1943 GPW w/ CJ Tub Palo Cedro, CA $3000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

This is a mix of parts. It does not include a battery.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1469853406829368

“It’s a 43 Ford, 47 tub. Was planning on getting it ready for some trails with friends but I realized I like VWs more. I think it has the original engine. Pan is in decent shape. Engine runs and transmission works although I have only ran through the first two gears on our property. Brakes need to be redone. I have all the replacement brake parts and an aftermarket wiring harness along with a second carb that will come with it. Has a soft top that is not really functional. Tires are delaminating pretty well. Great project for someone … Battery does not come with the car.”

1943 Metamet-Modified Flattie UK £10,995

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPW (Ford MB), MB • TAGS: .

Blaine spotted this Metamet-modified jeep that was owned by the Metamet family. This doesn’t seem to match any of the models on the list of models from the Metamet brochures. The split window windshield doesn’t not appear to fold down, the doors look to be of a suicide style, and the top appears to be a soft top. It’s kind of Jeepsterish.

https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1468062

Metamet-jeep-uk

“This is actually a 1943 ww2 jeep that has been converted into a 4wd roadster , lots of the original inner bodytub remain, Its running and driving but will need renovating , chassis is superb condition , there are lots of options with this jeep, leave as is, change it a bit or revert it back to a ww2 jeep again, Its the only one made by the Metamet company back in the late 1950s, TAX and MOT exempt, UK registered, this unique ww2 jeep conversion, been stored unused for 40 years, this conversion done by the well known metamet jeep conversion company in the 1950s/ 60s, this model never ended up going into production and this is the only one made despite it being shown in the sales brochure, I have fitted original jeep wheels and personally think it looks better and gives it back a bit of its former DNA but the original wider road wheels and tyres go with it

It was kept by a member of the Metamet family as his private vehicle until he recently passed away , this willys mb jeep was built in 1943 and served in the war , the dvla mot history records show that it left the military service and was registered for road use in 1958, sometime after this date the conversion was done , Its been stored unused for the last 40 years , engine is now running , I have a whatsap of the jeep driving, it will need recommissioning brakes refurbishing, fuel line checking through but the chassis is excellent , exhaust all good, radiator holds water and it starts and drives , the engine is smooth, includes extra fitments like free wheeling hubs, radio, clock, folding front bench seat , sports car type fold down hood, hinged doors, drop down boot, this is the only one of its kind in the world and should really be in a collection or museum , most of the original bodytub remains , It could easily be re bodied back to its former ww2 jeep bodywork with a new reproduction body tub , large leather bound file containing many photos and drawings of the build has since been found and I’m hoping to collect that soon”

“For sale is a complete and running Government Issue Survivor 1943 Ford GPW flat fender Jeep (same as Willys MB but manufactured by Ford to keep up with demand during the war… if you are reading this you probably already know that). Still has the original flathead four-cylinder engine and original running gear. Has new Coker / Firestone military NDT tires. Has military canvas and soft top bows. Only thing missing is the emergency brake assembly. Lots of newer odds and ends like steering box rebuild, fuel pump, drivelines rebuilt and fresh seat cushions and military OD green canvas upholstery. This particular unit was a Navy Jeep during its service lift as evidenced by the two holes above the glove box for the USN id tags. Cash or cashiers check only. Do not even think about low balling I do not need to sell it that bad.
