1941 MB Morton Grove, IL $24,999

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: The seller of this jeep suggested to at least one potential buyer that for more pics and a description, the potential buyer could download a book from Shutterfly for $70. While this may or may not be a scam, I feel such a suggestion is inappropriate. Moreover, the seller refuses to be contacted by phone (text only), even though the seller contacted me by email.

“Restored to 90% specification using original parts and other high quality reproductions. THIS IS NOT THE 1945 WILLY’S MB! The 1941 model is exceedingly rare and differs from the 1945 Jeep in more than 30 ways.

Some of the notable differences that are found on this Willy’s are: rubber steering wheel, brass framed instruments, pumpkin air filter, distinct fuel tank and filler, seat upholstery, and gears; heavy drive shaft, rectangular gearbox cover, glass fuel filter, single-piece rims, and more that are detailed in a book included with the purchase.

The vehicle is exceptionally unique and has a clean title. I accept only serious offers. TXT only, please.”

New plugs, belts, welded a hole in the gas tank, new water pump, new thermostat and new oil filter. I have also installed a tow bar. Still needs new battery and the tires are worn. Recently moved and just have time or a good place to wrench on it plus my son lost interest in working on it with me so figured it’s time for a new home. It needs the carb re-installed, fluids, battery and should be ready to run. Has some electrical issues but the lights work. Great project keep for someone to finish. $3000 or best offer.”
