My M42 Willys MB


Recommended Posts

I spent four years restoring this jeep, finaly got it working well and got to drive it around a few days ago. I'm unsure about the markings (mainly after the 506 if it should be an I or PI) on the front bumper, they may not be correct. if anyone knows the propper markings and could help me out that would be greatly appreacated.

Hi Tom and Lloyd

 

Hey Lloyd,

not sure if I qualify, years ago I owned and restored MB102964, traded it for a 42WLA

Tom Bowers

 

Sorry, Tom, you and I would have to form a '41 club instead. thumbsup.gif

 

Yours was probably delivered mid Dec 41, missing Pearl Harbor by a couple of days.

 

This is mine, slightly earlier than yours, MB102519.

Great looking jeep. I hate to hear what the cost was. I have a ton of money rapped up in mine.

i would love a jeep, yours looks great nice job, not too keen on the 101st markings though, i would paint mine with some random unit markings then slap some paint over it and add New Zealand markings, just like our boys used to, its only stolen if you get caught :)
