Mike Brattland's 1938 Willys Pickup Build Pictures / willysframe1a


This is a much later photo of the chassis as I was getting it ready to run with my current unfinished body. I had sanblasted the much modified original frame with back half 4 link and painted it with black rustoleum. It has worked very well. The clutch and brake pedals are based on a Neal Products alum pedal mount, with attached AFCO master cylinder for the clutch and a remotely mounted Ford dual 4 wheel disc brake mastercylinder. The picture also reveals my eventual change to a Alston drive shaft look as well as the forward structural bracing of the chassis to handle the horsepower.
