1942 MB Rochester, WA $9500

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE II: Still Available

UPDATE: I mentioned that this could be brought back to original without too much expense. Brian challenged me on that claim (thank you) and determined it could roughly cost about $5800 to do so. Therefore, I shall modify my earlier claim and say that this could be returned to a more militaryish theme without too much effort or expense. 🙂

    Just out of curiosity, I decided to figure up the cost of parts that it would take to make this jeep mostly correct. This is for mostly repro parts priced from one dealer. The cost could be less and it could be more depending on how correct you wanted it to be, where you buy the parts, and if you use repro or original parts. I came up with a cost of around $5,800.

    Good exercise; and I stand corrected. The more I look at this the more I see what you mean. I probably should have said something like “it could be made reasonably original without too much effort”, since it looks pretty sound.

    I get a little bored of my own comments sometimes, so I try to think of something a little different to say. It doesn’t always work out well … lol.

    Thanks for doing the work on that. I’ll update the post.

    There is some expensive stuff you would have to buy but its surprising how quick those $5 to $30 parts add up.

    While it’s too bad this wasn’t keep original military, it would be a shame now to ruin that beautiful metallic blue paint job. I’d recommend enjoying this as-is, and slowly (affordably?) collect the windshield, spare tire bracket, steering wheel, rims, non-directional tires, and many other MB parts for its next restoration down the road a few years.
