1942 Flattie Atwater, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1650.

“Runs pretty good, carb runs rich sometimes but not always. Needs the clutch worked on, it’s has no more adjustment left. Drives good and 4 wheel works. Modified for hunting or ranch work not to restore, there’s been a lot of work done to build it as a hunting rig so the purist wouldn’t want it. It has a Hurricane F-161 from a willys wagon put into it so it has lots of torque. The brakes work great, the lights work, it just needs seat pads and the clutch fixed to start using it. There are no major rust issues other than a couple of spots in the floor under the seats. Not a structure issue. The gas tank is rusted out so I use a gas can with a hose in it. Small tanks are available, the stock style replacements cost too much. It comes with a bill of sale only, DMV can’t find it in the system. More on Craigslist”

1942 Slat Grille MB Dallas, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD**

“This a Willys Slat Grille MB is in need of a full restoration but is a great start and retains much of its originality.  The OD paint is still under the other layers of paint.

The DOD is 2 Feb. 1942 and the USA number is 204748?, the body number is 20033 and it has the square deep well with the script Willys on the rear panel.

It has had government upgrades such as the rear panel reinforcement and trailer socket added.  The engine needs to be rebuilt but is an MB replacement engine with a blank pad.  It has a casting date of 12.30 and is probably a 1944 block.

Both front seats are the original early split pattern and the driver’s seat pan has been modified for the later wide mouth style fuel tank and filler neck.

It also comes with the original early style rear seat.”

1944 MB Summerville, SC **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:Was $3500. **Sold**

(02/06/2013) Bo is selling his 1944 MB Project

“I have for sale an early 1944 MB 340503 for sale. I’ve cleaned (to bare metal), primed and painted most of the external surfaces. A lot of body work was done, too, although I left all of the dents in place. In time, the hat channels will need to be replaced.

Here is a link to my blog that covers in better detail what was done and how it currently looks.

Post war engine (not running, but will turn over), T84 transmission, Dana 18 transfer case (both shift, but will probably need rebuilt), and the jeep rolls.

Right now I’m asking $4000 or best reasonable offer. No title, just a bill of sale. Located in Summerville, SC.

Its a good start for somebody else to restore! If you could post it on your site, I would be grateful. If it sells, I will totally donate to keep this place up and running!! By the way, your efforts have been extraordinary the past week. I think it looks great! DoD was 6-8-1944

1950? CJ-3A? Lake Isabella, CA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, MB

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $650.

Joe spotted this jeep. I believe the price dropped from $1100 to $650, despite what the text says in the ad. Also, this might have an overdrive or the seller is confusing that with the transfercase. This could be a MB or GPW instead of a 1950 flattie.

“Complete but needs work. I was going to build it into a crawler but I found another that is a better fit for my growing family. I will sell it for $600 without the motor/trans/overdrive unit. If you want the motor/trans/overdrive I would take $1100. It has a chevy V8 and it has a warn overdrive unit. It dose not run. Previous owner said engine needs work.”

1945 MB Thomasville, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

(08/22/2012) This runs and drives, but has extreme makeover body steps!

This is a 1945 Willys MB Jeep.  Its your chance to own a rare piece of WWII history at a cheap price.  I have set the RESERVE LOW. 

The jeep has been tagged in GA but there is no Title. GA will not issue title for a vehicle this old.  Purchaser will get bill of sale and copy of my registration and your state will do what ever they do, some will issue title and not sure about others.

Here is what I know!  The jeep is in ok shape for it being 68 years old.  It runs and drives which is good compared to most.  I found this in a barn and the previous owner did not know it was a WWII jeep.  This is what I did to it to get it running and driveable a couple years ago.  Distributor, plug wires,clutch, master cyclinder, front & rear wheel cyc, brake lines, plugs.  This jeep still turns heads of anyone driving by in its condition.

 Now, Jeep is missing some of its original parts, but it still has some on there.  It does not have a gas tank, I have a temperary one in the back now so I can run it.  The seat are not the correct MB seats, & the windshield is from a later model willys(no glass). As you can see in the pics some one has put some sheet metal over the rear fender tool boxes- im sure to cover the small rust holes in there.  Also they put it on the side steps. It can easily be removed by someone who can do meatl work- I cant!  I never had a chance to go thru the transmission. It will stick in third gear every now and then but has never affected me driving up & down road.  data plate on dash are missing, but frame tag is intack.
