MB Slatgrille? Maquoketa, IA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** for $14,100.

Bill shared this one. The seller claims to not know what this model is, but it has a slat grille and lacks a glove box. It does not have the squared off gas tank. Currently, it’s sitting at $12,100.

“Not a Jeep expert. Found a Ford. So this one goes. Excellent runner. Well maintained. A few small oil leaks. Newly rebuild WW2 transmission. Not sure whatS original and what isn’t. So you will need to ask questions. If your looking for a good runner for re enacting or just cruising around town. This is the Jeep for you.”

1945 MB Morton Grove, IL **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $19,500.

Peter’s got this MB for sale.

“Original, rebuilt Willys MB 1945 in very good condition, drives very well. New electric harness wire is 6 volt. New upholstery, including Summer top, five new tires, new muffler. Complete original WWII BC 620 radio. The history of this car is unknown, but most probably it was prepared for invasion in Europe or Africa: Jerry can is made in America in 1945 but has a European neck (this unique Jerry can’s photo was in the LIVE magazine illustrating the invasion of American troops in Normandy). Also, one combat rim is wider than the standard by 1 inch. It could have been a prototype adapted to ride on the sands in WW2.”

1942 GPW? Athol, ID $5000


This is listed a GPW, but appears to have MB tool box lids. For some reason, this is listed in the Topeka, Kansas, Craigslist. Unclear if it is a scam (price seems pretty good) or some odd Craigslist issue. Or, maybe the seller travels (or moving) to Kansas.


“Good restore starter. Everything works excellent. Starts right up.”

“1944 restored Willy’s Army Jeep. My late WWII Veteran Father purchased this restored Jeep in 2000 from a Gentleman in Louisville KY. My Dad drove one like it in Japan during the War. He used this one for local parades.
He had a stroke in 2008, and I became his driver for the events. He just passed this April at 94. It needs to go to someone who can appreciate it and use it like my Father did. Selling to help settle his Estate.

New Tires put on 10/2017 Coker 6.00-16 Military Tires
All oils changed two years ago. We only did about two Parades a year, dependent on the weather. Last parade we did was in 2019.

Everything works at it should. Very low maintenance vehicle.

Year? GPW? Harrisburg, PA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5800.

The price seems reasonable on this mix-of-parts jeep. It has a GPW body. Given the hood bump, it might have an f-head, too.

1941 Willys “Jeep.” A true American hero. She served in WW II and was dissembled and then reassembled to serve again in the Korean War. She is titled as a 1941 but appears to have parts through the Korean War as was common for military Willys. She runs but is 79 years old. Her 4wd will take you anywhere. Please do not bid or buy if you do not intend to complete the sale. I have recently downsized my house and no longer have the space for this historical vehicle.”
