1943 MB Thousand Oaks, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $10,500.

(08/21/2019) Unclear to me where the auxiliary tank is located.





“GPW L-134 Go-Devil engine, converted to 12 volt, auxiliary fuel tank with its own gauge and floor mounted valve to switch between tanks on the fly, original style upholstery is in excellent condition, extra set of civilian wheels (no tires), spare tire with carrier (not mounted), jerry can carrier (not mounted), starts easily and runs great, a nearly original, unrestored example of a WWll jeep in very good condition considering its age (76!). Extensive mechanical repairs completed in March 1996 then the Jeep was stored and only used intermittently, accumulating approximately 675 miles since then.”

“Selling my 1943 Willys MB. The windshield is from a CJ3A. The hood is off a M38. The rest of the body is the MB. It’s sitting on 36×12.5×15 tires. I put in the TPI 350 from an ’89 Iroc, mated that to a TH350 which has the adapter to the Dana 18. I just rebuild (3 weeks ago) the Dana 18 with all new gears and bearings. I believe the axles are from a CJ5. The rear axle has a Powr-lok in it and I welded the front axle. I believe the gears are 3.73 (haven’t actually checked) because it hits highway speed pretty easy. It has the disc brake conversion in the front and 11′ Drums in the rear. I put in Dual manual Wilwood High volume master cylinders for the brakes with their brake pedal.

“THIS IS A PROJECT-1944 Willy’s for sale or trade. This is a project. It has a 2.3 carbed ford 4 cylinder but I pulled a 2.3 turbo(185hp) fuel injected version out of a running car and have it on an engine stand, all chassis and engine wires/computers with it. It’s twin sticked with 5.38 gears, T-90 3 speed manual. Have a couple extra turbos and just about all the parts to complete this. Have had it in storage the last 4 years and would love to trade it for something I will get to use. I like dirt bikes( 250 , 2 stroke), trucks, enclosed trailers, welders (prefer portable), boomsticks, and CASH.”

1944 MB Kennewick, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $13,500.

I like the ‘field mod’ addition of the drink holder on the dash.

“Restored 3 yrs ago, all sheetmetal original other than repair panels and grill, have original grill as a wall hanger but is very usable, post war engine block with gpw internals professionally rebuilt, original T84 that is finicky and have to double clutch to shift down from 3rd to 2nd, all other running gear original and rebuilt, very nice old Jeep that gets tons of comments,”

Year? MB Fort Worth, TX $9500


Titled as a 1951, it appears to be an MB.


1951-cj3a-fw-tex1 1951-cj3a-fw-tex2 1951-cj3a-fw-tex3 1951-cj3a-fw-tex4

“Here I am putting my 1951 Willys Jeep up for sale. This was a military jeep body style around 1945 but was tilted as 1951 as that is when the government sold it to the public. I have owned the Jeep for about 7 years. It had a new paint job 5 years ago and has been garage kept at my business since. Only taken out a few time by my employees. I need it to go to someone who will use it and enjoy it.

The things that I have done since ownership are – New Paint job, New Water Pump, Rebuilt Transmission, New Clutch, New Interior Rhino Line, New Air Shocks in rear with built in compressor, new electric fuel pump(bypassed the original fuel pump, this thing fires up right away with out stomping on the gas pedal 5 times before turning the engine).
Besides the items listed I don’t know any other history. Its a 70 year old classic, not in Perfect shape but is very nice and definitely turns heads. Has a tow hitch that hooks up to the front bumper to go with it.
I will consider cash, cash + Trade and or a trade(if I really like it)”

1942 MB Riverhead, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,000.

(02/20/2019) Has some floor patches, but looks like a solid parade jeep.

“This is a 1942 Willys MB Jeep. This Jeep has been converted to a 12 Volt electrical system from the original 6 Volt system. It is an older restoration – please see the pictures for details. In the past it has had some body work done and floor repairs were done with sheet metal. The wiring in this Jeep needs some work and it could us a canvas makeover.

Since this is an older restoration most of the parts on this vehicle are original on this vehicle like the wheels and rifle rack.

This MB is in good driving condition – Perfect for someone starting in the military vehicle hobby or wanting a nice parade vehicle. Comes with all accessories pictured. The pedestal is a homemade pedestal with original .50 Cal’ Cradle.”

1942 MB Dayton, WA $1000


DOD 1/14/42. Plates are in pretty good shape, but they are installed on a glove box door. MB 111050 with DOD of 1/13/42 is a non-glove box slat grille. It’s therefore very possible the plates on the jeep below were originally on a different jeep (or body). Includes a Bobcat hood.

Seller believes this is a 1945 VEC CJ-2A, but it looks more like a GPW (tool lids) with a CJ grille to me. If the serial number is accurate, it may be a 1943 GPW.

Year? MB Irvine, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2750. Now listed here.

This highly modified MB has been floating around Facebook a few days. Listed as a 1941, it appears to be an MB of some vintage. Someone invested quite a bit of time with the mods, especially the door and top system. The fenders and bumper look to me like parts form a Philippine Jeepney.
