Very clean looking jeep, but the seller lists as a “Ford Model CJ-2″ . . .

This is fantastic example of the classic Willy`s Jeep. Spent it`s life in California and Arizona. Frame off restoration over the past five years to include suspension, axle’s front & rear, transmission, engine, brakes, brand new Pirelli Scorpion tires, new seats, fuel tank, filters, body is excellent. Converted to 12 volt system with alternator. New canvas top still in bag. Runs great, shifts great. Still needs a few minor details. “

1942 GPW Rolling Chassis New Salem, PA $1000


Project or parts.

I have for sale a 1942 Ford GPW (Jeep). It is all in pieces but there is a rolling chasis. This is a great project for someone looking for an early war jeep. Got from a friend of ours that found a bunch in various stages that he bought and we bought one from him. I can show you pictures of what his looks like now and his is worth close to $15,000. Any serious takes let me know. Would be possibly interested in trades of equal value let me know what you have. Always looking for firearms and other 4×4 projects.”

1943 GPW LaCenter, WA $3875


Looks like a good project.

Jeep was acquired for a restoration project and stored in an enclosed barn for the past 10 years.
I have come to the realization that I will not be able to get to restoring it. It has a lot of potential as it comes with the original motor, drivetrain, frame and body. It has areas of rust and missing the fuel tank. The jeep is loaded with “f” marked parts and has all original Glove Box identification plates.
A great project. Jeep does not have title, but will come with a bill of sale and copy of the original bill of sale.”

1943 GPW Rosendale, WI $11,000


I don’t think this runs.

Real piece of history, a real 1943 GPW(Ford) WWII Military jeep RARE barn find. Non working (prop) 50 cal machine gun was added. Engine was loose two years ago now set. All original tags and number on body and frame looks to be all there. Body does have some rust (frame is solid) and body does have some metal patch work, but for the year looks to be a solid and is useable. Starting out $11,000.00 OBO The old timer wisconsin farmer that I bought it from could not find the title for this one because he had it on the farm for so many years. But in Wisconsin you can get a title (not a big deal) I can even help with that, if you have never done it before. I was going to fix this one up for my father (old military vet) but he has since pasted away.
Contact me over email and I can get back to you, I am not looking for tire kickers or deal lookers, I don’t need to sell. I have picked up two other parts GPW that I brought back and need to restore for myself so I will sell this one so I can focus on the other. I put on description clean title because it is not being sold for a parts vehicle and owner can get a title because it is a original WWII jeep and all original tags and or ID numbers are there on body and frame. It is not a Willys jeep but a real Ford WWII GPW JEEP but Willys was put on this heading for any jeep lovers not knowing the history of the first real military jeeps”

1942 GPW Tulsa, OK $2000


UPDATE: Craig pointed out that it’s possible the MB frame on this the correct frame. Ford used the same frame supplier, Midland Steel, before they contracted with Murray Steel for the GPW frames. (

For sale is a World War II, 1942 Script Ford Jeep, GPW, restoration project. Early 1942 Ford “Script Ford”. Might trade for 1965 to 1968 Mustang Fastback or Convertible in similar condition.
Body is Ford, Chassis is Willys. Titled on the dash VIN plate as Ford, GPW. Clear Ok. title.
Flathead engine is not correct, possibly late 40`s but I do have a Willys MB Block, WW2, (was running engine) that goes with the Jeep. Distributor boss is chipped on the block that is in the Jeep now, also some welding on the side of the block. Kaiser Supersonic head. ( adds 5 horsepower to engine ),I would use parts off the block that`s in it and put the MB engine in the Jeep. see picture. Correct Ford Transmission and Transfer Case. 1 seat is “F” , the other seat is WW2 Willys.”

1942 GPW Coarsegold, CA $7500


Mark posted this at

“Here is a running jeep. I have all the parts for it, I believe it was restored in 70′s and I’ve had it since since 1997. I had the transfer case and hubs rebuilt then. It has been on my 18 acre ranch and use only occasionally, but hardly ever the past 3 years. I’ve got an electric fuel pump but have the original. Needs a muffler, fuel pump and the generator rebuilt as well as the original gas tank. I do have the original but it’s all rusted out. It does have newer tires. It’s got some rust on the drivers side and about 6 coats of paint. I’ve been told it’s worth between 5 and 10K so I thought I’d start in the middle. I would like to take offers on it.”
