Year? MB Irvine, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2750. Now listed here.

This highly modified MB has been floating around Facebook a few days. Listed as a 1941, it appears to be an MB of some vintage. Someone invested quite a bit of time with the mods, especially the door and top system. The fenders and bumper look to me like parts form a Philippine Jeepney.

“Selling a rare 41 Willy’s coupe been in storage years ! Solid orig engine n drive train not Running suicide doors 4X4 great project to restore ! Missing seats”

“This Jeep was most likely crated after it was made and not sent to Europe or the Pacific Campaign. Most Jeeps that went overseas never came home. Jeeps are popular in Japan, China, and Europe – even today.

What I know about this Jeep MB.

Bought from Camp Roberts, CA in the 1940s – between 1948 and 1950 – Army Surplus.
That owner had it until 1954 when he sold it to my friend Bill.

“I have a 1945 Willy’s jeep. It is good shape for being 74 years old. It still has the flat head in it and cranks right up. The person I got it from said the winch worked but I have not messed with it. 4wd drive works and the low and high range. It does leak some oil in places. It’s a fun and nice jeep. Every time I ride it around people talk to me about it. I am going to move soon which forces the sale otherwise I would keep it. It has been converted to 12volt.”

Seller needs this gone soon. It’s a mash of parts.

“1945 WWII acm type II tub with a 1946/7 CJ motor and T-90 transmission, original MB tag still present on frame. Machine gun pedestal mount present, definitely a WWII frame/tub.

Original data plates are missing. Previous owner added a tailgate, roll bar and a CJ-5 hard top. Used a winch in the front to haul deer through the back without busting a sweat.

Tool boxes flat and nice, not rusted out. Original floors present but have a sheet nicely laid over. It was done so well you can’t tell.

Original air cleaner, I believe carburetor and other parts.

If you’re looking for a gauranteed runner for a start to a project or a reenactor grade Jeep this won’t take much. Has Bondo on left side, some on hood and also on the back. For most it’s clean metal underneath. Tool channel patched with riveted stainless steel, that and tailgate are the worst spots.

Runs and drives great! Starts with the turn of a key. Open to offers. I can also deliver to surrounding states or cities within Kansas at cost.

Has missouri title but does not match, sold on Kansas bill of sale, will include title.

Will upload video to YouTube of it running and a walk around soon. Also available on ebay, need it gone soon.”

“I have a 1942 willys MB for sale. It is mostly original with some cj2a parts swapped in. Original military frame and body. The transmission and transfercase are original military. The axles are cj2a. The engine block is a cj2a with a military head. The windshield appears to be from a CJ and the seats aren’t original. This mb would make a good restoration project and I was planning to restore it too all original, but having an infant and a new house have made this project one I can’t take on. The body and frame aren’t rusted, I can send more pictures of places like the body supports underneath that are all intact. It is running and driving, I can also send you a video of it running. It has a clean nevada title.”
