1942 GPW Santa Rosa, CA **SOLD**

• 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.”

1942 GPW Griffin, GA $18,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was a sealed auction. Now priced at $18,000.

“This GPW has been garage kept and is about as rust free as you’ll find. Accompanying the Jeep is an article showing where a similar jeep was presented to Admiral Nimitz by the military at Pearl Harbor so the Jeep in the article matches this one right down the year, make, model and military number on hood. There is no way to verify this so one has to assume it is a clone to commemorate this event. Starts and runs like it should. Has a few cosmetic flaws as you can see in the pics but is mechanically sound. If you would like to make offer but will be unable to attend you may send offer via email. This vehicle does not have a Georgia title so ownership will transfer via bill of sale.”

“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.”

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!

1946? GPW Ronan, MT **SOLD**

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

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.”

1944 GPW Boise, ID $14,500

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

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.”
