Year? MB Wenatchee, WA

• CATEGORIES: MB

Blaine forwarded this ad. It’s unclear if the seller still has this. Seller was cleaning property of a variety of vehicles and the ad notes it is only good for Sep. 3-5. But, you never know …

“Accepting all offers! Pickers welcome. Trying to clear my property of old vehicles (motorcycles, cars and trucks), tons of old tools, fencing (various kinds), bath tubs, scrap metal, ect. Too much stuff to list it all. Have clean titles to Subaru Legacy and Ford Bronco, no titles for rest of vehicles and ORV’s. Labor Day weekend only Sept. 3-5. If interested call for directions. Will not deliver.
Pick up and haul away. Anything and everything goes. Some items are yours for free if you can haul away.”

1945 MB? Morgan Hill, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4200.

Has a variety of updates.

“I am selling my Willys CJ2 flat fender. Its a great little jeep I drive it on a regular basis. I have maintained it well as a daily driver and a wheeling/hunting jeep. It has some good modifications to it that make it great for 4×4 and hunting. It has the Buick 231 V6 in it for a lot more power. It also has SM420 4 speed with granny low gear transmission, this transmission is a heavy duty truck transmission that can hold up to any abuse you may want to put it through. It has a 8000 lbs winch on the front. Comes with a removable tow bar for convenience. Bucket seats for more comfort when off road and around town. Black Bikini top. I installed a radio bracket and speakers up on the roll bar to keep it all out of the way of shifting and away from potential mud and debris. Tires are in great condition with plenty of tread. Unknown mileage on the motor. I replaced the spark plugs and wires a couple years ago. Fuel tank was upgraded to a larger tank and removed from under the driver seat for safety concerns.

Needs: brake adjustment, I had to cut a bigger hole in the transmission hump on the floor and I never finished building a new cover for it that fits. It could use a paint job if you want it to look nice, or it could be left as is for having fun.”

1942 Canadian MB Duncan, BC, Canada $15,000 (CDN)

• CATEGORIES: MB

Jon spotted this one. It is an MB that was part of a Canadian contract. I assume the “T-18 transmission” is a misprint?

“To many interests and not enough time or space, so it’s time to move on to a new home and an owner that would like to enjoy it as much as we have.

Own a piece of Canadian History

It is a Canadian MB which is rare. Only 5000 were produced under this Contract Number CDLV505 out of the 650,000 jeeps built during wartime production. Most of its parts are there with the exception the 6 volt electrics which were converted to 12 volt. It comes with known history.

Includes lots of literature, and spare parts such as,

T18 Transmission, Front and rear axle assemblies, 2 Gallons of the correct paint, manuals books and many small restoration parts from the Ron Fitzpatrick in Medford Oregon

Year? CJ-3A West Richland, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000.

Not sure why it is listed as a 1954. It does have a military body, so maybe it is a ’44? Has a Bobcat fiberglass hood. It includes a top, not pictures. Appears to be missing a muffler. Has full floating rears. If this is still around after we return from Billings I’ll check it out.

“1954 Willys Jeep 304 V8

1945 MB/GPW Lafayette, OR $2500

• CATEGORIES: MB

May be worth a look.

“Thinking about selling the ’45 Willys. This would be a project vehicle for someone.
It runs and drives, though I wouldn’t take it on the trails. Body has mended breaks, but it comes with a tub we picked up with the intent to restore it. We also have another frame which is rusty, but in good shape. Another motor could be included, a Hurricane 6 which was intended to be put in later. I believe there are some other pieces and parts to go with it (a bench seat I believe).”

1944 MB West Linn, OR $8000

• CATEGORIES: MB

Rob’s got his nice looking MB for sale. It’s got an engine issue.

“Reason for the low price is that the head or block is probably cracked. It’s getting water in the oil and quickly over-heating. We’re moving and don’t want to deal with repairs.

Original body. 10-yr old wiring harness, 10-yr old tires. Brakes work, e-brake doesn’t. Reproduction canvas top, seats, crash pads. 3-inch tear in top canvas on rear quarter seam. Horn is there but not wired. Needs new blackout light bulb, not wired. Ignition moved from floor to key in dash. Has after-market fuel filter added to the fuel line between pump and carb. 6 volt. Had repair/bondo work done underneath passenger-side step. Bumper has been modified from war-time specs, cut shorter and has welded brackets for a flat-tow hitch to be attached. Is licensed on a pemanent Oregon antique vehicle plate.”

1942 MB Limerick, ME **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500.

Needs restoration. Engine is out.

“I’ve owned this jeep since 1990 when I ‘rebuilt’ it. It is very original with matching body and frame serial numbers. I’ve also posted this for sale on the g503 website. It is NOT a ‘backyard junker’ for someone to hack up for a ‘rock-crawler’, or ‘jeep rod’. I have all replacement panels and was going to restore it, but family responsibilities and other jeep projects demand my attention. This jeep is an excellent candidate for someone to rebuild as a ‘motorpool’ project or factory restoration.

This was registered for 20 years until 2011 when I pulled the incorrect Kaiser Supersonic flathead to put in my plow jeep. I have a correct WWII MB block and Willys 440 engine for parts that I was going to rebuild for it.

Frame is solid, no rust as is most of the body. Front floors were replaced ‘eons’ ago before I got it. All canvas and tires in great shape. Only repro parts are top bows and hardware; choke/throttle cables; dash panel lights; and rear seat frame. Front tires mounted on combat rims with 3 other original combat rims included.

No title as Maine does NOT title older vehicles. I do have an official ‘certification of ownership’ I recently obtained from the state of Maine DMV.

Serious inquires only. I have been involved rebuilding and restoring jeeps for 35 years and know what I have. Twice in the past month I worked with two ‘buyers’ who both backed out at the last min. One was local, the other from Europe. Because of being burned, I will store, if needed, for 2 weeks from date of sale with a non-refundable cash deposit of $500.

I have over 150 photos to share if interested. Email for requests.”
