1943 GPW Tacoma, Wa $2800

UPDATE: Price dropped to $2800

(08/03/2010) This looks good.

“I have a 1943 Ford GPW jeep for sale ” The Original Jeep” I have painted it and done some minor repairs to it over the past few years. It has a 134 Flathead motor and it is very reliable!!!! Before I bought the jeep the previous owner sent the block to a shop to have it completely rebuilt. It has approximately 4000 miles miles on the motor and I had rebuilt the transmission and transfer case and drove it for the past 1500 miles. There is a few cancer issues with the jeep but that is kind of expected for a vehicle of this age. I had replaced the shackle’s for the springs and converted it to a 12 volt alternator system. Serious inquiries only please.”

1943 GPW Las Vegas, NV **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** was on eBay.

(03/13/2011) It isn’t completely original, but should make a good looking gpw with some restoration.

“How’s that for patina on an old jeep.  You are bidding on a 1943 GPW that has been in the same family since the 50’s and the paint is probably that old as well.  According to the mechanic who checked the vehicle it is in excellent running condition with great oil pressure.  According to the little plate that I found in the jeep in was reconditioned in 1945 by a company in Oakland, California.

I’ll try and look for the tag to see what company did the reconditioning.  I bought the jeep because of the condition and that old faded paint which is hard to find with the plan to put my GPW motor in it but I’ve found another vehicle so I’m putting this one back for sale.  Although the engine is in great running condition it is a willys, I do however have a GPW motor (which needs to be rebuilt ) that I can put in the vehicle instead.  For an extra $300 the winner can get the jeep with both engines.  As can be seen in the engine bay pictures, it is pretty complete with the exception of the horn (F marked fuel filter, correct air cleaner etc.).

All gauges are present and appear to be original to the jeep.  There is some rust in the hat channels.  The different shade of green is due to the seat covers that protected the covered area over the years but it looks like if you sand the paint a little you could bring it back to life ( I tried that while looking for hood numbers).  As with any vehicle that has been sitting for many years it will need some work to be road worthy.  I don’t usually take trades but if you have any rare slat grill parts or early Ford GPW part, I will take them on trade as long as we agree on price before you bid.  With a good tune up and new brakes and canvas, you can enjoy this jeep for many years before restoring it.  As always I recommend that all interested parties do their research before bidding on the vehicle.   Since I require a non refundable deposit, I also recommend that all interested parties come see the jeep in person before bidding to make sure it is what they want.  I will except offer through ebay for our mutual protection.  I will only end the auction early to end to the highest bidder once I’ve received a deposit.  It’s very hard to find a jeep in good running condition for that price that you can start enjoying in very little time.”

1942 GPW Wharton, Tx $5500

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $5500.

(06/15/2010) This jeep has seen a few updates.

“1942 Willys off-road jeep. It was converted 3 yrs ago to a Chevy 4.3L V-6, Ford T-18 transmission with sought after 6.32-1 granny gear and Dana 18 transfer case. Axles are a 3/4 ton Dana 44 front with detroit locker and a Dana 60 rear. They have both been completely rebuilt and narrowed with Moser axles and bearings, Heavy duty Tom Woods drive shafts front and rear with a CV style u-joint on rear. This is one of few Willys Jeeps that have been converted to coil spring with front and rear triangulated suspension. It has a awesome, smoothe off road ride with incredible articulation with no bindage. It has dual exhaust, edelbrock carb, power steering, 33” Thornbirds, hydraulic clutch, and a large marine battery. Has a massive 200 amp alternator to run 1000 watts of lights and a Warn 9000 winch with a removable cradle to plug in front and rear. The entire drive line since new only has a couple thousand miles on it and has never been street legal or taken to the beach. This Jeep has only been used in the Winter on a 200 acre deer lease for the past few years and stored inside during the summer. I’m no longer paying the high prices for deer leases and decided to sell my Willy and buy a street legal CJ7. Im firm on the 7000 and if it doesn’t sell, I’ll just convert it to street legal.
