GPW JeepRod Cranford, NJ $10,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), Jeep Rods

No title.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/434954274377439

“I’ve decided to sell my “flat rod” It’s a Ford GPW body, M38 frame with a rebuilt 302 and a C4 trans. Scout II front end with GM truck outers, Dodge truck rear end. I’ve got a lot of build pics on some Facebook groups. It’s all wired, starts, runs and moves, needs front shocks (I was trying to decide between friction and tube) and some minor finishing work, check everything’s tight, etc… Gauges, lights, signals, and horn all work. I don’t have a title but have a line on one through a guy from Washington state. Depending on where you are you might not need one. I know I’ll never get out what I put in but I’m thinking $10k obo if anyone’s interested.”

“1942 Willys / Ford GPW Jeep.
The Jeep is registered and I have the pink slip in hand.
The jeep starts and drives although it needs a new clutch plate, the clutch is slipping. The engine is a post war engine. I cannot see any numbers on the frame, I did not want to remove the paint looking for them. The combat rims and tires are not being sold with the jeep, I have other rims and tires to replace them for transport. I am selling the jeep to finance a rebuild I am doing on a Willys MB. I have 4 Willys Jeep’s, too many projects to keep up with.”

“Willys MB/ Ford GPW… make unknown. Year/mileage unknown. This farm jeep last ran 20 years ago. It’s been sitting in a barn ever since the bearings in the rear axle gave out. This would be a great farm Jeep for anyone with some time and money. You would need to pick it up with a trailer.”

1944 GPW Prescott Valley, AZ **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,000.

Joe in Mesa’s friend Vern is selling his GPW. Joe reports that Vern, whose father was in the OSS, is a history buff who knows his stuff, so this should be a pretty accurate GPW. Why only $14K? Well in addition to the light harness needing to be installed, the transmission leaks (don’t they ALL?) and that bothers him. He thinks it should be pulled out and re-gasketed.

“1944 GPW, Everything is correctly F marked. No aftermarket parts, New Firestone tires, New highend wiring harness, Lights need to be wired and connected. The kit for that comes with it. Arizona title. When all is said and [done] it’s a really nice jeep; runs very well, can’t think of too many problems with it. Asking 14K. Firm.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $1800.

(12/15/2020) This looks to be a GPW body on a CJ (Possible 1953 CJ-3A or CJ-3B) chassis. There’s no engine. The cowl modification is unusual, but I’d say the steering setup is especially unusual!

“Vintage Jeep Ford GPW 1942 GPW18221. Lots of original F script parts. Non running but engine turns freely. Engine is not original as far as I can tell as engine serial number starts with J. Front frame serial number is GPW18231 which falls somewhere between 3 and 7 of 1942. Condition is “Used”. Three 15” wheels and one 16” non combat rim. Would make good project or for parts. No title selling as is. Pickup only in SW VA or would consider delivering within 100 miles. No reserve.”

“1943 World War II military jeep. Clean clear California title with no back fees. It’s all stock except for the small Block Ford V8 that runs excellent. It also has hanging petals with hydraulic brake and clutch master cylinder. This is a great little run around hot rod Jeep that could easily be a candidate for a full restoration or Rockcrawler build. Or just leave it the way it is and have a great time. If you don’t think this is a great deal, then it probably isn’t the deal for you 😊  It has all of the hard stuff to find. Nine slot military grill with the stock headlights and headlight brackets. Tool boxes with latches in the back of the tub. Hood without Willys on it. The correct windshield frame. The stock high-capacity gas tank etc. (I will not be available to show this vehicle until Tuesday, December 29. This will be first come first serve in person cash sale.”

Lots of mods. I’d be surprised if this was “plated” as having served in Pearl Harbor during WWII (obviously wouldn’t have arrived until sometime in 1945 at the earliest if it is a 1945).

“One of a kind. 1945 Jeep. 6 inch lift. On 35s. Full arb air lockers in each axle. On board air compressor and air tank for tires also. Custom roll cage. CD player. Has soft top and doors all in good condition. I’ve owned this for over 10 years. My boys are beginning to out grow it. So thinking I may sell this. Or trade it. It runs great. Plenty of power. 4 speed manual. Dual transfer case. Warn winch. Everything works except the speedo but I just go with flow of traffic. Not sure how to put a price on such a rare unique piece of American history. Plated and documented it’s been in Pearl Harbor. World war 2. So I’m taking offers. I paid 8k for this and have put in a few grand over the years for suspension and tires are new. Mileage is unknown”
