1944 MB Gardnerville, NV $1600

• CATEGORIES: MB

It’s a project.

“1944 Willys MB WII Jeep project. My brother and I bought this to restore, but we found a different jeep later on which we want to concentrate on instead, and he has since moved to Hawaii. Frame tag has a serial number of MB 324912, which puts it in the 1944 year. Willys MB left toe board gusset has a number of 46344. Willys MB tub toolbox features round style lock depressions and plain style lid. Appears that somewhere a later style “Willys” script hood and windshield frame was added? Spare dash and cowl included to replace cutout dash. Engine is not original to jeep, running condition unknown, newer looking carb. Tub and frame are really solid, but tub has a fair amount of filler, so I assume it needs to be have the metal worked out to be nice. Have not done anything to this jeep since we bought it, just trying to recoup some of our money. Priced right.”

“This WWII jeep is in AWESOME Shape. NO RUST on frame or body or anywhere else. Purchased this last fall out of Denver. Engine was rebuilt literally a week ago. 2wd and 4wd high/low all work great. Just installed new correct wiring harness. All gauges and lights work including the blackout lights. Has clean MN title in hand. This jeep is going to be an awesome vehicle for someone to enjoy and pass on for generations and use for parades or to drive everyday if you want. It was always my dream to have one of these and I wish I could keep it but unfortunately I can’t. Happy to show it and take you for a ride weather permitting.

Here are some of the improvements I’ve made:
Rebuilt engine
Replaced speedometer cable
Filled all fluids
Replaced thermostat
Replaced thermostat housing gasket
Drained and filled transfer case 150 Miles
Filled transmission with gear oil Continue reading

1944 MB Vancouver, BC $20,000

• CATEGORIES: MB

This has a 350 stowed inside. Seller wants Canadian cash, so I suspect the jeep is in Canada.

“This is a WW2 jeep. I restored it to almost original condition. The frame has the gun mount on it. The brakes are drum brakes that work good. The body was ruff when I got it. It was sand blasted and new metal installed. I got the seats and a lot of the gear from a willys war jeep dealer from the US. The tires are what would be on the jeep of that year. The wheels are combat wheels that split apart with eight bolts. The paint took 4 months to get as I wanted the original paint. The white marking on the jeep were painted on using stencils. The bottom of the tub is under coated. New body mounts of that time were used. Here are the things that are not of 1944. It has a 350 Chevy in it and a 3 speed tranny. All tucked away so you cannot tell. The electrical has been updated. This is a real eye catcher and drives nice. ”

1942 MB Canton, OH $8000

• CATEGORIES: MB

Nick shared this one. The glove box lid looks swapped and the tool box lids are missing. Hasn’t been started in a while.

“You are looking at a RARE 1942 Willeys Script Jeep!! It has been garaged or in a barn since purchase in 1946. Owned only by two owners and has title. It has been painted red by the son when he was in high school so it has the army green underneath the red. As you can see from the pictures it doesn’t have much rust for the age in the pictures the spots that don’t have red is the army green underneath and has all the parts except it needs new canvas for the top. It is the early 1942 Willeys because it has the Willeys stamped on the back of it and the military asked them to stop stamping in the end of 1942. It hasn’t been started for 25 years.”
