1942 GPW Los Angeles, CA **Status Unknown** Was $9500.


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $9500.

It’s supposed to have the Willys frame.

“Runs and drives very well with original combat wheels and new tires. This is the rare model with a Willys frame. Here’s a chance to own a rare WWII combat vehicle used by the Army, Marines, Navy and US Air Force or Air Corps during the war.”

    Tombstone blackout drive bracket and the Ford script on the rear: nice! But those heater hoses are interesting. Was there a legit military heater option in WWII?

    ‘Legit’ might not be the right word. Better to take this in steps.

    Based on what I’ve seen, no MBs or GPWs came from Willys or Ford with heaters. However, there may have been some motor pools who modified some jeeps for cold weather (I have no specific examples). In my book that would make heaters ‘legit’ if you want to restore a jeep to field specs.

    There was a hand crank heater designed by Stewart Warner (and a similar one by the Ypsilanti Machine and Tool company) that was used to heat engines and batteries in cold weather. whether these heaters were designed during or post war isn’t something I’ve researched.
