Wow … just wow!


“WWII Willys MB.
This vehicle is fairly complete but not running. 134Lhead motor, T84 transmission and transfer case. The body has been modified with a hard top and other unique additions. Over all this is a great vehicle for parts etc. Good running gear, front rear and original GI Ross stearing box. The parts are worth alot so $1500 takes it. I’m looking for the title but if not found I can do a notarized bill of sale.”

Year? M-38? inland Empire, CA $1800


Listed as a 1943, it has rear floaters, but also has an MB/GPW body. The grille tilts, but the hinges are reversed. I suspect it’s an M-38 body on a WWII chassis.

1943? Flattie Menifee, CA $9000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(07/17/2018) The body looks to be a DJ-3A body. I don’t see anything that suggest this was a 1943 MB/GPW.


“I have a 1943 Willys for sale. It is in excellent condition. It has 20,200 miles on it! I have a second set of black Willys wheels with military tires for it as well. Paint is a year old. I have the doors for it. It has the original drivetrain.(Go devil flathead engine, t90 transmission with Warn overdrive!). I have a tow bar for it, so it can be pulled behind a truck or r.v. This is the 18th and most favorite Jeep I’ve owned. I don’t have to sell, but I’m moving in a couple of weeks, so the cash would be helpful in the coming months. This jeep will not disappoint you!

Year? MB Iron Mountain, MI $750


Price is best offer.


“Possibly 1944, just a guess, looks to be a later composite body and has the torque reaction spring on the front drivers side. Has CJ2A grill, windshield, and engine. Everything else is WW2 military, Willys MB. Hood has actual blue drab numbers on it under 50 layers of paint. Trans, t-case, axles, frame, all look to be original Willys MB. Body is very rough, frame it patched, rusted, and weak. This sat outside for at least 20 years, it will not run or drive, engine is free and i have gotten it to fire but looks to have a bad head gasket or worse, i would consider it not to be a rebuilder, but lots of good parts. Will roll. Price is OBO.”

1943 MB Tucson, AZ $2800


Looks like a project.


“I have a 1943 Willy’s jeep flat fender. This has a chevy conversion, I has a 327. The only reason I am selling this is I don’t have time to work on it. It does come with a tow bar and heavy duty winch on the front. When we picked this up it was a ranch jeep and had carpet in it. We took the seats and carpet out. I was going to redo the center console metal work. I have two sets of seats that will come with the jeep and I am also have the back seat that was in it. I can put this on my trailer and deliver if needed for a fee depending on distance.”

1943 MB Brush Prairie, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $995.

If I had a place for this, this would be mine.




“Partially completed restoration project. Was going to be a fathers/sons project, but the sons eventually became more interested in girls, got married and moved out. Over $1400 worth of new parts and lots of old parts. All jeep parts in the pics are included. The tub is a little rough and will need quite a bit of work. When I purchased the jeep it came with both motors. The 134 go devil was sold as an extra and I was told was in good working condition, but I have never tried to start either. As such, we have never attempted to get it running. Was going to wait for that step in the restoration process before working on the engines. The parts painted Army Green (original paint color) have either been professionally sandblasted or wire-wheeled and primed and painted. Also included is the engine stand. Must take all; not parting out. Have title. The 20 ton shop press is in excellent condition and is available for $50.00 extra. Thanks for looking.”
