this might be a good price.
“new engine, converted to 12v, new brakes, axles, gas tank, seats, tires, carburetor, fuel lines and pump. Hundreds of hours in the shop. Runs and drives perfect.”
Pics aren’t too helpful.
“Jeep cj3b dauntless v6 1954. 33 inch off-road tires. 10,000 pound winch. 4×4 high low.”
Runs and drives. but is missing a few things.
“Original Hurricane motor, original body with Willy’s stamps, hard top, new gas tank and lines, new fuel pump, new wheel cylinders, new brakes, tires in great shape, never seen salt and runs great.”
It is supposed to include a 3-point hitch.
“1947 Willy’s Jeep: Good running condition; very little rust; rare 3 point hitch, PTO snow plow mount, bumper, new tires, battery, brakes, master cylinder, etc.”
That’s a funky little winch on front.
“great condition rebuilt engine brakes wiring call make offer”
The body looks pretty good on this.
“Willys Jeep 1947. Very nice shape. Runs great. Good brakes ”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $3850.
(03/07/2015) Updated with a V-6.
“I have a 1950 Jeep Willys for sale. The good:It has a Buick 6 cylinder just like they put in later Jeeps(buick made them for Jeep). Went through last winter and had radiator ‘re-cored, all gaskets and maintenance items done, battery 1 year old, has the 3 speed with high and low gears. You could pull a yacht out of the lake with this!!, we installed a roll bar and seat belts.
The not so good: Its gonna need tires, they are old but holding air and still round. This vehicle is not a 65 mile an hour highway vehicle, I never take it over 45, Remember this Willys is65 years old! We used this vehicle to take wave runners in and out of the lake and for running around door county.”
Needs a few things.
“World War II 1943 MB Willys Jeep, new tires, frame off restoration 95% complete, not running at this time, all original body, ID tags on dash and frame”
Has a couple wrong parts, but there could still be value here.
“1942 willys jeep mb with 4×4 body in excellent shape runs and drives great serious inquiries only”
“I hav a 1940s willys runs and drives has no reverse due to somthing locked up in clutch just needs to b limbered up tires are bad and has no breaks or batteries ready to b restored trades?only for a wheeler call or txt ”
Unusual paint job.
“Original engine, transmission, rearend. New front bumper, springs, headlights, turn signals, brakes, brake lines, master cylinder, carb, fuel pump, fuel lines, fuel gauge, exhaust, wheel bearings, shocks, marine radio and speakers. Converted to 12 volt including new alternator, new ignition and wiring. Steering box rebuilt. Battleship grey with triple grey camo.”
Unclear if it runs or not.
“Great project! Wish I had the time and money to do it. I don’t know that much about it, so I would rather you come look vs asking me questions I can’t answer. Price is firm.”
Parts value, but the body looks toasted.
“1960 willys jeep forward control. this is the short bed 4cyl standard. pulled out of the woods in wisconson and hauled home. hasn’t run in years. no title. I have a 96 grand Cherokee 4.0 auto for the project also for an additional $600.00 thanks,”
Needs some work.

Given the warn overdrive, there is some value.
“This is a true military Jeep. I bought this solely for the purpose of the soft top bows for my resto project. This is what a trail rig, mud bogger, or hunting vehicle would have looked like from this early era of 4×4’s. There are some sought-after parts on it:
-working electric windshield wiper
-pintle hook & bumperettes
-wide off-road tires
This is unusual. Seems to have some MB parts and custom parts.
“I HAVE A OLD WILLYS JEEP THAT HAS BEEN MY GARAGE FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS. IT HAS A 1942 FORD TRUCK FRAME APPERANTLY BUT I AM NOT SURE OF ALL THE SPECIFICS. I PULLED IT OUT CHANGED THE OIL, OILED THE GENERATOR, PRIMED THE FUEL PUMP AND CLEANED THE POINTS AND BOOM, IT STARTED UP. IT HAS A BIKINI TOP TO IT. I GOT THIS ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO. I NEVER LICENSED IT. IT HAS A REGISTRATION PAPER DATING TO THE 60S. I SPOKE WITH DMV THIS WEEK AND THEY SAID MADISON SPECIAL REGISTRATION CAN TITLE THIS. THIS IS AN AS IS SALE. BATTERY IS DEAD SO YOU MIGHT WANT TO BRING ONE. OR I CAN PROVIDE ONE TEMPORARILY SO YOU CAN HEAR IT RUN.”
No pics provided. Lots of parts.
“1952 & 1953 M38A1 Willys Military Jeeps plus tons of extra parts!!! Moving and getting rid of my projects. I have 2 jeeps with titles, plus extra windshields (even a tilt out one), axles, seats (including a rear military fold down one), etc. I also have a brand new lift kit, adapters from Trans-Adapt to install a Chevy V8 & Turbo 350 Auto transmission, Willys transmissions, transfer cases, extra frame and lots of extra parts – Tilt steering, military gas tank & a rear gas tank from a CJ5, black out lights, too much to list it all – One of the frames has been boxed and body parts for one of the jeeps has been media blasted, but not primered, so there is some surface rust –
Also, I have an original metal hard top and a Hurricane F-head 4cyl. engine that was running when pulled – I’m sure I’m forgetting to list some things because there is so much included with this package – I may even be able to throw in a running Chevy 350 V8 or a 2.8 V6 with the deal – You will need a tow dolly and a truck or a car trailer to pick these up as they are mostly in pieces – One does roll and is in the process of being built – Call, text or email with questions, however cell service is not great here, so texting works best -”
