WWII Bodies and Parts Weatherford, OK **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500.

Not sure how much value is here.

I have a Willy’s FrankeinJeep body tub, fenders, hood, grill, and windshield for sale. Body tub was a MB but someone cut and welded on a civy front end, windshield and grill are also civy. Fenders and hood are off of a Willy’s MZ2 which was a USMC radio Jeep it was built in 1944 according to my research. I wanted to build a rat rod out of it but I have another project that needs funding so this one is going up to help with the cost of the other. I do have the MZ2 body but it is in really bad shape if you want it or other parts I have a few things that can go with it, for a bit more then my asking price, however I do not want to part out the main body I feel it is worth more as a whole for a crawler or rat rod project or even a restoration project. I am willing to wiggle a bit on the price but not much so no low balling I know what I have and what it should be worth and what I could get parting it out. I will not ship this or any parts out I will help load them up however none of it is heavy 2 men can handle the body easy enough. 

Other parts:
CJ2 trans/tcase tcase is locked up but the trans shifts 
CJ2 left and right fenders
I do have a few things off my other project that I intend to sell later and they are a cj2 frame and axles and a few rims 3 civy “Daisy Duke” rims I call them and a few military.”

Year? Flattie Helendale, CA $450


UPDATE: Price dropped to $450.

(04/29/2014) This has an old school feel. This may be a MB or GPW body/chassis. Note the hubs on the rear. What’s really interesting is the reshaped entrances for drive and passenger. It’s well done and gives the jeep a slightly different look.

Bought this Willys to restore but have decided it is too much of a project for me. It is either a 2A or 3A (year and model unknown since no identification on body or frame and no title). It has a modified body, roll cage, frame and axles. Has a raised hood with one rust spot and lots of bondo (probably part of conversion to V8) and modified steering.

I installed used tires since the pictures were taken so I can roll it around. It can be used for parts or rebuilt. Looks like it had a Chevy v8 in it at one time. It has surface rust but metal seems solid (several holes have been cut into the floor and inner front fender wells for unknown reasons).

You may notice the rear axle is really a front axle installed in reverse (reason unknown) and pictures also show a Dana 18 transfer case (it has a hole in the side so case is not useable).

It appears to have re-arched springs to give it a 2-3 inch lift.

Asking $450 with wheels and tires (tires have minimum tread) or $350 without wheels and tires.Jeep is located in Helendale. I can deliver within local area (for a price) if necessary. No title, bill of sale only.

Look at the pictures and contact me if interested. Just trying to get my money back

1943 MB? San Jose, CA $2000



This willys has been sitting in my backyard for about 4 years. It is my dad’s willys. He had originally purchased it for a little property he has in Mexico but was not allowed to import it into Mexico. It starts, drives, and stop but it is really old and not really a good car to go fast in. I have been told that it is NON MILITARY because of the fuel neck filler placement but I am not a expert to confirm this. It has a new stainless steel fuel tank that was replaced by the previous owner. If you would like more info on it give me a call and I will answer your questions as best I can. Thanks. No calls after 9pm please.”
