“For Sale
1943 Willys MB
Located in Carthage, NY

This is an original WW2 Jeep brought over from Europe in 2010. It was restored sometime in the late 80’s to early 90’s in Belgium. I bought it in Germany from one of my high school teachers in 2005 and over the years it has become part of the family. I have put a lot of time and money into this vehicle and hate to see it go but my life has taken an unexpected turn and the wife says I can’t sell one of the kids so here it is.

“This jeep is titled and registered (historic) in the state of NJ as a 1945 Willys MB. It was originally made by Willys for the US Army during WWII. Sensible, conservative frame-off resto in 2012. Starts, runs, shifts, steers, and stops great. No excessive smoke or leaks, no popping out of gear, and no rust. Primed with Rustoleum red oxide and finished with three coats of Gillespie 319. New repro (Beachwood OD 3) canvas seats. This is not a trailer queen. Turns heads in parades, at car shows, or as a daily runabout from April to October. Stored in heated garage on trickle charger every winter. If you’re a military buff, this jeep is ready for the hood and bumper stencils of your choice. If you just like old jeeps, this is the very first production model of the vehicle Enzo Ferrari called “America’s only true sports car.”

1942 MB Kenmore, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $10,000.

Looks like a good parade jeep.

“Restored 1942 Willy’s Military Jeep. This jeep was restored about 10 years ago to full military dress. It has a new tub and fenders. It has very few miles on it and has always been garaged and maintained. All mechanicals are in excellent working order and it’s very fun to drive. I call this a parade jeep because it has glossy paint that is easy to keep clean and looks nice in parades but irritates the purists. There are also a few scratches and other details that make it a nice parade Jeep but not necessarily a show winner. If you’re looking for show winner, this one isn’t for you. But if you want a nice driver, this is your Jeep”

1943 MB Amarillo, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: Was $12,500 **SOLD**

(02/10/2015) Sounds like this might have some interesting history.

“Up for sale is my 1943 Willys MB army jeep. It was motor pool refurbished by a WWII veteran and friends. I bought it from his son after he passed on. When I bought it I cleaned the fuel tank and lines and installed a new fuel pump. It runs okay but the engine needs a tune up. Brakes work good. Transmission runs quietly, but shifts poorly from 1st to second, and back. Tub was rusty but repaired. Needs new wiring, and generator rebuilt. Lights don’t work. Have speedometer and other gauges, but aren’t in great shape. Needs shocks. Comes with new NDT tires. Also have 5 combat wheels that go with it. This jeep has lots of extras. Clear open title. Reenactment quality. $12,500. I like to trade, but don’t ask unless you have a delorean or clean jeep wrangler /sahara that is paid for. Price is firm, I don’t have to sell. Don’t need a job, or help selling it. As always, local pickup and cash only. Serious inquiries only”
