1943? CJ-2A/MB? Mt. View, CA $3000


Might be a combination of 2A and MB parts. It’s got an engine issue.

“I have an old Jeep that is titled as a 1943. Although could be a cj 2. 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.
Willing to listen to trade offers of equal value. Would like a newer jeep pre 1975.
The jeep runs and drives but after 15-20 minutes the engine loses power, Not sure what issue is, Being sold as “Project” as it sits. Currently i couldn’t sell it as a driver until the engine has been gone over.”

1942 MB Westminster, CO $1800


Includes a new floor.


1942-mb-westminster-colo1 1942-mb-westminster-colo2

“Hello this listing is for a 1942 Willys MB Jeep. It has been disassembled by my brother and I and as more projects came up this one got set aside. Now instead of letting it rot away we thought we’d pass it on to the next lucky owner. This was our grandfather’s Jeep and has been in our family for as long as I can remember, 30 or 40 years!

The engine was started two years ago and it went into gear without a problem.of course that was before we took it apart last winter. However we haven’t disassembled any parts of the drivetrain it is all still intact. The engine isn’t correct for the vehicle it was rebuilt and installed in the 80s and probably only has a couple thousand miles on it. It’s a 1956 L head out of a cj3b if I remember correctly. I remove the starter to see if it would work in another Willys we have but it didn’t so that will be with it as well I’ll try to install it in the next couple days if it doesn’t sell right away.
The floors were pretty rusted so we remove them and bought brand new front and rear replacement floor kits! For the two floor panels and a couple of gauges we bought at the same time for this Jeep it was over $1,200!
