1943 MB Tucson, AZ $3500

• CATEGORIES: MB

Has a variety of mods.

“I have a 1943 Willy’s jeep flat fender. This has a chevy conversion, I don’t remember if it was a 327 or 350. The only reason I am selling this is I don’t have time to work on it. It does come with a tow bar and heavy duty winch on the front. When we picked this up it was a ranch jeep and had carpet in it. We took the seats and carpet out. I was going to redo the center console metal work. I have two sets of seats that will come with the jeep and I am also have the back seat that was in it. I can put this on my trailer and deliver if needed for a fee depending on distance.”

1943 MB Salado, TX $2200

• CATEGORIES: MB

Seller has other jeeps for sale and is willing to bundle multiple jeeps.

“For Sale: 1943 Willys MB Open Jeep. No motor installed. A 1946 CJ2A motor will go with this jeep when it is sold along with many other spare parts including the original military windshield frame that has glass installed in it and all the brackets. The transmission, transfer case and driveline are all complete as shown. The jeep will need considerable work to get it back to it’s original configuration along with the following known items that are missing from the Jeep: The oil bath air filter assembly, the intake cross-over tube, the carb, the intake, the exhaust, the fuel pump, the driver’s seat, the fuel tank, the grab handles, the footman loops, the driver’s side rear view mirror and, I’m sure, many other parts I’m forgetting. I’m liquidating all my jeeps and would be negotiable on all of them if purchased collectively. This would be a great starter project for any military historian, father-son project or military vehicle collector.
*If you’re reading this add the jeep you see pictured is still available. All my jeeps are located at our ranch, about 14 miles SSE of Temple Texas, seven miles due East of the town of Salado. Please voice call or text for an appointment to come and see them in person. Offers over the phone will not be considered serious.”

“The serial number matches to ones manufactured in 1943. By what I can tell online, many army jeeps received a year designation when the were sold to the public, not when they were actually made.

This jeep was purchased by my Great Uncle in 1945 when he returned home from WWII. It has been in the family since. He and his brothers only ever used it to plow snow (there is a plow included if you want it).

The white top is a Korean War era top that they added later. 9,000 miles. Not a typo. It wasn’t driven much. (I’ll change it to the exact mileage later – I don’t have that info on me right now).

I HAVE THE TITLE. I know this is very important and many people don’t have the title for a jeep of this era. It costs $500 to replace a title.
