1943 MB Phoenix, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE:**SOLD** Was $800. This was sold once previously through eWillys.

“I have a 43 Willys MB Jeep. I have used a lot of the parts off this jeep for another build. It does come with frame, tub, engine, trans, transfer case, axles, steering, wheels and tires, and all you see in the pictures. Frame is solid. The floor in the tub has been replaced by someone using regular sheet steel and not replacement pan parts, but they did a decent job. They cut a tail gate into the back and reinforced it with angle iron. Engine is the 134 L-head. It turns over freely, never did try to start it. Transfer case shifts into gears. Transmission does not want to shift into gears. I would recommend both trans and transfer case be rebuilt do to age. Axles appear to be in working order but look like they could use seals. Has original speedo. Steering components are good. Wheels are good but tires are a bit dry. Comes with matching spare.”

Year? MB/2A Charleston, SC $2500


It’s a mix of parts.

“Willis Jeep for restore or parts. Not knowledgeable enough to tell you model or year of jeep just guessing about 1942. Listed it last year for sale and too many jeep enthusiasts convinced me to keep it and restore it like I had always wanted to. I appreciated their encouragement and well wishes but a year has passed and it sits in the same spot.

Since my chickens sit in it more than I do I figured it must go. It may only be good for parts now.

I do not have the time to commit to the project and hope someone that does will want to tackle this one. I do not know where the title is for it. I bought it from overseas. Asking $2500 OBO.”

“This brute is not for every day driving! (although it is licensed {with a clean title}, it’s just unruly).
It’s ALL Chevy drive train and it’s to go and get dirty, climb mountains and dig that rut deeper!! That is what he was rebuilt for.
He’s a monster of a beauty that has no rust with a custom camouflage paint job, a full cage roll bar along with a clean & shiny new Jeep top cover with doors.
His rear end has been shifted back and has a rollover kit and after market GM type hubs.
When I say it’s a brute, I mean it! This engine is tough, enough so, that he has bent the custom drive line! Mr. front axle needs replaced, no time has been set aside for repairs! So who ever he goes home with…..needs to know this! The windshield isn’t 100% & only has one wiper… that’s all we have needed, really. The power steering with tilt is great….. just HOLD ON, he’s gonna go!!
He (speedometer needs serviced) can certainly get up to 65 mph, you shouldn’t tho (if u do, make sure you have Life or Health Ins), so…. just go enjoy the climb.
The drum brakes with power booster is a 1985 Mazda B 2200 system.
The engine does not smoke or use up excess oil with its 80 lbs of oil pressure while running its 350 V 8 stock 4 barrel manifold semi high rise Edelbrock with new Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor and headers attached to the Turbo 400 automatic” tight” transmission with slap stick that is STRONG with original 4 W D transfer case and runs great with 250 HP on it’s 8 cylinders, so there are no transmission problems.
Its a gas drinking automatic, 4 wheeling 4 x 4 running, full size Jeep with custom aluminum radiator with electric fan.
He’s just calling for you!! Oh can’t forget the new cam lifters, timing chain and gaskets & Edelbrock carburetor.
Alas, it’s overall condition for being just over 70 years old is REALLY good.


Buyer is responsible for ALL shipping and handling. Our Jeep wont be ready for shipping until FULL payment is recieved.
Please, don’t forget to bring your trailer to haul this off road monster!!

More photos available for your curiousity! just ask”

1945 MB Ligonier, PA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

Includes an engine.

“1945 Willys MB military Jeep with clear PA title. The Jeep comes with everything needed to do a full restore except for windshield glass and maybe a couple military rims. The Jeep is curently in pieces all over my garage. It comes with a spare tub and a brand new period era canvas top. I purchased this Jeep back in 2000. It was sitting in a garage since 1986 and has been sitting in mine ever since I purchased it. The motor is and authentic willys MB stamped engine. However, it has a Ford stamped head. I do have a Willys head for it. I plan on keeping the Ford marked head. The Willys head has been milled and ready for install. The tub on the Jeep has been modified and so, I have another tub that goes with this deal. Someone through the years decided to cut out the sides of the original tub. I currently have no pictures of the spare tub or the engine but will provide if needed. The motor is sitting in another Jeep and will have to be removed. Rest of the drive train is in the Jeep. I may have another transmission for this too but it might be Ford marked? It’s attached to the motor in the other Jeep. I also have other items that may go with this. It will take some time to go over all this and so, come look if you’re interested. I’ve got way too many projects and so this one must go! ”
