“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!”

1943 Metamet-Modified Flattie UK £10,995

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPW (Ford MB), MB • TAGS: .

Blaine spotted this Metamet-modified jeep that was owned by the Metamet family. This doesn’t seem to match any of the models on the list of models from the Metamet brochures. The split window windshield doesn’t not appear to fold down, the doors look to be of a suicide style, and the top appears to be a soft top. It’s kind of Jeepsterish.

https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1468062

Metamet-jeep-uk

“This is actually a 1943 ww2 jeep that has been converted into a 4wd roadster , lots of the original inner bodytub remain, Its running and driving but will need renovating , chassis is superb condition , there are lots of options with this jeep, leave as is, change it a bit or revert it back to a ww2 jeep again, Its the only one made by the Metamet company back in the late 1950s, TAX and MOT exempt, UK registered, this unique ww2 jeep conversion, been stored unused for 40 years, this conversion done by the well known metamet jeep conversion company in the 1950s/ 60s, this model never ended up going into production and this is the only one made despite it being shown in the sales brochure, I have fitted original jeep wheels and personally think it looks better and gives it back a bit of its former DNA but the original wider road wheels and tyres go with it

It was kept by a member of the Metamet family as his private vehicle until he recently passed away , this willys mb jeep was built in 1943 and served in the war , the dvla mot history records show that it left the military service and was registered for road use in 1958, sometime after this date the conversion was done , Its been stored unused for the last 40 years , engine is now running , I have a whatsap of the jeep driving, it will need recommissioning brakes refurbishing, fuel line checking through but the chassis is excellent , exhaust all good, radiator holds water and it starts and drives , the engine is smooth, includes extra fitments like free wheeling hubs, radio, clock, folding front bench seat , sports car type fold down hood, hinged doors, drop down boot, this is the only one of its kind in the world and should really be in a collection or museum , most of the original bodytub remains , It could easily be re bodied back to its former ww2 jeep bodywork with a new reproduction body tub , large leather bound file containing many photos and drawings of the build has since been found and I’m hoping to collect that soon”
