1943 MB? Woodstock, GA $8500


It runs. The seller doesn’t know much about it, but understands it isn’t original.

“My apologies I am not an expert on what I am selling! This is a 1943 Willys Jeep with some modifications. A family member recently passed away and this Willys Jeep was his project. The jeep runs great and is a lot of fun to drive. As you can see from the pictures there are non-original items like the steering wheel assembly and the diamond plating. I have the title. It’s been garage kept. I can’t tell you much more than that. I will be happy to answer any questions you have (if you tell me how to find it on the jeep) and/or take more pics, whatever information you need.”

1944 MB/CJ-2A Alma, MI $2500


It doesn’t run at the moment. Has a VEC 2A body.

“1944 Jeep Willys CJ2A/MB/GPW
I have owned this jeep for 8 years and it has been a great project. Tub/Body is an early example CJ2a with tool indents. I got this jeep in to running condition and fixed it up to be a Parade and around town runner. Engine is a L134 “Go Devil” 4cyl with 3 speed T-90 floor shifter. The Jeep is mostly complete, but not a show piece. It has unfortunately sat for the last 4 years not getting used.  Although it did run when parked it will need to be gone through again to get it into running condition.

It comes with some rarer jeep parts including some stamped F(ford) parts, 3 solid disk(non- slotted) rims, and the early CJ2A tub with tool indents.

This Jeep will also have a clear Titled in my name for a 1944 Ford GPW, I licensed and insured the jeep as such, in the time that I’ve owned it. The Jeep has the accompanying data plate matching the title. I ran the appropriate serial number searches, with the state when I bought it, verifying no outstanding history. Getting this Jeep licensed and insured will not be an issue.

It has been a fun toy, that always grabs attention, but it’s time to move it on to someone who can invest time into it. ”

1944 MB Roseville, CA $4500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $4500.

It’s a project with a Sears hardtop.

“Letting go of my ’44 MB. Awesome rolling project with a unique piece raily to never seen. This one has a hard top! It is an aftermarket hard top sold by Sears in the early 50’s and is prett rare as I have never seen another one on an MB. Has Buick V6 with cast iron block, great reliable engine. I have a few boxes of other spare parts to add in, seat pads, stick shift boots, brake cylindars, etc. Needs an altenator and a new front passenger side axle. Both easily findable after market parts.

Has been garaged since I got it from my uncle a few years back. It was in working condition when he parked it about 20 years ago and sat outside under a covered roof during that time, so pretty well preserved with very little rust issues. Other than someone stealing the altenator off of it, it is all there.”

1943 MB/GPW Greeneville, TN $1600


UPDATE: Price dropped to $1600.

(08/30/2016) A little different.

“For Sale is a 1943 Willy’s Jeep with a 1945 engine. I cut the back and floors out as they were rotted (still have) and replaced with black walnut finished with 5 coats of poly. Frame and body are good, but left any holes and wrinkles in body. Removed all rust by sanding and wire brush. Replaced all wheel cylinders, break shoes and master cylinder and one front flex line. All seals are good, no oil leaks and engine runs great, no ticking or any other noises. Fuel tank welded and plastic lines, gage does not work. New emergency break lever and cable, new head light bulbs and LED tail lights. Leather seats with driver’s side having power. New electric fuel pump (still has mechanical one on engine). All new wiring to lights. Rebuilt carb and new air filter and fuel filter. The only thing wrong with this is it pops out of second speed and I am told it is a worn syncro gear in tranny. 4 wheel drive high and low work great. Must sell as I am moving to FL for health reasons.”

1942 MB/CJ-2A Boise, ID **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1450

(08/23/2016) 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. ”
