1942 MB Abbottstown, PA $3800

• CATEGORIES: MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/12/2015) It’s a project.

“I am not selling a car… I am offering you a piece of America’s awesome history. What you see in the photos is the frame and drive train of the one the machines that was used to assert the U.S. as the world’s first super power. A 1942 Willy’s Jeep MB. By owning just one of these fine pieces of all American ingenuity, you become a finer more patriotic citizen of this great nation. And one day (most likely when you are not looking) the symbol of this land of freedom, yes a bald eagle, will fly over your home and smile down on it. Now by this time you are thinking “I need this Jeep in my life!! But what has been done to it so far?” Well gents I am glad you asked. After rescuing this beautiful thing from an untimely death in a farmers field I (with the help of my amazing father-in-law a mechanic of over 40 year):
ran all new brake lines
all new brake pads
all new brake cylinders
all new master cylinder
rebuilt the transmission
rebuild the alternator
replaced front and rear bumper
replaced all shocks
bought 5 new rims with 5 like new tires (worth about $1000)
bought a new muffler kit
cleaned up the radiator
rebuilt the starter
up graded to a 12v system
and much more….
The Jeep come with many parks, far to many to list everything in fact. Some will need to be replaced and some just cleaned up a bit. The engine is free turning and ran before we disassembled the Jeep.
After all of this work there was a very unfortunate loss. Try as we might, we were unable to save the body tub. However… we did manage to save the very soul of this glorious beast; the iconic Jeep grill.
There is not to much more needed to bring the beautiful creation of the American auto industry back to life. This is why it is the PERFECT starter for someone looking to begin a new year as a “Jeep guy.”
Begin your dream of having an easy project jeep, with restoring a piece of the American dream.
Please call with any questions. I am asking $3800 OBO. Thank you for your time and God Bless”

1942 MB Slat Grille Alvin, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was Make Offer.

It’s a project.

“I recently bought this WWII 1942 serial number 112111, Willys slat grille Jeep to restore. But, after I realized the rarity of this model and everyone has been wanting to buy it from me, I decided to offer it up for TRADE only. What I really want is a late WWII Ford built GPW Jeep that is in far better condition or much farther along in a restoration. I’m not interested in trading for anything other than a FORD made Jeep that is in BETTER condition than this far more desirable slat grill Jeep that I have. I’m NOT going to sell the Jeep, only trade it for a GPW.

This Willys MB has no title, is not running, but the engine is not locked. The engine and transmission are from a later civilian Jeep. There is rust in the body but not terrible. It appears that the body had been sandblasted at some point and then someone patched the floors and bondoed over dents. Over all, this Jeep is in far better condition than most of the unrestored Jeeps I’ve found.”
