1943 MB & Many Parts Windsor, NY $6200


Tim’s selling this large lot of parts with a jeep.


“1943 Willys MB Jeep. Rough shape but can be saved. Transferable registration. I believe the motor was rebuilt but cannot guarantee that so you should consider as needing restoration. Along with the Jeep is a lifetime collection of Jeep parts. Fully assembled motor out of a generator. 6 other blocks including a GPW. Cranks, lights, seats, hoods, jerry cans, electric parts, carbs, unchecked tires, grilles, radiators, new seat covers, intake and exhaust manifolds, wheels, windshields, etc…look closely at the pictures. There may be something special in here. I do not know Jeeps that well. Most stuff appears good. Some stuff is not. First $6200 cash takes it all. Bring strong friends and a big trailer. Will not separate”

1945 MB Morrisville, NC $8000


UPDATE: Still Available.

A few curious things about the body. I suspect this MB body is sitting on a CJ-3A or later frame and drivetrain. Note the boxes in the rear for the shocks have been removed and the front of the frame lacks gussets.

“1941 Willys MB military Jeep. With hard top and doors. Has a Ford straight 6 overhead valve turns over by hand running condition unknown. Manual transmission, twin stick transfer case. Body is in rough condition has sheet metal floor pan and original floor is rusted out. Lots of good restoration parts.

1942 MB Oxnard, CA $13,500


Somewhat modified MB that appears well-loved. The window flares on the wise of the windshield are a unique addition. I could see those being handy.





“Location: Oxnard, California, 93033
Transmission: Manual
Condition: Excellent

Seller’s Description:
Offered here is a very sharp 1942 Willys Jeep which is quite a find. With a prior restoration, the vehicle shows very well. Power comes by a rebuilt 4-cylinder engine matched to a rebuilt transmission and transfer case. Set-up as a tow vehicle including a built-in tow light system, it would look great behind a motor coach as a grocery-getter and cruiser or expressly for 4-wheel touring.

1944 MB Guilford, NY $4700


This may be a good price, too.


“This jeep has been in my family since the early 80’s, and has always been kept inside. It runs, drives, and stops. I do not have the vin plate. However I do have the registration in my name for the jeep.

It comes with a set of axles, radiator, gas tank, steering box and column, and many more misc parts.
I have posted plenty of pics, so if you want it, come look at it and make an offer in person.

I will not answer endless emails, nor do I want to hear a story about your jeep. Too many people commit, and then the day of or the day before email with an excuse not to come by. Serious buyers only please.”

Year? MB? Luxemburg, MI $3500


I thought this looked like an MB, but Dexter see more GPW in that mount. It also has a plow.


“Although this Jeep looks like a civilian model because of the grille, don’t be fooled. The Jeep is an mb/GPW it has an mb/gpw frame, body, suspension, axles, and steering mechanics. These Jeeps go for up to 25k restored and if you don’t believe me do your research. I’m selling the Jeep because I’m working on 3B project.
The Jeep:
– Runs
– Drives
– hi/lo works
– 2wd/4wd works
– Plow function properly
– Has a heater
– New brake lines
– Needs body work, but solid still
Willing to deliver.”

Navy SeaBees in Viet Nam thus the Navy lettering. The photos in this post are photos of photos so they are not the best. Questions and contact can best be made directly to him with the phone number provided in this post. Neither he or I do the text thing. It is located near Payette Idaho and is being sold as is where is with no guarantees but you can start it up and drive it home if you wish. I have the same vehicle and it trailers like there is nothing behind you due to the low weight.”
