Year? Flattie Panama City, FL GovDeals Auction


Buz forwarded this flattie project. My guess was this had a replacement body, but the MB/GPW fenders make me wonder if the body is an original body as well. The chassis appears to be CJ.

This is a jeep that was reconstructed from different jeeps according to the previous owner. This Jeep comes with a Bill Of Sale Only. The Jeep cranks over but needs timing. Please contact Andrew Kelly at the number listed below if you have any questions regarding this item. Item is being sold As-Is. Great project for somebody.”

1945 GPW Garland, WA $1200


Ran when parked.

1945 Willys Jeep. 
This is an awesome little jeep. It was made during the WWII era, but never was shipped over seas. These jeeps will climb anything and are rare and hard to find.

Needs a transfer case, engine ran when it was parked over 20 yrs ago. Requires plenty of work, but has all the pieces with it. I only have a bill of sale

Will trade for guns, may consider other things. 
1200 Or Best Offer. Cash talks.

Another GPW Saved ….


1943 GPW before its restoration.


1943 GPW after its restoration.

Here’s a 1943 GPW that I featured on eWillys back in 2010. It was rough and had a funky windshield. I was sure it was headed for a car crusher.

Instead, someone bought this off of ebay and restored it! Mario, now the proud owner, purchased this from the rebuilder and was looking through eWillys when he stumbled upon the original post from 2010. So, here’s the original post on eBay, plus the after photos. If anyone knows any more history about this GPW, please let Mario know by commenting below the post. Thanks!

“Up for auction is a 1943 Military syle Ford Jeep.  Once owned by Edward White who I was told was a Military Commander.  Clean Title. Vehicle has been sitting for a number of years and is in need of full restore.  Engine has been pulled and disassembled but looks to be complete and comes with Vehicle.  Drivers side has a couple bullet holes for authenticity.  Body has rust but can be replaced with reproduction style, which can be purchased online.  Engine may be able to be rebuilt however I was told you can purchase military surplus crate motor but haven’t researched enough to tell you where.  Engine number on Title matches number etched on block ( GPW98036 )while the engine casting number is GPW-6015.”

1942 GPW Gilmanton, NH $8000


It’s a solid GPW, but isn’t entirely stock. The jeep includes an air suspension.

Posting my 1942 ford GPW in excellent condition. Military predecessor to the Willys jeep cj2a Purchased several years ago from a body shop owner in Maine who restored it. It is in excellent condition. Some improvements are the 12v conversion, and air suspension set up. You can ad air to raise/ lower the ride height. Also makes for a very comfortable ride. The paint (dark green) makes it look like civilian, and the floor has been replaced with diamond plate steel along time ago. Would not take much to get it back to military condition. It starts and drives fine. 4wd hi/lo work as they should. I have only driven it in parades and occasionally around the neighborhood since I have owned it. The jeep is in good as condition (although civilian style) as it could be with a perfect paint job and no rust at all. It is garaged and covered 100% of the time. My intention was to return to military style, but i have too many toys to give this one the attention it deserves. I never registered it this year, but I will soon and get a sticker so you know it will pass.”

He is not “giving away” anything, but is very reasonably priced. He has quite a stockpile of great parts!”

Original Post (06/12/2014): Lots of stuff here. The jeep looks like it could use some work.

I plan on attending the Military Swap Meet in late August there in Effingham. Will be bringing fenders, grills, axles, small parts, etc. Is there any interest in these large hard to load items?? Tubs, frames, axles, etc. ??? ALL WW2 Military Jeep original parts.”

1945 GPW Glendale, AZ $6000


Runs and drives, but needs some TLC.

For your consideration, a WW2 jeep, a Ford GPW, DOD 6/11/1945. This is a running vehicle, licensed and clear title, but needs some TLC, of course. It has matching serial numbers of engine, body, and frame. The engine is a recent rebuild with about 100 miles on it. The body is in fair shape and has many F marked parts. The bumper is not original and the rare crossmember is missing. It has been converted to 12 volt key start, and has an upgrade T-90 transmission. It has turn signals, hazards, seat belts, and an electric WS wiper for the driver side. It has aftermarket vinyl top and doors. The jeep has been outfitted with 11″ brakes and Rancho springs and shocks. There is a new master cylinder, new left wheel cylinder, new flexible left brake line. The fuel system has an original fuel tank, boiled out and relined, new fuel line with additional fuel filter inline, new fuel pump, rebuilt original Carter W-O carburetor. The air filter has been overhauled. The front seats are overstuffed naugahyde. It could probably use new tires soon. It can be a candidate for retro to original WW2 configuration, or continue with what you have. “
