This has a CJ-3A/DJ-3A oil filter bracket, so other engine parts might be non GPW. This has a brake booster installed.

1941? GPW? Mondovi, MN No Price

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: , , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Seller has been told this is worth quite a bit ($25k). I’m less sure about that evaluation. I see nothing to suggest it is a 1941 FORD GP.

“1941 Ford Jeep; was an MP Jeep tricked out by the army Corp of engineers. Rebuilt 2000 miles ago by Max-Bilt. Looking to trade for older FJ, $15000 to $20000 or best offer. Also interested in trading for a 30HP or skid steer, or anything else interesting. Was told by Max-Bilt Off-Road that it’s worth $25000 without plow, and plow is not included. Currently camo paint.”

GPW and MB Orcas Island, WA $7000 for both

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

These are described as MBs, but it looks like one has a GPW front cross member. They are located on Orcas Island, which requires taking the ferry. A truck plus a two-vehicle trailer will probably require a $325 ferry ticket (truck 15′ + trailer 30′), if I am reading the fare schedule correctly.

“Two 1943 Willys MB Jeeps FOR SALE
Selling two vehicles together – $7,000/Both OBO
We purchased these in 2010 from a Military Surplus outfit in the Grants Pass, Oregon area. We tinkered on them over the years, both have run and were driven in the past on our land. Not currently running. These are two separate restoration projects. I have the original paperwork from the military surplus seller including the title for the camo one; the blue one is untitled. The old license plates on the vehicles were there at the time of our purchase. We never transferred title to our name. For purchase, I will provide two Bills of Sale plus title for the camo one and statement of fact about the blue one. You can apply for title for the blue jeep and get a VIN assigned as outlined by WA State DMV for vehicle without title.
Camo painted jeep: 1943 Willys MB – title in hand. This jeep clearly spent time in Europe and likely remained in post war service in Germany. (It has some parts with labels written in Deutsch). This jeep is fully intact and mostly original. Key included. Seats all included and recovered. Spare tire mount and tire included. Bimini frame included (no canvas). Jerrycan holders included and mounted. Frame intact. Surface rust throughout, and rust through hole on the mounting steps and adjoining side panel.
Blue painted jeep: untitled, estimated to be similar vintage (same grill style) as the camo MB so early 1940s. Key included. Appears to be modified: i.e no bench seat, and gas tank is fabricated and located at the rear (where a bench seat would have been). Frame intact, surface rust throughout, no holes.
Contact: Laura Yeats 206 930 6437

” I have a WW2 era 1942 Willies jeep/Ford that was originally purchased by my grandfather. It was handed down to my dad and then me. It’s been kept in great shape for its age 82 years of existance, mostly garaged. Everything works, including the new battery, distributer, fuel pump & fuel lines, brakes and brake lines as well. The PTO driven winch was just swapped out for an identical 10K lb rebuilt. You could literally winch yourself straight up a tree. Windsheild can be lowered all the way down. TUBE TIRES, with extreme mud tread makes it almost impossible to get a flat. Added flood lights with a bank of auxiliary switches (for adding on whatever your heart desires; PA, ect.. No rust and starts and drives right now. (Dont forget to double clutch since they didnt have synchro gears way back when.) Asking 12,000 o.b.o.”

The title is registered to the motor which is a GPW block with a Willy’s mb head.
Clean title & current registration in my name
