“The serial number matches to ones manufactured in 1943. By what I can tell online, many army jeeps received a year designation when the were sold to the public, not when they were actually made.

This jeep was purchased by my Great Uncle in 1945 when he returned home from WWII. It has been in the family since. He and his brothers only ever used it to plow snow (there is a plow included if you want it).

The white top is a Korean War era top that they added later. 9,000 miles. Not a typo. It wasn’t driven much. (I’ll change it to the exact mileage later – I don’t have that info on me right now).

I HAVE THE TITLE. I know this is very important and many people don’t have the title for a jeep of this era. It costs $500 to replace a title.

1942 MB Twin Cities, MN $16,950


Not quite restored, but looks good.

“For sale is a Willys MB with a 1942 GPW frame. Previous owner’s grandfather brought the vehicle back from Europe after the war. It has since been restored and a new tub was installed so this is not a numbers matching vehicle. It is a beautiful Jeep to drive, take to shows and use in parades. Absolutely NO rust. Engine was completely taken apart and rebuilt by professionals a month or so ago. Have receipts for $5K worth of work and parts. New period correct wiring harness. All lights and gauges work. 4wd works. Runs like a top. Lots of other improvements. Long story short, it is like new. Let me know if you have any questions. Don’t need help selling. ”
