1942 MB Slat Grille Surrey, BC, Canada **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This one is worth a look. Lots of eyeballs watching this auction.

“I am relisting this Jeep with a Buy it Now instead of a reserve. There are 2 original Solid Rims and the original Axe holder which are now pictured and included in the sale. No Axe. Also I will ship the Jeep world wide. Cost to Europe is about $2500 For US buyers I can bring it into Washington State and you can take it from there. For all the on off I have dropped the price slightly also..

This is Willys MB120181… Original 1942 Slat Grill. The jeep is in excellent condition. Runs and drive perfectly. All Gauges and electrical work perfectly.

Motor is strong and runs as it should. Starts up all the time with no hesitation or problems. No Smoke ever. Rest of the drivetrain is perfect.

The body is totally rust free. The data plates are original and the chasis number matches the number plate on the left side frame bumper extension.

It was a full off body restoration. The engine was completely rebuilt and drivetrain also. The rear seat was not restored as it is the original seat and canvas from 1942

This is not a reproduction tub on this Jeep.. It was built/restored before tubs were available. I did confirm this with the past owner.. Panels and metal were used to repair any rust etc then”

You will see extra parts on the car. This is not a total original car. Could also be a great parts car. New gas tank, starter on a 12 volt system, carb, fuel pump, and stuff. “
