Joe Hrudka- founder of Mr Gasket Co. was a willys fan. He started his business by selling gaskets he made from the trunk of his car. By the late 60’s had gross sales of a couple million. Sold the company shortly after and stayed on until the mid 70’s. He bought the company back in the early 80’s for a fraction of what he sold it for. Then started acquiring companies in an attempt to grow. He purchased many popular aftermarket companies like Hurst, Thrush and Eagle. Although his attempt failed and had many years of huge losses. He definitely left his mark in the industry. His white ‘33 was built by Lil John. Pinkee’s changed the car up for another owner. And I threw in a couple ‘60’s gassers. Not sure if these belonged to him or was sponsored by him. Either way. It’s #willyswednesday #willys .
