1942 MB Rochester, WA $9500


UPDATE II: Still Available

UPDATE: I mentioned that this could be brought back to original without too much expense. Brian challenged me on that claim (thank you) and determined it could roughly cost about $5800 to do so. Therefore, I shall modify my earlier claim and say that this could be returned to a more militaryish theme without too much effort or expense. 🙂

“1942 Willys Jeep

1942? Flattie Tacoma, WA $1000


It’s got rear floaters. It just might have an MB/GPW chassis. Looks to have a replacement body.

“Too many projects too little time. Include second grill, and set of fenders. I believe the owner before me started restoring and didn’t get far. From what I can tell new front and rear axles. I have signed not transferred title in hand. It’s at my business but is personally for sale. Obviously some rust but most are just light surface, to my knowledge the pan is in good shape.
There is a 4 cylinder engine under the hood – but not running.’

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $8500. Leszek.

(07/31/2016) Looks like this has some body liner on the dash/glove box? Only one pic provided.

“1941 Willys MB Jeep – Slat Grille
Asking $8500 or best reasonable offer.
This was the 1st year Jeeps were ever made. Has the one year only slat grille which is very rare.
Willys made its first 25,808 MBs Jeeps with a welded flat iron “slat” radiator grille which were produced from November 18, 1941 to March 6, 1942.
Runs & drives great! Solid Body no rust. Tires like new.
This Jeep has a Buick V6 Engine.
The Buick V6 engine tooling was sold to Kaiser-Jeep in the early 60’s and they were introduced as the “Dauntless V6″ into the Jeep CJ5, CJ6 & C101 for the 1966 model year. The 225 Buick V6 was offered as an option over 4 cylinder engines in 1966-1971 CJ5 and CJ6 Jeeps.
Great for a usable driver or is a great starter vehicle for a complete restoration!!
Has a clear AZ title.”

1944 MB Chickamauga, GA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

Pretty complete, but rusty.

“This is an as found 1944 Willys MB. This is a USMC jeep and has the undercoating and a small cut out on the hood for the air intake. This was pulled out of an old van body where it has been in storage for 50+ years. It has a ton of old paint that is coming off in chunks. The motor is stuck from carbon build up. The transmission and transfer case are free. It rolls just fine. There is some rust in the normal places. Under the hood is complete. This has four original and very nice combat wheels. The two wheels on the drivers side are not included. They are just for moving the jeep around because two of the combats have flats.

There is really not much to say that the pictures can’t show you. It is still 6 volt and has seelite headlight bulbs. The data plates were robbed off along time ago but the frame tag is intact. It has an M-series bumper and an M38A1 grab handle. This is sold as is, where is, and comes with a bill of sale only.”

1952 M-38/MB-Clone Wichita, KS $14,000


It’s an M-38 that has a few MB items on it. The seller believes the windshield to be an MB windshield, but it appears to be an early CJ-2A windshield.

“I am selling my Willys M38 Jeep that was finished as a MB clone. This 1952 military jeep was built for the Korean war and is a true military jeep, but this one has the MB grille/bucket lights and older style windshield added.

Many new parts. The Willys runs and drives well and is parade ready. No oil leaks to speak of. Maybe one or two drips at the most. I drive this jeep every other day to the store and everybody honks and waves. This is a great jeep for you to have fun with the kids and grandkids as it has all the safety upgrades, such as blinkers, tail lights, seat belts, head lights, black out lights, and horn.
This jeep starts every time winter or summer. 4×4 works as it should. Not perfect, but ready to drive and have fun with. It cruises about 40 mph. The speedometer reads about 8 mph too fast so you’ll think you’re driving 48 mph! Clean Kansas Title.

“Selling my 1945 MB Military Willys Jeep. This is an Authentic 1945 U.S. Army 4 cylinder, WIllys MB Jeep with 24,000 original miles. This MB Jeep runs and drive great.

This MB Jeep was converted to a 12 volt system years ago, and is still that way today. If you wanted to convert it back to a 6 volt system, I have the regulator, you will just need the starter, and light bulbs. This Jeep still retains it’s original 6 volt generator.

This rare beauty is a true piece of Americana history, and it would be difficult to find one this nice for under $20,000.

“I don’t know much about these Jeeps. I recently acquired this Military vintage Jeep from the previous owner who obviously put a lot of effort in restoring this vehicle both mechanically and body. A few after market refinements were put in place including: electric fuel pump, alternator, turn signals, back-up lights, gauges, exhaust. Looks like the entire drive train has been gone through. It starts and drives great, 4WD works, brakes well, solid steering, good clutch etc. Looks to have a full floating rear axle, front locking hubs, wheels and tires in great shape.
