Thanks to Doug for spotting this one. That MB/GPW needs to be shoveled so we can get a better look at it.
“Up for sale today are 3 1940’s vintage willy jeep cj2as. Two are complete, one is taken apart, but is all there. The green one runs and drives probably needs a tune up, gas tank has been lined and fuel system flushed has tow bar used behind motor home very good body, frame excellent. Red one; clutch is bad other than that it is good, body solid some rust frame excellent. Third one is in pieces and we have all of the parts solid drive train, frame. All go devil four cylinder engines. Thanks for your interest. I believe we have at least one title.”
This photo shows a MB/GPW that’s got a stretched rear. There’s no obvious indication an extension was tacked onto the back of a standard body. It was published in the May 7, 1946, issue of the Spokesman Review.
Interesting story from the St. Petersburg Times if accurate.
This is an interesting story.

“2- Willys FC 170 Pick up. Both have good rolling chassis combine or fix both- very restorable. I need to clean out the barn. Bill of sale only. Not running!”
It’s ready for a drive.
“For sale 1960 Jeep FC150-4 cyclinder 3 speed 4 wheel drive. It has been painted, but is not restored to original”
Looks in great shape.
“Selling a 1959 Jeep FC170 4×4 cab over truck super rare! Jeep is in really good condition! New paint. New custom bed. New front bumper off a 2015 Jeep Wrangler. New wheels and tires. New brakes all the way around including master cylinder, wheel cylinders, pads, e-brake cable, rear brake lines. All new fluids. Engine is a Willys Super Hurricane 226 straight 6 flathead based off the Ford Flathead that runs great backed by a 3spd manual transmission. 4WD works great. 4.88 gears in rear Dana 50 and front Dana 44. The Jeep is slow but great for off road. Great driver right now, I drive it a few times every week. Needs a back window which is easy because its flat but have the window seal. Gets looks every time I drive it, everyone loves it. Looking to buy a house and selling this would make a good down payment or I would keep it. Jeep is almost all original except the bed and front bumper. Been trying to keep it as original as possible. Great for driving around town and showing off at car shows.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $6000.
(02/12/2015) Looks solid.
“Awesome original numbers matching jeep! Fun to drive while splitting the gears of the stock 4 cylinder. Original seats and all the rare stuff….hard to find these anymore!”
Seller provides a detailed list of parts.
“I have owned this JEEP for over 20 years and it has never given me trouble and has always done what is asked of it. Traveling at highway speeds is no problem and it crawls fantastically well. Everything works on this very capable trail rig.
For those not familiar with a CJ-6, this is basically a ’62 CJ-5 that has been stretched 20″ between the door and the rear wheel arch at the factory. This longer wheel base makes the 6 more stable, and have a larger interior capacity than the 5. I am 6’3″ and have no problem with legroom in this JEEP.
UPDATE: Still Available.
(03/08/2015) Looks like a good price for a racer.

(10/06/2013) “Must sell my beautiful flatfender jeep, very nicely rebuilt including many, many new parts. All stock except for it was converted to 12 volts with an alternator. My first car was a ’47 Willys CJ2A, which I bought when I was 16 and sold when I was 26 because I needed a truck for my business. This Jeep was an attempt to recapture the good ol’ days, which really aren’t that easy to get back at 59! My attention is now on restoring a Jeep FC 170 and I need to sell the old ’46 to finance the project. It’s got a clear title and is ready to run.”
UPDATE: Back up for sale.
It runs. I haven’t seen many of these at this price.
“Scrambler in pretty good-age appropriate-condition. 6 cylinder stick. Runs quite well. 95,xxx miles. Typical but not egrigious rust. $3500, cheap! Trades will be considered. Sorry, broke my reading glasses; I cannot respond to texts.”
This is a combination of parts.
“Willys jeep 3a. Sits on a 1945 ford frame. Motor is a 231 odd fire and the transmission is a sm420 which may be hard to shift but has one hell of a granny low. The jeep is locked front and back with a 44 in the rear and a 30 in the front. The jeep now sits on a new set of 33″ tires not the 36″ tires that most of the pictures show. The price is $5000 or best offer but I will make a trade for a notchback mustang or a two wheel drive single cab Chevy 1500″
If it just has a bad starter, this might be a good price. No title.
