1945 MB & other Parts Parker, CO $1000

• CATEGORIES: MB

Could be some value here.

“I purchased this jeep as a project in 06 and haven’t worked on it since. It is a WWII model that I believe was made by ford and has the turret plate on the frame. It was torn down for a body off frame restoration when I picked it up and is in the same condition now. The body and parts have been inside a barn, the engine and frame outside. If I remember correctly the engine is not the original but is out of a “newer” than this jeep. I was told it was running when it was torn down. The pictures are from when I picked it up. The jeep is titled in CO. Reply to this add with questions and for more pics. I have the ability to lift and load onto flatbed trailer.”

Engine is stamped GPW-2766. It also has an “F” script head.
Engine has all major components and spins freely.
All drive train and suspension components present.
Comes with original windshield frame, drivers seat frame and steering wheel.
I also have a set of 4 combat rims included with this jeep.
As you can see it also has the “ram horn” style tow hooks and the period correct U.S.M.C. stenciling on drivers side of tub. These two items can not absolutely confirm but chances are better than average that this was indeed a Marine Corps jeep.”

1942-mb-petaluma-ca

“Over this Memorial Day weekend, consider buying yourself the quintessential American vehicle that won WWII. With a very heavy heart I have decided to part with my jeep. I did a complete restoration on this jeep back in the late 90’s, had it in several Petaluma Veteran’s Day Parades, and used it as a regular driver for a long time. I drove the hell out of it, so much so that it needed to go through another rebuild.

1945 MB Sold at Estate Auction for $3450

• CATEGORIES: Auctions, Features, MB

Joe reported the following:  Wanted to share some pics of a Willys MB, delivery date 3/8/45, that was auctioned in a South Bethany Beach, Delaware estate sale on Saturday, May 15, 2015. Winning bid was $3,450. The jeep appeared to be mostly complete with a majority of hard-to-find-items intact including a tandem tow bar but had lots of surface rust with only one area of rust-through. The motor is seized. Title status was unknown at the time of sale. Proves once again that these little gems are still out there, even after 70 years!!!

1943 MB? East Wenatchee, WA $3500

• CATEGORIES: MB

Of course, it isn’t all stock, but still worth a look. It kind of runs. McLeary is a wet area, so check for rust.

“Hey there, you are looking at a stock Willy’s Flat fender with a L head ford 134 4 cylinder in it. I helped my brother in law out who needed cash, but really do not have the room or time for another jeep project. My father in law did a full brake job,and tune up 4 years ago, and the jeep has not been on the road since. I went to Mcleary, Wa with a battery, 5 gallons of fresh gas and a trailer. I was able to get it running and drive it onto the trailer in just a few mins. It will need lots of tinkering to make it a driver, but the bones are all there and in good shape. Please not trades, or payments. Just looking to recoup my costs. 19k miles on the Odometer, but who knows at this age. ”
