If you read Old Cars Weekly, you know there were three stock Willyses
on the show field. Since seeing one stock Willys is rare, and two is
rare, three is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most of us. Since
the three Willyses present were a 1940, 1941 and a 1942, it was a rare
opportunity to see the mild differences between 1940 and ’42, the
entire run with the round nose.
Enjoy these pics from Hershey! I’ll post more cool scenes as I unearth my desk…
1940 Willys grille. Note the two sections of vertical bars.
1941 grille on an unrestored truck. Notice the one-piece grille with vertical bars.
1942 grille. Notice the addition from ’41 of a vertical trim bar at the center.
And, for good measure, a photo of the 1942 Willys coupe at the event:
