1942 GPW Temecula, CA **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500

(01/02/2011) This appears to have an unusual bar on the passenger side spanning across the rear wheel well.

“I have the title in hand, with current registered black plates.

This is a nice old jeep. It has a Willys MB hood. This was one of the first Ford keeps made. The frame serial number is GPW 10792* (yes it is a star, not a missing number) The body does not have a serial number, which is correct for the early 42 jeeps. The motor serial is 171304, so it isn’t the original motor but it is still the correct L134
It has a Volvo gas tank behind the seats in the cargo area. The steering column and seats are vw.
The body and undercarriage are solid.
I had the starter rebuilt last year.

Has locking/non-locking front axle so it can be towed. Also has light hookup like a trailer for towing.

Has a black top and doors that come with it.

The bad- I had ezlube change the oil and 2 months later, I found out the oil had been leaking out of the drain plug. I found out when the motor stopped running. This just happened in mid August. Prior to this, I had put a new battery in it and used it daily for a 12 mile commute. Tranny and 4wd work great.”

Year? GPW (Movie Prop?) West Jordan, Ut No Price

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

The seller has a variety of war and war props for sale.  He notes MB and GPW parts are for sale as well.  The vehicle below appears to be a GPW. I talked with my friend Van recently and Van mentioned that he assembled some prop jeeps for use as film props and sometimes used a variety of vehicle parts.  So, you might want to check this jeep out closely (it might or might not have been assembled by Van).

“For Sale:  I am thinning my large collection of WWII and Korean War era collectables.

I have been collecting World War 2 period uniforms, gear and equipment for the past 35 years. I have focused my colleting primarily on the items used by the good guys (the Allies, Army, Air force, Marines, Navy), but I do have a good smattering of German and Japanese items as well.

I have flight helmets (WW2 and postwar), flight jackets, goggles, oxygen masks, foot wear, shirts trousers, khakis, Officers and enlisted class A’s, helmets, radios, coats, MB GPW jeep parts, ammo pouches, raincoats, field gear, crates, ammo boxes, bayonets, holsters, Leather Garand Scabbards, pistol belts, garand / carbine parts and accessories and lots, lots more.

I also manufacture and can supply military canvas items for vehicle restorations and period field gear.

I produced the majority of field gear used in the productions of “Band of Brothers”, “Windtalkers” and I was the Senior Military Technical Advisor for the great, locally produced film “Saints and Soldiers”. In fact, most of the collectables I will be selling were used as wardrobe and props in that production.

I am reasonable on prices, the more you buy, the better deal I will make you.

Please call or e-mail and let me know what you like and what your looking for. I will let you know if I have it.

801-494-9852 Cell- please note, my number was incorrectly listed previosly. This is my correct number.

Peace, Ray”

1963 Hotchkiss New York eBay

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB, Other 4x4s • TAGS: , .

Hotchkiss’ don’t pop up for sale here in the U.S. too often.  You can learn more about them on Andy’s M201 website.

“Although I’ve owned many jeeps this was my first and only Hotchkiss so I am not an expert.  A few other projects force me to sell this baby.  What is unbelievable bout this jeep is its condition for an unrestored jeep.  It is very solid.  As for the drive train it is all in excellent condition.  The jeep is now riding on four combat wheels and a spare combat wheel (I think combat wheels look better than original hotchkiss wheels).  The engine bay is very complete and correct.  This is one of those jeeps you can enjoy for many years.  During its life it has been registered and titled as an MB but from my research it is a hotchkiss which you don’t see too many of.  According to the tag on the motor is say that DATE DE RECEPTION IS 2/10/63, I don’t know if that is considered to be delivery date or not but I am determining the jeep to be a 63 based on that information, if I’m incorrect feel free to email me.  This jeep looks even better in person so come see it if you can.  For the buy it now price I have a tandem tow bar as well as a T1 compressor that I will include.  I would recommend keeping it in this condition and never restore it.  I would drive this jeep anywhere in the US from California to New York, that is how good this baby runs.  I am not a mechanic so, in an effort to keep everybody happy I recommend that all interested parties come see and inspect the jeep before bidding.  I will consider MA, GPA or Bantam parts and manuals as partial trade towards the jeep.  Good luck and happy bidding.  For last minute questions feel free to contact me at colshlby65@aol.com or 702-768-9972.”

All original and family owned since bought out of WWII.  It looks like the front hubs aren’t original.  It has an interesting carrier in the back.

“1942 GPW Military Jeep.  All Original, Everything Including the Engine, Transmission, Drive Train are all ORGINAL.

This Jeep has been in storage for over twenty years and hasn’t been started for twenty years. But engine turns over, nothing seized.

This Jeep has been in my family since my uncle bought it from the government after he got out of WWII.

This Jeep also has the front tow bar on that is military issue. They would use this to link two two jeeps together to tow a howitzer.  I just recently got all the fees paid on this jeep and have current registration and clean title.”

1943 GPW Saratoga, Ca **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

“You are bidding on a 1943 Ford GPW Willys Jeep, which has had an amateur restoration done in 2002. It is from a local San Jose, CA estate we are selling. It starts right up and drives OK. The vehicle has the original data tags on the glove box showing the vehicle serial number: GPW118251. The frame serial number is GPW118251. The Body serial number, which is supposed to be stamped on the tub/body driver side cowl is not present. The Engine serial number, supposed to be stamped on the block to the right of the Oil filler tube is not present.

ENGINE & RUNNING GEAR: 4 cylinder 134 cid 60 HP L-Head engine apparently of a later date, serial number unknown. The only numbers I could find on the engine were located on the lower right side just above the oil pan:  10-4 . . . 64 1087-L-W7 AN1-CR-N2. The engine has an alternator upgrade kit. The engine has a small water leak, I suspect from the water pump. The transmission seems OK, but the clutch will need replacing before too long. The transfer case looks OK, the 4WD works OK.

BRAKES: The brakes appear to need replacing, along with repair to the emergency brake.

ELECTRICAL: The vehicle has been converted to a 12 Volt system. It looks like the wiring harness was replaced when restored in 2002. I could not get the headlights, brake light, dashboard lights or horn to work, but all other electrical functions seem OK.

FRAME: Original with VIN # GPW118251. The front left tongue has rewelded from a wreck, with some rust, otherwise it looks OK.

BODY: I couldn’t find the VIN where it is suppose to be located. The body shows rewelding work and heavy bondo work, with some cracks showing through the paint. But it looks pretty good.

EXTERIOR: Canvas top has wear to the left rear seam and some fading, but looks OK. It was repainted Army Olive Green with white lettering in 2002 and is in good condition. It has the tools on the side, gas can on the rear and a tow bar on the front.

INTERIOR: The driver’s seat has a tear, otherwise the passenger seat and rear bench are OK. All the dashboard gauges work. Manual windshield wipers. Tool kit under passenger seat. With gun rack. After market seat belt for passenger only.

SUMMARY: The 2002 restoration is showing some wear, but the jeep starts right up and drives OK. I couldn’t find any “F” Ford markings on parts, or bolts. A nice driver.”

1942 GPW Parsonsfield, ME **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9000.

“I’m listing my 1942 Ford GPW WWII Jeep. It was a complete frame off restoration. There may be 2000 miles on a complete rebuild motor. It’s coming all set up for the winter months. It has an early made Arctic top made just for the WWII jeeps, and I’ve installed a heater for the cold winter days. The drivers seat os adjustable so that big guys can drive it. I’m 6’5″ and would have had to drive with the steering wheel imbedded in my stomach. It has 4 brand new 600×16 military tires on it. A new paint job and a spare gas can that is dated 1942 to match the year of the Jeep. I’m asking $9000 to me it’s worth much more but with the economy the way it is I thought I would be realistic. If you’ve gone to any Car shows around southern maine you’ve seen this jeep with a big machine gun on it. NO the gun doesn’t go with it.”

“You are bidding a 1945 FORD GPW serial number 272179 ALL NUMBERS do match; Frame, motor, and original glove box data plate.  The Jeep does run, drive and stop. This jeep is what I’d call an older soft restoration (basically just a paint job, canvas, and mechanical attention where needed). It is incredibly complete and incredibly original. Really this one is a true survivor…..”
