1945 MB Concord, NC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $18,995.

Joe-in-Mesa shared this oddly accentuated MB.


“A military Jeep with all the trimmings will make anyone take notice, but really, know why you’re stopping to check this one out. It’s hard not to get excited about driving the bedrock of freedom, especially when it’s this affordable.

The military Jeep was an international superstar, and this one demonstrates that perfectly. Wearing Royal Air Force (RAF) livery, it’s a reminder that the Jeep just didn’t help America win the WWII… it was an asset to all the Allied forces. So even Britain utilized the Jeep (their Range Rover was a post-war product.) This is the great Anglo-American blend where the iconic military Jeep’s nine-slot grille and camo paint meet that RAF badge and roundel. Plus, this one has all the great accessories to make it truly look like it can go anywhere. The jerry can, rear-mounted spare, spotlight, and side mounted shovel make this a great authentic showpiece for any event or parade. Continue reading

This jeep runs and drives great. I drive it to work and back often 40 miles round trip. 4×4 works great along with the twin stick transfer case and lock out hubs.

1943? MB/DJ Mt. View, CA $3000


Listed as a 1943, it looks like it has a DJ body. Chassis might be CJ.

“I have an old Jeep that is titled as a 1943 with the L-134 engine. Converted to 12 v, I put a new voltage regulator on it and the electronics are good, Starts right up and drives. Has Overdrive added as well and it does work. Title in hand.
I was going to use it as a desert toy for my girlfriend and I but in the end it is a little too primitive for what I had in mind. Has nice full back aftermarket seats, and a nice top.Comes with Dick Cepek spoke wheels with good tires on them, at least 80% tread left on them. Runs and drives but will need tail pipe added at some point. Gas tank has been moved to the rear. Will throw in new hydraulic jack and lug wrench as well.”

1943 MB Webster, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8500.

Looks solid. Lacks combat rims. Not all the accessories are included.

“I am selling my US Army WW2 1943 dated Willys Jeep. Currently registered with historical plates, insured and inspected.
Some of the accessories shown included. What IS NOT included is the M1919 and the accessories that go with it. However the gun mount pedestal will remain since it is bolted to the vehicle. The vehicle was restored in 2008 by a west Virginia military museum from which I had purchased this from and still a 6 volt electrical system. I put in new universal joints in the front end last year but it does need an oil seal replacement. Please feel free to ask any questions, thanks.”

1943 MB Tucson, AZ $3500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/27/2017) Has a variety of mods.

“I have a 1943 Willy’s jeep flat fender. This has a chevy conversion, I don’t remember if it was a 327 or 350. The only reason I am selling this is I don’t have time to work on it. It does come with a tow bar and heavy duty winch on the front. When we picked this up it was a ranch jeep and had carpet in it. We took the seats and carpet out. I was going to redo the center console metal work. I have two sets of seats that will come with the jeep and I am also have the back seat that was in it. I can put this on my trailer and deliver if needed for a fee depending on distance.”
