UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4500.

It’s a project. Includes a detailed description.


“1945 Willys MB Jeep, Military Restoration Project
Well folks….there’s no sugar coating this one….its a late model 1945 Willys MB! This Jeep was produced just a few weeks prior to the end of the war contract of the Willys MB military Jeep in 1945 (Data tag dated 8/8/45). The last military MB rolled off the assembly line in early September of ’45. (I also have the original data plate and the i.d. tag is still in place on the left front frame horn).
The floors will need to be replaced as they are rusted through in several areas. I do have the original grill and hood (in excellent primered condition, the right (NOS)and left front fenders, and numerous other parts that are not pictured.

I have the heavier replacement front bumper along with the rear cross member if needed. The numbers matching engine ran when this first came home (this has been sitting in my garage for the past 7 years), however, it has a very slight crack in the water-jacket from someone who did not properly winterize it.

“1943 Willys MB military jeep no paperwork (LIGHT BLUE COLOR) in ROUGH SHAPE has BAD FRAME has been neglected outdoors for many years before i was able to save it from the scrapyard. original 4 cyl engine DOES NOT RUN but turns free about 3/4 turn and stops (possibly a valve stuck open) i havent gotten into the engine to find out what is wrong …all wheels/axles roll free body tub is rough shape see pictures does have both front seat frames and also the metal frame/armrest for the rear seat ….has one spare rim and tire not sure if the tire is any good …does not have the original fuel tank with it it was removed before i got the willys <<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>at some point in this old miltary veterans past someone mounted a snow plow on the front but the unique thing about that is it is AIR OPERATED (pneumatic) there is a belt drive compressor on the engine that fills a holding tank(currently mounted between the 2 front seats ) that supplies air to a valve mounted on the steering column that operates a truck AIR BRAKE CANISTER to raise and lower the plow……..that is creativity at its best and working with what you have laying around for sure

1942 MB Slat Grille Denver, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9500.

Runs and drives.

“VIN# 113422
USA # 2046114 S

The first 25,808 Willys MBs used a welded steel grille very similar to the Ford GP design, and there were a host of other differences from the later Willys. These early MBs had “Willys” embossed in the back panel. In production, the slat-grilles were given running changes until they finally evolved into the standard stamped-grille MB we know and love. Around 200 slat-grilles are estimated to survive today.

I have restored 5 combat wheels with new NDT tires
-2 gallons of correct olive drab green
-complete NEW seat canvas
-stencil kit with correct USA #
-Runs and Drives great!

Title matches the frame and tub. I have the original data plates. in 1961 my uncle did an engine swap to a Buick V6. The willys still has the original trans, transfer, front and rear diff, radiator. I do have a complete period correct 134 engine that is included. This is a rust free example

This jeep has been in our family and stored inside since the 50’s.
My Grandfather was a POW in WWII”

1942 MB Abbottstown, PA $3800


UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/12/2015) It’s a project.

“I am not selling a car… I am offering you a piece of America’s awesome history. What you see in the photos is the frame and drive train of the one the machines that was used to assert the U.S. as the world’s first super power. A 1942 Willy’s Jeep MB. By owning just one of these fine pieces of all American ingenuity, you become a finer more patriotic citizen of this great nation. And one day (most likely when you are not looking) the symbol of this land of freedom, yes a bald eagle, will fly over your home and smile down on it. Now by this time you are thinking “I need this Jeep in my life!! But what has been done to it so far?” Well gents I am glad you asked. After rescuing this beautiful thing from an untimely death in a farmers field I (with the help of my amazing father-in-law a mechanic of over 40 year):
ran all new brake lines
all new brake pads
all new brake cylinders
all new master cylinder
rebuilt the transmission
rebuild the alternator
replaced front and rear bumper
replaced all shocks
bought 5 new rims with 5 like new tires (worth about $1000)
bought a new muffler kit
cleaned up the radiator
rebuilt the starter
up graded to a 12v system
and much more….
The Jeep come with many parks, far to many to list everything in fact. Some will need to be replaced and some just cleaned up a bit. The engine is free turning and ran before we disassembled the Jeep.
After all of this work there was a very unfortunate loss. Try as we might, we were unable to save the body tub. However… we did manage to save the very soul of this glorious beast; the iconic Jeep grill.
There is not to much more needed to bring the beautiful creation of the American auto industry back to life. This is why it is the PERFECT starter for someone looking to begin a new year as a “Jeep guy.”
Begin your dream of having an easy project jeep, with restoring a piece of the American dream.
Please call with any questions. I am asking $3800 OBO. Thank you for your time and God Bless”
