of the term \"hot rod\" is unclear. The term became commonplace in the 1930s or 1940s as the name of a car that had been \"hopped up\" by modifying the engine in various ways to achieve higher performance.
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this stunning 1953 Willys Custom Street Rod. Willys was most well known for its part in WWII but fast forward to present day and you will find many Willys have been transformed into badass street rods, such as this one! This particular one has benefitted from custom paint, interior and a bigger engine!Finished in a metallic shade of bronze, the paint on the Willys is stunning, especially in the sunlight! The paint shows very well and shows only very minor imperfections. The body is straight and solid, as a post war Willys should be! The front and rear bumpers are finished in black and look great, with only the rear bumper showing some paint chipping on the center. There is a removable, black bikini top that can easily be taken off to enjoy the sun while driving on a hot summer day. It should be mentioned that there is no glass in the side doors or in the rear. The rear \"bed\" is covered with black vinyl and the section closest to the rear opens to reveal storage and the battery.
Inside, the interior is simple. The seats are wrapped in black leather and look great, showing no imperfections. The doors are covered in gray carpet and look awesome. The floor is lined with a black mat and looks very tidy. The dashboard is color matched to the exterior and houses a full set of white face Phantom gauges that look excellent. There is a Sony AM/FM/CD player hidden behind the glove box door and a speaker box in between the seats. It should be noted that there are no wiper arms/blades or wiper controls.
Under the hood, you\'ll find a 283ci small block Chevy V8 engine (#3862194) powering this cool Willys. Mated to the engine is a manual transmission, shifted through the floor. This is a fun vehicle to drive and is sure to turn heads wherever it may go! It sits upon a set of chrome 17\" Equus wheels wrapped in newer P235/65R17 tires and they look great! It should be noted that the emergency brake is inoperable.
This is a fun summer cruiser or may even be shown in car shows! The VIN is 453AA212642 and the mileage currently shows 12,530. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
