1941 MB Slat Grille Mount Lookout, WV eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

This is a rough project.

“THIS IS A VERY EARLY PRODUCTION WILLYS MB. IT HAS SLAT GRILL AND REAR WILLYS SCRIPT. THE VIN IS I02095.
THIS CAME FROM A FARMERS FIELD WHERE IT HAS BEEN SITTING SINCE THE 1950’S. THE JEEP FLOOR BOARD IS VERY RUSTY BUT THE REAR IS PRETTY GOOD. THE MOTOR WAS COVERED AND HAS OIL IN IT. TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE ARE STILL IN THE JEEP. THIS WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT WILLYS TO RESTORE GIVEN IT IS SUCH AN EARLY PRODUCTION. PLEASE SEE ALL THE PICTURES WHICH INCLUDE A LOT OF PARTS. NO TITLE. WILL PROVIDE BILL OF SALE.”

(11/12/2014) It’s been in the family for a while.

“It is not a stock motor… I do know it’s a V6. I have the top frame.. Seen in the photos leaning next to the jeep on the right.

The radiator hose is off and the fan is off. It needs a battery and fan belt, radiator hoses. Plus it looks like the passenger side wheel bearing is leaking and needs repaired.

My dad had a mechanic working on it. My dad past away. The mechanic told me he did get it running. I am not able to check it myself.

One side is cracked on the windshield. I am asking $7500. I will accept the best offer I get.

There looks to be value here.

“1945 Willys MB, ford 4cyl motor out of a 72 ford pinto, original t89 transmission, had it running, driving and stopping in the summer but the gas tank is disconnected at the moment. This Willys is solid but has seen its fair share of work in the past 70 years. Gas tank well and rear fender compartments are rotted everything else is solid. Front and rear bumpers are lally columns. There is NO TITLE and I do not believe it was ever titled it has been on a farm in MA since mid 70s and at a bear camp in Maine prior to that.”

1943 MB Amarillo, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was $12,500 **SOLD**

(02/10/2015) Sounds like this might have some interesting history.

“Up for sale is my 1943 Willys MB army jeep. It was motor pool refurbished by a WWII veteran and friends. I bought it from his son after he passed on. When I bought it I cleaned the fuel tank and lines and installed a new fuel pump. It runs okay but the engine needs a tune up. Brakes work good. Transmission runs quietly, but shifts poorly from 1st to second, and back. Tub was rusty but repaired. Needs new wiring, and generator rebuilt. Lights don’t work. Have speedometer and other gauges, but aren’t in great shape. Needs shocks. Comes with new NDT tires. Also have 5 combat wheels that go with it. This jeep has lots of extras. Clear open title. Reenactment quality. $12,500. I like to trade, but don’t ask unless you have a delorean or clean jeep wrangler /sahara that is paid for. Price is firm, I don’t have to sell. Don’t need a job, or help selling it. As always, local pickup and cash only. Serious inquiries only”

1945 MB Stony Creek, VA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was $20,000. **SOLD**

(08/28/2014) Looks solid.

I am selling my 1945 Willy’s MB that I restored in 2005. Since the restoration the Jeep has been driven 3000 miles and is in perfect running and driving condition. Every part on this jeep has been replaced or re-built when the restoration was done.The only bad thing about the Jeep is that it has some minor bumps and minor scratches from being driven, stored , shows and parades. With that being said it is not a trailer queen I have enjoyed driving it every one of those 3000 miles. The only reason I am selling it is because I don’t have time for it and keeping it stored is not doing it any favors. I would love for this Jeep to go to someone that will use and enjoy it.The Jeep includes the working Radios, and plenty of gear to go with it to make it authentic. The DOD on this Jeep is 7/11/1945. The Body is a reproduction but the frame and most of the hardware is either NOS or original. This was an original radio jeep and the old body can be included with the sale if the buyer wants it. The restoration was photo documented and I have all receipts to show that I am asking much less than I have in it. The Jeep has a clean VA title and YOM license plate that can be registered to the new owner.”

1942 BRT MB Slat Grille Boise, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: SOLD on eBay for 8628.

This is a unique jeep. It’s a Slat Grille with a Glove Box built for Britain. Read all about it below.

1942-mb-slat-brt-boise-id1 1942-mb-slat-brt-boise-id2 1942-mb-slat-brt-boise-id3 1942-mb-slat-brt-boise-id4

 

===============

UPDATES:
I’ve had a few questions on the signifcance of the BRT designation and why it is so unique.

What the BRT specifically stands for is “Britian” and it’s marked specifically on the data plate in the “mystery box” on the line that says “MAKE MODEL” “WILLYS MB” just above the Serial Number location.

The BRT marking makes this jeep specifically a British contract jeep. Produce by the Willys Factory specifically for export for the British military during the war. Exports contract negotiated happened before the US even entered the war. Making even the story of the BRT’s very interesting.

Eventually some of the British contracts request were filled with reconditioned vehicles due to American war needs. The actual number of BRT jeeps that were produced is very few and fewer survive today.

There is an excellent sections on Export jeeps specifically the BRT and specifically differences in markings and later modifications written by Peter Ferris in Lloyd White’s book “The Evolution of the Willys-Overland MB Jeep Volume 1” (chapter 8 for those of you that have the book; but if you would like to know where to get a copy of the book send me an email and I can set you in the right direction)

As noted earlier being that this slat has a glove box it is VERY rare, being that it has the BRT designation makes it even rarer. This jeep is one of the most unique, smallest production, most coveted jeeps of the war, and very deserving of a proper restoration.

Lots of small misc parts will go with this to include canvas for seats, repro bumper, repro hat channels, fuel tank sump, and many small misc parts. Frame serial number confirmed is 198348. Data plates are missing. This vehicle has a title. This was a parts jeep that is why so many items are missing. No original wheels, engine, gauges seats or underhood items are left.

Year? MB? Valley, AL **SOLD**

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

It’s a project/parts jeep.

“WWII Jeep
Did run when we parked it.
Looks mostly original.
This is definitely for enthusiasts. If you don’t know anything about these you probably don’t want it.
The longer this ad is up the more information I keep receiving from people educating me on what I have. It’s worth much more than $1500. But since that’s the price I decided on I’m not going to change it. However I have decided that the $1500 is a firm price. I hope someone with the money and time to restore it buys it. Would love to see it go to a good home. Cheers.”
