1943 MB Croton, OH Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: MB

Has a price listed of $8888, but that appears to be a placeholder. The seller is more interested in trades or an offer. Looks like a tailgate has been added to the back.

1942 Holden-Designed GPW Redding, CA $1552

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE II: The header has been corrected. It’s actually a GPW. I’ve also added some additional pics:

UPDATE: It appears this may be a USMC-modified based on the Holden design, rather than an actual Holden. This may explain why Frank isn’t seeing details he’s expecting to see (see comments)? 

A person I trust has checked this out and confirms it’s a USMC Holden. But, it’s rough, too.

1942 MB Montrose, CA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: Still Available

The serial number is listed as #GPA8424, which is strange given it does not look like a GPA nor a GPW. However, the dash plate indicates the serial number is 198360, which puts it as a very late 1942 MB.

“I am posting my 45 MB for sale. Basically I am looking for a house and need to free up some money for a downpayment! My loss is your gain. Open to offers!

Here is a 1945 Willy’s MB. All body sheet metal is original. New safety glass windshield. The motor is I believe an early CJ2A. It’s a strong runner (can do over 60 easily), but I believe is developing a leaky rear main seal. T-84 trans; and proper WWII style transfer case. Earlier transfer case as it has the external parking brake. 4 original combat wheels with newer firestone NDTs. New rear springs as of 2 years ago.

Older canvas and foam seats but a like new top made by Farrel Fox 3 years ago. Does NOT come with the dummy machine gun but does come with the dash mount installed. Data plates are reproduction. All original rebuilt differentials. Radiator is original war time. If you’re from the Albany NY area you may recognize her; she’s done a lot of events up here since 2010! Just want to see it go to a good home”
