The grille of the World's Wildest Willys Gasser

Underneath that innocent looking fiberglass hood lives a blown Ford SOHC V-8.

Although the Cammer established itself as a major threat in nitro burning dragsters and funny cars, I don’t remember any other gas coupe relying on Ford’s big 427 engine for power. Then again, with Montgomery’s lock on the US Nationals, Ford didn’t need any other cars running the Cammer to have a lot to brag about in the gas coupe and sedan ranks.
