“$5,500 w/o title $6,000 w/title, process would take approx 3-4 weeks to receive. I have already done the state police VIN inspection. Now a matter of sending in documents to the state, wait, then take that info to license branch and wait again. I would need a nonrefundable down payment before proceeding. Logistics: You may pick up the Jeep, or arrange transport and I will load onto a trailer with forklift.

All the spare parts can fit inside the Jeep if necessary. Overview: This is a survivor worth saving. Matching numbers 4-21-42 Script Ford GPW. Engine, frame, and data tags all match. Body is in pretty good shape without much rust. Rolls and steers very easily. Frame is solid. Will need the bumpers/horns and machine gun piece replaced as they are bubba.

The previous had the engine machined then passed away. It will need machined, however there do not appear to be any cracks between water jackets/cylinders nor in the matching GPW head. -Matching numbers survivor -Original data tags -Decent body without much rust -Solid tool boxes and fuel tank area -GPW transfercase -Extra MB trans+tcase -Extra postwar engine complete -Lots of misc parts to go with I spent an hour looking for F-script parts, and found these below. I’m sure there are more but I haven’t looked at everything: Filter bracket Timing cover Bellhousing Dipstick Flywheel Front driveshaft Rear driveshaft Pedals Axe bracket Axe handle Driver headlight bucket”

    I thought the Military specified “jeeps” made for them couldn’t be branded? Guess I thought wrong.

    Chuck,

    Both Willys and Ford branded the early MBs and GPWs, respectively. The military eventually cracked down on that. If you hear someone refer to an MB as a SCRIPT MB body, that means it’s an early body with WILLYS. Same it true with a SCRIPT GPW body.

    You can see both examples under the Body or “Tub” section of this page: http://www.rensjeep.com/MBvsGPW.html
