1945 GPW Camarillo, CA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Was $3000. **Status Unknown**

Appears to have a GPW crossmember.

“This vintage jeep has been in the family for about 10 years. It ran and drove well before it went into the shop for a new firewall. Was given to step son as a first vehicle, however this is not a good vehicle for a new driver. I can send more pictures or answer additional questions if requested.
Asking $3,000 negotiable (no low-ballers or scammers please) Do not need help selling this vehicle.

The Good:
Custom Fuel tanks fabricated by Roper Fabrication
Brand new Firewall fabricated by Roper Fabrication
327 SBC Engine freshened up all new gaskets and seals
New heads
New Holly carb (CFM unknown)
PSC Power steering
Lots of parts, just needs someone with the time to wrench them together
Tub is in good shape
Vintage WWII era 1945 (has ammo storage containers and re-enforced floor for machine gun mount)

The bad:
Needs repainting
No wiring, requires all electrical installation
May need new driveshafts, have the originals, but new ones would be better
Has not run in about 3 years”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $23500.

This is a pretty early GPW, #10584.

“GPW 10584 Matching Frame and Engine.
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”

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

UPDATE:**SOLD** Was $15,699

(10/23/2016) Looks good. Has been converted to 12 Volt.

“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.”
