UPDATE: Still Available. Description has been updated. Was $400. Now no price.

(07/02/2014) Oh this crazy thing is great! It’s got some floating rear hubs, so very well could have a 1944 chassis.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2018505331808739

“Experimental? 312 engine was informed by the long retired pilot Air Force. Found locally near Hyde field near Andrews AFB .. 312 virtually identical to 292 without checking numbers on crankshaft. Complete except carb. Parts or restore – pto, Dana 44s, tow bar. One off hand built cap. Still has some military type script on inside of cap, looks like they used recycled ductwork or equiptment steel. Ford mustang type seats. .. no parts this on really needs to be researched. Haven’t been able to locate a VIN. Confusion as to all that have studied it. No parts sell as whole unit. Bill of Sale. Great conversation piece, yard art or rare historical piece. Pretty solid except for some floor pan and rocker repair.

1944 MB Doylestown, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Steve’s selling this project. His preference is to sell it to someone who will restore it (rather than part it out). Has some EasyLok hubs.

“Here is a 1944 Willys or maybe a Ford GPW army Jeep. It does have a GPW engine that had the head removed to do a head gasket job that was never finished. The engine does turn over by hand but I have never heard it run. Jeep is still on my trailer as I just bought it for a project and another project just showed up that I can butcher up rather then destroy this one. I left a few spaces to add a couple more pictures as I know their will be lots of questions with this one. The glove box door is gone but the frame rail still retains the vin number. The Jeep does roll very well! I have set of New Old Stock front 10 leaf springs and a drivers side foot rest for the bottom of the fender to go with the Jeep. If it doesn’t sell I will put it into the barn and do something with it at a later date.”

1943 MB Rhode Island No Price

• CATEGORIES: MB

It’s a project.

https://providence.craigslist.org/cto/d/1943-willies-army-jeep/6500695946.html

“I have a 43 willy’s army jeep, started as a project, rebuilt the engine, never ran it but no reason why it shouldn’t. I have two transmissions. Replaced all the brakes and had all the drums cut. Painted the frame with POR15 (I hate rust) and then she sat for years, body has rust and needs some work but frame is beautiful.

Bottom line I don’t have to sell it so low ball offers won’t be accepted. But make me an offer. Might consider trading for a 14 or 16 ft boat with engine and trailer.”

JUST A FEW UPDATES TODAY!

Thanks to Alaska Paul for spotting this one. Mack Auction will be auctioning off cars belonging to the Gervais Family Farm Wheels Museum on August 4-5. There are a bunch (100 or more) of pre-1960 vehicles, along with one WWII jeep that’s been stretched in the back. Most of the cars appear to need some work.
