Parkette Racing Body/Chassis Maryville, TN

• CATEGORIES: Racing • TAGS: , .

Tim posted this chassis with a Parkette racing body on it. Price Unknown. Has anyone run across a Parkette racing shell like this in the PNW (with the solid back on top and a dash that rolls down, then curves with the sides? I bet this one came out of Georgia when Paul Parker moved back there, but that’s just a guess.

“On hwy 411 just south of Maryville Tn.. appears to be one piece fiberglass.”

It’s a narrow bodied former mud drag jeep. Looks to be a project.

“1943 Willys
fuel: gas
title status: parts only
transmission: automatic
Older professionaly well built chassis, stretched body for Placerville Flat fenders club “Willy Make it” 4×4 454 chevy big block auto trans all the cool stuff!!!
Used for sand Drags later mud. Single seater but could easily be a bad ass two seat crawler!! Must see unlimited potenetial and real good parts and start! Totally complete unmolested needs tires.
Call text emailI just brought home last night so I’ll clean up and get more pics later but this gives you a idea. It has rear cooler with fan and water pump, and all your basic common set ups for a vehicle like this. I was hoping it was more road ready but the starter is dragging bad and heating up so I need to put one in. The breaks need juiced and bled from sitting. The carb seams stuck but I have only just started messing with it. It’s sat for years but my buddy assured me it was running 6 months ago. So with all that said if it’s of interest to you make a offer I have a yard full of projects I’d rather turn it and burn it!!!!!”
