1945 MB Mill Valley, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $9000

(05/06/2012) “I have a 1945 Jeep MB for sale. It has everything right with it and it has everything wrong with it. By that I mean that most components show wear, but they are all there in the original form. Most are the original to the Jeep. The engine, frame, body, and trans #’s match and most other components are the original that came with the vehicle, even the horn. Its got a little rust in the common areas, but the body is the one that came from the factory. Of course there are replacement parts but they are high quality reproductions. The tires are virtually new NDT (~100 miles) and the wheels are split rims. The jeep is not “modified” or “modernized”. It is a good example of an original vehicle, perfect for someone who wants to just drive it or totally restore it.
If you are interested, I can send some photos. Price $ 9000.+ depending on response to ad.
Thank you,
Alex”

This looks good.

“For sale is an original 1942 military Willy’s Jeep – see scanned documents

– A little history – This was a Naval Jeep stationed in Rhode Island and was sold to the Town of Warren Rhode Island on October 15th 1953. It was then sold to the first civilian owner. This jeep was purchased from this owner’s family in 2002. Please see the attached original documents of these transactions.

This Jeep was thoroughly restored from the frame up by Russell’s Military Vehicles of Cairo, Georgia, USA, a member of the MVPA. The electrical system has been converted to 12 volt. The Jeep starts and runs great! All of the gears work, and it shifts easily. This jeep is in great condition for driving around or just looking at!”

This classic war jeep was rebuilt from the frame up in both Texas and at the highly respected Northland Diesel in Bellingham, Washington. The engine was worked from the crankshaft up, and the transmission, transfer case, and differentials were likewise inspected and rebuilt as required. Items include a new wiring harness, tires on combat wheels, rebuilt carburetor, new seats and paint. In fact every item put back into service with this classic vehicle has been inspected and brought to standard. The owner’s intention was to have this vehicle look and perform like the day it was issued back in 1944. Receipts are available.

This vehicle has well over $28,000.00 invested in purchase and restoration, and is truly a showroom classic.

Also available and reasonably priced are an all-weather top, sides, and rigid doors from Beachwood Canvas (new @ $1350.00in original box), a set of five new road wheels on combat rims (cost new $1370.00) and other original equipment.”

1941? Flattie Pacific Beach, Ca $4800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

The fact that this body has a drain hole by the step, but no gas inlet is a little puzzling.  It has full floaters in the rear, but also has a tail gate.  The windshield is CJ-2A. The hood and fenders are civilian, while the grille is ww2.  This appears to be a mutt of a jeep to me.

“1941 Jeep Willys… The world war two 4×4 original ! Engine was rebuilt less than 500 miles ago and have documentation for rebuild…
It is a very cool ride to have. Had it sitting for a few years in storage( inside)
It has an electric fuel pump but still has all original equipment too.
Runs good and needs to be registered if you plan on driving on the street…
It has the original Tire setup also….. a true piece of history you can drive and show off.
Paint is worn a bit but virtually no rust….
Ive posted pics for you to see, havent even washed it ! lol It has a TOW bar so you can pull behind RV or Truck…
Needs a battery and thats all !
Only serious buyers ! no Low-ballers….. remember, this is a piece of American History”

Jim forwarded me the following images he took of the MBs at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Az.

Jim writes, “The 390th Bomb Group Museum has a B-17 flying fortress on display, a long with a MB that has been restored and donated to the museum. It needs a fuel tank flush, new radiator hoses, and I bet a carb rebuild. I hope to assist them on this the next time I make it home. There is also a MB on display in another hanger that is part of a display dedicated to the Red Tails fighter group. I am sending a few pics of them. They have one of the largest aircraft display’s around!”

Year? MB/GPW Lane County, Or $1000

Someone this jeep got listed in the memorabilia section of eBay rather than in the auto section … Only 12 hours left as of this post.  Might be able to get a deal if the reserve is low.

“hello, this is my 1944 fully restored jeep willys, it is frame off, engine was taken apart, transmission was taken apart, every piece was taken , it was all restored piece by piece then put back together, it looks just the way it did when it came off the line and sent to the war back in 1944, it comes with a replica m1 grande and full leather holster, this is museum quality and one of the nicest you will ever see, ready to take to the shows and win trophys, there was over 32 thousand dollars spent on this jeep, and that does not include the hundreds of man hours, this has been my baby for awhile now, was never taken outside but for a few times and driven around the parking lot, the camera flash makes it look lighter in color!!”

1942 MB Slat Grille w/ No Glove Box De Pere, Wi eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

This has a variety of patches.

“Vintage Willys MB slat grill. Clear 1942 WI Title although can’t verify Vin# because data plates are missing. No glove box, early hubs indicate an early jeep. condition – needs almost everything. I put in new brakes and master cyl some years ago. Still good. Have not fired it up in several years, but it was a smoker. Trans and transfer case worked. Actual milage unknown. the body is poor – many, many patches. Jerry can rigged as gas tank. Includes one combat rim but not correct for a slat grill. Needs complete restoration. Must have had several plow arrangements over the years judging by the front frame horns. I would have parted it out years ago but it is a unique piece of American history and should be preserved as such. It can be resurrected, but not for the faint of heart.”
