1942 Slat Grille MB Mesa, CO **Sold**


UPDATE:  **Sold** Was $4000.

“I have an unrestored 1942 Military Early Flat grill Willy’s (MB) for sale. The first 25,000 MB’s had these flat steel grills. It wears a cosmetic restoration with many decent parts on the jeep and is a nice 25 footer, but is not a restored vehicle. Good original 1942 MB restorable body. Will need correct floors and other items to make a fully functional original World War Two MB. It is complete, the engine is free and looks like making it run should be not a major effort, I bought it to swap out the GPW Ford parts on it, for my GPW. I did replace with 1942 Willy’s MB parts where needed. I will provide a notarized “bill of sale”, I bought last fall and do not intend on restoring this vehicle, I have my hands full with my other jeeps and my small ranch. It is as restorable jeep, but does need TLC. I am currently eliminating many of my project cars I will never finish. I have other vehicles for sale. These are current just taken pictures, please ignore that date on the pictures.”

1943 MB York, PA **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown.

I think the top is my favorite part, though it is showing its age. The seat covers are unique, too.

“Selling this for my father since he is no longer able to drive. This was purchased from the military (Letterkenny Army Depot) in the late 1940s. It has 53,000 ORIGINAL MILES. Has now been started for 3-4 years. The photos were taken about 18 months ago. The tires are all flat but as far as the rest of the jeep goes, it pretty much looks like the photos. Call for more information and a history on the jeep.”
