1944 MB Phoenix, AZ **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was listed at $10,000. Included a body kit. Status Unknown

“It’s all there but the EM brake. Comes with new reproduction body, 5 original combat rims. I drove it into the shop, but has not run since. Good Jeep but needs someone with the time and energy to get it back on the road.

New seat canvas, canvas windshield cover and canvas top.
To clarify, the Jeep still has an original, but rough, body on it. I collected a lot of replacement parts off old scrapped bodies or NOS to repair the damaged and missing parts.
I converted the EL to 12 volts but I still have all the 6 volt stuff, including an original voltage regulator, generator and starter, that go with the Jeep. Also, I have 90% of the EM brake, I just never got it on the Jeep.

The Repo body can be seen in the back ground. It is a complete body kit of the late war style body.
If you are interested in just the Jeep as is with all the extra parts, $7,500 OBO.
If you are interested in just the body kit $2,500 OBO.”

1943 MB Elgin, IL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This was owned by a former POW of the Battle of the Bulge.

“This is a Willys WWII Jeep, It runs and drives and looks very good. It would be great for parade use or for a reinactor. It has the markings of my fathers unit 99th Division 924th Field Artillery. He was an EX – POW from the Battle of the Bulge,( he escaped 3 months later) and enjoyed riding in it. We have no room to store it now that he is gone and this house is sold. It needs to be maintained like anything else but does run and drive and stop well. It has had new wheel cylinders and a New started assembly. I do have the title that says 1941 Jeep MB. We know that it says the wrong year but we thought the next owner could have it corrected or leave it alone. It has a nice top that is like new just do not have any photos of it up. No cracks it the windshield. It has a winter insulator made of canvas on the hood. I was told it is unusual. The lights all work including the cats eyes Black out lights. The tires are old as is the seat canvas but I like the way it looks. You could restore it or drive it like it is”

Another Usual Jeep from the Big Island

• CATEGORIES: Features, MB • TAGS: , .

Bill from Lime Street Carriage spotted this jeep siting on the side of the road south of Kona in the Captain Cook area of the Big Island of Hawaii. This is similar to several other oddly shaped jeeps near Captain Cook, HI,  (here and here) that have been for sale. There was no for sale sign on the one below.

It sure seems likely that someone built all of these.

1944 MB White Salmon, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000

I’m unclear why the seller thinks this was in the Air Force. Looks like the driver’s side of the body has been patched and indents filled.

“this is a good old air force jeep mp this is a 1944 modle mb not a cj it was used for a guard jeep at an air force base so it had a machine gun mounted on it so the under carriage is built heavier than a Cj. ”

1944 Flattie Graham, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB, Racing

UPDATE: **Sold** Was priced at $1500.

Marty spotted this old racer with a f-head. It’s got the old mini-terras, the mismatched rims, patched body panels, and a hole in the hood (who needs a scoop for racing?). Looks like a fun little rig.

“I have a 1944 willys jeep for sale. It ran when parked but has been sitting for 2 yrs. It has an f head 4 cylinder and 4 speed with depend t case wich means you can select front, rear, and 4 wheel drive. The rear end is locked. It was an old race jeep and would take a bit of work to be street legal again. Would be a cool wheeler project. It does have windshield frame not in pic though.”

1946 CJ-2A/MB Skiatook, OK $3200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

This looks to be a CJ-2A column shift drivetrain topped with a MB/GPW body. I suspect the drain holes were added later. The front bumper is odd.

“1946 WILLYS CJ2A, VIN NO. CJ2A30868A, this is an early column shift, it has what appears to be a WWII composite body, a jeep guy told me that he thought they used left over WWII jeep body parts on very early CJs. It could be, as it has the CJ factory drain holes in the sides, the glove box opening shows no lid or box ever being installed, the rear tool boxes show no signs of ever having a lid installed. Maybe someone can verify that information.

The previous owner stated the engine was rebuilt, it starts quick, runs smooth and does not smoke and has 25-30 psi oil pressure.

Has been changed over to 12 volt electrics with alternator, windshield wiper, turn signals, stop lights, headlights, electric fuel pump.

Starts, drives and stops, new gas tank, 4 wheel drive works good, transmission works, but nosy in 1st and reverse and sometimes hard to shift (you can’t shift fast), second and third is quiet and shifts smooth, steering is tight and holds good running down the road, did not jump out of second, suspension is pretty quiet and it has like new tires that are balanced. Roll bar is bolted on, so removing would be easy. It has indoor carpet, but appears to have no rust through.

Just registered (has black sticker which means it has no liability ins.) and new correct title will be in this week.

It is ready to go play and not worry about messing up the rattle can paint job (so it would be one color, not several). The seats are after market, but easier to get in/out and have more belly room.”

1943 MB? West Springfield, VA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $8000.

(03/01/2013) This doesn’t run at the moment, but it could be a minor issue.

“I am looking to sell our 1943 WWII Army Jeep. Before we owned it, it belonged to my Grandfather. He was a Captain in the US Army during WWII, and in later years purchased the same year military jeep that he used during the war, and had it restored. It was in good running condition up until the time he passed away. We have owned it now for 5 years. It is not running at this time, but I believe that it is from sitting the past few years. It has been garage kept. We also have the original manuals for the jeep. This has been a very hard decision for us to make, so ONLY SERIOUS INQUIRIES will be considered.”
