1945 GPW Costa Mesa, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $16,500.

Owned by the same family since 1946.

“Super original WW2 US Army Jeep that has been owned by the same family since released from the government in 1946. The original owner used it on his ranch, after he passed away it was stored for the past 25 years in the garage. Fresh out of retirement, the engine has been rebuilt along with a new wiring harness, rebuilt radiator, completely rebuilt braking system, new exhaust system, new gas tank, new battery, new clutch, front seat cushions, new Firestone military tires and tubes with the original combat wheels. The transmission functions well and shifts very smoothly. I don’t think it would be possible to find a more original and well running and driving Jeep.”

    Looks good! I see it has the “short-throw” transmission and “quick-change” transfer case lever pin access hole. Probably a “field mod”. : )

    Engine area looks great; and they kept the originality/patina of the exterior :-).
    This is very nice… but I recommend installing/replacing the missing windscreen hold-downs.

    Electrical system 12 volt, not 6-volt military type, as evidenced by the small voltage regulator, battery. Passenger side front frame rail looks like it has a tear on the top. Looks to be cleaned up slightly for a quick sale. A bit high on the price for what I see.
