1944 MB Western Colorado **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was Highest offer gets the jeep.

“It breaks my heart to put this war Jeep up for sale. This old girl went over there and was loved so much they sent her back. She still retains a rebuild tag on the transfer case. It shows it was rebuilt by the ordinance corps in Japan. (see pics) This is a true barn find. Owned by the same family since the 50’s and stayed on a ranch in Montrose, Co. (High desert climate, so very little rust) Still has many of it’s original features as you can see in the pictures, including it’s olive drab steering wheel! Currently is running, driving and stopping. Has new brake and fuel systems. However the tires are pretty weather checked. They hold air and would be fine for trailering.

She currently has an overhead valve engine. I have the flathead engine that came with the Jeep (disassembled, of course) that I will include in the sale. Body is solid with a couple of small rust spots (see pics) frame is rock solid. I have posted a lot of pictures and have many more upon request. Email me with your phone number and WAR JEEP in the subject line. All others will be deleted due to spamming. I will happily return all calls and answer any questions. I am only selling due to an illness in the family. This does not mean I will take any low ball or just plain silly offers. Only Email if you’re serious, already have the money, and permission from your wife. I would like to sell this week to the highest bidder! Do not NEED to sell this week. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Cash sale only. Will assist with loading.”

Year? MB? San Luis Obispo, CA $4495


Listed as a 1953, it’s more like a rough MB.

“1953 Willy’s Army Jeep with the original 1953 Willy’s engine, VIN#426445. unknown miles. $4,495or best offer. I’ve replaced the brake lines, wheel cynlinders and brakes, clutch and pressure plate, the ring gear on the fly wheel and the starter. It ran fine the last time I used it which was several years back. I’m selling it as is. These jeeps have a lot of potential and you could easily make it into a $15,000 jeep. There’s an army serial number on the right front hood that’s hard to read after 62 years. The numbers on the hood are original and as far as we can tell they are _0_08659. ”

Year? Flattie Waco, TX $2000


This has some odd mods.

“This Jeep is being sold for parts. It was bought for parts to fix another older jeep but this one has had some custom modifications from the past owner who used it as a farm vehicle. It has a V-6 and a manual three speed transmission with 4WD. The differentials and transmission would be excellent for off road builds. This jeep is being sold as is and in one piece. It does not have tires so the buyer is responsible for loading and transporting the Jeep. I am ready to get rid of this jeep so the price could be negotiated.”

Year? MB? Deltona, FL **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000

Listed as a 1946 CJ-2A, it looks more like an MB with a CJ front clip.

“New: Carb, gas tank, oil pan gasket, fuel pump, ignition parts. other brake parts.

This is considered a collectors item in many circles.
I had it running and driving but I ran out of time and money. It will need to be transported out but it rolls easily. All of the tires hold air. The only thing it needs to run is to re-install the oil filter and oil lines. It is an easy fix. When running, it smoked a little, but that is expected from a 68 year old vehicle. I have a title for it and a paper trail. It has been bought and sold a few times without the title being changed over.

This is an excellent vehicle to drive and restore at the same time. There are many parts available for it and it’s easy to work on. Own a piece of history!”

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.”
