“1941 Willy’s “Slat Grill”.
DOD December 4th 1941.
Older restoration that was hardly ever driven. Only 875 miles since it’s restoration.
New paint is pretty much all it needed.
Runs and drives and stops very well.
All canvas in good shape.
Titled and currently on a “NON-OP” status.
We will deliver it anywhere in California and put basic markings on it with a full price offer.”
Listed as a 1947, it looks more like a MB/GPW.
“1947 willy jeep for sale… $5000 or best offer”
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. “
Looks like a clean rebuild.
“I am happy to present to you my 1942 Willy’s MB. It has been fully restored to it’s original condition. This fresh restoration includes a complete drive train rebuild by an expert Jeep restorer. The sheet metal is all new, and was purchased from Bensinger Jeep. All canvas is from Beachwood Canvas Works. There are many things I can tell you about this Jeep. Email or call Mike if you are interested or would like to know more about it. Clean title.”
UPDATE: Still Available
(It sounds like this has been disassembled. Appears to have combat wheels.
“Unsure of the year but I believe it’s a 1945 Willy’s MB. It is currently decommissioned. The plan was to start the frame off restoration but no time to even start. Tub is rusty. Hood is decent. Any takers? The picture was taken BEFORE we decommissioned the Willys.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $5000

“RUNS WELL AND LOOKS GOOD..IT IS A DRIVER”
Myself, my boys, Ann and her mother spent a few days at Desolation Pass for the last two days. Turns out, connectivity was horrible. So, that explains the lack of updates. Nice to get away from the wired world for a while. Substantive updates will begin thursday, but I’ll get a few in for Wednesday as well.
Now, for this unique ad. James forwarded this gem of an ad. Looks like there are military and civilian jeeps for sale here.
“I recently purchased an estate of Willy’s CJ Jeeps and Parts, and I think I am ready to see if anyone needs parts or project vehicles. Mostly vintage with many early Willy’s CJ2A’s in complete condition and various stages. I have tubs also, some even bead blasted and ready to go. Looks like a fair amount of CJ5 and possibly early CJ7 as well. Look at the photos, that will give you an idea, most of the vehicles with wheels have complete drive trains. There are many loose front ends, rear ends, transmissions, and engine parts, as well as body parts. If you have a project needs help, or looking for a new one, give me a call, 303-507-0045.”

“1943 Willies Jeep. $3000 or best offer. Willing to deal.”

“1942 Jeep willys.
This is a super solid project, almost ready.
V8 corvette engine, was running, needs battery.
Good, clean interior.

UPDATE: Craig pointed out that it’s possible the MB frame on this the correct frame. Ford used the same frame supplier, Midland Steel, before they contracted with Murray Steel for the GPW frames. (http://olive-drab.com/od_mvg_www_jeeps_mbgpw.php)

“I have decided to get out of the old Jeep hobby and sell all of my remaining vehicles and parts. I will attempt to sell everything to one buyer first and if no singe buyer emerges I will list everything separate.
1946 Willys Jeep CJ-2A,
L-134 flathead 4 cylinder with less than 2000 miles on rebuild, Solex carb, Petronix ignition and 12 volt conversion. T90/18 trans and transfer case, Dana 44 rear. Body was taken off frame and repaired with pop riveted sheet metal. Floor boards and hat channels were replaced along with tool compartment floor.

Paint is rattle can and looks like it, but the body is very solid.
New gauges except fuel, no fuel gauge in vehicle. Tail lights are new and headlights and marker lights work. No turn signals, horn, or wipers. No top.

UPDATE: Still Available.
(07/02/2014) Oh this crazy thing is great! It’s got some floating rear hubs, so very well could have a 1944 chassis.

Has an F-Head motor.

This appears to have a MB/GPW tub and running gear. It’s also got the custom angled dash found mostly in California.
“I have a 47 jeep that I got a while a go I like to sell or trade the jeep is been sitting for a few years but it’s got tons of potential seems to be the military type I’m not sure it’s got a V8 chevy engine on it that turns freely however I don’t know if it will run.
