1943? MB? Denton, NC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was No Price.

The body might be MB, given the gas tank. No full floaters in the back. Probably a mix of parts.

1945 MB Gilbert, AZ $5000


Seller also has an early VEC CJ-2A for sale.

This is a rare World War Two military jeep Willys MB. It runs and drives but for dependable driving will need more attention. The Jeep came from Page Arizona and was registered with an Arizona ID with oversight of 1951 as the year, quite common mistake made at DMV in old days.. It is 100% genuine MB Jeep from pre-1945. The body is solid without any bondo and needs to be gone through before going to the paint shop. What you see in the pics is surface rust being exposed to the weather in Page Arizona where it came from. Chassis and undercarriage are solid with just the typical rust in the channels. Inner Windshield frame has rust but outer frame is solid. Great candidate for show quality restoration . The previous owner overhauled the original flat head MB “devil” engine and installed rebuilt tranny and transfer case done by a professional vintage jeep part supplier here in Phoenix. Carter Carburetor still needs fine tuning and electrical harness replaced. Vehicle runs and drives but needs restoration to be reliable driver or showing in parades. I can send you multiple photos and answer any questions you may have if seriously interested in owning a piece of war memorabilia that will only appreciate with time .

I also have a very early production 1946 CJ2A VEJ. Might sell together to any serious buyer.”

1943 MB Fairfield, CA $5000


It’s been sitting for an unknown period, but seller indicates he had it running at one point.

“I have a 1943 Willy’s mb. It belonged to my uncle for many years. He has gone through most of it over the years. I took it over and got it running again and now it just sits. I have other jeeps that get the attention so it’s time to let someone else enjoy this little jewel. I currently have no paperwork on the jeep but it has been out of the system for over 20 years. Would require a inspection at the dmv. Jeep runs and drives good just needs minor attention. Top not included”

1941? MB Youngstown, OH No Price


“Meticulously and authentically restored” 1941 MB? With all due respect to Mr. Weinberg, it’s nicely rebuilt, but this has authenticity shortcomings (the grille, the dash, the wheels, and the gas tank for starters).




“Seller’s Description: 1941 WILLYS MB MILITARY JEEP for sale. Motorcar Classics is proud to present this spectacular 1941 Willys MB Jeep. This genuine WWII Jeep, which saw service in the European Theater, was meticulously and authentically restored by Max Weinberg to honor the military service of his wife, Beckys, father, uncle, and cousin, whose names and service records within the United States Army Signal Corps are inscribed on the right side of the vehicle.

Mr. Weinberg personally researched the history of the Jeep with the Department of defense and its history is documented. The markings, numbers, and military insignias are true to its original configuration. We have never seen a military Jeep restored to such a high standard.
