1942 MB Canton, OH $8000


Nick shared this one. The glove box lid looks swapped and the tool box lids are missing. Hasn’t been started in a while.

“You are looking at a RARE 1942 Willeys Script Jeep!! It has been garaged or in a barn since purchase in 1946. Owned only by two owners and has title. It has been painted red by the son when he was in high school so it has the army green underneath the red. As you can see from the pictures it doesn’t have much rust for the age in the pictures the spots that don’t have red is the army green underneath and has all the parts except it needs new canvas for the top. It is the early 1942 Willeys because it has the Willeys stamped on the back of it and the military asked them to stop stamping in the end of 1942. It hasn’t been started for 25 years.”

1944 MB? Spanaway, Wa $3500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $3500.

(08/03/2016) Needs a little bit of work. Appears to include the Warn winch. Could be a good jeep for working on and driving (once the brakes are fixed). Has a purpose-built structure for carrying something.

“Can’t bleed the front brakes, no battery other than that everything works”

1944 MB Gardnerville, NV $1600


Has an inline six installed.

“1944 Willys MB WII Jeep project. My brother and I bought this to restore, but we found a different jeep later on which we want to concentrate on instead, and he has since moved to Hawaii. Frame tag has a serial number of MB 324912, which puts it in the 1944 year. Willys MB left toe board gusset has a number of 46344. Willys MB tub toolbox features round style lock depressions and plain style lid. Appears that somewhere a later style “Willys” script hood and windshield frame was added? Spare dash and cowl included to replace cutout dash. Engine is not original to jeep, running condition unknown, newer looking carb. Tub and frame are really solid, but tub has a fair amount of filler, so I assume it needs to be have the metal worked out to be nice. Have not done anything to this jeep since we bought it, just trying to recoup some of our money. Priced right.”

1943 MB Body East Haddam, CT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, MB, Parts

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4999

(02/01/2017) Looks in good shape.


“Up for sale is what I believe to be a model year 1943 Willys MB jeep body.  I took it apart about 30 years ago as it was on a GPW Ford frame.  It is original and in excellent condition for a 70+ year old, mass produced combat vehicle for the government.  These were never made to be like a Porsche and had dents and scratches on delivery.  Please note there is a puncture hole above the airfilter mounting bracket at the transition to the cowl.  It looks like a small forklift fork hit it, but I don’t know. The rear floor (cargo area) was replaced when I got it.

1942 MB Rochester, WA $9500


UPDATE II: Still Available

UPDATE: I mentioned that this could be brought back to original without too much expense. Brian challenged me on that claim (thank you) and determined it could roughly cost about $5800 to do so. Therefore, I shall modify my earlier claim and say that this could be returned to a more militaryish theme without too much effort or expense. 🙂

1942? Flattie Tacoma, WA $1000


It’s got rear floaters. It just might have an MB/GPW chassis. Looks to have a replacement body.

“Too many projects too little time. Include second grill, and set of fenders. I believe the owner before me started restoring and didn’t get far. From what I can tell new front and rear axles. I have signed not transferred title in hand. It’s at my business but is personally for sale. Obviously some rust but most are just light surface, to my knowledge the pan is in good shape.
There is a 4 cylinder engine under the hood – but not running.’
