Year? MB? Los Angeles, CA $8000


Unclear if this mostly MB/GPW or not.



“Willys Jeep
World War 2
Jeep is titled at a 1950

Was purchased from an estate after the previous owner had passed. He had a few jeeps in his collection.

I purchased this car non running with a seized motor. The Jeep now runs and idles smoothly. It is still a project that needs a lot more work but I did the difficult parts of getting it back up and running.

For the next owner you will need to take care of the brakes before any serious driving can happen. Master definitely needs to be replaced.

Car is in WEST LA. Can be shown Monday – Friday 10-6 and weekends by appointment.

Title in hand.”

“Willys MB 1943 VIN number 214545 model NOM – 12 is a real WW2 veteran. This jeep is a unique model produced in a short series of 1,512 units for the special order of Marine Corps.

1945 MB? Enterprise, OR $3000


It’s got mods and will need some work.


“After the windshield frame was smashed and the gas tank was removed this jeep was parked near a barn for 15 years. It was forgotten about and I believe deserves to be saved, so i brought it home. I chopped the wind shield down to a wind deflector and turned a beer keg from our local pub into the gas tank. After also adding a new battery, it started right up. After bleeding the breaks it also stops. Tail lights and blinkers work although the head lights are not working at this time. If I get a chance I will get them to work.

The tires are worn out but holding air. It runs well, stops ok, starts ok, but needs to be trailered. There is rust and bondo and at least 2 layers of paint over the military olive drab that is starting to show through. This jeep has the original engine with the overhead valve F head, transmission, military blackout lights, axles, spring over lift kit. Steering box, steering column, and shocks have been upgraded.”
