UPDATE: Bidding reached a max of $23,100, but didn’t clear the reserve, so it didn’t sell.
Matching numbers and 99% rust free. Should fetch a good price.
“Now this is my second jeep that I’m selling. You are bidding only on the jeep, the trailer is already sold. As you probably already know, this is the jeep that ford built to go against the Bantam BRC and the Willys MA. This is a second series GP. This jeep is in excellent condition as far as rust is concerned. All panels are 100% original. It appears that the jeep might have been rebuilt by the government due to the two different layers of green of OD green paint and blue drab numbers. Like the GPW in my other auction! I bought it from the family member who inherited the jeep from his great uncle. According to some writing under the hood, the jeep was first sold in 1959. I don’t want to say 100% but I would settle for 99% rust free as a way to describe the body and frame. She is in great running condition. Just like the GPW it is matching numbers, original tags, engine and frame match. The tool boxes are 100% solid with no pitting or cancer. All the rare parts are there with the exception of the carb which I purchased and will offer to the winner of the auction at an additional cost. Front seats are original but will need repairs as the previous owner did a poor job. You will probably not find another jeep in this condition in our life time. Remember this is unrestored and solid and requires no restoration. It would be an injustice to restore this jeep. This jeep is for the collectors out there like me who prefer the all original vehicle that requires no restoration. As with all jeeps that I sell I recommend that interested parties come see the jeep in person to come up with their own conclusion as to condition and originality. Don’t let this one get away. If you have a slat grill in similar condition I would consider a partial trade. If you have a schwimmwagen, I would consider tradin up.”
