1941? MB Missoula, MT $5500


Body has been modified on the sides. That’s one scary steering setup!


“75th anniversary of D Day is eleven months away. This 1941 Willys MB will help you celebrate it. Slat grill, triage lites , willys script on body, full floating axle rear, proper motor, trans , transfer case all proto type. Changed in Mar. 42. This is early one. Has mount for machine gun… Starts runs goes . Has way high ratios in axles. 4:88 instead of 5:38. Long legged on street. High low range works. You wouldn’t believe how well it runs. Needs lots of fun work done to bring it back to military specs. Every part I looked for was available on web.”

1944 MB Green Bay, WI $3150


Has some mods.


“Although this Jeep looks like a civilian model because of the grille, don’t be fooled. The Jeep is an mb/GPW it has an mb/gpw frame, body, suspension, axles, and steering mechanics. These Jeeps go for up to 25k restored and if you don’t believe me do your research. I’m selling the Jeep because I’m working on 3B project. The Jeep: – Runs – Drives – hi/lo works – 2wd/4wd works – Plow function properly – Has a heater – New brake lines – Needs body work, but solid still”

1943? Flattie Inland Empire, CA $10,000


Looks like a solid jeep with some updates, but it’s not “a well-preserved example of a CJ-2A”. IT may have a military body.


“This is an excellent, well preserved example of a cj2a Willys Jeep. Original Go Devil flathead engine, 3speed t-90 with overdrive! Odometer reads just a few ticks past 20,000 miles. I have three sets of tires for it, and price is negotiable depending on which tires are sold with it. It has a soft top, and doors. I also have a roll bar for it. It comes with a bumper pull hitch so you can flat tow it behind your truck or rv. This jeep is the real deal. It does exactly what it was built to do. I’m about 90% sure the engine has never been taken apart. 12 volt battery.”

No pics provided.


“I have a 1943 Willy’s jeep flat fender. This has a chevy conversion, I has a 327. The only reason I am selling this is I don’t have time to work on it. It does come with a tow bar and heavy duty winch on the front. When we picked this up it was a ranch jeep and had carpet in it. We took the seats and carpet out. I was going to redo the center console metal work. I have two sets of seats that will come with the jeep and I am also have the back seat that was in it. I can put this on my trailer and deliver if needed for a fee depending on distance.”

Tim’s selling this large lot of parts with a jeep.


“1943 Willys MB Jeep. Rough shape but can be saved. Transferable registration. I believe the motor was rebuilt but cannot guarantee that so you should consider as needing restoration. Along with the Jeep is a lifetime collection of Jeep parts. Fully assembled motor out of a generator. 6 other blocks including a GPW. Cranks, lights, seats, hoods, jerry cans, electric parts, carbs, unchecked tires, grilles, radiators, new seat covers, intake and exhaust manifolds, wheels, windshields, etc…look closely at the pictures. There may be something special in here. I do not know Jeeps that well. Most stuff appears good. Some stuff is not. First $6200 cash takes it all. Bring strong friends and a big trailer. Will not separate”

A few curious things about the body. I suspect this MB body is sitting on a CJ-3A or later frame and drivetrain. Note the boxes in the rear for the shocks have been removed and the front of the frame lacks gussets.

“1941 Willys MB military Jeep. With hard top and doors. Has a Ford straight 6 overhead valve turns over by hand running condition unknown. Manual transmission, twin stick transfer case. Body is in rough condition has sheet metal floor pan and original floor is rusted out. Lots of good restoration parts. The body is probably too far gone to be restored but would make a great rock crawler mud Bogger or Farmtruck. Sorry but due to scams I don’t open email.”
