1940s MB/CJ-2A San Luis Obispo, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

1940s_mb_sanluisobispoUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4700

I’m not sure what the model is.

We aren’t too sure of what exact year it is but we did find out that it could be in between the years of 41-51 body style. The engine we know was taken out of another jeep a little newer then the body. Its an F-head with the valve cover on top so it was taken out of a jeep from the years 53-63. We found that it’s very common for people to switch out the engines from that year because it’s better performance.   The jeep has very little rust and all of it is surface rust that we can find. It doesn’t have a transmission unfortunately or i would be driving it. i have a magazine that sells parts for jeeps and we found a transmission for it and it would only cost about 1500 dollars which isn’t bad for this old of a jeep. I would fix it up myself but i don’t have money and i really need a vehicle. Right now it’s an open title.”

1945 Militarized CJ-2A – Sanford, ME **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,500

“Newly restored ”cloned Willys MB. This is a 1945 CJ2A modified to look like a 1944 MB. It is 99% done. It needs a little touch-up on the paint and a rear seat. I spent Thousands of dollars on new parts. I have all records of purchased items. I put one size larger tires on it to increase fuel mileage and travel speed. It runs and drives like new. The engine is smoke free and I changed the voltage to a 12-volt system for better lighting and dependability. I also added turn signals and a second rear brake light for safety. I also added new style seat belts to make it a safer vehicle. The entire Willys has been sandblasted primed and painted with late WW11 319 OD. I spent many hours disguising the CJ2A look. I would like to keep all the bags and supply’s that are all over it. The Shovel, Axe, Jerry can, rope and spare tire will stay with it.I still need to install the battery hold down. The top and seats are brand new, they are thicker than originals to make the ride a bit smoother. I also have a new glove box to install to make the dash look like the MB. The drive train is the way I bought it, so I don’t know how many miles are on them, but it goes down the road smooth.( I love it). The only reason for selling it is, I recently found a real 1942 GPW that needs restoring. I put about 1500 miles on it these past few months with no problems. The odometer reads about 7,000 miles. This is a nice vehicle that will last a long time with some care. Please call with any questions or if you want more pictures …. I also have some CJ3A parts for sale: Fisher plow set-up, complete windshield with new gaskets, new wiper motors, tool box cover, heater unit, new front seat frames, and complete drive line”

• 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 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….”
