    UK made 41 Willys Coupe bodies.

    Hi everyone @ RnS,

    Can you help me out ?

    Which companies still produce fibreglass 41 Willys coupe bodies here in the UK ?
    I'm researching the feasibility of building one ( but as a Kustom ) and I need to find info, prices, availability of bodies etc.

    Also what about a base/ donor vehicle to use for registration etc, or a suitable chassis.

    Thanks in anticipation of any & all responses.

    MildKustom.................in rural Norfolk.

    sounds cool, I don't know why there isn't more built as kustoms, bodily they're very close to a 40 Merc and 40 Ford coupe proportions, possibly a better starting point too, ie 3 window, long flowing trunk etc.

    something like these?


    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.

    You need a SE5 ,works great, SE6 is too long and wide.

    Mark Bull can explain all about the rebodying as he's done several himself.

    Details on rebodying requirements can be found at www.the-ace.org.uk | The Association Of Car Enthusiasts

    Thanks everyone, most helpful especially the Reliant SE5 info Kapri ( kev ).

    Also anyone know of a reliable place up here in the sticks, well rural west Norfolk ( King's Lynn area besides Wisbech Eng ) that could undertake some of the heavier / more difficult work I know I can't do thoroughly & competently that could help me with this project ?

    Thanks again.
