“1943 Willys with 20,000 miles on the odometer! Original flathead 4 cylinder engine runs perfect. It also has the coveted warn overdrive behind the original 3 speed trans and tranfercase. This is pretty much a turn key vehicle. I’d trust it to drive me anywhere. It comes with a tow bar to pull behind a truck or rv. I have doors and I have a set of original Willys wheels with military tires for it as well. We’ve been back and forth on selling it, and we’ve decided it’s time to let it go. I just had the carb rebuilt yesterday and have a receipt to prove it. I drove it nearly every day all summer, and it never failed me. I’ll consider an offer from serious buyers, but please don’t waste my time on a low ball offer. This jeep is the real deal, and I’ll keep it before I give it away for dirt cheap”

“Note: This Jeeep does not have a title or a serial number. The engine has a serial number but its not correct for this jeep. It will be sold with a bill of sale only. Don’t read any further if you can’t deal with buying it on a bill of sale only. Getting a title is possible through a title company or through the DMV in your state once you purchase it depending on the laws in your state.

Take a look at this beautiful 1944 Willys MB. (Dated by date stamp on axle 6-8-44)

This started out as a rescue of many disassembled Willys parts from a deceased collector in central New Jersey in 2014. The frame was too far gone and missing its serial #plate anyway, so I opted for a new frame from DL Bensingers.

“Registered (non-op currently) as a 1967 due to a motor swap, this Flat Fender Jeep is actually a 40’s or early 50’s Jeep Willys. The motor is a Chevy 283 V8 from a 67′ Chevelle. This Jeep is full of goodies and smog exempt. After owning her for more than 10 years (Originally a bachelors toy), it’s time to find a new home as there’s little room for kids & dogs in a Willys. One guarantee, This Jeep makes people smile, especially children when they see it. Like a big bright yellow Tonka toy. It’s also a blast to take to classic car shows as it’s always one of the oldest vehicles in attendance and often the most unique (not just another hotrod/muscle car in the lineup, and the only on that can go OFF the highway).
