1942 MB Minneapolis, MN $17,500


Mike’s has done a bunch of work on this MB. It looks like it might have a GPW frame. Maybe the body is a no-glove-box slat grille?

“This WWII jeep is in AWESOME Shape. NO RUST on frame or body or anywhere else. Purchased this last fall out of Denver. Engine was rebuilt literally a week ago. 2wd and 4wd high/low all work great. Just installed new correct wiring harness. All gauges and lights work including the blackout lights. Has clean MN title in hand. This jeep is going to be an awesome vehicle for someone to enjoy and pass on for generations and use for parades or to drive everyday if you want. It was always my dream to have one of these and I wish I could keep it but unfortunately I can’t. Happy to show it and take you for a ride weather permitting.

    Whenever I see those stenciled 5 point stars with the single point downwards it always looks wrong. Was there any period guidance as to how those stencils were to be used? It may be correct, but it looks awkward, kind of like when US soldiers were their US flag correctly on their right shoulder.

    An awesome jeep. Wish I could afford. At 16 years old I had a hand built 1947 Willys Military jeep for my birthday. Sure wish still had it. Good luck selling. Just cannot afford.

    The no glove box /door does look a little out of place, but it still looks like a very nice Jeep.
    I know this is not the case but if you ever see pictures of Canadian vehicles in WWII, Jeeps included, most of the time the stars were intentionally placed upside down (on the side and on hood), more or less to denote that it wasn’t a US vehicle.

    Besides the stars being applied “upsidedown” another thing that bugs me is painting a WW2 jeep the wrong shade of green, not olive drab. He could have just color matched the spare tire mount or Jerry can. He did all that work and painted it wrong. To me it needs to repainted, and that would lower the price.
