1943 GPW Eustis, FL $1800

https://orlando.craigslist.org/atq/d/1943-willys-ford-gpw-jeep/6745473755.html

“1943 Willys Ford GPW Jeep. The tub/body is a Willy the Jeep has many GPW parts. Starter and generator are GPW. The motor in the Jeep is not original. I have a ’43 GPW and wanted to use this one for parts but I will never get around to it. The body it toast but there are salvageable parts: glove box, rear compartment doors, and other parts on the exterior. The frame is also in bad shape. Wheels, tranny, differentials, and axles are good. Also comes with another Motor block and GPW head cover.

I can deliver within a reasonable distance for .50 cents a mile. It is in a car hauler and tires are flat so it will have to be pulled off at destination. It will have to be paid in full before I deliver. You can come see.”

“I am selling a mostly Original 1943 Ford GPW WWII Jeep. It Has matching Frame and Tub Data plate numbers (109596) The Block Is a GPW Block and the Head is a Willys. Everything Seems to be original ford and most parts have “f” script markings. The engine is stuck but I have been soaking the cylinders for a month or so. The T-84 transmission and D18 Transfercase seem to be in good shape. The axles appear to be original and there are Dualamatic Locking hubs on the front.You can shift through all gears.

The top has no marking and I don’t know anything about it. It comes with five 15″ wheels that have had the center torched open. It also comes with two 16″ jeep wheels with NDT tires. The original gas tank is missing and there is a non original tank in the back. The tub has some dents and holes in it (bullet holes) there is some rust in the floors and some on the sides as seen in the pictures, but is in decent shape for it age. The front frame horns were extended to fit a large PTO winch but the winch is no longer there. It has a Koenig model 10 single speed PTO mounted to the back of the transfer case. I do not have a title for it.”

1945 GPW Body Novato, CA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $800.

Seller has some other parts, too.

“Up for sale is an original 1945 Ford GPW Jeep tub. This is a solid tub to be used in your WWII jeep restoration. The tub is left over from a series of different projects over the years. The tub is in decent shape. The dash is uncut. It does have some rot in the fuel tank well and in the back floor. All very typical for any jeep that is over 70yrs old. This is old American steel, and will actually line up with your original jeep frame, Unlike a repop “MD Wrong”. I will throw in fenders and hood in for an even $1K. Give me a call. This is a fair price and will not sell for less. I have many other parts for sale. Just ask.”

“Up for sale is a 1944 Ford GPW Jeep. Needs a lot of work. Project vehicle.
It was inherited from family member who passed away. Unfortunately this means we don’t know a ton about the jeep, just that Grandpa used to drive it around his property and in the parades in local towns. It was his pride and joy, a replica of the same jeep he drove in Vietnam as a mail man in the army. It was his passion vehicle and hopefully it can be someone elses as well!
We have videos of the car running if you would like to see them just let us know in an email.
Currently on non-op status with DMV. Pink slip in hand

Here is some info from a Willys enthusiast that viewed the 44′-
“FYI: It appears what you have is a WWII chassis and front clips (fenders/grille/hood) with a CJ-2A or CJ-3A body. In addition, the steps on the body have been modified and the drain holes on the sides have been filled. The rear of a 2A and 3A body should have a tailgate, but it appears to be filled in on this one. The windshield is aftermarket or from an M-38. The front and rear bumpers have been modified. The rims looks to be a from a 2A or 3A, but aren’t WWII. “

“I’ll start this description with that this Jeep is a project and will require a rebuild / restoration to make this vehicle street worthy.

* CJ2A motor that runs pretty well with good oil pressure.
* T84 transmission that does work, But doesn’t go into first gear every time you try. Definitely has wear.
* Shifts in and out of 4 wheel drive fine.
The body is rough, no doubt about it. There is lots of body filler all over. The pictures tell all.
The frame is broken to the rear of the rear spring shackles on both sides, shown in the photos. Can be repaired.
