“This is a 1945 Jeep Willys MB (ID plate on the frame is: MB 435254), which means that this is a late-production MB with a date delivery around April 1945. The body has a few minor dents in the rear, the rest of the body is straight. Overall, it’s pretty solid. No rust, starts, runs and stops.”

    Looks like he found a nice jeep. I too have been looking for a jeep for many months and finally found one. Mine will need some work over the next year, a CJ2A with a Buick V6 and T-90.

    Dexter – do you have the serial number on the frame?

    BTW – my wife is from the Philippines and I’ve been over many times.

    Hi Simon! Nice to e-meet you. With Dave’s help, I’m just now learning more about these older Jeeps. Can you tell me exactly where to look on the frame? Thanks!

  4. Dexter

    Simon. Thanks for the link. I was able to locate the tag on the frame, and it states MB 435254
    WindyHill–The only info I can find on the winch is . . .

    The tub looks interesting, it has a CJ2 type fuel cap but also has the pioneer tool indents as well as a glovebox. Does it have tool boxes on each side of the back of the tub?

    Simon, do you mean the fuel cap or fuel inlet on the body? The fuel inlet is definitely an aftermarket add on as it’s put at an angle rather than having the ‘point’ of the inlet at the top.

    The tool box’s might be covered by the backs of the roll bar.

    Well, they sure are accessible! Great videos .. those are very helpful.

    I hadn’t noticed the hole in the hood. I’ll be posting some pics tonight with a flattie that shows how they dropped the engine and tranny to avoid the ‘hole in the hood’ problem caused by putting the F-heads in the flatties.

    I meant the fuel inlet. I can see from the videos that you have the tool boxes at the back. It also looks like the underside of the hood had the lubrication chart holder (it would have been where the darker green rectangle is).

    Have a good trip – my wife is from Laoag City, Ilocos Norte – are you going anywhere near there?

  10. Dexter

    I lived near Laoag for a few years. If I recall, it was a town called San Nicola/Dingras. You’re wife would know. But I’ll be spending most of my time in a town about 8 hours south of Ilocos Norte.
