“Willys MB 1943 VIN number 214545 model NOM – 12 is a real WW2 veteran. This jeep is a unique model produced in a short series of 1,512 units for the special order of Marine Corps. Most of them took part in the war in Pacific; few returned to USA. Today several dozen are registered, but they vary in condition and the resemblance to the original. These jeeps have had body alterations originally, like special waterproof electrical installations or two high-frequency radios for communication purposes. Continue reading

1945 MB? Enterprise, OR $3000


It’s got mods and will need some work.


“After the windshield frame was smashed and the gas tank was removed this jeep was parked near a barn for 15 years. It was forgotten about and I believe deserves to be saved, so i brought it home. I chopped the wind shield down to a wind deflector and turned a beer keg from our local pub into the gas tank. After also adding a new battery, it started right up. After bleeding the breaks it also stops. Tail lights and blinkers work although the head lights are not working at this time. If I get a chance I will get them to work.

The tires are worn out but holding air. It runs well, stops ok, starts ok, but needs to be trailered. There is rust and bondo and at least 2 layers of paint over the military olive drab that is starting to show through. This jeep has the original engine with the overhead valve F head, transmission, military blackout lights, axles, spring over lift kit. Steering box, steering column, and shocks have been upgraded.”

No turn pistons on at the moment but the lines are there to install. Plowed twice with Jeep. It’s a beast. Took in trade. The guy I traded with said he noticed a clicking noise in front end. Removed cover and said one tooth missing from ring gear. I haven’t been into it to see what is going on. I plowed with it in 4×4 and it was fine. Needs 4 glow plugs installed which I have. It’s a diesel. Motor is a 4 cylinder Ford Has a roll cage. Cool rig for a camp or farm. Well built. Firm on price. Thanks for looking. Runs excellent. Has small fuel leak on very top of injector pump. O-ring on top shaft. Easy fix for someone who is mechanical. I have a plow truck. Just don’t need this. Come check it out.4 new tires. Will consider a trade for a decent quad with plow”

1942 Slat Grille MB Salt Lake City, UT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE II: This sold on eBay for $20,300.

UPDATE: I thought this had sold on eBay 09/2020. On the ebay ad the extra plate could be seen. It is a remanufactured jeep, completed by the Moore Corporation (data plate on dash).

The seller of this jeep, which as been stored for 50 years, claims this is all original. But, this Willys MB had GPW tool lids. It also has a small plate, probably a reconditioning plate, above the standard data plates. I wish there was a close-up pic of the dash.

Year? MB? Redding, CA $2499


No title. Unsure how much value is here. It does have a set of Watson hubs.


“1947? Willys Jeep. No engine and comes with some extra parts. It has not been registered in decades, and the title is missing. I was told it is a 43, but I’m not a jeep expert and several people have told me it is 46 up. I don’t know how to confirm this. Your guess is likely better than mine. It could be fun for someone who has more time than I but it’s a project I can’t find the time to dig into.”

1942 MB Carlinville, IL $17,500


Mark posted this MB to warjeeps.com.



“It is an accurate representation jeep for what one would have looked like in WWII. A serviceable jeep, in a sense. All WWII, but not an all matching jeep.

It has an MB TUB, with a GPW frame. It is not by any means perfect, but would be a great ‘driver jeep’ and is mechanically near perfect.

Problems would be…

-Slight Rust on frame (can show pictures)… Around a foot strip that would use repair
-One blackout light needs replaced
-Windshield fold out needs fixed

Besides that it is a very nice jeep.

Please email me for more pictures & I will get them sent your way.

I can work with you on shipping anywhere in the lower 48 US states.”

1944 MB w/ Trailer Eugene, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $20,000.

This has a pair of early Husky hubs.





“1944 Willys MB with ¼ ton trailer. Sold as a set only.
Excellent condition, been garaged.
Serial # MB 340573
DOD: First week of June 1944
Clear Oregon title for both trailer and jeep.

Vehicle was purchased from a friend of mine in about 2002. I have records of its ownership back to the early 70’s and some correspondence back to the early 60’s. Between 2002 and 2003 the body and frame were separated, engine, transmission and transfer case removed. Frame and tub were sandblasted, primed and painted. There was some minor rust repair done, and the fuel tank well and the fuel tank were replaced due to corrosion. Front frame bumper brackets were replaced as well as the front bumper. Top frame and brackets are replacements.

The wiring harness was replaced with a period copy. The tires are aftermarket replacements, and the combat wheels were purchased as second hand items, sandblasted and painted. Seat covers are aftermarket copies. To the best of my knowledge the rest is original, save some fasteners and other small components. The goal from the beginning was to repair the major issues and re-paint to original military color leaving as much untouched as possible.
