Andy Crockett – 1941 Willys Coupe

A ‘468’ Chevrolet injected and ‘blown’ engine producing 700bhp, a cabin trimmed in cream coloured leather and a body finished in ‘Apple Red Candy’ – it would be fair to say that Andy Crockett’s 1941 Willys Coupe ‘Street Rod’ would stand out in any crowd. Before it was exported to the UK in 2015, it was the long-term property of the racer Ronnie Sutton and the Willys is a trophy winner on both sides of the Atlantic. Best of all, it is an actual, genuine, fire-breathing dragster.

I recall when the Marina came out BL advertised: "Torsion Bar Front Suspension, as used on the E Type". Actually no, the torsion bar system was "as used on the Morris Minor". S Registration (1977) would have put this example right in the middle of the Red Robbo / Industrial Strife era when BL's reputation was being hammered by the imports. Nice example but I'm sure way more Marinas live on in kit cars as underpinnings and drive trains.
