Sold for $3,575 at 2007 Vintage Motor Cars at Hershey.
In 1933 the Willys-Overland Corporation introduced the Model 77. It signaled a new direction for the company as it was a small sedan powered by a four-cylinder engine. Production of the six- and eight-cylinder cars continued, as well as the Sleeve-valve Willys-Knight. It was instantly popular and appealed to a greater number of buyers. Nearly 13,000 examples were created in its inaugural year. The following year, as the Great Depression strengthened its grip on the economy, the Willys-Overland Company downsized to just the Model 77. It was sold as three- or four-passenger coupes, a five-passenger sedan and a panel delivery.

In 1937, it was treated to a restyling and given a gently sloping grille and a rounded nose. The headlights were recessed into the edges of the fenders. Its appeal was not as appreciated during its era, but years later it was very popular among the hot rodders and drag racers. It was designated the Model 37 and it was popular among consumers, who purchased 63,467 cars. A recession the following year dwindled sales.

This example is a 1937 Willys Model 37 Sedan which has a very rusty body and throughout. There are dings and dents and the original upholstery is in poor condition. The exterior was painted gray but has lost its luster over the years. It is powered by a four-cylinder L-head engine that displaces 134 cubic-inches and produces 48 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The 100-inch wheelbase is held in place by a solid front axle and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs.

This car was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $3,000 - $6,000 and offered without reserve. Bidding reached $3,575 including buyer's premium. The lot was sold.
