1945 MB Providence, RI $20,000

• CATEGORIES: MB

Bill shared this MB for sale. Given the price, it’s a little surprising to see that this likely has a CJ-3A or  DJ-3A engine, along with an extra front crossmember and some patches on the front frame rails. Seller says it has combat rims, but I don’t see any in the pics.

1944 MB Westerville, OH BaT

• CATEGORIES: MB

Michael shared this MB with a trailer on the Bring-a-Trailer site.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1944-willys-mb-jeep-2/

1944-mb-westerviille-oh-bat

“This 1944 Willys MB was owned by a World War II U.S. Air Force veteran for approximately 40 years before being inherited by the seller’s spouse in 2019. The truck is powered by a 134ci inline-four mated to a three-speed manual gearbox and a dual-range transfer case, and the body was refinished during the family’s ownership in green with military-style livery and features a canvas soft top, a pioneer tool kit, a jerrycan, and more. The included Willys trailer was purchased and refurbished approximately 25 years ago. This Willys Jeep and trailer are now offered by the seller with period WWII memorabilia, non-operational display machine guns and other items, a technical manual, service records from the past 40 years, and a clean Ohio title in the seller’s spouse’s name.

The seller states that the body was disassembled, refurbished, and repainted in olive drab green with reapplied insignias and livery in the 1990s. The included trailer underwent a similar refurbishment. Additional exterior features include a canvas soft top, a hinged dual-pane windshield, a fender-mounted Federal Enterprises siren, camouflage netting, blackout driving lights, and more. The seller notes that two non-operational display machine guns are included in the sale and can be mounted to the central turret….”

“The Willys Slat Grille jeep was produced only for several years 1941,1942 at the very beginning of WWII. There are many distinguishing differences between the Slat Grill and the MB which followed in production, the main one being the different looking “Slat Grill”, and the letters “WILLYS” stamped in the tailgate on the left side under the gas tank. There are many other differences which separate this early model and the MB which followed. Very few of the Slat grills have survived to today.

This jeep is one of a large collection of early Willys jeeps which was put into storage 50 years ago.
it was running and drivable when stored, however it has not been started for many years.

This jeep is unrestored and completely original. It has its original body which is solid with no rust or dents. It has the original 6 volt electrical system, 4 cylinder (4-134 L head) engine, 3 speed trans, and 4×4 high-low transfer case. It has it’s original sand tan paint and combat wheels. There’s only 19709 miles on the odometer. This one was delivered 1/20/1942.”

CJ-2A/MB Project Lowville, NY $1850

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

Jacob spotted this project for sale. Looks like there’s some value here.

https://watertown.craigslist.org/cto/d/martinsburg-willys-cj2a-jeep/7202131797.html

“1948 Willys CJ2A Jeep that I have been working on for some time to use as a camp jeep. Prior to my purchase the previous owner had completely disassembled it and then cleaned and painted the frame, transmission, transfer case, and the front & rear ends (inside and out). He also replaced the brakes and brake lines.

I mounted a WW2 military body onto the frame which is very solid and has a new floor. The engine is supposed to run and spins freely but I haven’t tried to get it running yet. It was converted to 12volt for easier starting and has an alternator, new gauges and new battery. I have just run out of time to finish it and need the space in my garage for winter. Included with the jeep are a tailgate, windshield frame, steering column, driver and passenger seat, new steering bellcrank repair kit, clutch and brake pedals and other misc. items. It will need a gas tank and muffler, windshield glass and no doubt some other items to finish it up.”
