Very very rarely spawns in Eastern Broker.
|Where can you find this car outside of missions?|
|I've always loved this car. It's a nice, old sedan that's pleasantly vanilla and unoffensive to looks at. The name is a bit of an enigma, though... Willard Willard. I have, however, developed a theory regarding this car's redundant name.|
So, the Willard company was first introduced in GTA: San Andreas. One of the earlier known car companies in GTA since it wasn't until GTA IV that every vehicle was assigned a manufacturer. The evidence of the company exists on a billboard in Rodeo, Los Santos, advertising the Elegant, a car based on the Buick Roadmaster. On the billboard, the car was shown to be manufactured by Willard, establishing the company's likeness to Buick.
Also present in GTA: San Andreas was a car called the Willard (based on the Dodge Dynasty), which obviously shares the same name as the largely Buick-based company mentioned above. I believe that the Willard car in SA would not have been manufactured by the Willard company, being based on a Dodge and whatnot (although Willard does make a couple of cars based on Ford products in GTA IV but shhhh). If all cars had been assigned to companies in SA, the Willard would've likely been made by Bravado or maybe Schyster.
The point that I'm trying to make is that I believe the Willard car and the Willard company in SA are entirely unrelated, and share the same name due to developer oversight. I think that at some point after GTA:SA was released, Rockstar noticed that these two otherwise unrelated entities shared the same name. Perhaps they decided to lampoon their little mistake in GTA IV by taking the Willard car, altering its styling to make it look more Buick-like, but still keeping its boxy, mid-sized 1980s design so it would still be recognizable as a Willard, and giving it to the Willard brand for kicks and giggles.
I could be wrong but it's just a theory.

The aforementioned beige Willard owned by Dardan Petrela can be obtained in the mission "Bleed Out". After Roman is beat up by some loan sharks and Niko rushes to his aid, Dardan is seen entering his Willard and proceeds to flee the scene. After a chase sequence, he abandons his car at the Twitchin's Sugar Factory in BOABO, where the player follows him up some stairs and into a room where he is killed. You may then enter either Dardan's car or Roman's taxi and use the car you're driving to push the other car down to Roman's cab depot and finish the mission. It's a bit of a pain getting the two cars out of East Hook simultaneously, but it's worth it for a car this rare. I've used this method to get my hands on Dardan's beige Willard a number of times in the past.
There's also another green Willard you can obtain later on in the game, presumably owned by Derrick McReary, from failing the mission "Babysitting" at pretty much any point, if I recall correctly.

Look at the previous comments, and if you're on PC...get a trainer?
|One of those Albanian blokes drives this car in a beige colour. WHERE can I get this rarity, PLEASE?|
|My absolute favorite car in the game! It looks more like a 1985 Buick Electra than a LeSabre: farm3.staticflickr.com/2796/4381893615_fa887bba4f.jpg|
|Who changed this to Cavalier? It's a LeSabre. Look at the overall car people! Not some minor detail that may or may not look more like a Cavalier.|
|Most DEFINITELY Buick LeSabre, 86 or 87.|
|A Proton in the US? Seriously? Stupid uneducated foriegners.|
|I dont think GTA makers would be basing on such unknown car|
|Honestly I see nothing from Proton Saga here|
|How is everyone calling this a friggin Chevrolet Cavalier? It looked like a Plymouth Aries or Dodge Dynasty the first time I saw it. The hood emblem just screams it!|

Star Wars Fanatic said, "One of the rarest vehicles in the game." That's part of the answer you should know. But if you really want this car, I suggest you steal the car after you kill Dardan in the mission "Bleed Out." And here are some places where you can find the car, according to Grand Theft Wiki:

|Where can you find this in the game?|
Road Wars Fanatic
|Default Stations: Massive B soundsystem 96.9 or Tuff Gong Radio|
|Well it is the same base only this for example has a hood ornimate makes me think LeSabre because it seems the more "Buick" thing to do so yes it is still most likely a LeSabre.|
|may be its the same base, Chevy and Buick is the property of GM, they use the same base for creat 2 cars|
|Welcome, Vanishing Point. Since you just started here, I'll go easy on you. To me, this looks like a 1987 LeSabre. The body shape, the grille, the body line and some other things. But this does have some of the 1987 Cavalier into it, such as the headlights and windows. So maybe a Cavalier. Anyway, enjoy IGCD. |

|yes you right upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0e/88-90_Chevrolet_Cavalier_sedan.jpg/800px-88-90_Chevrolet_Cavalier_sedan.jpg|
|Wait a second, this is actually a 1987+ LeSabre, because of the grille.|
|1986 Buick LeSabre, definitly not a Dodge Dynasty.|

|I can't find one anywhere?|
|I finally found one in light blue, i have never seen one until now!|

Because nothing has "proved against" it being a LeSabre. All I see are posts of people naming random cars that it looks nothing like, such as LeBaron and Dodge 600.
|Well with so many people suggesting different things, what should i change it to? If i change it to say.... a Cadillac Cimarron half of the members on this page will go crazy with me|
|yeah, looks like a lebaron sedan, maybe 1987?|

Incorrect. Below is a 1987 LeSabre 4 door:
Since the video game car has non-composite headlights, it's a 1986 LeSabre. I can't see how anyone with eyes can dispute that.

Agreed, this is a Cavalier for sure

Yes, this is a 4-door, LeSabre is only a coupč!
|1982-86 Pontiac 6000|
|I've already said this in the main comment page, but I'll like to reiterate that the Willard looks much more like the Cadillac Cimarron than the Dodge Dynasty:|
|Definitly a Dodge Dynasty "Willard"|
