1942/43 GPW De Soto, MO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

The seller indicates this is in bad shape and it sure looks that way.  The seller says no phone calls unless serious, but doesn’t list a phone number.

“I have a Ford GPW project jeep for sale, I am trying to decide whether or not I want to keep it for a future project or just sell it now. This is not a fire sale, but if someone wants the stuff they can buy it, but I am not giving it away.

I have the entire jeep, 1942 # GPW 46940, it is in fairly bad shape, but could be restored. No hood, and the grill has been cut on and will need replaced, the dash has been cut, and someone cut a tailgate in it. Red in color now. No side handles. Windshield frame is good, inner windshield frame needs repaired or replaced. Has good WWII Trico vacuum wiper motors that are still attached. No seat frames. No combat rims, no top bow brackets, etc. Front frame horns need replaced as a custom bumper has been welded on, rear bumper is also custom.

Floor pans in front are not too bad, rear has holes, half of the hat channels are surprisingly good. Rear storage boxes have small holes in them.

NO TITLE or Data Plates.

I also have a WWII Ford GPW Jeep Engine for sale. It is GPW 114579, It does not have a GPW cylinder head, but instead comes with an early Willys unit with no “Jeep” or “Willys” cast into it. The piston, rods, and crank are still in it. Had been bored .030 over and .010 under on the crank, and will need to be bored again or probably sleeved due to rust on the cylinder walls. No obvious cracks anywhere, the area under the distributor looks good.

The engine is just a short-block, no intake, exhaust, or any accessories, just the block, crank, rods and pistons, timing chain and cover, and camshaft.

I also have a GPW marked T-84 trans that will need rebuilt, and a GPW marked transfer case with correct parking brake mechanism for sale as well. I will take $500 for the pair of them.

I will take $700 for the jeep.
$500 for the engine
$500 trans and transfer case

If you want the whole thing, engine, transmission, transfer case, and the jeep, I will sell it all for $1200.”
