UPDATE:  A Buyer bought this through the ‘buy now’ button. It will be restored.

“You are bidding on a 1942 Slat Grill Willys mb.  The serial number is MB 114517 DOD is 1/27/42 the Toe gusset # is 17920.

The Frame tag and dash data plate match.

Overall the jeep would make a great restoration project. Please take the time to go through all the pictures I’ve attempted to leave nothing out.

The jeep comes with a lot of the hard to find ORIGINAL parts such as an actual slat grill grill, Gas Gauge, 5 mph increment speedo (needs work the needle is broken), 30/30 amp guage, hinged filtertte, Rear seat, top bows, bumper, and an STL pintle.

The body is pretty straight  and solid with the exception of a patch in the passenger floor board, a little rust in that passenger seam, some skimmed areas of body filler on the tub and rust out in the fuel tank sump and shovel area. The hat channels are decent but some will need  a little repair. Again this is a very nice solid start (PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES IN SLIDE SHOW)

The frame is very nice and has the original bumper gussets and frame tag.

The motor does run when hot wired and the jeep rolls easy. The T84 transmission transfer all seemed to function just fine.

The motor is a bit of a mystery as the boss where the serial number should be is completely unstamped.  The casting at the lower part of the engine is correct for what should be in a slat so I think it would pass a two foot test  and I guess you could stamp the boss with what you want if you wanted it to pass for the actual original motor. The head is an early one with the two bolt thermostat.

I do have a number of other parts that will be included such as top bow brackets, body handles, and voltage regulator; These are all pictured in the slide show which has over 160 pics. (IF IT FAILS TO LOAD THE FIRST TIME HIT REFRESH AND if you still you still have problems let me know)

Don’t miss your chance to own this great Slat grill MB project, It has a lot of the hard and nearly impossible to find parts and a ton of potential.
I do have an open clear Idaho title from the last owner and I can put it in my name if this is any what of an issue for you.”
