“This is a running, clear titled, antique plated, 1954 Willys M170 Jeep Ambulance. This jeep is a good running machine that would be fun for parade or reenactment use. The red cross marked canvas is included. Has a WORKING SIREN. This is a turn key, ready to drive vintage military jeep. This was always a hit in the 4th of July in my town. The M170 Jeep was used as a front line ambulance by the army in the 1950s and 1960s and the Marine Corp used the M170 as a troop hauler and communications vehicle because of the extended body. Only approximately 6,000 M170 Jeeps were made, making this a tougher to find variation antique military jeep. Please ask all questions before you bid. Local Pick-Up Only. Cash or Money Order at Pick-Up or Check will be given 10 Days to Clear.”

“I have decided to let go of my rare M170 Willys Front Line Ambulance. This vehicle is in very good condition and has undergone a comprehensive refreshment with new wiring, a rebuilt engine, new hoses, clamps and fluids, a new top and canvas cushions and it comes with an in-and-out military snorkel kit and a folding stretcher.

The vehicle operates on a 24 volt system with new, twin in-line batteries as well as high and low positons for four wheel drive when taken out of two wheel drive for the pavement. Starts, runs, shifts and stops, just like it should. Note that this vehicle will top out at 50 mph, so it is not meant for the highway.

There are a few minor items that need attention such as fixing the gas gauge and oil temp gauge and possibly replacing the steering wheel (have the correct new one) if desired. Most anything is available through online suppliers. Also, the full enclosure and doors are available as well ($4,500).

This runs and drives.

View all the information on eBay


“We have for auction today our 1957 Jeep Willys M-170 Frontline Ambulance. This Jeep runs and drives but needs the water pump replaced to be truly “road ready”. I have the clean California title in hand. I do not have anything else for this Jeep but what is pictured. I do however have several more Willys models I will be listing in the future.

The engine starts and sounds good but the water pump does need replaced. Transmission shifts fine and all gears work correct. I have video of the Jeep running if anybody would like me to send it, just ask with an email to send to.

Cosmetically, this Jeep is a very worthwhile project as not many are still around. It appears to have the original paint but it is faded and not perfect, the only rust is on the bottom of the spare tire well (see close up pic). No previous body repairs or major damage noted. Windshield, tail lights and front lower marker lights need replaced. The previous owner had this Jeep stored indoors and since we have owned it we have done the same- stored indoors in the desert climate, it is very well preserved.

Interior is pretty much like you see it, bare except for the dash components. This Jeep is stored in Moreno Valley California, 92551 near March Air Base.”

1962 M-170 Shipshewana, IN **SOLD**


UPDATE: Was $3500. **SOLD**

Nick’s got this M-170 for sale.

“Clear title. Willys M170 frontline ambulance, essentially a stretched M38A1 or military CJ6. Only 4,155 were produced. Lots of new parts. I purchased this Jeep mostly disassembled. It has a correct F134 4 cyl but CJ engine. With a test ignition setup from my other Jeep, I was able to test fire this engine. Installed a new clutch, throwout bearing, pilot bushing, and return spring. Mated the engine to a shifting transmission/tcase.

The previous owner purchased all new brake parts including master cylinder, shoes, wheel cylinders, rubber and hard lines (hanging brake setup in the engine bay isn’t part of this). I took apart the front hubs to ensure parts were installed correctly. Ended up replacing wheel bearings, races, and repacked bearing grease. Once I reassembled and attempted to adjust the brakes, I found the hubs were warped and lost all interest. Major parts such as body are lightly assembled.

Was going to do a patina build. I pressure washed the tub to get down to original paint on the driver side. Started using aircraft stripper on the rest. Rest of body and seats are untouched from an M38A1. Tires are weather checked but good enough for cruising around. Misc parts such as driveshafts, correct tail lights, etc are on a skid.”
