1945 MB Franktown, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

” i am listing my 1945 willys mb. this is really a very straight mostly original ww2 army jeep. this is a june 1945 willys mb serial number 450667 as the last mb serial number was 459851. almost one of the last ones. what is missing– seats, and top bows, other small stuff. what is pretty rare- all of the ww2 gauges except temp, body handles, pintle hitch, tail lights, ww2 engine(gpw 5077) t84 transmission, gas tank, rifle rack mounts, 1st aid bracket, blackout light, cat eyes, rotary light switch, voltage regulator still on fender, original air cleaner, all data plates- shipping plate, and even the original willys frame tag! i have a clear colorado title in my name also. just alot of good ww2 items still on it, not bubbafied like 90% of them. this is one of the last ones with out firewall fuel filter-no holes drilled either. i have the spare gas holder for it, and 2 bolt spare tire carrier, and spare tire support. the engine is still full of oil, and radiator holding nice green anti freeze. the motor is stuck from sitting, as is transmission. transfer case goes in and out. previous owner said he was driving it 3 years ago, then left it sit, as he was repairing the tank, which i found a correct wide mouth tank for it. the front floors are probably the worst part, but really minor rust compared to most. rear floor is very nice, as is the body. i had a 6 volt battery, and the cat eyes came on on the rotary. what is nice is the front frame horns–not been welded on or cut up!! the jeep was ww2 od, then looks like it was a korean war darker green, then air force blue. then someone did the white, and black deal on it. this should really be a nice easy project, as its mostly all there, with a good rare early ford gpw block (good trading material) has the late war mb head still. carb is a later model.”

1944 MB Phoenicia, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This is unrestored and the engine has been rebuilt.

“For your consideration, a very nice “barn find” 44’ Willys MB Jeep.. Serial #325384. This jeep is in very nice original condition, and has never been restored. Looks like it was painted green a few times with a brush.

Frame is in almost perfect condition, with no major rust issues whatsoever. It appears to still have the original front bumper and gussets.

The body shows its age with small dings and dents, but no major damage. The front floors are the only area of concern on the vehicle, as they have been covered with tin. Inspection underneath reveals only minor rusting on the drivers side, and hat channel rusting on the passenger’s side. There is lots of structurally sound metal left for repairs. Overall, the body is very restorable, and possesses a lot of character. Hood, fenders, and windshield are in good condition with no major rust thru. Seat cushions are replacement units, but mount exactly as the originals. Frames are in nice shape.

The drivetrain on this Jeep is in great condition. Engine was completely rebuilt (have receipts) about 200 miles ago to the tune of $2900. Engine appears to be original to the jeep with serial #MB-369110. 6v system is intact, and functional. T84 Transmission and axles are the original units gone thru and in good condition.”

Andy’s got this Navy jeep for sale.

“For your consideration, an nice 43′ Willys Navy Mb Jeep. Great start for a restoration. Frame and glovebox – Serial # 206293, 1-28-43 DOD. Excellent condition frame, requires only a couple of upper gussets and rear crossmember to be perfect. Never been plowed with.

Engine is a later model replacement, but still has most of all the rare acessories on it. Appears to be a Navy jeep as there is grey paint is visible on the oil filter, and oil filler tube. The underhood wind deflector also is grey, as are other areas on the underbody and frame.

Front floors and passenger step need work, but the rest of the body is nice,. Been in indoor storage for the last 30 years.

1942 MB Shirley, MA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000.

Runs, but needs brakes fixed.  No title.

“I’ve got a 1942/43 willy’s mb jeep. It’s got a 1942 “wilson foundry” gpw engine built in late 1942. These engines are worth at least $1500 on there own. The body number is early 1943. After researching things, alot of jeeps built in 42 were put together with whatever parts they had around. They’re called “salad” jeeps as they just tossed them together. The jeep does not have a title, just a bill of sale which is what it will be sold with. Engine runs great, and clutch, transmission, transfer case and such work good. It needs brake work.(master cylinder and wheel cylinders) to be driveable. It’s a really cool jeep, and a neat piece of history. Wish I had the time and money to complete this project, but I don’t so on to someone who can. E-mail me with any questions. Thanks, Mark”
