    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    The original engine was gone. Someone swapped in a later F-134 Hurricane engine.

    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    Welp, unfortunately, the MB was much worse in person than it looked in photos. The frame and running gear were very crusty, the body was chock full of rot, it had been heavily civilianized, the wiring was hacked, and somebody cut the back off of the M-38 arctic top and installed a plexiglass...

    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    That sounds like a nicely butchered M38! I'll check the hat channels to see how bad they are. Good to know. Thanks! I did some looking on MB arctic tops and the photos I found on the interwebs look a lot like this one. That would be a good find. Yeah, LOL, it's a sweet hood. Nothing I...

    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    Thanks! Exactly what I was thinking! Thanks for the tip on the trans ID. I like the sounds of your CJ2A! [cough, cough] Forgot to share pics. Please forgive me! 😁 Like I said, they’re crappy. Here’s the best two:

    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    I have always loved Rick Pewe’s flatty. From the crappy pictures I’ve seen of this MB, it definitely has a good patina already. A VW TDI would be cool in a flatty too. Good to know on the 4.3L! If the frame is good, then I’ll see how low she’ll go on price.

    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    Thanks. I’ll give it a close inspection and let you know what I find. If it’s really bad, then I may just throw $500 at the seller and see what she says.

    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    Thanks! The photos in the ad aren’t much to go on, so I will inspect it in person today or tomorrow. I’m not sure if they swapped out the tranny when they changed the engine. I’ll check it in person because the seller inherited the jeep and really doesn’t know anything about it. Thanks! I’ll...

    Fair offer on a 1945 Willys MB

    Hey guys. I’m looking at a crusty, rusty, ugly 1945 MB. I mean, it’s hideous, but it’s a Willys MB! Someone has definitely done some mods to this truck over the years. Some of the obvious changes are a hard top/doors, turn signals on the fenders, multiple coats of paint, and a home built rear...
