1944 MB Guilford, NY $4700


This may be a good price, too.


“This jeep has been in my family since the early 80’s, and has always been kept inside. It runs, drives, and stops. I do not have the vin plate. However I do have the registration in my name for the jeep.

It comes with a set of axles, radiator, gas tank, steering box and column, and many more misc parts.
I have posted plenty of pics, so if you want it, come look at it and make an offer in person.

I will not answer endless emails, nor do I want to hear a story about your jeep. Too many people commit, and then the day of or the day before email with an excuse not to come by. Serious buyers only please.”

Year? MB? Luxemburg, MI **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

I thought this looked like an MB, but Dexter saw more GPW in that mount. It also has a plow.

“Although this Jeep looks like a civilian model because of the grille, don’t be fooled. The Jeep is an mb/GPW it has an mb/gpw frame, body, suspension, axles, and steering mechanics. These Jeeps go for up to 25k restored and if you don’t believe me do your research. I’m selling the Jeep because I’m working on 3B project.
The Jeep:
– Runs
– Drives
– hi/lo works
– 2wd/4wd works
– Plow function properly
– Has a heater
– New brake lines
– Needs body work, but solid still
Willing to deliver.”

1944? Jeep Brandywine, MD No Price

• CATEGORIES: Features, MB, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

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.


“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.
