1947? MB Truckee, CA $2700

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

Was a non-running MB in Reno, so someone was able to add value and get this jeep running. Thanks to Jay for pointing this out. Listed as a 1947 CJ-2A, this looks more like a modified MB/GPW.

“I have a 1947 Jeep Willys CJ2A for sale. It has a 283 V8 Chevy motor with edelbrock carb, stock 3 speed tranny and dana 18 transfer case. The dash is custom with stewart warner gauges. The clutch has been converted to hydraulic and steering wheel with tilt. Great running motor. The jeep is in running condition it is a little ruff around the edges but is a good jeep to run around town or drive around in the woods. New battery and air filter. It has a roll bar but is not currently installed. Asking $2700 or best offer”

MB/M-38 San Gabriel Valley, CA $6700

• CATEGORIES: M-38, MB

It’s a mix of parts.

“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.
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.”

The tires are too big, so I pulled off the rear, but the front still cause it to rumble a bit. When it sells I will be taking off the rear wheels and putting back on the big ones. You will need to put new rubber on unless you don’t mind the rumble and wobble they cause. ”

1942 GPW/MB Weslaco, TX $7,999

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7999

(07/06/2015) There are several reasons this shouldn’t sell for $20k besides the incorrect engine.

“With great sadness I am selling my 90% restored World War II Ford GPW/MB. She has been sitting in a carport for the better part of 5 years and needs to find a good home to hit the parade circuit again. The body is all original as is the two piece windshield. She has the original manufacturing plates on the passenger side, black-out lighting, all gauges, new gas tank, the original 6volt electrical system, original military type tires, and fully restored engine. A note about the engine: the engine came off a 1938 Willys Sedan Coupe! That is the only reason this parade/museum piece is not going for 20k. The restored engine has less than 500 miles on it as does the fully restored drivetrain to include the drum drivehaft brake.”
