1944 MB Roseville, CA $43500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $3500.

It’s a project with a Sears hardtop.

“Letting go of my ’44 MB. Awesome rolling project with a unique piece raily to never seen. This one has a hard top! It is an aftermarket hard top sold by Sears in the early 50’s and is prett rare as I have never seen another one on an MB. Has Buick V6 with cast iron block, great reliable engine. I have a few boxes of other spare parts to add in, seat pads, stick shift boots, brake cylindars, etc. Needs an altenator and a new front passenger side axle. Both easily findable after market parts.

Has been garaged since I got it from my uncle a few years back. It was in working condition when he parked it about 20 years ago and sat outside under a covered roof during that time, so pretty well preserved with very little rust issues. Other than someone stealing the altenator off of it, it is all there.”

1944 MB/CJ-2A Alma, MI **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

It doesn’t run at the moment. Has a VEC 2A body.

“1944 Jeep Willys CJ2A/MB/GPW
I have owned this jeep for 8 years and it has been a great project. Tub/Body is an early example CJ2a with tool indents. I got this jeep in to running condition and fixed it up to be a Parade and around town runner. Engine is a L134 “Go Devil” 4cyl with 3 speed T-90 floor shifter. The Jeep is mostly complete, but not a show piece. It has unfortunately sat for the last 4 years not getting used.  Although it did run when parked it will need to be gone through again to get it into running condition.

It comes with some rarer jeep parts including some stamped F(ford) parts, 3 solid disk(non- slotted) rims, and the early CJ2A tub with tool indents.

This Jeep will also have a clear Titled in my name for a 1944 Ford GPW, I licensed and insured the jeep as such, in the time that I’ve owned it. The Jeep has the accompanying data plate matching the title. I ran the appropriate serial number searches, with the state when I bought it, verifying no outstanding history. Getting this Jeep licensed and insured will not be an issue.

It has been a fun toy, that always grabs attention, but it’s time to move it on to someone who can invest time into it. ”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1450

(08/23/2016) The chassis is from a CJ-2A.

“I have a 1942 Willy MB project. I do not have the time or space to complete this the way I would like it. I have all the components, hood, grille, fenders, tub, frame, wheels/tires, seat, fuel tank, steering shaft and wheel, axels, motor and transmission. The frame is from a 1947 CJ-2 I was modifying it to be like the 1942 frame. This is where I have run into trouble the frame is setup for the T-90 transmission not the T-84 I want to have on it. I also have another motor. It is title and registered. Engine does run. Everything is apart right now waiting for the right person to complete. ”

1945 MB Livermore, CA $4650


it’s sitting in front of a 4×4 shop in Livermore.

“This is a 1945 Willys MB flat fender jeep. The jeep is currently the centerpiece out in front of The 4 x 4 Shop in Livermore California. The jeep is far from perfect but was a runner when parked between the poles a year and a half ago. The jeep is currently registered in California though the photos show it with the New Mexico plate and it still wears its original data plates on the glove box door as well as the data plate on the frame. The paint job was done with the rattle cans for the grand opening of the store, and has been written on by hundreds of children with a sharpie marker . It’s actually a pretty entertaining peace . But unfortunately I am purchasing a new Willys shop truck so one of them has to go . The phone number listed is for the store and our store hours are Monday through Friday 9 to 6 and Saturday 9 to 3 . Or feel free to email and I’ll respond as soon as possible . The jeep will remain between the poles until a deal is struck .”
