“Located in Central West Texas.  Ford GPW numbers matching Jeep:  Frame number, engine number and body tag all match.  Frame is clean, F-stamped as shown. The Jeep has been registered on the G503 site indicating early spring production number by SN. The Jeep has been in Texas since it’s military sale.  It has been on a ranch used primarily for hunting.  There is no title to the Jeep. It will be sold on a bill of sale with my name, address and phone number on the bill of sale.

The Gun mount crossmember is excellent, straight, light surface rust only.  Not one crack or fracture found throughout the frame. “F” script hardware throughout.  Engine fires with a hot battery and manually added fuel. The original fuel system is non-existent. The carb elbow, tube to external oil bath air filter is missing. The oil bath external air filter is missing. The external oil filter and bracket are also missing. The Pintal hitch has been cut to facilitate added rear steel bumper.  Front bumper area has been plated over with diamond plate, which will need scarfing tip, die-grinder and polish to remove, but the front frame arches are perfect as are the shock mount perches and the ends of the frame itself. 

This is a restoration project, a roller.  Brakes are not dragging.  T-84 transmission shifts smoothly through all ranges.  Good, strong clutch pedal. Drivetrain is complete.  Springs have had over-load add-ons bolted on. The tub has been repaired in multiple places.  The tub is uncut, but as shown, repaired with overlay panels through rust-through areas in the floor. Tool box lids function as designed, but the bottoms do have rust-through.  The windshield glass frame is original, and the glass is actually flawless, but the actual frame to the entire assembly has been re-fabricated using original curved lower arms and 1″ square tubing. This is mounted and clasps to the tub without issue, but is not original and will need replacement. The rims are 15″ not 16.”  What you see is what I have. The transmission cover plate and steel rings for shifter boots are in the jeep.”
