1942 MB Walla Walla, Wa $1500

• CATEGORIES: MB

1942_mb_wallawallaUPDATE:  Price dropped to $1500

(06/08/09) This is an MB mixed with an 80’s Toyota of some type?

“1942 Willys with Toyota running gear (Engine a 22R, 4 speed manual tranny, tranfer case and axles are all out of an ealry 80’s Toyota). Tires are 38 inch Gumbo Monster Mudders Radials, siped with 60-70% tread left. This rig is open front and rear with stock gears and keeps up with fully locked, re-geared rigs. It is a pure mountain machine, its light, very flexy and extremely capable in mud and snow. I would consider selling the jeep for less without the tires but will not sell the tires without the jeep.”

Builds: Boomer’s 1942 Slat Grille

• CATEGORIES: Builds, MB • TAGS: .

If  you weren’t following it, Boomer, James and I were have a short conversation about Slat Grilles and how there are only a few Slat Grilles buit with a Glove Box.  Apparently, early MBs (1941 dated slat grill) did not come with a glove box (maybe I was the only person who didn’t know that …). Glove boxes were not added till ser# 120680 (early to mid Feb. 1942).  It made realize how little I actually know about Slat Grilles beyond the slat grille itself.

Boomer mentioned that he has a MB with the serial# 122723 born  February 26, 1942.   Glove boxes were added about a week before his was built.  Of course, at that point I said ‘tell me more & send me pics’!  Thanks for sharing!

Boomer not only sent some pics, but provided some nice history.  My slat came from the original owner, who bought it 1946. It was originally bought from an Army Air station in Maine.

Total slat grill production was approximately 25,000 units or  approximately 3  percent of total WW2 jeep production. Of those, only about 10 to 15 percent were equipped with a glove box. My research suggest there are barely 150 running/restored slat grills left in existance world wide.


Regarding the trailer, it was saved by me from a local farm. It was being used as a horse trough. Date of delivery was June 1943.  It was made by Willys, otherwise known as MBT.

This is how I found it;

This might not be a bad price if the body is in very good shape.

“Pictured below is a 1944 Willys MB Military Jeep. It has what I believe to be is the original T84 transmission and Spicer 18 transfer case. The engine is not the original L head. Someone has replaced the original engine with a Willys F head. The windshield frame is from a M38. Overall the vehicle is in pretty good shape for its age. It runs and drives really well.

The seller lists the good, bad and ugly about this jeep.  Visit the Ad to learn more.

“This 1944 Willys MB Jeep is a great project car. It ran for me throughout high-school (1995-1997), but it’s been garaged for the last decade and no longer starts. I just tried to get it going, and with a jump, it rolls over but likely needs a carb-kit/cleaning to get the fuel going. In 1944, they didn’t make them complex, just durable. Anyone with a week of evenings could likely get this running….”

1942 MB Brookings, Or eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE:  Seller has posted the jeep on eBay with many pics.

The seller would like to get at least $1700, but the reserve is $1300.  Based on the pics, this is definitely an MB that has been modified to look CJ-2Aish (grill modified and tailgate added).

“The jeep runs and drives. It has newer front and rear seats. The data plates are missing, on the glovebox. It also has a 6 point roll bar, and later model rims and tires. It has a unique one of a kind front grill. I have a tow bar that comes with it. Great for restoration or custom mod rock crawler. Oregon title in hand. Need to sell due to job loss.”

“For auction is this 1945 Willys MB, it runs and drives great. I acquired this jeep about 2 years ago from a gentleman in town who had it for years. I thought at the time I would do a thorough restoration, but unfortunately I have alot on my plate and no time  to invest in this task. Overall this jeep is in wonderful condition, engine is extremely strong as well as drive train, there are no rust issues to speak of, body is in super good shape, tires are basically new, seat cushions are new, also equipped with a PTO driven winch in working condition.To put it simply if you’re looking for a good, solid, very clean MB here you go. It’s not a text book restoration by any means however it represents itself extremely well and if so inclined you could finish to whatever degree.”
