“1941 Willys MB Jeep – Slat Grille
Asking $8500 or best reasonable offer.
This was the 1st year Jeeps were ever made. Has the one year only slat grille which is very rare.
Willys made its first 25,808 MBs Jeeps with a welded flat iron “slat” radiator grille which were produced from November 18, 1941 to March 6, 1942.
Runs & drives great! Solid Body no rust. Tires like new.
This Jeep has a Buick V6 Engine.
The Buick V6 engine tooling was sold to Kaiser-Jeep in the early 60’s and they were introduced as the “Dauntless V6″ into the Jeep CJ5, CJ6 & C101 for the 1966 model year. The 225 Buick V6 was offered as an option over 4 cylinder engines in 1966-1971 CJ5 and CJ6 Jeeps.
Great for a usable driver or is a great starter vehicle for a complete restoration!!
Has a clear AZ title.”

    Does it really have a 5 digit serial number? To be fair, the seller does specify “with slat grille”… not claiming it IS A slat grill.
    I’m tempted to go look at this one (near where I work)… but have nowhere near the money being asked. I’d just like to see it. Hope they post more pics.

    From the info he supplied on ‘g503’ website, it appears it is in fact a slatgrille…what’s left of it anyway. $12,000 is too much for what he’s got.

    Pics now posted! Body appears like new (but what model?): while there’s no tailgate it has no tool indents but has side fuel filler…
    Kind of cool as a V-6/8 powered modified… not 4 cylinders as stated in the ad.

    Dan,

    The first 25,000 MBs were built using a slat grille, or a grille with flat steel bars. Many of the earliest did not have a glove box either. The one pictures above has a few updates.
