“Today I put my Willys MB project up for sale. It is a project but has quite a few sought after pieces if you are into rock crawling. I’ve had this since 2018 with the hopes of creating an off-road vehicle I could rock crawl, but still be street-able. As you can see, that hasn’t happened yet and while I’d love to get to it someday in the near future, I wanted to give someone else a shot at fixing this thing up right. I’d like to sell this as a complete project but for the right price, anything can be bought.

“1943 Willys-Overland MB (Jeep) 1/4 Ton 2dr Truck 4×4 4-cyl. 134.2cid/60hp 3-speed manual My Dad’s first boss (a mechanic- owner of a garage) loaned him this vehicle when he was 16 years old (1947). His Boss then continued for 59 years to used the Jeep mainly at a family cabin with acreage. When he passed away, he gave it back to our Dad who was in the VCC and enjoyed vehicles.

Restoration started in 2008. Original body, engine and 6 volt were restored. Jeep was painted green and canvas top and seats were redone. There are a set of old wheels-tires that were on it when we got it but we drive the jeep with different tires. It has been garaged since we have owned it. We do not know how many actual miles are on the jeep but gauge reads 34959. The back tire cover with 1943 ad was added. A mechanic has recently checked engine and brakes and it is ready for it’s new home. Whatever your “General Purpose”, this GP will make it Memorable and Fun!”
