1942 MB Montrose, CA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: What I thought was a custom parking brake on the dash is actually a gun mount (Thanks Andy).

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.

“A mountain of a man sat to my left, a cheerful grin spread across his face and both of his ‘bear paws’ gripped the steering wheel as we drove though a misty beach town. Bundled up from head to toe and wrapped in 1000 blankets, my siblings and I loved this special time with our Grandpa.

1944 MB Traverse City, MI $34,900

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

This surrey-like mb is painted pink as a tribute to the builder’s wife’s victory over breast cancer. Though labeled a 1942, it’s actually a 1944.

1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi1 1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi2 1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi3 1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi4

“Many of us know the history and some more than others, however this vehicle is special as it was built by a husband for his wife after she battled breast cancer and won. He had a highly detailed restoration on this Jeep completed. One thing to note is that it says “1942 Willys” on the side of the hood, however it is actually a 1944. This was a slight mistake done at time of restoration.

This particular Willys is in fantastic condition both physically and mechanically. This Jeep has been driven and it starts, shifts, brakes and goes down the road as you would imagine with all the lights in working order as well. This would be a great piece to add to your collection of eclectic autos, use in parades or do a repaint back to original as there would be no metal work to complete. This is a turn key Willys that is looking for a new home.”

1943? Slat Grille MB Logan, UT $8500

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

This looks to be a no-glove box body, so it might be an early slat grille MB. If so this won’t last long at this price. It may have a civvy engine (at least the head). If might also be a reconditioned jeep, as there is a small data plate on the dash.

“1943 Army Jeep very good condition for its age. Original early 1940s Willy’s Jeep. Mechanically it is very solid. Engine, transmission, transfer case, and high/low range, wheel hubs all work as they are supposed to.
