Year? CJ-3A/MB Palm Desert, CA $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $6500.

(01/20/2020) This appears to be a 1950 CJ-3A with an MB/GPW body on it. It also has some Husky/Allstate hubs and what I think is a Con-Ferr rear bumper.

“1942 Willys MB Jeep Clean WA title! No engine or trans just a roller. I have soft doors and bikini top for it too. None of the sins you see are mine, so if you have comments, keep me laughing. This one sat on the backburner too long and is ready for a new home. You could do almost anything with it, maybe your Mahindra Roxor would be more fun with a new front clip and licence plates? Cheap trail rig? LS swap? Slammed with an SR20det? Crazy 70’s street freak gasser? Anything, well except keep the cage, it’s terrifying. Cash talks, I will respond to folks in order.”

1945 MB Connecticut $3500

• CATEGORIES: MB

Matt’s selling this MB. He can be reached via call or text at 860 304 3639.

“Selling one of my projects I won’t have time to get to anytime soon. Up for sale is a late war Willys MB. I believe it is a 1945. All of the data tags are gone so there is no serial number or DOD. There is an ACM number on the tub and it can clearly be read. The frame, axles, steering components and certain body parts are in good shape but the sheet metal is very rough. One of the front frame horns will also need to be replaced.

Lots of rust in the body as you can see in the pictures. There is a later CJ2A engine in it but no transmission or transfer case. There are still a-lot of good hard to find parts on it. This is a good start to a restoration as the chassis is very solid and usable or as a parts vehicle to complete another Jeep with a better body and drivetrain. I do have some parts and pieces that can be purchased separately to make it more complete. Located in Connecticut. Asking $3500 obo.”

1942 Holden-Designed GPW Redding, CA $1552

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE II: The header has been corrected. It’s actually a GPW. I’ve also added some additional pics:

UPDATE: It appears this may be a USMC-modified based on the Holden design, rather than an actual Holden. This may explain why Frank isn’t seeing details he’s expecting to see (see comments)? 

A person I trust has checked this out and confirms it’s a USMC Holden. But, it’s rough, too.

The serial number is listed as #GPA8424, which is strange given it does not look like a GPA nor a GPW. However, the dash plate indicates the serial number is 198360, which puts it as a very late 1942 MB.
