1944 MB Charlotte, NC $1475

• CATEGORIES: MB

It’s rough.

“1944 Willy’s MB Jeep 4×4 with the original 4cyl flat head motor and straight drive transmission. It is a complete jeep and did run and drive when we parked it just hasn’t been started in quite a few years. Military base jeep with the original flat head motor. It is not locked up and the gears shift as they should. Everything worked and was a fun jeep to drive. We have misplaced the title but it will be sold with a Bill of Sale. It use to be a batteries jeep and is a true piece of Americana. It has a roll bar and a really solid body for the year! It would be Great for someone to restore or even use as yard art if you so choose. ”

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.”
