Steve McQueen’s 1945 MB **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Auctions, MB

UPDATE: Steve McQueen’s jeep sold at a UK auction for $108,000! Read more here: https://www.autoclassics.com/posts/news/steve-mcqueen-jeep-auction (it sold at auction in 1984 for $6000).

Thanks to Rennie for sharing the news that Steve McQueen’s former MB will be up for auction. You can read about it at Autoblog or see the auction information here:

http://www.silverstoneauctions.com/steve-mcqueens-1945-willys-jeep-mb

1945-mb-steve-mcqueen-uk

“We are incredibly pleased to offer this Willys Jeep, delivered on 7th July 1945 (as stamped on the data plate), which was formerly part of Steve McQueen’s vast car collection. This Jeep was sold as Lot 532 at the ‘Steve McQueen Estate Auction’ on 24th – 25th November 1984 at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, to a lucky bidder, a Mr J. McClughan of New Braunfels, Texas for $6,000, some ten times the going rate for a WW2 Jeep.

It is being sold with the Bill of Sale signed by Kenneth Zifferen, Co-Trustee of the McQueen Children’s Trust, the Certificate of Authenticity from the Steve McQueen Estate Sale in Las Vegas, the original auction Catalogue from the Estate Sale, and the original advertisement flyer. Our vendor purchased this from Mr McClughan’s estate who we believe was the third owner after the US army and Steve McQueen. The original blue Californian license plates are also included in the sale and are dated for road use until 31st October 1980 indicating the Jeep was available for use right up until Steve McQueen passed away only a week later.

Since being imported to the UK, this important Willys Jeep has been renovated and fully recommissioned exactly as it would have been in McQueen’s ownership by marque specialists and leading Jeep experts, Jeeparts-UK Ltd. It is supplied with a NOVA reference number, an application for first registration has been made to the DVLA and expected that a UK V5c will be available at time of sale. Full EU and UK taxes have been paid. It will also arrive at the sale with an MoT and a dating certificate from the Military Vehicle Trust. This fabulous motorcar offers superb provenance and is an unrepeatable opportunity to acquire a significant Willys Jeep once owned and driven by the coolest man in Hollywood.”

1943 GPW Grass Valley, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8500.

The front gussets have been removed and the frame reinforced. The rear lids appear to be MB (flat), but I the angle isn’t good to get a full view of them. The engine and tranny are civilian (not *period correct*, but functional). I’m sure it would make a fine parade jeep.

“This is one of the cleanest GPW’s you will find. Clean CA title in my name. Body is mint, likely rebodied or a lucky survivor? Many of the components have yet to be drilled or mounted. The frame is all ford as evidenced by the front cross member. Engine is Willy’s flat head, trans is t90, all period correct and acceptable conversions. I have the parts shown in the photo along with new data plates, and two f script front seat frames that need some work. This vehicle drives well, turns, stops, etc… I thought I would keep it forever but found an older one I had to have. Do your research, I will not negotiate over the phone, come look and fall in love with this great piece of history.”

Adam pointed out that there are pics of this from years ago and one shows this may have four wheel steer: http://www.ewillys.com/2007/06/27/1942-gpw-4-wheel-steer-prescott-valley-az-17000/

It’s missing some gauges and lacks data plates on the glove box. Seller claims it was the first prototype for the Air Force??? Appears to have GPW lids.

1943 GPW Eustis, FL $1800

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $1800.

(06/15/2018) Seems to be a mix of MB and GPW parts.

https://orlando.craigslist.org/atq/d/1943-willys-ford-gpw-jeep/6745473755.html

“1943 Willys Ford GPW Jeep. The tub/body is a Willy the Jeep has many GPW parts. Starter and generator are GPW. The motor in the Jeep is not original. I have a ’43 GPW and wanted to use this one for parts but I will never get around to it. The body it toast but there are salvageable parts: glove box, rear compartment doors, and other parts on the exterior. The frame is also in bad shape. Wheels, tranny, differentials, and axles are good. Also comes with another Motor block and GPW head cover.

I can deliver within a reasonable distance for .50 cents a mile. It is in a car hauler and tires are flat so it will have to be pulled off at destination. It will have to be paid in full before I deliver. You can come see.”
