Reputedly capable of an impressive 60mph, the Willys Overland Model 40 was powered by a 4188cc four-cylinder engine allied to planetary transmission. Based around a sturdy ladder frame chassis equipped with all-round leaf-sprung suspension and rear-wheel brakes, the model wore 2+1-seater roadster coachwork that befitted its sporting capabilities. Well engineered, dependable and versatile, the Model 90 boasted such niceties as a folding windscreen and acetylene lighting set. Designed to be at home on made or unmade roads, the Overland proved a strong seller.
Finished in Light Grey with Black upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in 'good' condition with regard to its engine, transmission, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim. Decidedly rakish, this Edwardian Roadster appears to have been the subject of past restoration work.
