UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000

“1943-1947 ? Not real sure on the year but has the flathead 4 and the 3 speed. As far as i know the drive train is all original , the body is rough. The jeep runs and drives well. Have been using it for a hunting rig for years and it will go where you probably shouldn’t and will run for a long assed time on a tank of fuel. Has good rubberon all 4. Will make an excellent restoration donor or continue to use it for hunting.”

1945 MB Houston Heights, TX $2500

• CATEGORIES: MB

Rear seat not included.

“I have a 1945 ww2 jeep for sale. Yes.. This one IS a willys mb not the CJ2As that are painted green and mistaken for military.
I went through the trouble of getting a bonded title. All that is needed to get plates is insurance.
The motor runs, and I repacked the wheel bearings and replaced the brake shoes and shocks. I also installed a master cylinder and replaced all four wheel cylinders. The brakes could use some adjusting. It does have some rust through on the floor and sides. The transmission should probably be rebuilt. The gears grind a bit going in. There is no original gas tank so I’ve been using a boat tank. The rear seat shown in the pictures is not included. It is something I welded up with rebar, its not willys manufacture and is going on another project. This jeep would be perfect as the base for a restoration or it could be used as is on a dear lease. However I’d rather see it fixed up than left to rust on some land.
Call for more information.
Thanks for looking

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.”

(11/24/2012) If there is really a closet full of parts, this may be worth a look.

I have two tubs that I was going to use to make one but just don’t have the time. It is set up for 12 volt and I have all new gauges, and a new wiring harness. I have two extra fenders. It has a T90 tranny in it and I also have a T84 Tranny that is ready to re-assemble. I have all the parts plus a large closet of more original Jeep parts. Way too many to list. I even have the paint for it. It just need some work on the tub and reassembled.”
