1941 Slat Grille MB Laramie, WY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

“For sale is a 1941 Willys “slat grill” MB Army Jeep and a matching 1943 Bantam military trailer. Both are fully licensed and titled in the state of Wyoming.

The frame number on the jeep is MB108308, meaning that it was the 8308th production jeep delivered to the Army Quartermaster in WWII. There were more than half-a-million jeeps delivered to the military during WWII from Willys (the “MB”) and Ford (the “GPW”).

There is a weird screw-up on the body, in that early production jeeps featured a “script” from the manufacturer on the back. I purchased a reproduction rear body panel and, somehow, the Willys script was stamped on the wrong side. It’s an easy fix that anyone reasonably adept at welding can handle and I probably should have taken care of it by now, but I actually enjoyed leaving it that way, largely to drive the perfectionists crazy.”
