“1942 ford GPW. WWII era jeep built by ford for the war effort on the bantam/willy’s design. ( not a bronco obviously) The dash tags are sadly missing. This project needs a new home, original transmission, transfercase, axles and drive lines and rims. The tub and fenders are original, the floor was replaced as well as the seats. (Not original) There was a Chevy 283 put into it that changed the original steering and motor mounts. The firewall was notched back to make room for the V8. Not selling with a motor. The engine bay is currently empty. I was hoping to get a four cylinder back into it. The V8 was too heavy for the suspension. The patina is from the original owner having it stripped of paint. So it is RUST in color. I had it running and driving, lights and brakes are good. The tires are cracking and the motor was pulled. Too many projects and not enough time.”

(from previous ad) … “Great Fun! Has been in the family over 40 years. It runs, has full roll bar, front and back towing. 2 sets of tires and rims. It has been kept in storage. My father told me it was a 4 cylinder plymouth engine. It is a 4 wheel 3 speed. It has very low mileage. Enjoyable as it is or easily made to look like new. No cracks in the windshield. The original serial numbers are on the under carriage with the 5 pointed star at the beginning and end of the sequence. It has a clear title and has been put on non-op as I cannot drive it anymore because of numerous back surgeries. I will miss it. I learned to drive on it when I was 9 years old. I hope to find it a good home. Some seal are dry and need greasing. You can make an appt to see it. Contact me through my email.”

1945 GPW Early APU … Parts Available

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPW (Ford MB), Industrial-Welder-Generator • TAGS: .

UPDATE: As of July 13, 2021, this GPW APU is now in Stefan’s hands in Germany. As you can see, by the time he acquired it parts had already been removed (see original post from 2017 at the bottom of this post). He does not want the APU parts. I figured it is a long shot, but that I would check to see if anyone had an interest in the APU-related parts (some are O.E. Szekely); Stefan is willing to part with them.  Comment below if interested or email me at d@deilers.com and I’ll connect you with Stefan.

Here’s how the jeep looked prior to pulling the parts:
