1943 MBish Rehrersburg, Pa $4500

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available

“This willys is titled as a 1943. IT IS BY NO MEANS AN ORIGINAL MILITARY JEEP. Jeep is solid all the way around. Runs good, has no mechanical problems, except for small leak in the right header at the collector, has current inspection till 8/11, and a clear title. Engine is a 1967 odd-fire V6 (Dauntless V6) with a 4 barrel holley carb, has all aluminum heavy duty radiator, trans is a T86 newly rebuilt by a professional trans shop. Has a borg-warner All Range Overdrive unit. New clutch as of june 2010. rear is Dana 44 out of a CJ5 with 11 inch drum brakes, Front rear is a Dana 30 out of the same CJ5 with disc brakes and lock out hubs. The front is about 2 inches wider than the rear due to the disc brakes. You could run spacers in the back to even everything up, I chose not to, simply because I don’t care for them. Has new rancho leaf springs that provide a 1 inch lift. Tires are 33×12.50×15 Dunlop Mud Rovers with less than 1000 miles on them, on 15×10 wagon wheels. Willys also has power steering, heater, defroster and Sun Tach. The top on the willys is just the old top that I got when I bought it. I have sewn new window plastic in the drivers, passengers, and rear windows, due to the yellowing with age. I have more plastic that I will give along with the willys. (remind me of it) there is also a bikini top for the willys. Has racing seats with 5 point harnesses in the front, and a small bench seat with 4 point harnesses in the rear. The willys is by no means a speed demon, I do not recommend taking it on the interstate highways, but crusing around town up to 50 miles an hour it a great ride. Will Trade for running driving 67, or 68 mercury cougar”

MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History

• CATEGORIES: Features, Museums

The MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History in Little Rock, Ar, only exhibits one jeep (shown below), but they do have a variety of WWII Jeep photos in their archive, many of which include captions.  Here are 8 of them.  The photos are part of the Allison Collection of World War II Photographs, the captions of which come from the ACME wire service.

According to the Museum’s website, “James Allison, a sports writer working for the Houston Press, noticed that many photographs not printed in the daily newspaper were routinely discarded. He received permission to save these images, and by war’s end he had amassed a collection of more than 4,600 photographs. In August 1977, Allison donated his collection to the Arkansas Museum of Science and History”.

1952 Truck Walla Walla, Wa $1850

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

This looks like a nice truck.

“$1850 obo

1952 Willys Pickup Truck
Clear Title
Buick v6 Engine
Rebuilt Wagner Carb
manual trans
4×4 high low levers

New Uninstalled Parts:

Master cylinder
Windshield glass
Windshield weather stripping
Chrome hood emblem

This truck runs and drives but does not stop as it needs the included master cylinder installed. The paint job is a ten footer but looks good for a mountain rig. Front hood latches need to be mounted in order to latch the front of the hood down. Front drive shaft is not currently hooked up but is included (this is how he got it and he never desired to put it back in). Dash has been modified with different gauges and a radio. Wheels and tires are good. Currently running off of exterior gas tank (not included)

I would consider this a rat rod. I say this in that it could be legally on the road with a weekend’s work and could then be driven as is or you could continue to drive it as you work on it more. Please do not expect a rig that will win any shows for paint or one that will not need tinkering.

1954 M-38A1C Dayton, OH **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

It looks like there might be a little rust around the front edge of the fender.

“1954 Willys M38A1C Jeep for sale

The cutout in the windshield is for the barrel to stick out (the Jeep does not come with a gun or a gun mount).

This is a military Jeep with AROUND 45,000 original miles.

THIS VEHICLE DOES NOT HAVE A TITLE, SOLD WITH BILL OF SALE ONLY.

Body is in good shape with very little rust as you can see in the photos.

I bought it 4 or so years ago and got it running and frankly it didn’t run that bad but it does need a carborator rebuild.  We drove it around the field, parked it back in the garage and haven’t touched it since!

This Jeep has the original 24 volt system and has a place for 2 batteries just in front of the windshield.

I was going to restore it but I have enough other projects that I will never get to and it would be nice to have the room!

This vehicle has a lost title from the previous owner and is sold with a bill of sale only.

Let’s talk about the title for a minute… YES this vehicle has been titled to a private owner.

The lady that I purchased this vehicle from has promised me for the past several years that she would send me the title and never has, I have called her literally hundreds of times with no luck.

So the title is lost.

I have a rough looking Xerox copy of the title when it was owned by the Museum of the Great Planes but not the current title.

So really it is a lost title and it has been titled in private hands.

I have a Xerox copy of the title… The vehicle was sold to the City of Lawton OK for the Museum of the Great Planes April 12, 1977 from the US Government.  The vehicle was sold to the previous owner sometime in the early ’80s.  The vehicle was last tagged in 2003.  The owner died sometime around 2004 and the Jeep sat for a couple of years.  I purchased the vehicle from the Mother of the previous owner in July of 2006.

On one part of the title is says 1953 but that has been covered up and is typed as a 1954… so upon further investication here is what I found:

The VIN number is 77369, the unit # is 433 Manufactured by WIllys Motors Date November 1954 Contract # G2758-8358319.”

2 Dodge Command Cars Parlin, NJ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1700.

I always thought a Dodge Command Car would be a fun vehicle to own. I know nothing about them and they are probably as practical as Austin Champs, but they seem like they’d be fun projects.

“Offered for sale is a pair of WWII era dodge command cars…… I really do not know much about these things so I got a quick lesson and valuation from a local dodge guru…..

I am told both rigs are 1/2 ton 1941 wc-6’s.

The first rig is fairly complete with decent sheet metal and a frame with factory winch extensions on it. The motor turns over and most of the extraneous parts (fenders, windshield, winch, headlight buckets, etc.) are in the back of the bed. It has the original front seat frame. The dash on this truck has square gauge cutouts (the dodge guy told me this is an early dash but I cannot confirm that) and the data tag on the dash is intact.

The second rig is a rolling chassis (non-winch type) with a transfer case in it. This was intended as a donor rig for the first truck and the body is separated into panel sections and stacked on the frame.
The dash on this rig has round gauge cutouts.

These originally belonged to an older gentleman who had begun work on the first rig using the second as a donor. He passed several years ago and they sat until I ended up with them…..

There are no titles for these rigs — they will come with a notarized bill of sale only………

If anyone has any questions or would like to come look at them in person, please email me………The vehicles are located in Parlin, NJ……..

1956 CJ-5 & 1966 Bantam Trailer Eastern Oregon $8950

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, trailer • TAGS: .

This looks like a nice combo.  I think I’ve seen this jeep previously.

“For sale is a combo, restored 1956 Willys CJ-5 jeep and 1966 Bantam civilian 1/4 ton jeep trailer. They were both restored and painted to match just a few years ago, then stored in a building. The jeep has a metal half cab, heater, new upholstry, Ramsey 8,000 lb winch that has never had the cable spooled out, Warn over-drive, original 4 cylinder overhead that runs great, new front hubs, roll bar, small driving lights inside the grill, rack on the back for extra spare tire and handy-man jack and 5 gallon gas can (included). The trailer is a 1966 Bantam 1/4 ton civilain trailer (more rare than the military version), wood racks, spare tire, detachable tool box, and wired to match the jeep. PLUS, this also comes with a full set of mud and snow tires for BOTH the jeep and trailer, already mounted on a full set of spare wheels. I will not split the set up, this is a package deal. Compare the price of this set to a new “Rhino” at close to $11,000, and it makes this jeep and trailer look well worth the price. I have more money invested than the asking price of this jeep and trailer, with the restoration, extra tires and wheels… Clear Oregon titles. These pictures were taken about a week ago. I am also selling a 1960 CJ-5 in another listing. Thanks!”
