Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Shark snoot, sleepy eyeballz, hood ornament, I likes!
It surprises me that I've never seen one of those except in online photos. I was a kid born in the '40s in the Midwest with a pretty sharp eye for cars, and that Willys just looks alien as heck.
I was a kid in a big city in the 40's and I ain't never seen one, either!
I saw this pic a few months ago, thought it was here. I started looking for more pics of the Willis and stumbled across this one. If you like the Willis, you'll love this.https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.lv5MdbBy5yf3tNNOXViBjAHaDP%26pid%3DApi&f=1
I love Willies. Not as much as I like Jeeps (as they were later renamed).
Was this one featured on a restoration site, a former barn-kept original that was restored to it's birthday glow? I can't recall the name of the shop but I'll find it and compare photos.Very cool cars.
You would for certain have the only Studebaker of this model at the ice cream shop, weekend car show or street rod event. You would have a crowd around it. And fingerprints. And stories from everybody about how they had one just like it back in the day.
It's missing a P-40 shark mouth.
Late to the comments but I KNEW I'd seen a similar car recently, and here she is:https://metalworksclassics.com/?s=WillysGood site, btw and they have excellent examples of their other work.
