1944 MB Westerville, OH BaT


Michael shared this MB with a trailer on the Bring-a-Trailer site.


“This 1944 Willys MB was owned by a World War II U.S. Air Force veteran for approximately 40 years before being inherited by the seller’s spouse in 2019. The truck is powered by a 134ci inline-four mated to a three-speed manual gearbox and a dual-range transfer case, and the body was refinished during the family’s ownership in green with military-style livery and features a canvas soft top, a pioneer tool kit, a jerrycan, and more. The included Willys trailer was purchased and refurbished approximately 25 years ago. This Willys Jeep and trailer are now offered by the seller with period WWII memorabilia, non-operational display machine guns and other items, a technical manual, service records from the past 40 years, and a clean Ohio title in the seller’s spouse’s name.

The seller states that the body was disassembled, refurbished, and repainted in olive drab green with reapplied insignias and livery in the 1990s. The included trailer underwent a similar refurbishment. Additional exterior features include a canvas soft top, a hinged dual-pane windshield, a fender-mounted Federal Enterprises siren, camouflage netting, blackout driving lights, and more. The seller notes that two non-operational display machine guns are included in the sale and can be mounted to the central turret….”

    Hi Jim,

    I’m not sure what it is ‘worth’, but I imagine it will fetch between $15-$20k (It would probably go for more in a bigger auction like Barrett Jackson). It’s not a perfectly stock specimen, but looks in good shape. I’m wondering why there is a wood block(?) on the brake pedal?
