1945 MB Southwest Colorado $2500

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

I’m not sure if this has been available for sale previously or not.

“I am selling one of my projects. Very restorable WW2 jeep. The body is straight with the usual rust through in the hat channels and the fuel tank sump. The drive train is all original and complete. The frame is straight and solid, no rust throughs or breaks. The engine is a ’45 not sure if it’s the original. Email me for serial numbers. Now for the negatives. There is no title. I will provide a bill of sale. There are no seats. The one in the pictures goes to a GPW and is not included in the sale. Someone has cut the fire wall probably for a bigger engine. The jeep is not running but the engine does turn over. I can deliver to Phoenix at the Papago show on January 30th. Email me for more info and pictures. Asking $2500.”

1941? MB? Spokane, Wa $900

• CATEGORIES: MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE:  More pics available and price dropped to $900.  Are those mini hood scoops on the front?

(12/31/09) This has a solid back, so it’s possible this is a WWII jeep of some kind.  However, it’s pretty rough looking.

“v8. sitting for 30 years. 900.00 OBO. call joe 509-216-6627”

The seller will take less it sounds like.  The motor isn’t stock.

Send me an email or give me a call (805) 905-1299 if you want to know more or would like to come take a look at it. Make me an offer and it could be yours. Thanks.”

Year? MB Spokane, Wa $350

• CATEGORIES: MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

It’s certainly not a perfect body, the outside does appear to be pretty straight and rust free.

“Willys MB $350.  Not sure of the year because the tags are missing but it is definitely military because of the lack of a tailgate, storage boxes behind the rear wheelwells, ax and shovel cutouts, and the 50 cal mount on the frame (my favorite part). Tub needs a new front floor but otherwise is in great shape. Includes tub, windshield frame, hood and frame with running gear minus the engine.”

1944 MB Wenatchee, Wa $2000

• CATEGORIES: MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

It runs, drives and has a plow.  This might not be a bad price.

“Runs and drives and plow works and has a cheap winch. Body is not so hot. Has the artic frames for the canvas around the head lights. Part of the passengers side has been cut out and someone cut a hole and put a CJ type gas tank in it. Wrong windshield. But engine is military and runs as does the tranny.”

1942 MB Slat Grille Hathaway Pines, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The seller provides a very nice overview of the jeep.

“This is an extremely rare 1942 Slat Grill Jeep.  Depending on where you look, different sources indicate that between 25 and 300 of these Jeeps are known to exist today.

The number plate on this Jeep shows that it is number 113424 (the 1’s are punched as I’s-see photo).  This is the numbering for the Jeep, and does not indicate that 113,424 of these were made.  Rather, the first 25,000 Jeeps ever made were Slat Grills, and the vast majority have been destroyed.  I have had this Jeep for several years, and it has a clear California title.   There are no registration issues since it has been registered non-operational so that no back fees accumulated while I stored it.

From what I can know and can tell:
I bought the jeep with an F-head motor and replaced it with the correct L-Head motor, but the motor is an aftermarket Kaiser Motor rather than a Willys.   The motor which is in it is a Kaiser Supersonic, and since its rebuild 12 years ago, has been run for only a few hours.  Unfortunately, I no longer have the rebuild receipt but it was rebuilt professionally…..”

• CATEGORIES: MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was Make Offer

(11/19/09) The driver’s indents are gone, but the lack of a gas inlet suggests they might be filled in or replaced.  It’s got MB fenders, but I suspect the grille might be a CJ as is the windshield.

“I have a 45 willys for sale or trade. It has a 350 v8 munzi 4 speed dana 44 rear and 25 front. ”

1942 MB Baton Rouge, La eBay + Trailer

• CATEGORIES: MB, trailer • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

It looks good.

“I am selling this rig only because of seriously failing health. I bought it nearly three years ago so I could fiddle with it and drive it as a hobby. It gets a lot of attention wherever it goes.I can still drive it but can no longer work on it. The previous owner was a mid seventies retired MP who had restored three Willys MB’s. This 1942 was his third and he said it was time to let it go. I liked it so much I had it shipped in a covered trailer all the way from Ruffsdale, PA to Baton Rouge, LA. I was an MP myself in the mid 60’s so I had a lot of Jeep time in the M151 but always wanted a WWII version. It and the trailer have been garaged before and since my acquisition. The Jeep speaks for itself. It’s in really good condition. It was not cleaned up in any fashion prior to the pictures being taken. Didn’t even wash it. I didn’t “shiny” anything up under the hood to try to put a fresh look on it…..

The trailer is a rare Bantam. One source has it as a very early post war where the first two hundred were produced with a military style seamed axle, combat wheels, and were painted olive drab. This trailer fits. The Bantam letters on the data plate are block rather than Italic placing it wartime or immediate post war. It also has the heavy three position shoe and thick lunette for the military pintle hitch, chains and hooks. It’s also got blackout lights. Go figure ….”

1943 MB Elizabeth, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“Willys Jeep – 1943 MB Jeep in excellent condition.  Restored several years ago in Arizona and has been garage kept except when used for hunting, which has been minimal. Jeep has no visible holes or rust.  It’s in need of a good wash job and detail.  Used only three times in the last four years and it’s time it goes to a new home. Engine is 4 cylinder, 3 speed transmission, 4X4.  Watson, manual lock out front hubs, Viking Winch with electric remote control, new battery, brake shoes replaced by brake shop – less than 100 miles ago.  Has a tow bar, leather seats, a small bikini top, couple of gun holders, and a pair of 5 gallons gas cans and holders on the rear end, next to the spare tire. Mileage,31496, is what shows on the speedometer, don’t have a clue if iit’s accurate.

I bought the jeep from my father in law who is the one who restored the jeep 35-40 years ago. It was restored in Arizona and has only been in Colorado for the past 4 years, but is always garaged. Runs great, starts easy.  I don’t know of anything not working on the jeep.  It just sets around and isn’t getting used so it’s time for it to move on.  Transportation, will be up to the new owner.  Payment will need to be made in full prior to title exchange and transportation.”
