Needs a little work, but might be worth a look.

1945 Willys MB Jeep. This is the type of Jeep used in World War II. It has a new reproduction steel body and Frame, rebuilt engine, transmission, and rear axle. It has new reproduction tires. It needs the lights hooked up and general detail work. We have well over $10,000 invested in it.
This Jeep has the original 4 cylinder flat head engine it’s only about 50 HP so this isn’t a Hot Rod.”

1941? MB? Tucson, AZ $1950


Listed as a 1941 MB, this seems to be a mix of parts. I don’t see any rear hubs.The body’s been ‘fixed’. No motor.

1941 Willys Jeep. Very early production “Willys” stamped MB. Probably not suited for restoration, but would make neat driver and four-wheeler. Had small block Chevy V-8, (now missing), and still has mounts, transmission adapter, radiator, dual exhaust, bellhousing, and more, all mounted in place. Would accept Chev V-6 as well. Also has T-90 transmission, 11 inch brakes, late model steering, and 12 volt electrics. Drivers windshield cracked. This is a non-running project perfect for someone who can get hold of a small block Chevy engine. $1950.”
