1945 MB? Springfield, OR No Price


Lots of mods. I’d be surprised if this was “plated” as having served in Pearl Harbor during WWII (obviously wouldn’t have arrived until sometime in 1945 at the earliest if it is a 1945).

“One of a kind. 1945 Jeep. 6 inch lift. On 35s. Full arb air lockers in each axle. On board air compressor and air tank for tires also. Custom roll cage. CD player. Has soft top and doors all in good condition. I’ve owned this for over 10 years. My boys are beginning to out grow it. So thinking I may sell this. Or trade it. It runs great. Plenty of power. 4 speed manual. Dual transfer case. Warn winch. Everything works except the speedo but I just go with flow of traffic. Not sure how to put a price on such a rare unique piece of American history. Plated and documented it’s been in Pearl Harbor. World war 2. So I’m taking offers. I paid 8k for this and have put in a few grand over the years for suspension and tires are new. Mileage is unknown”

(09/22/2020) Not quite all restored, as the data plates have paint on them a few other issues.

“This authentic well-kept piece of history can be yours. This 1942 WWII Willy CJ Ford Jeep is a classic and has been restored and garaged for the past 20 years. Runs great, the Willy straight four engine was completely overhauled, like new, full canvas package, full set of manuals and maintenance guides and receipts.
