MB-CJ-2A Rolling Prairie, IN $2200


UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/13/2015) This is an MB on a CJ chassis.

“This is a great project for a Jeep person! Two Jeeps for the price of one. First is a military MB Jeep. The body is in good shape, solid, has recored radiator, new front bumper, original rims have been blasted and ready for paint in the back. Some other parts in boxes go along with also. No engine, transmission or transfer case. This one is easily restoreable and would be a great parade vehicle or military collectible. The second Jeep is a civilian CJ2A which is very similar to the first one, it has the drivetrain still in it. Engine is stuck but could probably be freed up. Body on this one is not as bad as some , between the two you can make one runner! Neither one currently has a title, but can be titled with little effort. Asking $2200 or best offer for both, need to go before winter so come look and make an offer!”

“This jeep is titled and registered (historic) in the state of NJ as a 1945 Willys MB. It was originally made by Willys for the US Army during WWII. Sensible, conservative frame-off resto in 2012. Starts, runs, shifts, steers, and stops great. No excessive smoke or leaks, no popping out of gear, and no rust. Primed with Rustoleum red oxide and finished with three coats of Gillespie 319. New repro (Beachwood OD 3) canvas seats. This is not a trailer queen. Turns heads in parades, at car shows, or as a daily runabout from April to October. Stored in heated garage on trickle charger every winter. If you’re a military buff, this jeep is ready for the hood and bumper stencils of your choice. If you just like old jeeps, this is the very first production model of the vehicle Enzo Ferrari called “America’s only true sports car.”

1945 MB Lufkin, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

(10/12/2015) It needs some work.

“I have a 1945 Willys Jeep MB. I originally got it to restore and as such have gathered a bunch of parts. I drove the jeep into my shop 2 years ago and started pulling the transmission to have it rebuilt and haven’t touched it since. The transmission and transfercase are still in the jeep. It will need to be trailered. I do have another transmission that’s good to go but it’s the civilian version. This is a military jeep with the dash tags still on it. It does have rust holes and isn’t perfect, it’s a project after all. The brakes have all been redone, the tires are good and I have clear tx title in my name ready to go. Some of the parts I have include a transmission, disassembled transfer case, pto, radiator with shroud, hood, windshield hinges and a bunch of miscellaneous small parts. I’m asking $4500 cash OBO. I’m also willing to trade for first generation dodge cummins parts. I hate to sell the jeep but I have more projects than time and I’d like to see it go to someone who will do something with it.

Feel free to email me for more pics or questions. And if you have any 12 valve cummins parts. Make me an offer, all I can say is no.”

1947? MB Truckee, CA $2300


UPDATE: Price dropped to $2300

Was a non-running MB in Reno, so someone was able to add value and get this jeep running. Thanks to Jay for pointing this out. Listed as a 1947 CJ-2A, this looks more like a modified MB/GPW.

“I have a 1947 Jeep Willys CJ2A for sale. It has a 283 V8 Chevy motor with edelbrock carb, stock 3 speed tranny and dana 18 transfer case. The dash is custom with stewart warner gauges. The clutch has been converted to hydraulic and steering wheel with tilt. Great running motor. The jeep is in running condition it is a little ruff around the edges but is a good jeep to run around town or drive around in the woods. New battery and air filter. It has a roll bar but is not currently installed. Asking $2300 or best offer”
