Year? MB Irvine, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

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.

“Selling a rare 41 Willy’s coupe been in storage years ! Solid orig engine n drive train not Running suicide doors 4X4 great project to restore ! Missing seats”

“This Jeep was most likely crated after it was made and not sent to Europe or the Pacific Campaign. Most Jeeps that went overseas never came home. Jeeps are popular in Japan, China, and Europe – even today.

What I know about this Jeep MB.

Bought from Camp Roberts, CA in the 1940s – between 1948 and 1950 – Army Surplus.
That owner had it until 1954 when he sold it to my friend Bill.

“I have a 1945 Willy’s jeep. It is good shape for being 74 years old. It still has the flat head in it and cranks right up. The person I got it from said the winch worked but I have not messed with it. 4wd drive works and the low and high range. It does leak some oil in places. It’s a fun and nice jeep. Every time I ride it around people talk to me about it. I am going to move soon which forces the sale otherwise I would keep it. It has been converted to 12volt.”
