1949? CJ-2A? Salt Lake City, UT **SOLD**


UPDATE: Was $3000 **SOLD**

I have an amazing little Willys Jeep for sale.
It belonged to my father and we converted it to 12 V and I drove it for a summer. Then it went into storage for about 15 years. It was in a covered garage. It will not start at this time but I believe it will run again with minimal work. I replaced the front shocks and I put a new tow-bar on it. It needs new springs – it’s a little crooked. I have planned to fix it and drive it for 3 years now but I have finally come to the realization that I don’t have time and it will not happen. It is currently in my moms garage and she wants the space back so it’s time to pass it on to someone else….
Please e-mail me with any questions and I will answer them to the best of my knowledge.
Here are a few photos, I can also e-mail you more.

1945 MB Las Vegas, NV **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** … Was listed at $12,495.

There are some minor issues that keep this from being a completed restoration, but this looks solid.

“1945 WWII Willys Jeep (MB) with .50 Cal Machine Gun

This is an authentic WWII U.S. Army 1945 Willys Jeep (MB) with a real M2 .50 Cal. ‘Ma Duce’ (non-firing) Machine Gun, both in great condition.


The .50 Cal MG has all original gun parts except the left and right side panels. The gun can be made to fire propane but can NOT be made to fire live ammunition and therefore does not require any special permits.

The charging handle operates perfectly just like an original gun and will cycle ammunition. A belt of display ammo is included as is a WW2 .50 ammo box.

The mount is also an authentic military MG mount and is NOT a repop or home built mount.

Included is an authentic military canvas gun cover, NOT homemade or a repop and a .50 Cal Gun Crate built from original military specs to carry and store the gun when on the Jeep.
Please note that the gun will be sold with the Jeep and will NOT be sold separately under any circumstances or offers.


The Jeep runs like a champ and starts up every time.

The vehicle was restored by me a few years ago and has been used in a movie, TV program, parades and car shows.

The engine is war time engine with the correct T-84 transmission. It’s been converted to a 12 volt system but contains many 6 volt parts for appearances purposes.
Engine compartment contains all accurate parts as would appear on a 45 Willys such as fuel filter, fuel pump, air cleaner, oil can, horn, regulator box, lube chart and grease gun.

The ‘tub’, is also an original war time tub and is in great condition (NOT a repop). The frame is in good condition but has been repaired. A rebuilt war-time frame, primed and ready to install is available but is NOT included in the sale.

All US stars and markings are exact and accurate to 1945 WW2 Jeep of the ETO.

Canvas top, seats, windshield cover are all brand new from Beachwood Canvas.
Includes five original WW2 combat rims (not repop).

The Jeep is all there as it stands and does not need anything to make road and car show ready, but for those who would like to tinker on it there are few minor items that could be finished off.

The Jeep is currently registered and insured here in Nevada with a clear Nevada title. Out of state buyers are responsible for pickup, but transportation is available to some locations at an additional cost. Payment is to be in cash or certified bank check that would be cashed on delivery before the title is signed over.
No out of state or country ‘check scammers’ will even be considered.

Asking price for the Jeep with the gun as it stands is $12,500.00”

1941? MB Culebra, Tx $800


There’s some value here.

“I Have a 1941 willys MB
-T 84 transmission
-dana 18 transfer case
-Dana 25 front axle
-Dana 27 rear axle

The previous owners put a v8 and cherry bomb exhaust in it and ran it like that. The motor is junk. The body needs work but Kaiserwillys . com sells new body panels and full tubs for what you want to replace. This would be a full restore but when completed a 1942 MB goes for about $22,000 on average as most that hit the streets in the US were battle damaged. This is a WWII military piece of history and I cannot bring myself to junk it. BUT I could sell the frame, transmission, transfer case and axles and scrap the rest and make $800, I just don’t have the time to put into the restore while working 60-70 hours a week. I was going to put a 1.6l VW diesel engine in it and run it around town… I have that for sale as well for a additional cost(Incomplete engine). call/text 210-551-9739 (more likely to get a reply from text/email as i don’t tend to answer random phone numbers.)”
