This one has some interesting history.

1942 MB/CJ-2A Boise, ID $1450

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

The chassis is from a CJ-2A.

“I have a 1942 Willy MB project. I do not have the time or space to complete this the way I would like it. I have all the components, hood, grille, fenders, tub, frame, wheels/tires, seat, fuel tank, steering shaft and wheel, axels, motor and transmission. The frame is from a 1947 CJ-2 I was modifying it to be like the 1942 frame. This is where I have run into trouble the frame is setup for the T-90 transmission not the T-84 I want to have on it. I also have another motor. It is title and registered. Engine does run. Everything is apart right now waiting for the right person to complete. ”

1942 MB Limerick, ME **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500.

Needs restoration. Engine is out.

“I’ve owned this jeep since 1990 when I ‘rebuilt’ it. It is very original with matching body and frame serial numbers. I’ve also posted this for sale on the g503 website. It is NOT a ‘backyard junker’ for someone to hack up for a ‘rock-crawler’, or ‘jeep rod’. I have all replacement panels and was going to restore it, but family responsibilities and other jeep projects demand my attention. This jeep is an excellent candidate for someone to rebuild as a ‘motorpool’ project or factory restoration.

This was registered for 20 years until 2011 when I pulled the incorrect Kaiser Supersonic flathead to put in my plow jeep. I have a correct WWII MB block and Willys 440 engine for parts that I was going to rebuild for it.

Frame is solid, no rust as is most of the body. Front floors were replaced ‘eons’ ago before I got it. All canvas and tires in great shape. Only repro parts are top bows and hardware; choke/throttle cables; dash panel lights; and rear seat frame. Front tires mounted on combat rims with 3 other original combat rims included.

No title as Maine does NOT title older vehicles. I do have an official ‘certification of ownership’ I recently obtained from the state of Maine DMV.

Serious inquires only. I have been involved rebuilding and restoring jeeps for 35 years and know what I have. Twice in the past month I worked with two ‘buyers’ who both backed out at the last min. One was local, the other from Europe. Because of being burned, I will store, if needed, for 2 weeks from date of sale with a non-refundable cash deposit of $500.

I have over 150 photos to share if interested. Email for requests.”

Katey’s is selling their beloved and trust trail-modified MB. It’s listed on the title as a 1942, but the serial number stamped into the dash plates of MB 383180 puts it as a 1944. However, the plate is obviously aftermarket. I’ve suggested she check for the serial number on the frame and body gusset. Contact her at katey@pioneermillwork.com if interested.

“1942 MB with original engine and drive train that has been used as a trail jeep. It is perfect as is or could be converted back to original MB if desired. It does have the matching numbers . As you can see all of the original plates are still on the dash. The body does have a couple spots of rust but not through . I do still have the original back seat that is in good condition we took it out when we put the on board air.

We mostly did 4 wheel drive runs in the jeep or Sunday drives it was by far the most fun vehicle we owned . We only towed by trailer if we took it long distance. I think it only has like 13,000.00 miles on it. We have made a few modifications to it. I have everything listed below that I am aware of.

Modifications made
Roll Bar
Spring over suspension
On board air
Tilt wheel.
Air Brakes
Warn winch”
