1942 MB Lebanon, OH $8500

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

Seller would prefer to sell locally.

Hood numbers match frame serial. (I have another hood who’s number match the engine’s serial(I’m keeping that one.))
New Tub in 2008.
New wiring loom in 2008.
Gets new paint every few years.
Engine rebuilt in 2010 (hardened exhaust valves installed)
Canvas seats ~2005, still in very good condition.
Transmission rebuilt in 2004, (still pops out of 2nd if it feels crabby).
I never had the original bows and have not purchased a top or new bows.
Engine runs strong, needs a new radiator core.
Running with a solex carb but I have the original carter.
Electric fan installed on radiator to make parades while pulling a trailer a little less exciting (switch is hidden in glove box.)
Extra Paint/Parts go with the vehicle (except some original parts I have hanging on the wall in my shop.

It’s been an on and off project for long number of years, I just need the space for other projects. Anymore it comes out for parades and the odd trip to get ice cream.
I’d rather not ship.
Prefer to sell “locally” so I can meet the new family.”

1943 MB “Ike’s Jeep” Shefford, UK eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

Seller has priced this jeep at an unusually high price. This reflects the fact that the jeep was given to Eisenhower by the people of Scotland. Certainly it makes this jeep an unusual historical vehicle.

THIS WAS BY WAY OF THANKS FROM THE PEOPLE OF SCOTLAND FOR HIS HELP AND SUPPORT DURING WORLD WAR TWO.

I HAVE FULL PROVENANCE WITH THIS JEEP BY WAY OF LETTERS FROM THE GENERAL AND HIS AID AND ALSO FROM THE NATIONAL TRUST OF SCOTLAND WHO BOUGHT THE JEEP FOR HIM . I HAVE A FILE FULL OF PAPERWORK AND PHOTOS TO SUBSTANTIATE THESE FACTS.

1942 MB Slat Grille Denver, CO $5500

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

Runs and drives.

VIN# 113422
USA # 2046114 S

The first 25,808 Willys MBs used a welded steel grille very similar to the Ford GP design, and there were a host of other differences from the later Willys. These early MBs had “Willys” embossed in the back panel. In production, the slat-grilles were given running changes until they finally evolved into the standard stamped-grille MB we know and love. Around 200 slat-grilles are estimated to survive today.

I have restored 5 combat wheels with new NDT tires
-2 gallons of correct olive drab green
-complete NEW seat canvas
-stencil kit with correct USA #
-Runs and Drives great!

This jeep has been in our family and stored inside since the 50′s.
My Grandfather was a POW in WWII

I am FIRM on my price.”

1942 MB Carlsbad, CA $3500

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3500.

(07/31/2014) Not perfect, but might be refurbishable back to a pretty original look.

This is a barn find coming out of the Bakersfield area. Limited paper work. The car needs TLC and some one with auto skills. The car has been run very limited and seems to work in all areas. You will see extra parts on the car. This is not a total original car. Could also be a great parts car. New gas tank, starter on a 12 volt system, carb, fuel pump, and stuff. “
