1945 MB East Wenatchee, WA eBay


Only one bid on this one so far.

“When i was 14 years old my father bought me my first car this is it. The item your looking at is a 1945 Willy’s MB. it is all original when we got it the guys said it just needed a fuel pump but i never got around to doing that. The only thing i ever did it was paint it green. We sanded down through the hood paint once to find that the original numbers are still there. I wish i could keep it forever but i will be happy to see it go to a good home. ”

1945 MB Atascadero, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6000.

As Andy points out, it appears to have a CJ-3A chassis.

“For sale is a 1945 Willys MB Jeep. It has the period correct Go-Devil engine stamped MB-396861, placard serial 258532. Odo reads 7897 miles. Body is in good shape, it is painted metallic blue mostly, with some painted primer white due to a small body repair.

1943 MB Phoenix, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE:**SOLD** Was $800. This was sold once previously through eWillys.

“I have a 43 Willys MB Jeep. I have used a lot of the parts off this jeep for another build. It does come with frame, tub, engine, trans, transfer case, axles, steering, wheels and tires, and all you see in the pictures. Frame is solid. The floor in the tub has been replaced by someone using regular sheet steel and not replacement pan parts, but they did a decent job. They cut a tail gate into the back and reinforced it with angle iron. Engine is the 134 L-head. It turns over freely, never did try to start it. Transfer case shifts into gears. Transmission does not want to shift into gears. I would recommend both trans and transfer case be rebuilt do to age. Axles appear to be in working order but look like they could use seals. Has original speedo. Steering components are good. Wheels are good but tires are a bit dry. Comes with matching spare.”
