Jeep Collection for sale out of Colorado

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, CJ-3B, CJ5, GPW (Ford MB), MB

willys_collectionUPDATE:  This was $85,000 for the whole collection. I have found some related craigslist ads.  See them below.

I’ve found a couple references to the sale of this collection.  Anyone know more? Based on the pic to the right, these don’t appear in great condition.  My guess is that this is over priced.

Here is a link to another reference at Hemmings, where I found the pic to the right.

Here’s a link to Hemmings that readsWILLYS: elderly WW II veteran has vintage Jeep collection, 40s-60s, both military and civilian, must sell, best offer.”

1943 MB Wenatchee, Wa $5200

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

1943_mb_wenatcheeThe paint job on this is pretty unusual.  It looks like a tile mosaic.  The top is in poor condition.

“Body, running equipment, and engine all excellent. Interior and top need work. Has a tow bar to pull it with and you will need a light bar for rear if going very far. If you want to drive it away bring top post battery.”

1942 MB Chico, Ca $2250

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $2250

This ad includes links to a variety of upclose images.  I think it gives a pretty honest look at the vehicle (wish all ads were this good).

“1942 Willy’s Jeep (flat fender) with Chevy 350 engine, new Borg Warner T150 transmission, Advanced adapter plate to engine/bell housing, transfer case bearings new, new battery & Quadrajet carburator, fuel filter & line. The engine has double hump 2.02″ heads and I was told it was out of a ‘70’s Corvette. The tires have a ton of tread on them and look like they’re very new. The motor turns over easily and idles just like a V8 should. This Jeep is setup well with Saginaw power steering, line locker parking brake and 2 jerry can 5 gallon fuel can holders. Since it’s a Military Jeep, it’s also got the shovel storage on the driver’s side.”

Builds — 1945 MB Navy/Shore Patrol Resto from Argentina

• CATEGORIES: Builds, International, MB, Website

willys_argentina_logoI’m assuming this is a 1945 MB based on the title of the forum.  I found these pics from a spanish website I stumbled across called Willys Argentina.  I thought they had a pretty cool logo, so I’ve included a copy of that.  There’s plenty more pics and information about Flatties.

Here’s some 1945 MB pics I’ve linked to from the website.  You can see more pics on this forum page.

Jeep42.net Website — Some Great Pics

• CATEGORIES: International, MB, Website

I believe the author of this bilingual (french/spanish) site (jeep42.net) about a 1942 MB is from Europe, though I didn’t get a sense of exactly where they were located.  Neither my French nor my Spanish will save me in an emergency, let alone let me navigate a site about jeeps.

Fortunately, the excellent pictures make the site worth visiting even for the most linguistically challenged of us.  I especially liked the pic below (there are other pics that provide similar comprehensive views of parts).  If anyone knows who operates the site, I’d gladly add their name here so i can properly credit them.

1942 GPW/MB Spokane, Wa $7000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

1942_mb_spokaneI’m really not sure if this is a GPW or an MB.  The writing left me confused.  It looks nice.  I think extending that bottom indent across the bottom of the body is an unusual feature (no doubt, part of a body fix). It appears well put together.

“a very FAST 1942 ford jeep , correct a MB1 WWII flat fendered hard to find fast 4×4 for mud bogging trpohies buy this one , 350 chev crate motor ( fender well headers )with only 12,000 miles on it , backed with SUPER T-10 4 SPD also fresh , custom work and a full cage and full canvas with doors , the chassie has lots of upgrades to brakes and hd drive lines n more , am listing for RAY , a friend sooo no need to email me , ya gott a call him spk # 509-484-2265 please no late pm calls , a titled and tabbed FAST tr0phie winner 4 sure”

Based on the pics from craigslist and eBay, this is an MB body and grille.  I would hazard a guess that the rest of this is an MB as well.
