1942 GPW Pagosa Springs, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** $5000. Now here.

Looks like a solid GPW with one major modification: the steering box. Though the steering looks unusual, on the plus side it’s got a thick (half-inch??) support plate coming off the frame; also, it seems to have held up well (given, I imagine, this was an older mod). An additional plus is that the builder didn’t cut the front cross member when updating the steering (or so it appears), so I imagine someone could restore the original steering if they wished relatively easily. I think it would make a good entry level GPW for the right person.

“1942 Ford WW2 GPW. New cooling system, ignition system, fuel system, electrical wiring front to back, seats, rear brakes, etc. Has an engine from a cj2a. The engine overheated at some point and cracked. Will need a new block. I’m reluctantly selling it. I’ve spent alot of money and time on this Jeep. It is the perfect restoration project for someone who wants to disassemble it and restore it from frame up. Most of the parts are already there. It needs a proper restoration. I’m asking $6000 and it has a clear title. The price is in consideration of the engine work needed.”

    I like the look of this GPW, looks authentic in a style that reflects reality of the war era. Not a shiny pristine, (look but don’t touch) restoration, but a restoration with character. The weathered look of the paint, especially caught my eye. Nice…

    Thanks Bob. I’ve updated the post. I must have skipped right over the cracked block.
