1 advantage in my opinion on no molded to the body fenders is if they happen to get fudged up on the road beyond repair then they can be replaced. im not sure on the willys but most companies offer stock and various widths of rear fender widthes

I've got a 41 Willy's with an Alson Tube chassis. The rear fenders are installed, but with pop rivets, the front end is lift off, seperate hood. My has all the front inter fender wells/seperate pieces, all interior moldings, etc. can be run on the street or drag. mine didn't come with floors, but did come with firewall. i don't see much difference, you can still put 14" tires under stock rear fenders, atleast with the chassis that i have. it's an A/arm front and 4 link back. It is for sale (please guys this is not an add) as i said i don't see a lot of difference.

ive got a 41 with moulded front end and rear fenders.i like the idea of the rear being moulded on but im gonna cut the front end loose so i can make it a flip. ever try to put a engine in a car that aint hardley wide enough for a 4 banger let alone a v8.hell i can even get to the plugs because the fenders are in the way. so if the flip i can just sit on a wheel and go to work....

Is this going to be street driven or just a race car? How big are the rear tires going to be? One thing you have to consider is with big rear tires it is a real pain to get them on and off if the rear fenders are molded to the body. Mine are removable and held on by zsus fasteners, makes removing the rear wheels very easy.
