1943 MB Pemberville, OH **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $8000.

Starts and runs, but needs brake work.

“This is a barn find. It’s from an estate and been covered up in storage for several decades. It’s a 1943 Willys MB in pretty much original condition. It starts good, runs good and drives good with no smoke but it does need brake work . Transmission and transfer case both shift good and don’t slip out of gear. Good frame, it does need a little floor work but the rest of the body is really solid. I had to clean the fuel system and replace the fuel pump and spark plugs. Other than that and seat belts it seems to be all original. The stock wiring is in pretty good shape, the headlights and taillight work, starter works. Good oil pressure. The manual wipers are good, the engine starting crank is still stored in it’s original position. It comes with five combat rims and Goodyear NDT military tread tires all in good usable condition with no air leaks. This has never been titled and comes with a bill of sale only.”

MB Crawler Lufkin, TX $15,000


If you need your MB with a few more mods, this might be for you.



“Custom built Willys MB rockcrawler. The motor is from a 2000 VW Beetle, it’s the 1.9 ALH TDI diesel motor and it’s mated to a Jeep T176 4 speed transmission. Transfer case is a twin sticked Dana 300, with 4:1, doubled to an NP231. Rear axle is a Ford 9″ with ARB airlocker and 4.10 gears, front is a Ford Dana 44 with an ARB air locker and 4.10 gears. The chassis is custom built, the suspension is true double triangulated 4 link both front and rear. Fox air shocks at all 4 corners, 10″ travel in the front and 14″ travel in the rear. Steering is PSC full hydraulic, column is adjustable and the steering wheel is removable. The seats are also from the 2000 Beetle and are leather and heated with full 5 point racing harnesses. There are two fuel cells to prevent any air getting into the fuel system and starving the motor. Tires are 36″ Super Swamper TSLs. The pedals and master cylinders are all Wilwood. The roll cage is 1.75″ DOM and is mounted to the frame for safety and strength. I did utilize the VW gauge cluster and all gauges work. This rig has performed perfectly I’m just getting out of the sport to pursue other interests. Feel free to email me with any questions.”

Seller has other flatties in the yard.


“Here is a Willys survivor, this is a 1942 Willys MB. The jeep is in average condition for a 70 plus year old vehicle.

1943? Flattie Inland Empire, CA $10,000


Looks like a solid jeep with some updates, but it’s not “a well-preserved example of a CJ-2A”. IT may have a military body.


“This is an excellent, well preserved example of a cj2a Willys Jeep. Original Go Devil flathead engine, 3speed t-90 with overdrive! Odometer reads just a few ticks past 20,000 miles. I have three sets of tires for it, and price is negotiable depending on which tires are sold with it. It has a soft top, and doors. I also have a roll bar for it. It comes with a bumper pull hitch so you can flat tow it behind your truck or rv. This jeep is the real deal. It does exactly what it was built to do. I’m about 90% sure the engine has never been taken apart. 12 volt battery.”

1943 MB? Tucson, AZ $2800


No pics provided.


“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.”
