No title.

“everything is original, I believe I have most of the parts. Engine is not seized and appears to have good compression. It will be a fun project.”

    I bought this one. It’s a 43′ MB , #220742 D.O.D is 3-23-43 , the boy and frame numbers match, engine is from a GPW.

    Congrats, Troy! It looks solid and promising. Were the front clip, seats and windscreen included? Still worth the price even if not.
    Seller hasn’t removed the CL ad yet, as of Wednesday morning.

    Joe, seats, windshield, fenders and hood missing. David, the engine number looks like “GPW 36983” but I have to clean it up to see for sure. The “story” is it came out of Brunswick Naval Air station surplus in 1962. Obviously somebody took it apart and that’s as far as they got. The frame is nice, straight and frame horns not screwed with which is good. Ironically I bought MB # 234360 last year right near this one. It’s all matching numbers, tub, frame and engine. Also torn down and also a project but well worth doing because of the matching numbers.
