“With a very heavy heart I have decided to part with my jeep. I did a complete restoration on this jeep back in the late 90’s, had it in several Petaluma Veteran’s Day Parades, and used it as a regular driver for a long time. I drove the hell out of it, so much so that it needed to go through another rebuild. And that is where she is today, in the middle of a rebuild. However, I find that I am at an impasse and I’m just not getting this project done so it’s time to go.

MB/M-38 San Gabriel Valley, CA $6700

• CATEGORIES: M-38, MB

It’s a mix of parts.

“This Willys is a true survivor. The id number is a MB number, but is considered a 1947 by the DMV. The tub is a MB. The jeep was modified for a film to look like a M38. The driver side has been smoothed over with bondo at some point, but the ribs for the tools can be seen on the inside.
The window is post war as well as the M38 grille. The jeep will need to be seen.
It needs tlc for sure but is a driver.
I have the window rubber, just no glass.
The engine is what I can best figure is a 1953 F-Head Hurricane engine. It has the generator, but is wound to a 12v system.
It has Model A tail lights.
The tires are new as of July 22nd. I also had Willys hand painted on the rear tailgate, as well as a personal tribute to a fallen family member, as well as a WWII Kilroy was here.
I am also having the rims painted green this week.
I am fixing it up as I keep driving it. If it doesn’t sell for my price, I will be fixing it up and keeping it.
The footlocker doesn’t go with the jeep.”

The tires are too big, so I pulled off the rear, but the front still cause it to rumble a bit. When it sells I will be taking off the rear wheels and putting back on the big ones. You will need to put new rubber on unless you don’t mind the rumble and wobble they cause. ”

1942 GPW/MB Weslaco, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7999

(07/06/2015) There are several reasons this shouldn’t sell for $20k besides the incorrect engine.

“With great sadness I am selling my 90% restored World War II Ford GPW/MB. She has been sitting in a carport for the better part of 5 years and needs to find a good home to hit the parade circuit again. The body is all original as is the two piece windshield. She has the original manufacturing plates on the passenger side, black-out lighting, all gauges, new gas tank, the original 6volt electrical system, original military type tires, and fully restored engine. A note about the engine: the engine came off a 1938 Willys Sedan Coupe! That is the only reason this parade/museum piece is not going for 20k. The restored engine has less than 500 miles on it as does the fully restored drivetrain to include the drum drivehaft brake.”

Plain and Simple: You will not find one as clean and mechanically sound as this one. 50 caliber gun mount still there. Fully street legal and fully tagged, ready for anything you want to throw at it. Customized for Off Road, however drives great on road. Virtually every mechanical part is brand new. I have invested approximately $30,000 of which I have all the receipts for. Work was either professionally performed or brand new mechanical parts meticulously installed with new gaskets and proper torque settings. Looks great in pictures and even better in person. I am selling because I don’t have the time to use it and it is taking up needed space in garage. Stored in garage every day since ownership. It has been on the Rubicon Trail 3 times with ease, never sustaining any damage, getting stuck, or need for winch. Below is a sample of the upgrades/mods that were performed:
