1945 Ford GPW 1/4 Ton Utility.  Ford 302 V8 engine, 4 speed manual transmission, 4X4, power steering, power front disc brakes, Unilite Electronic Ignition, Dual Brake Boosters.  Wheel base extended from original with longer frame.  Vintage metal removable hardtop with locking doors.  Front window defroster heater/fan.  Engine was professionally built and has low miles (approx. 1500).  Two-Barrel Holley Carburetor with manual choke.  Starts and runs well.  Interior has a full roll bar.  Includes a nice heavy front duty tow bar.  Also has a Smitty built Rear bumper/Spare tire rack.  Locking hubs front and rear (rear hubs currently set non-functioning/fully engaged). Rear Differential rebuilt with new ring and pinion (est. 5000 miles ago).  New full gauge set but electronic speedometer works off and on (listed mileage is since the engine rebuild, actual mileage is unknown).  Will drive highway speeds with no issues (Drives like an 80’s CJ5 with a V8 power).  Originally a Navy Sea Bee military vehicle.  Has plenty of panache and public appeal whenever drove or shown.”
