    Default 1929 Willys Whippet Turbo?

    Wanted to do this for a while now and finally got the chance.

    Started with this totaled 2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4, which has a 2.4l turbo engine that makes about 250hp stock and will make about 400 when I am done.


    And this, a 1929 Willys Whippet Coupe that will be a convertible.


    Loaded it all into a trailer from my parents farm and pulled it back home.

    Started by mocking the body up to get some height dimension and just looks cool.



    Stripped all the sheetmetal/extras off the engine/transmission/suspension setup.

    Did some trial fits of the bodywork over top of the engine setup.


    Had to cut the inner fenderwell out to get the coilovers and other items to fit.

    Cut and fit the rear frame rails along with the transmission mount.

    It will be mid engine RWD. I wanted to be different and had this engine laying around and thought to myself "Why not?".
