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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This “War Eagle” has an owner with some history.

1942-gpw-riverside-ca

“I purchased this 1942 GPW Ford Army Jeep at a military swap meet in 1995. The previous owner had rebuilt the engine and told me it was very low mileage. I stripped the entire body down to the chassis and had it sand blasted. I primed and repainted the entire Jeep myself with an original Army green color. I installed new brakes, brake shoes, master cylinder, all four wheel cylinders, and a new clutch plate and disc. The transmission was rebuilt, installed a new wiring harness, and had all the seats reupholstered. I had a new top made as well. I purchased new tires at the time but they are slightly worn now. It took me approximately 1 year to rebuild the entire Jeep.

1945 GPW Shrewsbury, MA **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Jeep has a front-end shimmy.

“Jeep is fantastic shape and ready to drive this summer. The one issue is if you hit a bad pot-hole it can get a front end shimmy that requires you to slow until it goes away.
If not for this issue I would have priced the vehicle MUCH higher, but am being honest and reducing the reserve price more than enough to fix it if desired.
A fix is not mandatory, you can drive for years as is, just making sure any possible buyer is aware of this issue. It’s the only issue with the jeep, everything else is great.
It normally drives smooth as can be.”

1942 GPW Ft. Myers, Fl $24,000

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

Mark just listed this over at war jeeps.com

“1942 WW2 Jeep. It is Model GPW built by Ford and identical in every way to the Willys Model MB. Both Ford and Willys shared the WW2 production of 500,000 Jeeps almost equally. Ford had a policy of identifying virtually all of their parts including Bolts with the Ford script \”F\”. Because of this, a complete and original GPW will usually sell for a higher price than the comparable Willys. My GPW is serial number 10,100. Simply stated this is a very early WW2 Jeep and the 10,100th Jeep produced of a total Ford production of approximately 250,000 Jeeps. It was completed on March 25, 1942. The date is engraved on the original Ford data plate on the Glove box door. The body, floors and all metal are in excellent condition. There is no rust. The Jeep has been garaged since I\’ve owned it. Have Top/bows. The engine is original and is engraved GPW 10,100 on the block. The Frame is also engraved GPW 10,100. The Jeep cranks and starts like it should. It is a good driver as well. The Jeep has a gun mount for a 30 cal Browning MG. I have the Browning MG which is made from a Browning parts kit. It is correct in appearance, size and weight. The guts of the MG have been modified so the MG will not fire. The MG is not a Live gun. It is for display and is being sold separately for $1500″
