“The Willys Slat Grille jeep was produced only for several years 1941,1942 at the very beginning of WWII. There are many distinguishing differences between the Slat Grill and the MB which followed in production, the main one being the different looking “Slat Grill”, and the letters “WILLYS” stamped in the tailgate on the left side under the gas tank. There are many other differences which separate this early model and the MB which followed. Very few of the Slat grills have survived to today.

This jeep is one of a large collection of early Willys jeeps which was put into storage 50 years ago.
it was running and drivable when stored, however it has not been started for many years.

This jeep is unrestored and completely original. It has its original body which is solid with no rust or dents. It has the original 6 volt electrical system, 4 cylinder (4-134 L head) engine, 3 speed trans, and 4×4 high-low transfer case. It has it’s original sand tan paint and combat wheels. There’s only 19709 miles on the odometer. This one was delivered 1/20/1942.”

CJ-2A/MB Project Lowville, NY $1850

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

Jacob spotted this project for sale. Looks like there’s some value here.

https://watertown.craigslist.org/cto/d/martinsburg-willys-cj2a-jeep/7202131797.html

“1948 Willys CJ2A Jeep that I have been working on for some time to use as a camp jeep. Prior to my purchase the previous owner had completely disassembled it and then cleaned and painted the frame, transmission, transfer case, and the front & rear ends (inside and out). He also replaced the brakes and brake lines.

I mounted a WW2 military body onto the frame which is very solid and has a new floor. The engine is supposed to run and spins freely but I haven’t tried to get it running yet. It was converted to 12volt for easier starting and has an alternator, new gauges and new battery. I have just run out of time to finish it and need the space in my garage for winter. Included with the jeep are a tailgate, windshield frame, steering column, driver and passenger seat, new steering bellcrank repair kit, clutch and brake pedals and other misc. items. It will need a gas tank and muffler, windshield glass and no doubt some other items to finish it up.”

1942 MB? Eureka, MT $6500

• CATEGORIES: MB

No pics provided.

https://kalispell.craigslist.org/pts/d/fortine-1942-mb1a-willys-jeep/7200599228.html

“A farmer purchased it from the Fort Irwin Army Logistics Base just outside Barstow California in 1966. We got it from him in 1996. It has been under a roof ever since.
The farmer put a Willys F head engine in it along with larger drum brakes. The hood was cut for the carburetor. Carburetor has been replaced so hood will clear when corrected. He also swapped out the windshield to a latter / taller version. An electric Ramsey winch was also installed by the farmer.

Very little rust in easy to get at area. Runs and drives nicely.
It is still available if you see this add. I won’t negotiate without you seeing it.”

“1942 Willys MB slat grill project, early model with no glove box, has postwar engine (turns) , t84 transmission that shifts freely. Frame Looks to be pretty good minus the usual gussets and rear crossmember. Body tub is rough but repairable using new floor pans and a rear panel. Front clip is restorable. Slat grill is pretty nice. Came from Georgia so no title as they didn’t title older vehicles. Has four excellent combat wheels that can or can’t be included depending on deal. I’m looking to trade for a restorable m151a2 jeep , lots of work needed is ok but need a restorable candidate . May also consider a complete m274 mule but mainly looking for m151a2”

Peter’s got this MB for sale.

“Original, rebuilt Willys MB 1945 in very good condition, drives very well. New electric harness wire is 6 volt. New upholstery, including Summer top, five new tires, new muffler. Complete original WWII BC 620 radio. The history of this car is unknown, but most probably it was prepared for invasion in Europe or Africa: Jerry can is made in America in 1945 but has a European neck (this unique Jerry can’s photo was in the LIVE magazine illustrating the invasion of American troops in Normandy). Also, one combat rim is wider than the standard by 1 inch. It could have been a prototype adapted to ride on the sands in WW2.”
