Willys 8-80, 8-80D, 8-88 & 8-88A 1930-'33

Recommended Posts

This is peripherally related to Willys-Knights.  Perusing the Standard Catalog "Willys-Knight" topic, listed for 1930 is a Willys 8-80, 120"wheelbase, Continental engine model 14W, 245.4 ci L-head straight eight are noted as introduced in April 1930.  The model is continued into 1931 as the 8-80D, 120" wb, same body selection as the 66B, identically priced.  The 8-80D continues in 1932, is supplemented with an 8-88 (Silver Streak) on 121" wb same body selection as the first series 1932 66D but with a roadster added.  The second series 1932 66D had its body selection reduced to only two, a Custom sedan and Custom Victoria.   Finally, for 1933, the 8-88A (Streamline) reduces to only a coupe and sedan, the W-K 66E to only a sedan.

 

Being interested in the most obscure of the obscure, can someone enlighten us on these rare Willys models: do sales number exist for these and the 66B, D and E?   Its well known that W-O was hit hard by the deepening Depression, continuing these two middle-priced car series must have had some degree of positive response to continue them as long as they did.  So, if you are knowledgeable about these, please share it with us.
