1942 GPW Griffin, GA Bid by Sealed Offer

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

Read the description for more info.

“This vehicle is being offered for sale by owner at the Grand Opening of Mustang Junction Saturday May 7th in Griffin, GA. The owner has decided to accept “sealed offers” for this very nice 1942 Ford GPW Military Jeep. This GPW has been garage kept and is about as rust free as you’ll find. Accompanying the Jeep is an article showing where a similar jeep was presented to a ship Admiral by the military at Pearl Harbor so the Jeep in the article matches this one right down the year, make, model and military number on hood. There is no way to verify this so one has to assume it is a clone to commemorate this event. Starts and runs like it should. Has a few cosmetic flaws as you can see in the pics but is mechanically sound. This GPW is offered “ONLY” day of Grand Opening. If you would like to make offer but will be unable to attend you may send offer via email. Owner reserves the right to reject any or all offers but keep in mind, they WANT to sell so make a reasonable offer and you will likely own this beautiful classic. This vehicle does not have a Georgia title so ownership will transfer via bill of sale. Offers will be accepted until 2:00PM EST May 7th, 2016. The Grand opening features a car show that has classes for Mustangs, non-Mustangs, non-Ford’s (no imports), Motorcycle and Off-Road (Bronco/Jeep). We also have a swap meet and a car corral offering vehicles for sale. It will be a fun time so come out and join us. Full details available at mustangjunction.com”

1943 GPW Tullytown, PA $950

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Price dropped to $950.

(04/14/2016) Steve forwarded this one. I wouldn’t say it is a “great” candidate for restoration; more accurate to say it is badly in need of restoration.

“I have a all orginal 43 Willys gpw. 9 slot grille, with solid tailgate. Jeep was pulled from a collapsed barn in upstate pa.

The bad: Engine is either locked it the trans, because rear axel will not spin..
Also it was hit on the front driver side so the grille and fenders are bent but can be repaired.

The good: it’s a great candidate for a restoration as it’s almost complete minus the seats.
It has the body tags and data plates so acuiring at title would not be hard.”

1942 GPW Grass Valley, CA $3653

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Has some updates.

“Here is your chance to own a piece of History. This is the real deal, a Ford GPW. Not many left, and likely saw service in WWII. This one features a Willys flathead 4 cylinder, t90 3 speed trans, twin stick transfer case, and dana axles. The hood still has some original military markings, and there are still some F script parts. This rig runs like a singer sewing machine and has literally logged thousands of miles in the sierras on a multitude of cool back country trips. The price is more than fair for a turn key piece of history. No offers without seeing the rig, yes it can be shipped worldwide at your expense.”

1942 GPW Visalia, CA $6500

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Runs, but needs some work.

“1942 Ford Military Jeep. This jeep was purchased by my family right after World War II. We have owned it for over 70 years. It has a flat head Ford 4 cylinder. The Jeep has always resided in Central California. It runs but will need the brakes to be looked at. The brakes worked fine but the Jeep sat for a few years and now they are not working. Should be something simple. It is all original and has minor surface rust. My plan was to restore it but life has changed and I want it to go to someone who will restore it and get some good use out of it such as military parades or whatever interests the jeep brings. Currently I have the Jeep at a friend’s shop in Visalia. If you want to view it call or text me and I will make arrangements for viewing.”

1942 GPW Yreka, CA $4000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

“This is a 1942 FORD military jeep 4×4 for sale . The previous owner installed a low mileage Chevy 350 out of an early 70s Chevelle and a Chevy 4 speed . Can’t remember if it was the sm420 or 465 . He bought an adapter from advance adapters and they told him the gear drive transfer case was more than tough enough to stay in place . It was running well and driving but the original gas tank was rusted out so the previous owner built the HUGE tank between the rear leafs that you can see in the picture from the rear . He did not coat the inside and it rusted and plugged the lines . That’s why it has been sitting . It also has the stock axles still which function properly but are too low geared and do not like to do over 45mph . I can’t imagine they’d hold up to the 350 too long anyhow . It also has a modern fuse block in the engine compartment so at least some of the wiring had been redone . I know he converted it to a 12 volt system . The body was painted with that red oxide primer . It is finally starting to wear through and just recently has developed some surface rust . I looked it over carefully and there are no big rust issues or cancer . I didn’t even find any pitting . There are a few small dents and dings here and there but overall the body is in really good shape . It had a new soft top put on it not long before I bought it so I’d say it’s been 4 or 5 years .

IT DOES NOT HAVE A TITLE . Never did . And because it was a military jeep it has no vin . It does have a license plate but I talked to California DMV and they said it was out of their system . They said what would be required FROM ME to the buyer would be a bill of sale and a statement of facts regarding things like it does not have a lien on it and never had a title . That sort of thing . Then the buyer would have to have it verified by chp and assigned a vin . Then just the transfer fee , taxes and either registration or non op fees if you choose .

PLEASE, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FROM OUT OF STATE, check with your local DMV to see what they would require . I would feel awful if you had a vehicle you could never register , but I can’t know or be responsible for your states requirements . I bought this for my son as his first vehicle but he is not interested in it . I’d like to keep it , but know that realistically it would be a long time before I could get to it and with these old classics ,sitting does them no good at all , so instead of letting it rot , which it is not even close to now , I’ve decided to pass it on to someone who can fix her up . I am asking $4000 obo . May consider partial trade for tools , especially metal working tools like oxy acetylene set ups or a plasma cutter . Clamps , vice grips , that sort of thing . For some reason I can’t post pics on Craigslist . I have quite a few pictures id be happy to email or text you though !”
