“1942 WWII Military Willys MB Jeep. Mostly original and has been stored inside for many years. It runs, drives, brakes, and most everything works on it. I just drove it on the road last weekend. It has most of the original parts still with it (from what I can tell). Engine, driveline, and chassis are all original also. Converted to 12 volt and all lights work. Straight sheet metal and very little rust. Also comes with a couple of fabric doors and 2 Danbury Mint die-cast models. Clean title. $12,500 OBO.”

This is an estate sale. Looks like it was well-loved.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3519161151731103/

“This is titled as a 1944 Willy’s Jeep that presents well as a WW2 era Jeep and runs and drives as it should. The body is a reproduction and there are reproduction and later Willys era parts but it is still a very correct looking, rust free example and is in amazing condition and ready to enjoy. It has had a very long term elderly owner, kept in temperature controlled storage and being sold to settle an estate. Also included are WW2 accessories including helmets, a 2 way radio, gas mask and more. This Jeep is about as nice as you will find. More photos are available upon request. $18,500 buys it. If listed, the Jeep is still available. Located in Waukesha, Wisconsin.”

Blaine shared this auction. It’s hit $24,000 with 16 hours to go as of this Thursday night post.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1944-willys-mb-2/

“This 1944 Willys MB is finished in drab green with white military-style accents over green canvas upholstery and is powered by a 134ci inline-four paired with a three-speed manual gearbox and a dual-range transfer case. Equipment includes 16″ body-color wheels, a folding windshield, a jerry can, manually locking front hubs, and a radio receiver and transmitter unit linked with a body-mounted antenna. The truck reportedly underwent a refurbishment under previous ownership, and the seller acquired it in 2021. This Willys MB is now offered with a clean California title in the seller’s name.”

“44 Jeep. Former military m38 but more similar to a cj2a. Runs and drives. Lots of work done to it. Newer “F-head” engine previously only in cj3b and cj5 (i fit it in without a hood scoop with a low profile carb and air cleaner). T90 rebuild and swap, Dana 18 rebuild, new brakes all the way around, new carb, new body mounts, new radiator, new batter, new fuel pump, tank relocated to back (as opposed to factory under drivers seat), new clutch, new plugs, wires, distributor, new wiring harness, lights, twin stick t case, gauges, u joints, new windshield (windshield frame is a cj3a frame) and new paint……. Cons: the paint is textured “monstaliner” bedliner like paint (not UV sensitive). Looks pretty good but was used to hide the less than perfect dents and dings under the paint. Underneath looks better than most Jeeps these years. And it needs a top. I also wouldn’t recommend it for someone over 6’ (I’m 6’3” which is the main reason I’m selling it.)”

John spotted this MB with unusual ‘skins’ across the grille and fenders. Given it has been parked since the 1980s, unclear what value is here. I believe it needs floor pans (my interpretation of “4 pains”). Only one pic provided.

“I’m guessing 1942 Jeep, that’s what I was told by the folks that know in Arizona. The title says 1951, If that is an issue for you please do not contact me and complain, I don’t want to hear it. The engine runs, see video, I replaced the entire wheel brake system. Something is broken in the transmission. Front and rear differentials will most likely need to be overhauled. It has four brand new wheels and tires. Brand new windshield glass. It also has an over drive transmission. The price is firm If you have $5,000 in United currency and want to buy this jeep contact me. I have a clean Arizona title. If you want this Jeep, Bring cash. I’ll answer reasonable questions. I’m not interested in your estimate of the Jeeps worth. Obviously it’s worth less to you because you don’t own it.”
