Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1940 Willys pro-Street coupe

Old Cars spotlights a reader’s 1940 pro street Willys coupe.

Lawrence Valenzano loves Willys coupes… and from the looks of it he likes speed as well.

This is what Lawrence Valenzano had to say about his Willys...

"I always liked Willy’s coupes and wished I could get one. I found this in a garage and asked if I could buy it; five years later the owner called me and he sold it to me. It was a basket case but was a true steel Willys. It took me 12 years to rebuild, but it was worth it. When completed, it was transformed from a basket case to a pro street Willys."
