This is a pretty early GPW, #10584.

This is a Special Jeep for a Special Collection. This is the rare model of Ford jeeps which were built on Willys Frames before Ford could Produce its on frames.
Complete Restoration of Entire Jeep. Engine, Transmission, transfer case, differentials etc.
Body is all original with a nice F script on the rear. Much time was taken to preserve as many F bolts as possible and keep the jeep in original condition.
Jeep is in Excellent running condition and is a true museum piece. Looks as if it just rolled off factory lines. Not one to take 4 wheeling.

Lacks some original parts, but looks solid.
“Up for sale is my 1943 Ford WWII Military Jeep! Looking to sell it to a good home not a muzeum. Would like it to go to a WWII vet, or a Military vet family just to put a smile on there face and make them happy and proud to one of the very few. If it goes to a good home willing to bring down the price (not free) if they are not picking up to sell and make a buck. This is a original hard to find Ford not a MB or Willys.
I have only had if for a few years myself (picked it up from an old time farmer who has since passed) since that time I ran across couple more (42 and another 43 that needs lots of work) so this one needs to go before I can start on them. The farmer says this 1943 GPW is one of the few original matching numbered jeeps left, and the old timer started rebuilding it and then sold to me with bill of sale just before he passed. I have had the engine professionally rebuilt top to bottom and put back in. Runs and drives great. I had put in a new radiator, gas tank,seat cushions Title can be gotten (guaranteed) just being I am not keepingit and let new owner put in his name”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $11,000.

“1942 Ford GPW. I have a clear title. New tires, new canvas top and seats. Rebuilt carburetor. 5 combat rims. Original riveted brass data plates – numbers match the frame. This was a running jeep that was cleaned, repaired as necessary, painted, and returned to the original condition when obtained. It has been converted to 12 volts. with an alternator. It is believed that all the parts are original except for the front bumper and horn (try to find a Sparton horn at a decent price!) and of course, the alternator. There are a lot of Ford marked parts – it is assumed that those who did repairs and replacements did not worry about using Ford marked parts in the past.”
Includes a hand crank and a capstan.
“1942 Ford GPW Runs and Drive very nice. has most of canvas, No top. The Tub is a Ford Script Replacement Tub. Combat wheels rifle rack, Jack and Ax. Also has hand crank. Completely rewired. Also has Capstan winch in complete working order. Additional photos on request.

“I am posting for a friend that doesn’t do C-list. He has a 1943 Ford jeep, fully restored, 5K put into its internals in 2013 and never used thereafter. Complete with pioneer kit (shovel, pick, etc.) gas can, machine gun pedestal, non-directional tires with spare and even canvas water bucket. I can answer some questions via e-mail but better to call him. His name is Mike and he writes gun articles so is pretty busy all the time. He said you can leave a message but you will have to wait a while for the beep as his phone erased his message.”
Deserves a few more photos.

Will sell without the gun for less.
“This is a full restoration on an all matching numbered GPW. The Jeep is out-fitted with a “Simulated” firing 50 cal. Conveniently installed to hide the gas and oxygen bottles that have quick dis-connects for easy installation and removal. The engine is a GPW engine that again matches the Data Plates and frame number and was built by one of the best in the business. These engines are fully balanced, ported and polished and made to run like “Swiss Watches”. Parade siren installed for those who need a warning before the gun gets fired! Restoration was done by people who know what factory Jeep should look and perform like. Fully licensed and titled, ready to go!
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9500
(09/22/2015) It’s listed as a 1946. This VIN is incorrect as well.
“Noting that the parts for this and the Willys were completely interchangable, however parts produced by Ford include the cursive ‘F’ character. This GPW includes only Ford parts, which adds to the rarity of this vehicle.
This is a fully functional, mechanically sound GPW. All gauges work. The top is after market but simply swapped to make original. I have both the shovel & axe, which were included with this vehicle from the factory.
I am currently working on obtaining a title. I have owned it for several years and never really considered having to let it go, so I didn’t persue the paperwork to this point. It has been stored inside and frankly has only been driven a few miles since I’ve owned it. This is one awesome vehicle to own and I regret selling it.”
Some pics show windshield lettering and other don’t. I don’t know which are most recent.
“This is a 1944 GPW Ford made WW2 Jeep with title. I fully rebuilt this jeep less than 3 years ago with a frame off restoration. The engine, clutch and transmission have been professionally rebuilt. I have over 400 documented hours into the restoration, and I’ve spent much more than the asking price. its had only 700 trouble free miles since its overhaul.
This restoration uses the original tub, frame, parts and sheet metal. Reproduction parts have been kept to a minimum. It has an original Ford WW2 engine but not numbers matching.
The good: runs and drives great, is restored, new everything from the wiring harness to brakes to drivetrain to the tires.
The not so good: leak between tcase and trans. Not an original WW2 carb, horn, or speedo gauge (these are incredibly rare and would add a lot of $$ to the price). Converted to 12 volt for simplicity. I did a disk brake conversion. Would give you the parts to restore it to original if desired.
Price does not include the replica .30 cal machine gun and pintle mount. These are cheap if you must have one. Canvas top, ax and shovel are not original or included.
reason for selling: I’m restoring a WC dodge and the wife says I have too many projects around. She wants the place picked up. Price is firm but If we must negotiate I could keep the original tandem tow bar or other things and save you money.
NO CL flakes, low baller flippers or tire kickers pls. I don’t have to sell this. These antiques will go crazy with value in the future and are a great investment.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $12,000.
This one has been well cared for by the family.
“This is a Ford GPW made on 5/21/1943 a Friday, 1943. It was bought by my Grandfather in 1947 from fort Ord calif. It has been in the family since then and passed to me. It is in great shape with little to no rust and is stock, other than it is now 12volts and has larger brakes. This jeep had two things in life to do, and that was to go hunting and live in the garage. When you call I can tell you more about this grate piece of history.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $15,000
