1942 MB Slat Grille Alberta, Canada **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on ebay.

Looks like a good restoration.

“Very rare 1942 Willys ‘Slat Grill’ MB with original numbers matching 4 cylinder 60 hp, 134ci L-head ‘Go Devil’ engine with only 1660 miles on it!. Only 200 ‘slat grills’ are estimated to have survived through 2006, according to Army Motors, the official magazine of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association. The last Willys Slat Grill was S/N 125807 – this one is SN 124833 and was delivered to the US Army on March 5, 1942. A full frame-off rebuild was completed in 2009 and she has appeared at hanger dances, parades, Veteran Day’s events, air shows, and USO shows. This is a true show vehicle and not something you take to the bush for hunting. It comes complete with an all canvas top, shovel and axe attached to the side, upgraded brakes, a 12 volt electronic ignition system, and a copy of a M1 Automatic Carbine on the dash. This is a true gem and is garaged – does not sit outside in the weather. A rare opportunity to get a piece of history. Soon enough these will only be found in museums or in private collections. A rare piece of US history to be admired. Shipping or transportation is the responsibility of the buyer. Taylor’s transport does excellent shipping from Canada to USA at reasonable prices. Seller reserves the right to pull the listing if sold before the auction ends. Good luck and thanks for bidding.”

This is a very low mileage original 1945 Willys MB Jeep. I purchased this Jeep from the original family in 2005. It was in a heated storage area for the last 35 years. The Jeep was still in the crate when purchased. I am the second owner of this fine piece.  This MB still has all original canvas seats cushions, crash pads, door straps, original data plates and the original windshield glass (with dates). The Jeep also has all (5) of its original Goodyear tires with the synthetic S3 markings. This is one of the nicest untouched MB’s ever offered for sale – a rare opportunity to purchase a Christmas present in this condition.”

1945 MB Eugene, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5800

(05/29/2012) The seller has been slowly restoring this.  Look solid, though it isn’t a perfect restoration which the seller notes.

“1945 Willys MB. Original WWII Jeep. Painted a year and a half ago in the correct shade of OD green. Body is straight and is a real head turner. Original motor is rebuilt with less than 30 miles on it. Runs perfect, starts instantly. 12V conversion. Has wrangler seats. Was converted into a civilian jeep years ago and I have been in the process of putting it all back. Really cool jeep. Tires are 7.50x16s with correct 16″ military wheels. Keep in mind this is NOT a perfect restoration. I never intended it to be, but it is a really cool Jeep.
What I am looking for is a muscle car or hot rod to trade for. When I say muscle car, I mean pre-1972 and a V8. I value the Jeep at around $7500 so let me know what you have.L”

1945 MB Miami, FL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: International, MB, Unusual • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

(06/14/2012) Well, this has an unusual history.

“This Jeep Willys Overland MB 1946 was purchased from an Italian Army Surplus Sale during the sixties, subsequently the car was restored for my late Mother by Carrozzeria Pavesi Rolls Royce and Bentley, Milano, Italy. The restoration was focused on making a glamorous car with all original parts, just the roof and side panels are a work of art…. The dashboard was fitted with a wood panel to increase the good look and the original plates where fitted to the glove compartment box door instead of the engine compartment. The car is fitted with a Webasto gas heather for cold climates. The car was stationed in St. Tropez, France for many years and then was sent to the Swiss Alps in St. Moritz where it stayed until I imported it into the US in 2003. It is a great car, all systems works very good, steering, brakes, engine, etc… it would make a great addition to a Summer/Winter Home, it is great on snow, beats any modern car…. The attention to details in this car is fabulous.”

The eMB from MD Juan

• CATEGORIES: Features, MB • TAGS: , .

Alex spotted an article about eMBs. The Electric MB is supposed to be made to order and cost 755.000 PhP, which is about $18,500.  I did not see the electric jeep listed at MD Juan’s website, though I didn’t do an exhaustive search.

According to this excerpt from the article, “the [electric] Willy’s MB which will be powered by a 4-kilowatt, 48-volt electric motor deriving energy from eight units 6-volt batteries. Its manufacturer – MD Juan Enterprises – calls it the eMB.

The new model of the vintage MacArthur jeep, the latest product of MD Juan Enterprises and PhUV, Inc., made it debut last week at the Philippine Die and Mould Association exhibit at the World Trade Center. The body of the electric MB was made using locally-made dies and moulds and manufactured in MD Juan’s stamping plant.

Here’s the official press release from MD Juan.
