“Sitting in the barn for the past 20 years. Rolled out to get something off shelf and figured I would take pictures and list it. Needs minor work as you would expect form sitting for years (master and wheel cylinders, battery). Old vehicle with pretty much all original parts (except locking hubs, signals with dual brake lights). Price is firm and as is.
Was listed as 44, someone pointed out that it is a 43, sorry.”

“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.

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 **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9000.

(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! I will consider reasonable offers, but please don’t lowball me”

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.”
