“This jeep is titled and registered (historic) in the state of NJ as a 1945 Willys MB. It was originally made by Willys for the US Army during WWII. Sensible, conservative frame-off resto in 2012. Starts, runs, shifts, steers, and stops great. No excessive smoke or leaks, no popping out of gear, and no rust. Primed with Rustoleum red oxide and finished with three coats of Gillespie 319. New repro (Beachwood OD 3) canvas seats. This is not a trailer queen. Turns heads in parades, at car shows, or as a daily runabout from April to October. Stored in heated garage on trickle charger every winter. If you’re a military buff, this jeep is ready for the hood and bumper stencils of your choice. If you just like old jeeps, this is the very first production model of the vehicle Enzo Ferrari called “America’s only true sports car.”

1945 MB Lufkin, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

(10/12/2015) It needs some work.

“I have a 1945 Willys Jeep MB. I originally got it to restore and as such have gathered a bunch of parts. I drove the jeep into my shop 2 years ago and started pulling the transmission to have it rebuilt and haven’t touched it since. The transmission and transfercase are still in the jeep. It will need to be trailered. I do have another transmission that’s good to go but it’s the civilian version. This is a military jeep with the dash tags still on it. It does have rust holes and isn’t perfect, it’s a project after all. The brakes have all been redone, the tires are good and I have clear tx title in my name ready to go. Some of the parts I have include a transmission, disassembled transfer case, pto, radiator with shroud, hood, windshield hinges and a bunch of miscellaneous small parts. I’m asking $4500 cash OBO. I’m also willing to trade for first generation dodge cummins parts. I hate to sell the jeep but I have more projects than time and I’d like to see it go to someone who will do something with it.

Feel free to email me for more pics or questions. And if you have any 12 valve cummins parts. Make me an offer, all I can say is no.”

1947? MB Truckee, CA $2300


UPDATE: Price dropped to $2300

Was a non-running MB in Reno, so someone was able to add value and get this jeep running. Thanks to Jay for pointing this out. Listed as a 1947 CJ-2A, this looks more like a modified MB/GPW.

“I have a 1947 Jeep Willys CJ2A for sale. It has a 283 V8 Chevy motor with edelbrock carb, stock 3 speed tranny and dana 18 transfer case. The dash is custom with stewart warner gauges. The clutch has been converted to hydraulic and steering wheel with tilt. Great running motor. The jeep is in running condition it is a little ruff around the edges but is a good jeep to run around town or drive around in the woods. New battery and air filter. It has a roll bar but is not currently installed. Asking $2300 or best offer”

Seller lists one jeep as a 1946 MB, but it looks more like a CJ-2A. The green jeep has a swoop entry that is similar to the prototypes, but the dash looks standard.

1942 MB Kenmore, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $10,000.

Looks like a good parade jeep.

“Restored 1942 Willy’s Military Jeep. This jeep was restored about 10 years ago to full military dress. It has a new tub and fenders. It has very few miles on it and has always been garaged and maintained. All mechanicals are in excellent working order and it’s very fun to drive. I call this a parade jeep because it has glossy paint that is easy to keep clean and looks nice in parades but irritates the purists. There are also a few scratches and other details that make it a nice parade Jeep but not necessarily a show winner. If you’re looking for show winner, this one isn’t for you. But if you want a nice driver, this is your Jeep”

1942 MB Project Haymarket, VA $3800


It’s pretty rough.



“I bought someone else’s stalled work in progress several years ago as a 2nd undertaking for me and my son. My boy’s attending college now, so our second Jeep isn’t going to happen. The guy who had the ’42 before us did quite a bit of work on the rolling chassis and tub, but otherwise just bought and stockpiled new parts.

THE BAD — Easier to list what’s not in the “basket” than what is:
• Doesn’t have center data plate or frame tag
• No inner windshield frame
• No instruments other than a fuel gauge
• No radiator, top bows, or distributor..
