the mindy /willys is going great guns back panel now in but found hotchkiss panel light cut outs a bit tight for willys lights as the holes lined up with the rear wheel box by a wee bit so welded hole up and cut a new one both sides, vehicle now has willys steering the steering box by ross and shaft i flea bayed these in france
the axle i bought from a willys is surplus as i found a coded welder who will take off the pitman arm mount stud i have on another willys case and weld it in place on my big dana 44 the only problem we all see 5 of use ... being 5 tiny minds are allway sort of better than one the mount from the mindy will need to be cut to fit the hotchkiss dash...
sorry the pedel box mount ill keep you up dated re the build as we get on
im looking for a willys rear seat any out there with out selling my left cobbler
also looking for soft top bows as well
head lights are from kit car nice and chrome 6 inch dia fitted to willys mounts
