UPDATE: Price dropped to $1500.
(03/29/2015) Nick’s got this MB for sale.
“Description: For sale is a 1942 Willys MB, date of delivery 12-2-42. I brought it home and cleaned it up and thought about parading around after restoration, or even driving it the way it is because it looks evil. Then it hit me that I’m leaving for college in the fall and won’t have the time (or money) this Jeep deserves. I’m finishing up a full restoration now. After the beast survived the war, it was sold as surplus to a farmer in southern Indiana. He used it to pull and haul equipment from his lake house to the farm. Unfortunately it was never titled because there was never a reason to, but I will provide the past two bill of sales and make another highly informative one. The body is rough but savable and the floor is very solid. It has a 2A windshield and CJ rims. Mechanically it has a truck engine and T90 tranny; the engine/tranny is free and was told it last ran about 5 years ago. The frame is very solid and matches the body serial numbers. It has the full floating rear end and correct front end. On the hood the original military numbers are peeking out. This veteran is definitely a candidate for restoration or run it the way it is, there’s something special in a non-restored Jeep too. I hate to see it sitting around for years while I get on my feet and would rather see someone else enjoy it.
I also have a whole original MB front half body leftover from my restoration. The pieces are very solid and have a few little patches on them (inside). Both fenders have surface pitting that can be filled in, and I already filled in the hood. The hood is slightly warped down on the driver side and the grille has a slight bend on the end. On the fenders, the reinforcements aren’t rusted out like most others. As a whole, all these pieces are solid on the usual rotted out places and in great condition. I’d like to get $400 out of them, or would do some trading for an MB canvas top!”
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org (please include phone number in email).
The body is interesting. It looks to me to be a late 70s/80s(?) repro tub, perhaps one of the earlier attempts of MD Juan to make a MB/GPW body? The body has M-38, CJ, and MB elements. Probably not too many of these around.
“Jeep Willys 1948 4×4 Very Nice for a project. Originally I wanted to work with this,but I have no time to build it. See pictures front and back axle are intact. just to sell this parts by parts is already worth for the price. Price is $1,800.00 cash only you need to haul it. No title but I have deed of sale. Please no low ballers.”
Not too original, but runs. Of course I’m in Seattle, so I can’t check it out in person (until Thursday).
“Pretty good shape. Runs good. Tranny rebuilt about 10 years ago. Original engine. Have a lot of extra parts that I’ve collected over last 15 years available.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000.
Should go quickly.

Thanks to Doug for spotting this one. That MB/GPW needs to be shoveled so we can get a better look at it.

Looks to be a jeep salad.
“I have for sale a authentic WWII jeep believed to be built in 1944. The title shows 1947, but I believe this was when it was sold as surplus. The engine and transmission are out of a 1953 willys cj3b, though not original, runs and shifts fine. It currently has a hard top, but I do have another windshield for when the top is removed or replaced with a soft top. I currently have the doors off due to It’s missing the drivers side hinges.
PLEASE NOTICE the other windshield has broke, but is still in itse frame. The door’s have a broke window each. But at least its all flat glass and relatively inexpensive compared to other glass. The tires came off another jeep that was sitting so they will need replacing. Brakes need to be blead.”
I believe this is a running when parked jeep.
“1941 Willys Military with small block Chevy motor. I drove it to where it is parked and it has been sitting. Body is rust free. Originally bought as project but probably never get to it. Clear title in my name and is non-op. Price absolutely FIRM so lets not waste each others time. No trades and will not text more pics (sorry I am way too busy).”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $900.
(02/11/2015) There may be partly a MB or GPW. This has the aftermarket dash I’ve only seen on California jeeps.
