Willys America is another important page of the American automotive history book that emerged in the pre-World War II era. From 1937 until 1942, the company produced sedans, coupes, station wagons, and pickup trucks. Back then, the Americans had issues such as engine problems, a lack of replacement and repair parts, and the inability to provide after-sale support.
