1943 MB York, PA Make Offer


I think the top is my favorite part, though it is showing its age. The seat covers are unique, too.

“Selling this for my father since he is no longer able to drive. This was purchased from the military (Letterkenny Army Depot) in the late 1940s. It has 53,000 ORIGINAL MILES. Has now been started for 3-4 years. The photos were taken about 18 months ago. The tires are all flat but as far as the rest of the jeep goes, it pretty much looks like the photos. Call for more information and a history on the jeep. Who knows FDR may have ridden in this jeep! BEST OFFER OVER $4,000. CALL 717.880.1353″

1942 MB Woodinville, WA $6700


UPDATE: Still Available

I will say the motor fits nicely. But, the resale value would have been far better, and the install price cheaper, if they’d just rebuilt a flathead.

“Restored frame off older restoration. Jeep has all the original appeal with a professional install of a Toyota 20r motor. custom fabricated motor mounts and tranny bell housing. Includes hard to find pto drive (not installed) Sold on a bill of sale already had WSP inspection done and submitted to DOL. Started off life as a farm vehicle never licensed or taken on the road.”

“Up for sale is my 1942 Willys MB Jeep. These WWII Jeeps are gaining in popularity and have become one of the “the must buy” affordable collector vehicles. I picked up this Jeep from the Northern reaches of the Bay Area where it had been parked for years due to a bad valve. Since acquiring the Jeep, I have addressed all the major issues to make this Jeep an extremely reliable cruiser. In fact, I drive it all the time to do local errands and to attend local car shows.

Work done within the last year:
- Engine valve to replace the one that had cracked
- Head gasket
- Head studs
- Original WWII head checked and restored
- Oil pump
- Distributor
- Points
- Plug wires
- Plugs
- Coil
- Cross over tube and intake hose
