UPDATE: Price dropped to $5200.
(01/02/2014) Missing steps. This appears in good shape.
“This is a 42 Ford military willys jeep that has been modified with a 327 Chevy motor and a 350 transmission. It has been lifted with 36 in mudder tires. Paint and seats are good body is straight. Call or text 9ohthree 8one4 six three 7 eight.”
This appears to have a fairly rare Higgins remanufacturing data plate. The seller doesn’t list a location.
“If you’ve been looking for a great project, you’ve found it. I have a very nice 42 GPW for sale. Although not matching numbers, it does have the original data tags on the glove box that match the frame vin on the frame. The jeep is titled under the GPW vin on the engine. Excellent project if you are looking for an early jeep. It does have some rust but very little for its age. Jeeps in this condition with very little modification are getting harder and harder to find. Just came out of about two decades of storage. I will consider slat grill parts as partial trade. Please ask all questions before bidding.”

It’s a project.
“This is a 1944 ford GPW, which needs a total restoration. It has been restored several times before, looking at the different layers of paint I see evidence of a bright green and red paint job under olive drab layers. Possibly a “follow me” jeep from the local air base but I have no idea. It does have a grey GPW motor, which is interesting in that motor pool motors were painted green so this may be original. There are no data plates on the body but I did purchase a set that will go with the Jeep. I would replace the floor in this Jeep at minimum, but a replacement tub would be the easiest way to go. I have some small parts that the winner is welcome to.
It is missing the radiator and air cleaner stuff also grab handles and the like. What you see is what you get. and of course this is as-is where-is. I can deliver in New York or Penn for a fee, I can assist in loading.”

“I am selling my one of kind 1942 Ford GPW with a 1951 M100 Trailer. Sold as a package deal only. I did a complete frame off restoration of this jeep and trailer in 2004. The paint is a little faded, but pretty much everything is good to go. The engine and transmission where missing when I got the jeep, so I installed a 1985 4.3 liter Chevy V6 with a 4 barrel carburetor and a later model Military M38 T-90 transmission. This Jeep has lots of power and is a blast to drive! The transmission does pop out of second gear sometimes. I just put $1200.00 worth of new tries and wheels on the jeep last August. I kept the jeep as close to original as possible, except for the engine and transmission. It was titled as a 1948 Willys Jeep when I bought it, so that is the way it is still titled. I am asking $9500.00 cash for it and the trailer. Email this post for more info.”

“1945 Ford GPW Military Jeep similar to MB or Willys
This is a great old jeep and has lots of history. I purchased it 10 years ago from a man who got it from his uncle but had no interest. I drove this thing everywhere from the north coast, the central valley, foothills, to the Nevada desert… Just very slowly… And it turns heads everywhere I drive it!
I would love to see this GPW go to someone who is interested in restoring or at least leaving it in its semi-stock form. These rigs are becoming increasingly more difficult to find and this is a numbers matching GPW (frame, body, engine) that has a solid engine and decent body. It is certainly not perfect but also would not take much to turn it into a nice restoration or a fun weekend driver.
UPDATE: Price dropped to $14,500.

(03/082014) It runs, but dies.
“1942 ford jeep, you don’t see many of these around anymore. It’s fun to have but don’t have time for it. It has a flat head 4 cylinder. It will run and idle for a little bit and then die. The fuel cell has some rust in it that clogs the lines. It would be a fun little project for someone. Comes with a roll bar that was made for it and a hard top. Thanks for looking.”
“Clear TN title.
1944 Ford GPW. Reproduction Data Plates match GPW number on frame.
Historical vehicle that is fun to drive.
She leaks a little, it is 70 years old.
This vehicle turns heads when you drive it.
No top included.
I am not interested in a trade and please don’t attempt the cashier’s check scam with me.
Work is taking me overseas in August. This vehicle needs to be driven and enjoyed, not stored. I will store it however if a reasonable offer is not made.”

“This is a 1944 Ford Jeep–runs good – has a new top–good tires–the window is from a Willy as is the hood—they were often used as replacement parts–also have the Ford windshield–

I think you only have to look at eWillys to find another one . . . Unusual rear hitch.
“You will want to look twice at this one, because you probably will never see another one again! Purchased 17 years ago, put into storage container but now need it is time to sell. Complete, yes it is all there. Comes with many, many very to hard find correct parts. NO TITLE so the listing is forcing me to list it for parts but if you can title it, you will be set.”
