1942 Willys MB Barn Find Survivor

After looking for 30 years I have finally found a barn find Jeep.  The Jeep was used in service in Europe and was originally sold as surplus and shipped from Europe to the United States.  It was sold to a man in Pennsylvania who then resold it to another fellow from Pennsylvania who had it ever since.  It has not been registered 1963.  This MB has its original markings including the invasion star.  The Jeep was named "Stumpy" which can be seen faintly in the second to last picture.  This Jeep has seen very little civilianization except for the addition of turn signals.  The windshield frame has the bar on top to raise the top for more headroom.  This field modification has been seen in many wartime photos.

This is not the one of the usual Stateside Jeeps that we are used to seeing.  It is a true, seen action, European theatre Jeep.  The body has no rust whatsoever, though it does have the dings and dents typical of a Jeep that was used on service.  It is not currently running, but we are working on that.

I will be adding more pictures to this as I get some of the paint off and we can more clearly see the markings.

Sorry, but this is not for sale.  I have waited too long for one of these.
