1945 MB Riddle, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4500

(05/31/2010) This is still a project.

“1945 Willys MB for sale. It has a rebuilt motor that runs great, it only has about 15 miles on the new motor. It has all new wiring and it was converted to 12 volt. It has to many new things to list so give me a call and take it for a test drive. I started to restore the jeep but I did not know how much money it would suck up. The jeep is fun to drive but it is not completely original but it could be put back to original if someone had the time and money. I would trade for a nice running 90s toyota mr2 or nissan 300zx or a 3000gt,but it would not hurt to offer any thing all I could say is no”

1944 MB Spokane, Wa $400

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

Dan spotted this one.  It doesn’t look too bad.

“This is a 44 Willys MB and is in rough condition. The tub’s straight but rusty, there’s no pass. seat, radiator, or windshield, but there’s still lots of good parts. (axels,trans & T-case, steering box, ect.) The engine’s a non stock F-head and is missing some parts. The frame’s been welded up alot in the front but is decent from the firewall back. You can see it at 312 S. Dishman Rd. (corrner of Dishman & Appleway) or give me a call (ask for Dave) at 509-928-4460…cell 509-991-4573. There is no title.”

1942 MB Pendleton, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500

(05/11/2010) If we had a better pic, I *think* we’d see the upper tool indent visible but the lower one not visible.  However, even if that was the case, it appears that though the gas cap is visible, the inlet appears tilted, suggesting it is an aftermarket install. The dashboard suggests it is a MB body (with the glove box).  The floor board of the rear is just visible and is flat as expected, rather than having undulations like the CJ-2A.  The grille is mb, the passenger fender is mb and the hood is mb.   However this does have a CJ-2A windshield.   So, this appears to be less stock than I originally thought.

“1942 Willy’s Jeep. Runs good, no rust, super hurricane 6 cylinder engine, new tires. Street legal.”

1942 MB Rapid City, SD **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000

(04/07/2010) This MB has been a little customized.

“Willys Jeep has a mustang 6 cylinder and body is in good condition but needs paint job… Fixed up its worth anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 depending on if its just a four wheel drive or military style. This is a real Willys and was a military Jeep, has holes for the gun in the middle and places for all the military equipment… the real clue is there is no gate that drops down in the rear… its flat. Note that is has a lot of surface rust from not being painted and paint worn in spots but all the metal is very solid on it. All vehicles sold as is, cash only.”

Shore Patrol Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, GPW (Ford MB), MB • TAGS: .

I was quite surprised yesterday, as I noted in my post related to the Waikiki VJ Day Video, that I spotted a mustard yellow MB with the words “SHORE PATROL” emblazoned across the windshield frame.  Also interesting is the top on this jeep.  See how it appears to go up before it heads back.  I’m wondering if that’s a hard top of some kind?

That lead me on a trek to find any other shore patrol jeep with a color scheme that was NOT a light blue color.  A quick google search of the term “Shore Patrol Jeeps” reveals an endless slew of light blue Jeeps evoking, in my mind, a Navy theme. However, despite my searches, I couldn’t locate anything other than Navy themed or Army Green Shore Patrol Jeeps.

So, to the upper right is the best snapshot I could get of the Waikiki Shore Patrol Jeep, followed by some other Shore Patrols I found around the web.

Here’s the closest example I found to the yellow one. This one has the unusual top:

From Brian’s WWII site we have this one (google says it should be at this link, but I couldn’t find it):

Here’s one from Flickr

Here’s a different angle of the same one from Fotki:

Here’s one from the CJ-3B Page — this time a complete M-38:

Here’s a ‘Shore Patrol’ jeep that’s likely a M-38 with some other parts  (unsure if this was ever a shore patrol jeep):

Here’s another ‘mutt’ of a Shore Jeep:

Here’s a nicely restored MB Shore Patrol vehicle from Argentina that I featured a while ago:

Here’s a shore patrol motor cycle from the G503 page:
