There is a clear title showing ownership from the 1980’s to present
This vehicle has been garaged on and off in it’s life ….looks like it just came off the battle field now.

The engine smokes a little now.

1943 MB Tampa, FL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $20000

Looks parade ready.

“This is a prime example of a WWII army jeep – a 1943 Willys MB that has been FULLY RESTORED. NO EXPENSE has been spared in restoring this wonderful piece of WWII history. I have owned this Jeep for three years and have over 15K in restoration. I also repainted it the CORRECT Gillespie Coatings AJP paint, which is correct for all MB/GPWs prior to late 1944.

All original but it does have a Bessinger replacement body. Engine, drive train, all restored and rebuilt. It has 5 combat wheels, new Firestone military NDT tires, grease gun, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, windshield-mounted rifle rack, new canvas coverings for the seats and new canvas top, etc…I also converted it to a 12 volt system for safety, but modified an old 6 volt voltage regulator box to cover the 12 volt solenoid. Only someone with a trained eye could spot the upgrade. It has the original oil bath air cleaner, correct fuel/water separator and oil filter.
Interior–all gauges work, floor push starter, blackout light switch, handbrake, brass fire extinguisher, combat steering wheel, & kidney pad. It also has the grease gun, mounting bracket, and maintenance record mounted under the hood. It has the original tire pump under the back seat, too.

I also have SEVERAL WWII musette bag, wooden ammo boxes, a WWII field phone, two original WWII M1 helmets, and a wood/metal REPLICA .30 Thompson sub machine gun. Anyone who is interested in WWII reenacting, parades, etc., will have EVERYTHING they need to jump right in. Oh, I also have a 101st Airborne XL WWII Jump Uniform (replica).”

Pascal forwarded this unique collection for sale on eBay. It includes, an MB,M38,M38A1,M170,M151A1,M422A1. Lots of pics.

“Description
Up for sale is a unique collection of the span of the military jeep generations. Our founder has been collecting these Jeeps for decades and has decided to sell his collection in its entirety.

Over the past decades, our founder collected the cream of what came by our doors, and stored them away in his personal collection. As we are also one of the biggest Jeep Parts distributors in the USA this was a relatively easy task, both to find these jewels and to refit them with whatever parts that were needed. Part can be found at Jeeps Surplus in Oroville, CA. The only vehicle in this collection not running is the “1960 AMC M422A1 MITY MITE”, which hasn’t had any engine work.

The purchase price for the entire jeep collection is $100,000.00. We will not be selling these jeeps individually.”

1941 Slat Grille MB Santa Rosa, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE:Was on eBay. **SOLD**

(12/29/2013) This no glovebox slat grille has potential.

“This Jeep is being sold as a parts jeep or a solid restoration candidate.
It is a early Willys Slat Grill jeep.
Original data plates
Serial Number 103390 on data plate
Date of is 12-11-41
Frame tag is painted over but I suggest it matches the data plate
Engine number is MB113681

I hate to see this parted out because it would make an EXCELLENT frame off restoration project.
The frame is solid, the fenders and hood are good also.
The “Willys Script “tub needs new sheet metal in many areas but is actually very straight. Previous owner cut out most of all the bad areas already.
The windshield is good but is a victim over alot of overspray, which probably saved it.
T 84 Transmission is also early type, filler on pass side. I can not verify if it is ford or willys.
Comes with four combat rims

Located in Santa Rosa, Calif
Serious bidders please consider coming to see it in person.
Buyer is responsible for all shipping arrangements.
Sold as is where is.”

1943 MB Tijeras, NM **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $1900

(01/20/2014) This includes a new tub. Looks like it could be a good price for everything.

“I have a jeep project. I have a titled 1943 Willys MB (WWII jeep — VERY hard to find!), currently not running (was running when parked about 5 years ago), with all correct drivetrain EXCEPT for the engine (it has a later model F head, rather than the original L head). It does have the correct T-84 transmission and all the other correct moving parts. The body is rough and needs work — BUT, I have all the replacements parts in another tub, so between the two of them you could put together a nice WWII jeep. I even have a civilian L-head engine (will need to be rebuilt) so, though you wouldn’t have the exact correct engine — you would be close. I don’t have the seats or many other of the correct bits (like the combat wheels — sorry). I only want $1900 for all. You could pull the F-head and sell it to recoup some of the money. It is located in Albuquerque NM and would need to be transported wherever you are.”

It’s a project.

“I have a 1944 Willys MB for sale. I bought this to restore and it has turned out to be more than I would like to take on. The body and frame seem to be original but the motor looks to be out of a CJ3A. The engine runs smooth but will blow some blue smoke after running for several minutes.
I currently have the body detached. I do have the title.
All in all, it is a good jeep for someone looking for a restoration project or parts. Please email with questions.
Asking $2000 but is negotiable.
Buyer will be responsible for picking up.”
