1943 Metamet-Modified Flattie UK £10,995

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPW (Ford MB), MB • TAGS: .

Blaine spotted this Metamet-modified jeep that was owned by the Metamet family. This doesn’t seem to match any of the models on the list of models from the Metamet brochures. The split window windshield doesn’t not appear to fold down, the doors look to be of a suicide style, and the top appears to be a soft top. It’s kind of Jeepsterish.

https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1468062

Metamet-jeep-uk

“This is actually a 1943 ww2 jeep that has been converted into a 4wd roadster , lots of the original inner bodytub remain, Its running and driving but will need renovating , chassis is superb condition , there are lots of options with this jeep, leave as is, change it a bit or revert it back to a ww2 jeep again, Its the only one made by the Metamet company back in the late 1950s, TAX and MOT exempt, UK registered, this unique ww2 jeep conversion, been stored unused for 40 years, this conversion done by the well known metamet jeep conversion company in the 1950s/ 60s, this model never ended up going into production and this is the only one made despite it being shown in the sales brochure, I have fitted original jeep wheels and personally think it looks better and gives it back a bit of its former DNA but the original wider road wheels and tyres go with it

It was kept by a member of the Metamet family as his private vehicle until he recently passed away , this willys mb jeep was built in 1943 and served in the war , the dvla mot history records show that it left the military service and was registered for road use in 1958, sometime after this date the conversion was done , Its been stored unused for the last 40 years , engine is now running , I have a whatsap of the jeep driving, it will need recommissioning brakes refurbishing, fuel line checking through but the chassis is excellent , exhaust all good, radiator holds water and it starts and drives , the engine is smooth, includes extra fitments like free wheeling hubs, radio, clock, folding front bench seat , sports car type fold down hood, hinged doors, drop down boot, this is the only one of its kind in the world and should really be in a collection or museum , most of the original bodytub remains , It could easily be re bodied back to its former ww2 jeep bodywork with a new reproduction body tub , large leather bound file containing many photos and drawings of the build has since been found and I’m hoping to collect that soon”

1960 DJ-3A Goshen, NY $4000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $4000.

Austin is selling this DJ-3A, which appears to be a combination of WWII parts and a DJ-3A. The axles, transfercase, transmission and rims appear to be from an MB or GPW. The hardtop is a later model version of the standard DJ-3A hardtop (has the larger rear glass door). It’s unusual to see a hardtop on a DJ-3A with the side glass (usually only seen on CJ-5s). My guess is the engine is from a DJ-3A as is the chassis.

You can contact Austin at ADewitt @ itcservices.com (remove the spaces around the @ before emailing).

“Today I put my Willys MB project up for sale. It is a project but has quite a few sought after pieces if you are into rock crawling. I’ve had this since 2018 with the hopes of creating an off-road vehicle I could rock crawl, but still be street-able. As you can see, that hasn’t happened yet and while I’d love to get to it someday in the near future, I wanted to give someone else a shot at fixing this thing up right. I’d like to sell this as a complete project but for the right price, anything can be bought.

Pros

Willys MB tub, grill, fenders, hood
M38 windshield
Spicer 18 transfer case core(needs rebuilt)
Short width Dana 30 axle with factory disc brakes from a CJ5
