  3. Jesse, this is part of our history, as you know. Send your post to a lot of people In ario and São Paulo, and we all abre that the condition of that Interlagos is rare, even here In Brazil! Wonder how that owner could achieve that high standards of originality! If you have more pictures of that Willys, could you send me? i would love to share them with other enthusiasts. Great pictures man, great pictures. Regards, Nik.

  5. There are at least 3 Interlagos here in the U.S., maybe 4. Two are intact. A third is derelict. The fourth is rumored to be a cabriolet in Long Beach, CA. This out of a total Brazilian production of 822 cars.

  6. It’s best to assume there are two. Any number of us have seen, felt, touched and driven the two. As mentioned prior, the third is derelict. Sufficiently derelict that it may not be an Interlagos after all, instead possibly being a French A108, A110, Dinalpin, Fiasa or even Bulgaralpin instead. Who knows? As for the fourth rumored to be in Long Beach, CA, it’s nothing more than a rumor. At this point, more ephemeral apparition than real, confirmed sighting. Bottom line: Let’s leave the number in the U.S. at two unless or until proven otherwise.

    1. Below, Bob Sharp of Brazil replies in Portugese, so I used Google Translate for Rex, and everyone else, to read in English. (Rex, thanks for the feedback! )
      Rex really the state of the car is very good. You are to be congratulated same. And as Pellegrino said up there, the Regi Rock Nat vai freak with Citroën to 11 L white background - as I freaked out! It was such a car (black, MY 1947) who learned to drive in 1952.

  7. Rex, realmente o estado do carro é muito bom. Você está mesmo de parabéns. E como o Pellegrino disse aí em cima, o Regi Nat Rock vai pirar com o Citroën 11 L branco ao fundo – como eu pirei! Foi num carro desses (preto, MY 1947) que aprendi a dirigir em 1952.
