It’s a mix of CJ and MB/GPW parts.


“This is a great Jeep! Runs and drives have a clear title in hand. Some extra parts are available with it as well. Including some handles for the tub. I still some have some of the paint from when it was painted! There’s also a new clutch, it’s still drivable but it will need a clutch eventually and I have those parts as well.”

1944 MB Shingle Springs, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $15,000.

Seller does not want to ship. The jeep might need some wiring fixes.

“December 1944 delivery date willys MB. Fires up quick and easy, runs and drives great. All original body, frame, axles, engine, trans and transfer case. Data plates on glove box original and match frame tag.

There are some reproduction parts on this jeep like the black out light, carry handles, wheels, top bows, new a upholstery. Partial restoration done as accurate as possible for exterior looks.

Wiring has some issues PO hooked in a electric pump and it starts by dash button instead of floor button now, not sure if charging system is working. I would consider a new harness later and getting the missing air cleaner and fuel filter to make it more original.

There is absolutely no bondo or body work done and you can tell by being able to see the factory seam welds and little imperfections. There is some rust in floor boards that goes into the hat channels beneath. Common issue and better to have that than bad a repair job. Not willing to ship to another country or state.”

1945 MB? Springfield, OR No Price


Lots of mods. I’d be surprised if this was “plated” as having served in Pearl Harbor during WWII (obviously wouldn’t have arrived until sometime in 1945 at the earliest if it is a 1945).

“One of a kind. 1945 Jeep. 6 inch lift. On 35s. Full arb air lockers in each axle. On board air compressor and air tank for tires also. Custom roll cage. CD player. Has soft top and doors all in good condition. I’ve owned this for over 10 years. My boys are beginning to out grow it. So thinking I may sell this. Or trade it. It runs great. Plenty of power. 4 speed manual. Dual transfer case. Warn winch. Everything works except the speedo but I just go with flow of traffic. Not sure how to put a price on such a rare unique piece of American history. Plated and documented it’s been in Pearl Harbor. World war 2. So I’m taking offers. I paid 8k for this and have put in a few grand over the years for suspension and tires are new. Mileage is unknown”

1943 MB Claremont, NH No Price


Looks good, but does have some issues as Craig notes. It does not have the original body.


“Listing my fully restored 1943 Willys MB. Purchased back in 2014 and performed a 100% restoration. Original running gear, but does have a new body on it. I’ve only driven 1100 since the restoration. Everything is 100% correct for the vehicle, I can give the interested party a complete run down on what has been done and an idea of the money invested into it. I do not need to sell it, but for the right price I will let it go to a new home. It’s currently in storage for the winter in a heated garage but is fully accessible should someone want to come purchase it. Please message me with your contact information and I will call and or text a reply. I will not be accepting off the cuff offers, and I’m not currently looking for any trades. In response to recent messages, this not a $10000 vehicle, I have over $27k invested and that is what I’m looking to get for it.”

1945 MB Providence, RI $20,000


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.


“1945 Willy’s MB Jeep SN 451888. Jeep has been stripped media blasted and re painted. Solid tub frame, glass. New seat canvas, body mounts, tires, paint, wheel cylinders, brake lines, data plates, canvas top, 6 volt wiring, and rebuilt generator. All lights work to include blackouts. Runs and drives great 4×4 works great. Lots of extra parts and accessories to include tire pump, fire extinguisher, ax, combat rims, shovel ect.
Jeep has a clean title. No rot or rust.”

1944 MB Westerville, OH BaT


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



“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….”

Year? MB? Tacoma, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

Has indents and an inlet, but the inlet could have have been added afterwards given it is atop the diamond plate. This is not running.
