1942 MB Riverhead, NY $14,500

• CATEGORIES: MB

Has some floor patches, but looks like a solid parade jeep.

https://longisland.craigslist.org/cto/d/riverhead-1942-willys-mb-military-jeep/6820601489.html

“This is a 1942 Willys MB Jeep. This Jeep has been converted to a 12 Volt electrical system from the original 6 Volt system. It is an older restoration – please see the pictures for details. In the past it has had some body work done and floor repairs were done with sheet metal. The wiring in this Jeep needs some work and it could us a canvas makeover.

Since this is an older restoration most of the parts on this vehicle are original on this vehicle like the wheels and rifle rack.

This MB is in good driving condition – Perfect for someone starting in the military vehicle hobby or wanting a nice parade vehicle. Comes with all accessories pictured. The pedestal is a homemade pedestal with original .50 Cal’ Cradle.”

1941 MB Morton Grove, IL $24,999

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: The seller of this jeep suggested to at least one potential buyer that for more pics and a description, the potential buyer could download a book from Shutterfly for $70. While this may or may not be a scam, I feel such a suggestion is inappropriate. Moreover, the seller refuses to be contacted by phone (text only), even though the seller contacted me by email.

“Restored to 90% specification using original parts and other high quality reproductions. THIS IS NOT THE 1945 WILLY’S MB! The 1941 model is exceedingly rare and differs from the 1945 Jeep in more than 30 ways.

Some of the notable differences that are found on this Willy’s are: rubber steering wheel, brass framed instruments, pumpkin air filter, distinct fuel tank and filler, seat upholstery, and gears; heavy drive shaft, rectangular gearbox cover, glass fuel filter, single-piece rims, and more that are detailed in a book included with the purchase.

The vehicle is exceptionally unique and has a clean title. I accept only serious offers. TXT only, please.”

1943 GPW/MB Butte, MT $1000

UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/19/2019) Seems like there is value here.

https://butte.craigslist.org/cto/d/butte-1943-wwii-army-jeep/6816246815.html

“Real deal WWII army jeep, looks like it was used as a highway dept vehicle after it went surplus. Ford GPW body on a Willy’s MB frame. Basically straight tub but needs a gas tank well. Missing the right front fender. No running gear. Frame is good except for a crack that will need further welding but holds for now – see pic. These are easy rigs to restore and a blast to drive when you’re done, and they take up no space to store. Or, start with this and build whatever 4×4 you want! Clear title.”

1948? CJ-2A? Orland, CA $1800

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/14/2018) This might have a rare set of Thor Auto-matic hubs. Frame frame appears to be an MB/GPW frame. The body has a custom inlet and a glove box (though not a standard shape); my best guess is that it’s a replacement body or a customized body of some vintage. Title is from Thailand??
