(10/21/2014) It’s rough.

“1944 Willy’s MB Jeep 4×4 with the original 4cyl flat head motor and straight drive transmission. It is a complete jeep and did run and drive when we parked it just hasn’t been started in quite a few years. Military base jeep with the original flat head motor. It is not locked up and the gears shift as they should. Everything worked and was a fun jeep to drive. We have misplaced the title but it will be sold with a Bill of Sale. It use to be a batteries jeep and is a true piece of Americana. It has a roll bar and a really solid body for the year! It would be Great for someone to restore or even use as yard art if you so choose. ”

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Seller has priced this jeep at an unusually high price. This reflects the fact that the jeep was given to Eisenhower by the people of Scotland. Certainly it makes this jeep an unusual historical vehicle.

THIS WAS BY WAY OF THANKS FROM THE PEOPLE OF SCOTLAND FOR HIS HELP AND SUPPORT DURING WORLD WAR TWO.

I HAVE FULL PROVENANCE WITH THIS JEEP BY WAY OF LETTERS FROM THE GENERAL AND HIS AID AND ALSO FROM THE NATIONAL TRUST OF SCOTLAND WHO BOUGHT THE JEEP FOR HIM . I HAVE A FILE FULL OF PAPERWORK AND PHOTOS TO SUBSTANTIATE THESE FACTS.

1942 MB Slat Grille Denver, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500.

Runs and drives.

VIN# 113422
USA # 2046114 S

The first 25,808 Willys MBs used a welded steel grille very similar to the Ford GP design, and there were a host of other differences from the later Willys. These early MBs had “Willys” embossed in the back panel. In production, the slat-grilles were given running changes until they finally evolved into the standard stamped-grille MB we know and love. Around 200 slat-grilles are estimated to survive today.

I have restored 5 combat wheels with new NDT tires
-2 gallons of correct olive drab green
-complete NEW seat canvas
-stencil kit with correct USA #
-Runs and Drives great!

This jeep has been in our family and stored inside since the 50’s.
My Grandfather was a POW in WWII”
