1943 MB Phoenix, AZ $9200

It seems like a good restoration candidate.

“Breakdown:
– Runs and drives on original engine and transmission.
– Mostly Original Parts
– Comes with a ton of history and documentation on the vehicle.
– Perfect starting point for a partial restoration with relatively minimal work.
– Majority of issues are cosmetic (From my understanding)
– It’s an old classic car and needs an owner who loves the jeep heritage and wants to return this vehicle to its original glory.

I am open to best offer and some negotiation. I am unable to deliver the vehicle, it would need to be picked up. I inherited this vehicle from my grandfather and it has been in many small parades. I unfortunately do not have the time to spend on the vehicle and don’t want it to waste away when it could be with someone who will have the time to work on it.”

“WW2 military jeep. Never sectioned or wrecked. Very minor / easily repairable rust on side panel seams (see in pics). Needs hood repaired and original style windshield. Engine is the F head from a latter willys. Original hood will fit without the hole.

We purchased it in Barstow Ca. from the original purchaser in 1997. He used it on his farm and had purchased it from Fort Irwin in 1966.

Fuel system was gone through last year. All other systems are up to date and ready to drive. That is except the brake master seems to be low on fluid. Other than that, she runs and drive great.

Just don’t need or drive it enough to justify keeping it. Besides. My new shoulder doesn’t like either steering it or working on vehicles anymore.”

“50’s military Jeep converted to a plow rig and grader. Has power up and down grader blade on rear of Jeep. Plow on front , hydraulic up and down. No turn pistons on at the moment but the lines are there to install. Plowed twice with Jeep. It’s a beast. Took in trade. The guy I traded with said he noticed a clicking noise in front end. Removed cover and said one tooth missing from ring gear. I haven’t been into it to see what is going on. I plowed with it in 4×4 and it was fine. Needs 4 glow plugs installed which I have. It’s a diesel. Motor is a 4 cylinder Ford Has a roll cage. Cool rig for a camp or farm. Well built. Firm on price. Thanks for looking. Runs excellent. Has small fuel leak on very top of injector pump. O-ring on top shaft. Easy fix for someone who is mechanical. I have a plow truck. Just don’t need this. Come check it out.4 new tires. Will consider a trade for a decent quad with plow”
