    On this one I assumed that the seller evaluated it and found it has more GPW parts than MB parts (or has GPW data tags), but I couldn’t say for sure why the seller identifies this as a GPW.

    Higgins in New Orleans was one of the companies that was making PT boats . They also built Landing craft. I saw in something I was reading about the PT’s that at the end of the war they didn’t need anymore so the Government threw them a bone to do Referbs on Jeeps .

    Has ’43 GPW data tags on glove box…GPW head on MB motor, GPW ‘F-GPW’ stamped radiator, ‘F’ bolts on B/O light, MB style frame, and ’45 composite body (body # same month/year as Higgins rebuild tag-March ’45)…It’s a mix of GPW/MB parts and is described as such in my CL ad…PO identified it according to the glove box data plate…And I did too…Craig/owner

    Seems like a solid original jeep, with a good price, why has it not sold? If it was on the west coast at that price someone would have bought it.
