1943 GPW Pawnee, IL $5000


Needs some work.

“Selling a 1943 WILLYS has a really nice rebuilt 1942 Ford F marked GPW engine runs and sounds like a Singer sewing machine f marked bellhousing and some other parts. We license this and drove all lights work including brake lights.
transmission is a t90 not the t84 original willys frame and 4×4 front and rear axle assembly original brake system I put all new wheel cylinders on it maybe brake pads had no brakes when I got it.
I went out and bought a hard top for it from Kentucky a cost of $600.00 you could sell it and use the money elsewhere. It fits nice with the later 46 windshield I have another split 46 windshield had no windshield
military tires and wheels the tub body needs restored it could be replaced with a reman or better tub.
have a set of F marked seat frames to go with it. correct restored oil canister and a few other wwii jeep items.
the frame is in great shape the front tips need replaced I would say it had a plow on it, it was light blue when I got it , I will throw in a plow for a willys as I have one. the gas tank has been removed and another type installed under the rear, the machinegun mount is still there.
when I got it and had the rear ends underneath the leaf springs they just need put back to original position. easy job This a great parts jeep or restore project this is real wwii the rare Ford GPW engine is worth quite a bit by itself.”

1944 GPW Moulton, IA $3500


UPDATE: Still Available. The new pic (see top pic) suggests this is a militarized CJ.

(06/22/2015) Needs a little work, but it runs and appears solid.

“1944 ford jeep. motor has $3000.00 worth of work and parts in it. machine work done by bratz machine in Centerville.

1942 GPW Grass Valley, CA $3500


This was for sale back in 2013. Relisted by same owner.

“It’s time to let the old guy go. This very vintage and patina’d Ford GPW has had many great seasons wheeling the gold country. It’s literally logged thousands of miles throughout Nevada, Placer, El Dorado Counties and more. This is a turn key runner driver that is just plain cool. Willys Engine and trans, also Willys axles, but still plenty of cool Ford Script pieces like the seats. This rig has done a little of everything from daily driving duty to he Barrett Lake Jeep Trail. It runs smooth like a Singer and has never left the owner stranded. Pressurized cooling system, 12 volt upgrade, big brakes, and some other period correct mods. This would be great for parking at the cabin or towing behind the RV. Helping my AARP friend sell so call AJ and I can assist with viewing, ”

1942 GPW Auburn, CA $5500


The roll bar is funky, but the jeep looks pretty good.

“Clean and runs great, but in need of a new home. This jeep is all original, except for the added roll bar (bolts on and off) and that I converted it to 12 volts. Willys Go Devil flat head 4 cylinder engine starts easily and runs great. I have had this jeep for over 27 years and treated it well.

This is a great collectors jeep that just needs a little superficial TLC”

1942 GPW Barnesville, GA $4500


No pics provided. It is disassembled.

“I’m reluctantly putting my’42 GPW up for sale… if you do not know, during WWII Ford was contracted to build Jeeps under license from Willys….history done, now to brass tacks…

I purchased this Jeep 3yrs ago with the intention of a full restoration, time and (more recently) money have not been on my side. Its a VERY solid Jeep, most you find now are rotted out and need massive amounts of body/frame work to repair, this one does NOT!! Aside from a few rust thru spots on the sides by the front steps, the tub is clean! The frame is straight, but will need attention on the front frame hornes(typical Bubba) it has a CJ engine in it currently, but its on its last legs(runs but knocks) had a t-90 trans, but i pulled it out and rebuilt a 42 cast dated Ford trans and matching transfer case…. i have boxes of ORIGINAL parts! I’ve spent close to my asking price on just parts for this jeep, brackets, clamps, knobs, nuts/bolts, engine, combat wheels, repro tires, seats seat covers….on n on….tons of stuff! Only thing needed at this point are bumperettes, rear seat, pintle hitch, outer windshield frame, front bumper, correct generator, and correct voltage regulator….aside from dash guages and switches, its all complete, and 95% of that is original!!

If your interested, please give me a call or text ….. however, if your intentions are to make it a mud buggy, or rock crawler, move along!! This Jeep is history! A piece of Americana that cannot be replaced, and I’ll just keep it

*note* jeep is currently disassembled for restoration work…hasn’t been touched in a year…call or text-preferred for pics! Emails WON’T be replied!! Call or text! Thanks!”
