Today, driving a pickup from 1941 is a very strange and rare thing. What’s even rarer, however, is that the Willys restored pickup truck has a funny cartoon-like look with 241 manually made body parts, plus a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 supercharged engine. .

This particular vehicle was built by the Legens Hot Rod Shop in Martins, Tennessee, USA, using a steel pipe chassis, 20 and 22-inch wheels (front and rear), supercharger Magnuson cooling inside, disc brakes, independent front and rear suspension and many other attractive equipment such as glossy aluminum transmission shaft, stainless steel exhaust system.

But the most outstanding feature is the round, funny and lovely appearance of the car. The front end looks like it was taken straight from a Pixar animated film “Cars”, but that doesn’t diminish the craftsmanship and enthusiasm of the production team.

For the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, the promotional information from the Mecum Auctions event did not specify how much horsepower was produced, but one would not be surprised if it was as fast as a high-performance hatchback. . It is not known how much this pickup will be auctioned but certainly not cheap.
