1943 GPW Chappaqua, NY $3500

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/07/2018) Has some CJ parts.

https://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/cto/d/chappaqua-world-war-ii-jeep-gpw-willys/6842787923.html

“This is a 1943 (based on VIN) GPW Military Jeep. Needs some work on the drivers and passenger floors, the axe and shovel panel and the rear panel. The rear floor and panels are solid with just surface rust. It has a CJ grill. But I have a WW2 grill which I will include. The left and right fenders need some welding. The gas tank sump needs to be replaced and it needs a gas tank. It has an L134 4 cyl Go Devil Engine, which turns easily and it has a 6 volt alternator. It should be easy to get running. Also, I believe the transmission is the T-90. Based on the color, I would say this was used by the Air Force after the war.”

Roger Martin spotted this GPW for sale. The jeep is listed by a neighbor; the actual seller is Matt. However, the friend who listed it somehow got Matt’s phone number automatically hidden, so there’s no way to contact Matt as of this post. I suspect Matt’s contact info will land on the ad once it has been updated.

“Here is a 1944 Ford GPW. Hopefully if you are reading this, you know what you are looking at. I bought this sight unseen from a farmer’s estate in Wyoming. It is literally a barn find and had to be removed from the upper part of the barn with a forklift. I had it shipped across the country to NC and it sat for a couple years. I own a private restoration shop and recently got around to looking at what turned out to be a Ford GPW. The vehicle was clearly used on the farm and has had extra holes drilled into the sides and almost looks like they were using it to haul rocks? There are more dents in the tub than rust. The farmer reinforced the front bumper and had brackets for farm implements. It has a tow hitch on the front as well.

The Ford was “hot rodded” out in the 1960s and a Studebaker OHV straight 6 was installed with a T90 transmission. The front axle has Dualmatic locking hubs. From some light research it seems like this engine was made in 1961 and appears to have the original fan belts. I have no idea of the condition of the engine and it is missing the intake. The Goodyear Power Cushion whitewall tires have date codes from the 1960s, which is when the Ford was stored in the barn. It has not been driven in over 50 years. Those 50+ year old tires have tubes in them and still hold air and have tread. The spare appears to be the original “US” marked.

“Rare 1944 Ford GPW WWII Willy’s jeep up for sale! This amazing military vehicle can either be restored or used for parts. As it sits, it is mid-restoration and a lot is taken a part so there are a good amount of parts that will be included with this Ford (see photos). These original (not replica/remakes) GPW’s are hard to come by!
ALSO COMES WITH ORIGINAL DATA PLATES!
(Please note that the front wheels are sitting on there for picture, they are not actually crooked).
This would be a fun project for you to do. This does have some rust (see photos) but the frame is solid. There are a lot of original parts that will come with this bundle (see photos) but the motor, steering wheel, and the front axle are not original. *Please note that we are not experts in collector military vehicles, so there may be other parts that are not original.”

“Real deal WWII army jeep, looks like it was used as a highway dept vehicle after it went surplus. Ford GPW body on a Willy’s MB frame. Basically straight tub but needs a gas tank well. Missing the right front fender. No running gear. Frame is good except for a crack that will need further welding but holds for now – see pic. These are easy rigs to restore and a blast to drive when you’re done, and they take up no space to store. Or, start with this and build whatever 4×4 you want! Clear title.”

(12/14/2018) This might have a rare set of Thor Auto-matic hubs. Frame frame appears to be an MB/GPW frame. The body has a custom inlet and a glove box (though not a standard shape); my best guess is that it’s a replacement body or a customized body of some vintage. Title is from Thailand??

“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.”

Body work has been done on this over the years, floor redone but not right, some bondo in cowl on the passenger side and over rear wheel well on passenger’s side. It’s a ten footer! By no means is this a pile of junk but I just want anyone interested to know the facts about it. I am pulling the engine next week and the price will go up accordingly. Look at E-Willys or any of the military jeep for sale sites and you will see what a really nice one goes for.With new floor panels, new rear fender wells and the motor rebuilt and the major work is done. I will pull the body off after the motor is rebuilt and do the floor and rear fender wells again the price will reflect the repairs as I go through it.”
