“I have a 1944 Willys MB, World War 2 military Jeep for sale, with a clean Oregon title. It’s definitely a project, but it rolls and steers nicely. I was told it has a Dana 30 open-knuckle front axle and a centered rear diff, instead of the closed knuckle front and offset rear diff. Original engine is long gone, but I have an original T90 transmission and Dana 18 transfer case, that also has a vintage aftermarket overdrive unit on it. That all seems to shift well, but it’s not in the Jeep currently. I have an extra cowl/dash to patch in the holes someone cut in the dash. I’ve always wanted one of these specific Jeeps, but thanks to Biden’s economy, I’m gonna need to let a couple projects go. I’m asking $4,500. Cash only. No shipping, Local pick up only.”

1944 MB **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

TJ spotted this one. It was listed, with an extra engine, for only $3500 (in Prineville, Oregon). Not surprisingly, it sold quickly!

“I have a 1944 Willys MB for sale. pictures are from 2 years ago, sitting outside, It comes with an extra motor and needs work. The Brakes need to be bled. The fuel pump needs to be installed(I have a new one). The seats need to be put in. The front drive shaft needs to be installed. It’s a good starting point but it’s a great starting point. The engine ran with the other fuel pump; it just was leaking fuel from it”

GPW and MB Orcas Island, WA $7000 for both

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

These are described as MBs, but it looks like one has a GPW front cross member. They are located on Orcas Island, which requires taking the ferry. A truck plus a two-vehicle trailer will probably require a $325 ferry ticket (truck 15′ + trailer 30′), if I am reading the fare schedule correctly.

“Two 1943 Willys MB Jeeps FOR SALE
Selling two vehicles together – $7,000/Both OBO
We purchased these in 2010 from a Military Surplus outfit in the Grants Pass, Oregon area. We tinkered on them over the years, both have run and were driven in the past on our land. Not currently running. These are two separate restoration projects. I have the original paperwork from the military surplus seller including the title for the camo one; the blue one is untitled. The old license plates on the vehicles were there at the time of our purchase. We never transferred title to our name. For purchase, I will provide two Bills of Sale plus title for the camo one and statement of fact about the blue one. You can apply for title for the blue jeep and get a VIN assigned as outlined by WA State DMV for vehicle without title.
Camo painted jeep: 1943 Willys MB – title in hand. This jeep clearly spent time in Europe and likely remained in post war service in Germany. (It has some parts with labels written in Deutsch). This jeep is fully intact and mostly original. Key included. Seats all included and recovered. Spare tire mount and tire included. Bimini frame included (no canvas). Jerrycan holders included and mounted. Frame intact. Surface rust throughout, and rust through hole on the mounting steps and adjoining side panel.
Blue painted jeep: untitled, estimated to be similar vintage (same grill style) as the camo MB so early 1940s. Key included. Appears to be modified: i.e no bench seat, and gas tank is fabricated and located at the rear (where a bench seat would have been). Frame intact, surface rust throughout, no holes.

Joe-in-Mesa’s friend Keith shared pics of this Hawaii-Style looking jeep. Keith is willing to sell it, but also wants to learn more about it.

To me, it looks like something someone brought to the US Mainland from Hawaii. You can compare this to the others we have documented here: http://www.ewillys.com/tag/hawaii-body/

If you have interest in it, feel free to email me and I’ll pass along Kieth’s info: d@deilers.com.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/7590670924328006

“Needs a good home with someone with the time and knowledge to put her on the road. Everyone wants to know if it runs, it does not. It has a new radiator, new gas tank and steering linkage and steering wheel. As you can see it has a military body, so the body has to be older than ‘48 and a previous owner put a tailgate on it which it wouldn’t have. It does roll.”

“Purchased as a non-running Jeep from behind a barn in Memphis TN. Rebuilt as a project during Covid lockdown. Flat-head 60hp Go Devil engine converted to 12v, and new wiring and gauges installed throughout. Disk brakes added to the front to aid in drivability, and the front seats have been extended rearward into the rear fenders to allow a little more clearance between the steering wheel and the driver. Frame is powder coated. Axles, transmission/transfer case, and motor are all powder coated then rebuilt. Body work and painting performed off-the-frame at Fenix Automotive (https://www.fenixgarage.com/), and the full underside of the body is painted the same as the top side.”

I suspect this is an aftermarket CJ body atop a military chassis. The body has civilian aspects, but the rear cargo area has the boxes necessary to allow the vertical shocks seen on MBs and GPWs.

It has had a very long term elderly owner, kept in temperature controlled storage and being sold to settle an estate. Also included are WW2 accessories including helmets, a 2 way radio, gas mask and more. This Jeep is about as nice as you will find. More photos are available upon request. $18,500 buys it.
