1943 MB Phoenix, AZ $9200

• CATEGORIES: MB

It seems like a good restoration candidate.

“Breakdown:
– Runs and drives on original engine and transmission.
– Mostly Original Parts
– Comes with a ton of history and documentation on the vehicle.
– Perfect starting point for a partial restoration with relatively minimal work.
– Majority of issues are cosmetic (From my understanding)
– It’s an old classic car and needs an owner who loves the jeep heritage and wants to return this vehicle to its original glory.

I am open to best offer and some negotiation. I am unable to deliver the vehicle, it would need to be picked up. I inherited this vehicle from my grandfather and it has been in many small parades. I unfortunately do not have the time to spend on the vehicle and don’t want it to waste away when it could be with someone who will have the time to work on it.”

“WW2 military jeep. Never sectioned or wrecked. Very minor / easily repairable rust on side panel seams (see in pics). Needs hood repaired and original style windshield. Engine is the F head from a latter willys. Original hood will fit without the hole.

We purchased it in Barstow Ca. from the original purchaser in 1997. He used it on his farm and had purchased it from Fort Irwin in 1966.

Fuel system was gone through last year. All other systems are up to date and ready to drive. That is except the brake master seems to be low on fluid. Other than that, she runs and drive great.

Just don’t need or drive it enough to justify keeping it. Besides. My new shoulder doesn’t like either steering it or working on vehicles anymore.”

“50’s military Jeep converted to a plow rig and grader. Has power up and down grader blade on rear of Jeep. Plow on front , hydraulic up and down. No turn pistons on at the moment but the lines are there to install. Plowed twice with Jeep. It’s a beast. Took in trade. The guy I traded with said he noticed a clicking noise in front end. Removed cover and said one tooth missing from ring gear. I haven’t been into it to see what is going on. I plowed with it in 4×4 and it was fine. Needs 4 glow plugs installed which I have. It’s a diesel. Motor is a 4 cylinder Ford Has a roll cage. Cool rig for a camp or farm. Well built. Firm on price. Thanks for looking. Runs excellent. Has small fuel leak on very top of injector pump. O-ring on top shaft. Easy fix for someone who is mechanical. I have a plow truck. Just don’t need this. Come check it out.4 new tires. Will consider a trade for a decent quad with plow”

“December 1944 delivery date willys MB. Fires up quick and easy, runs and drives great. All original body, frame, axles, engine, trans and transfer case. Data plates on glove box original and match frame tag.

There are some reproduction parts on this jeep like the black out light, carry handles, wheels, top bows, new a upholstery. Partial restoration done as accurate as possible for exterior looks.

Wiring has some issues PO hooked in a electric pump and it starts by dash button instead of floor button now, not sure if charging system is working. I would consider a new harness later and getting the missing air cleaner and fuel filter to make it more original.

There is absolutely no bondo or body work done and you can tell by being able to see the factory seam welds and little imperfections. There is some rust in floor boards that goes into the hat channels beneath. Common issue and better to have that than bad a repair job. Not willing to ship to another country or state.”

“One of a kind. 1945 Jeep. 6 inch lift. On 35s. Full arb air lockers in each axle. On board air compressor and air tank for tires also. Custom roll cage. CD player. Has soft top and doors all in good condition. I’ve owned this for over 10 years. My boys are beginning to out grow it. So thinking I may sell this. Or trade it. It runs great. Plenty of power. 4 speed manual. Dual transfer case. Warn winch. Everything works except the speedo but I just go with flow of traffic. Not sure how to put a price on such a rare unique piece of American history. Plated and documented it’s been in Pearl Harbor. World war 2. So I’m taking offers. I paid 8k for this and have put in a few grand over the years for suspension and tires are new. Mileage is unknown”

Looks good, but does have some issues as Craig notes. It does not have the original body.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/173421741146605

“Listing my fully restored 1943 Willys MB. Purchased back in 2014 and performed a 100% restoration. Original running gear, but does have a new body on it. I’ve only driven 1100 since the restoration. Everything is 100% correct for the vehicle, I can give the interested party a complete run down on what has been done and an idea of the money invested into it. I do not need to sell it, but for the right price I will let it go to a new home. It’s currently in storage for the winter in a heated garage but is fully accessible should someone want to come purchase it. Please message me with your contact information and I will call and or text a reply. I will not be accepting off the cuff offers, and I’m not currently looking for any trades. In response to recent messages, this not a $10000 vehicle, I have over $27k invested and that is what I’m looking to get for it.”
