1945 GPW Camarillo, CA $3000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Appears to have a GPW crossmember.

“This vintage jeep has been in the family for about 10 years. It ran and drove well before it went into the shop for a new firewall. Was given to step son as a first vehicle, however this is not a good vehicle for a new driver. I can send more pictures or answer additional questions if requested.
Asking $3,000 negotiable (no low-ballers or scammers please) Do not need help selling this vehicle.

The Good:
Custom Fuel tanks fabricated by Roper Fabrication
Brand new Firewall fabricated by Roper Fabrication
327 SBC Engine freshened up all new gaskets and seals
New heads
New Holly carb (CFM unknown)
PSC Power steering
Lots of parts, just needs someone with the time to wrench them together
Tub is in good shape
Vintage WWII era 1945 (has ammo storage containers and re-enforced floor for machine gun mount)

The bad:
Needs repainting
No wiring, requires all electrical installation
May need new driveshafts, have the originals, but new ones would be better
Has not run in about 3 years”

1942 GPW Phoenix, AZ No Price

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Still Available.

Seller indicates the VIN is #5767 and that it was manufactured in December of 1942. Given the first GPWs were constructed in February of 1942, there seems to be a disconnect   (http://wwiijeepparts.com/Archives/JeepSerialNumber.html#WWIISerialNumbers)

“POSSIBLY THE OLDEST OPERATIONAL FORD GPW JEEP
***FIRST WEEK OF PRODUCTION–DECEMBER 1942***
VIN #5767

ALL ORIGINAL PARTS HAVE BEEN CLEANED AND SAVED

About 6,500 were produced that first week. Somehow this one survived over 70 years in original condition. However, to be operational, it required a lot of TLC such as:

REBUILT ORIGINAL MOTOR AND MANIFOLDS
NEW ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, REGULATOR, BATTERY AND STARTER
NEW RADIATOR
NEW TIRES AND TUBES
NEW BRAKE SYSTEM
NEW HOSES AND BELTS
NEW TRANSMISSION AND HOUSING
NEW SEAT CUSHIONS
NEW FUEL PUMP AND FILTER
ORIGINAL CARB REBUILT
NEW FUEL TANK AND LINES
SEVERAL HUNDRED HOURS OF THE OWNER’S LABOR”

This is a pretty early GPW, #10584.

Some additional parts as well. Must take everything.

“Well not a complete GPW. What I have is frame with axles, springs,steering and wheels. Also included is windshield assembly, and front fenders. The frame serial number is 19095. The frame is solid. It has the original F script trans cross member. Half of the machine gun mount has been cut off, has 4″ channel for a front bumper and the front u-shaped cross member has had the front of it removed and replaced with angle iron. You can see in the pictures. Axles are Willys MB and turn fine. The left rear axle shaft is an early scalloped type. Has steering gear box and steering wheel. Brake and clutch pedals and master. T84 F script case. Bell housing, shift tower and working 18 transfer case. Fenders are in decent shape. Windshield has good glass but windshield frame retainer(hinge part of tilt out window) is rusted and will need to be replaced. Wheels are 15″ with dry rot tires that hold air. I do not have any paper work on this but will include a bill of sale. MUST TAKE IT ALL.”

Lacks some original parts, but looks solid.

“Up for sale is my 1943 Ford WWII Military Jeep! Looking to sell it to a good home not a muzeum. Would like it to go to a WWII vet, or a Military vet family just to put a smile on there face and make them happy and proud to one of the very few. If it goes to a good home willing to bring down the price (not free) if they are not picking up to sell and make a buck. This is a original hard to find Ford not a MB or Willys.

I have only had if for a few years myself (picked it up from an old time farmer who has since passed) since that time I ran across couple more (42 and another 43 that needs lots of work) so this one needs to go before I can start on them. The farmer says this 1943 GPW is one of the few original matching numbered jeeps left, and the old timer started rebuilding it and then sold to me with bill of sale just before he passed. I have had the engine professionally rebuilt top to bottom and put back in. Runs and drives great. I had put in a new radiator, gas tank,seat cushions Title can be gotten (guaranteed) just being I am not keepingit and let new owner put in his name”
