“This authentic well-kept piece of history can be yours. This 1942 WWII Willy CJ Ford Jeep is a classic and has been restored and garaged for the past 20 years. Runs great, the Willy straight four engine was completely overhauled, like new, full canvas package, full set of manuals and maintenance guides and receipts. To the best research I have been able to do, this jeep was used here in Sunriver, Bend at Camp Abbott 1942-1944. Lots of fun to drive and has been entered in several military vehicle displays and parades.”

“It has “All Matching” serial numbers, (approximately only 1% of collectible WWII Jeeps have all matching serial numbers). The serial number 141204 is located on the frame. The engine and the data plate found on the tub. Mfg. at the Louisville, KY plant the summer of 1943 and delivered to the U.S. Government on September, 1st 1943. The original WWII engine, frame and WWII tub are all Ford manufactured. Later in 1943 the Jeep tubs (both Ford and Willy’s) were outsourced to AMC (American Motor Company) making this tub one of the very last GPWs issued with a genuine Ford built tub!

(from previous ad) … “Great Fun! Has been in the family over 40 years. It runs, has full roll bar, front and back towing. 2 sets of tires and rims. It has been kept in storage. My father told me it was a 4 cylinder plymouth engine. It is a 4 wheel 3 speed. It has very low mileage. Enjoyable as it is or easily made to look like new. No cracks in the windshield. The original serial numbers are on the under carriage with the 5 pointed star at the beginning and end of the sequence. It has a clear title and has been put on non-op as I cannot drive it anymore because of numerous back surgeries. I will miss it. I learned to drive on it when I was 9 years old. I hope to find it a good home. Some seal are dry and need greasing. You can make an appt to see it. Contact me through my email.”

“Here is a 1944 Ford GPW. Hopefully if you are reading this, you know what you are looking at. I bought this sight unseen from a farmer’s estate in Wyoming. It is literally a barn find and had to be removed from the upper part of the barn with a forklift. I had it shipped across the country to NC and it sat for a couple years. I own a private restoration shop and recently got around to looking at what turned out to be a Ford GPW. The vehicle was clearly used on the farm and has had extra holes drilled into the sides and almost looks like they were using it to haul rocks? There are more dents in the tub than rust. The farmer reinforced the front bumper and had brackets for farm implements. It has a tow hitch on the front as well.

The Ford was “hot rodded” out in the 1960s and a Studebaker OHV straight 6 was installed with a T90 transmission. The front axle has Dualmatic locking hubs. From some light research it seems like this engine was made in 1961 and appears to have the original fan belts. I have no idea of the condition of the engine and it is missing the intake. The Goodyear Power Cushion whitewall tires have date codes from the 1960s, which is when the Ford was stored in the barn. It has not been driven in over 50 years. Those 50+ year old tires have tubes in them and still hold air and have tread. The spare appears to be the original “US” marked.

Year? GPW? Harrisburg, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5800.

The price seems reasonable on this mix-of-parts jeep. It has a GPW body. Given the hood bump, it might have an f-head, too.

1941 Willys “Jeep.” A true American hero. She served in WW II and was dissembled and then reassembled to serve again in the Korean War. She is titled as a 1941 but appears to have parts through the Korean War as was common for military Willys. She runs but is 79 years old. Her 4wd will take you anywhere. Please do not bid or buy if you do not intend to complete the sale. I have recently downsized my house and no longer have the space for this historical vehicle.”
