This article is about the car. For the manufacturer of the same name, see Willard (manufacturer).

The Willard is a four-door sedan available in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is manufactured by Willard in the HD Universe.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Willard in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas assumes the appearance of a contemporary Chrysler C-Body sedan. It is chiefly based on the Dodge Dynasty, and to a lesser extent, the 1988–1993 Chrysler New Yorker Salon, with a grille derived from a 1983–1984 Toyota Cressida.

Grand Theft Auto IV

in Grand Theft Auto IV, it strongly resembles a 1986–1991 Buick LeSabre, with the only notable difference being the configuration of its taillights. The overall design of Willard also resembles the Volvo 700 and 900 series models. The overall body of the car remains similar to its Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas renditon, with a few changes to the headlights and taillights.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The performance of the Willard is as expected from a below standard sedan. The car's 6 cylinder engine in a FR layout is rather mediocre, and as such has average speed and high-climbing capabilities. Its steering is very unbalanced, at high speed it can go from under-steer to over steer in the blink of an eye due to its awful suspension. Crash deformation, however, is good compared to other vehicles of its class.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The GTA IV rendition of the Willard is powered by a high-displacement V8, paired to a four-speed gearbox, no longer in a FR layout, but rather in FF. The Willard possesses a top speed of 81 MP/H, but suffers from horrible acceleration, especially uphills, and often taking a long time to even get close to top speed. The Willard has great handling, but tends to smoke its tires a lot while turning and during takeoff. Overall, the Willard can be thought of as a slower Hakumai, but stronger and more luxurious.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Willard in Grand Theft Auto IV is notably rare, knowing largely to the fact it does not spawn in traffic as frequently as other vehicles. If it does appear, however, the car can be found in the following areas:

  • Around Meadow Hills, Dukes, the Hove Beach/Firefly Projects area of Broker, and Little Bay, Bohan.
  • May occasionally spawn near the Broker safehouse when driving towards Firefly Island when doing the mission Bleed Out.
  • In southern Alderney while driving a Schafter or a Cognoscenti.
  • Rarely spawns in Berchem and Acter when driving a Premier.
  • Rarely spawns in Firefly Projects when driving a Patriot.
  • Spawns more frequently when the player is driving a Police Patrol.
  • May spawn during Drug Delivery side missions. [citation/verification needed]
  • Appears more frequently in The Lost and Damned.
  • Dardan's Willard can be obtained in Bleed Out, although the method requires some patience. To obtain the Willard, simply bring a vehicle with decent traction - a Rancher or Rebla is a good choice. Instead of entering the basketball courts where Roman is, push the Willard until you reach the Broker Safehouse, and then push it into the parking space. Fail the mission, and then retry. It should be noted that the Willard will remain locked until you complete the mission and save the game.
  • In the mission Pegorino's Pride, whilst chasing the Pavanos, two Willards will appear as scripted traffic and block the road. To obtain one, kill the driver, then kill Pegorino to fail the mission and store the car in a parking space outside a safehouse.
  • If the player fails the mission Babysitting, they will drop Derrick McReary off in his green Willard, allowing them to drive it.


Grand Theft Auto IV



3D Universe

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • Sometimes, the police dispatch will refer to the Willard as the "Willard 500". It is unknown if this is the real name of vehicle, the beta name, or an oversight by Rockstar Games.
  • The Willard has a unique horn in Grand Theft Auto IV, which can also be heard at certain points of the city ambiance in the game.
  • The Willard is one of the five cars in GTA IV referred to by name. In the mission It's Your Call, Roman Bellic says that the Albanian loan sharks he owes money to drive "some shitty beige Willard." The other four cars are Gracie Ancelotti's pink Feltzer, Jimmy's silver Blista Compact, the Police Stockade from Tunnel of Death, and the Romero used in Undertaker. All other vehicles are referred to by the type of vehicle they are (car, truck, SUV, etc.). However, it's also possible Roman could have been referring to the car's eponymous manufacturer.
  • The Willard in GTA IV has a minor texture glitch, where if the front windshield is damaged extensively, it suddenly turns white and lacks texture and a sheen. This glitch is also present in the Futo.
  • If the Willard is cleaned at Car Wash, the front doors may open when the car drives out of the car wash.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The car is absent from Grand Theft Auto V. However, either the vehicle itself or the manufacturer is mentioned in the police scanner files in the sound clip named "0x0E0F4D3B".
