Found this nice November 1944 Mb. Mostly complete and very little rust present. has most of its original parts including the rifle holder. unfortunately Engine is civilian, although the accessories are military . Check out at the original lube chart!

Thanks Andy

Hi Andy,

Great find! I have two November 1944 Willys Jeeps myself. Would love to see your frame, body and tag numbers, as well as your axle dates!

Great find... It is always exciting to see a project vehicle with so many original parts... Especially the top bow brackets which are almost never left in place!
