1945 MB Peachtree City, GA $4500


It’s a project. Includes a detailed description.



“1945 Willys MB Jeep, Military Restoration Project
Well folks….there’s no sugar coating this one….its a late model 1945 Willys MB! This Jeep was produced just a few weeks prior to the end of the war contract of the Willys MB military Jeep in 1945 (Data tag dated 8/8/45). The last military MB rolled off the assembly line in early September of ’45. (I also have the original data plate and the i.d. tag is still in place on the left front frame horn).
The floors will need to be replaced as they are rusted through in several areas. I do have the original grill and hood (in excellent primered condition, the right (NOS)and left front fenders, and numerous other parts that are not pictured.

I have the heavier replacement front bumper along with the rear cross member if needed. The numbers matching engine ran when this first came home (this has been sitting in my garage for the past 7 years), however, it has a very slight crack in the water-jacket from someone who did not properly winterize it.

Year? MB? Inland Empire, CA $7200


There appears to be more MB here than just the tub.

“This Willys is a true survivor. The id number is a MB number, but is considered a 1947 by the DMV. The tub is a MB. The jeep was modified for a film to look like a M38. The driver side has been smoothed over with bondo at some point, but the ribs for the tools can be seen on the inside.
The window is post war as well as the M38 grille. The jeep will need to be seen.
It needs tlc for sure but is a driver.
I have the window rubber, just no glass.
The engine is what I can best figure is a 1953 F-Head Hurricane engine. It has the generator, but is wound to a 12v system.
It has Model A tail lights with the bezels painted green since the pics were taken.
The tires are new as of July 22nd. I also had Willys hand painted on the rear tailgate, as well as a personal tribute to a fallen family member, as well as a WWII Kilroy was here.
I am also having the rims painted green this week.
I am fixing it up as I keep driving it. If it doesn’t sell for my price, I will be fixing it up and keeping it.
The footlocker doesn’t go with the jeep. ”
