1944 MB Charleston, SC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $15,000.

Includes a total of five combat rims.

“FOR SALE: 1944 MB 307788 (frame #) with newly rebuilt engine MB 441194 (7-5-44) and what appears to be the original tub (#2109). This jeep comes with its own title.

$15,000 located in Summerville, SC.

I originally began this restoration in September of 2011. All of the major components (axles, transmission, transfer case, etc.) were opened, inspected and items repaired/replaced as needed. Installed reproduction MV Spares wire harness and utilizes the original 6-volt electrical system. The tub was taken down to bare metal with the rust-through areas replaced. By no means is this factory-style tub: I did not bother smoothing out the majority of the dents. The original bumper is not perfectly straight, either.

The MB engine was just recently rebuilt. The machine work was done in September 2014 and the engine was assembled in October. NO CRACKS were found in both the head and block. The pistons were bored out to .060. Number 4 cylinder was sleeved. The crankshaft mains were ground to .020 and the rods were .040. The machinist also removed the old valve guides and installed the new guides. The head was decked to ensure level.”

    This one is mine. Two combat rims are on the jeep. The three rims on the ground are combats, too, although one rim should only be used as a spare. Thanks!
