1944 GPW Fruita, CO $4000


It doesn’t run at the moment.

“Need to sell my Vintage WW2 “Jeep”. 1944 Ford GPW (twin to the Willy’s MB). New windshield hood blocks (OEM) and weather stripping still in package and never installed. Wife says I have too many projects going and need to downsize. I did have it running but the motor needs TLC. Great project vehicle for restoration or just building a runabout for playing in the desert and on the Mesa. Willing to trade for a 2up ATV and small trailer. Price is negotiable as I need to move this and my 2003 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE (see craigslist posting June 8th).”

1944 GPW Lawton, KS $15,000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $15,000.

(05/07/2017) Needs some exhaust work.

“I am selling a near complete restored 1944 Ford GPW Army Jeep from WW2. The vehicle has a recently rebuilt Go-Devil Engine, carburetor, and radiator. A truly accurate restoration with the only modification being the 12 volt battery conversion. The comes with many original items such as a canvas summer top, first aid kit, axe, fuel can, and more. The vehicle still needs the some minor work on the exhaust which causes the fuel pressure to drop and cannot drive far until this final problem is resolved, however the vehicle idles perfectly and can be driven onto a trailer.”

1942 GPW Bellevue, WA $22,000


Mark posted this at

“For the past 50+ years it has been driven roughly 30-50 miles per year. It was owned by a former board member of the Reno Air Show and was trailered from Reno to the event and only used to drive around the grounds of the show. Still has the original stickers from the air shows on the front wind shield. Recently had service done on the brakes, oil, etc.

Most likely one of the cleanest non-show car 75 year old vehicles you will see. Recently we did $1400.00 worth of maintenance. Runs great. Would like to find it a nice home.”

1944 GPW Salmon Creek, WA $750


Not much of the original jeep left.

“I need to get rid of my steel bodied, 1944 Ford Jeep. I originally got it as a project vehicle for rock crawling. When I bought it, it was a hunting rig. It has a Ford 289 V8, adapted to the original 3 speed transmission. There’s virtually no rust. Has stout front and rear bumpers and a tow bar. It’s a perfect vehicle to build exactly how you want it for. Very flexible on price. I am also selling a 3 speed military transmission with transfer case. Make offer(s).”

“Selling my old US Army WWII jeep. It’s a Ford made jeep, complete with lots of F marked parts. Willys was the other manufacturer of WWII jeeps and the MB is very similar. It is not restored and appears to have never been apart other than for some repairs over the years. It needs a full restoration if you want a perfect WWII jeep. As it is I had lots of fun in parades with it back around Y2K. Sure there are extra holes, rusted spots, missing parts here and there, and the gas tank is rotted as is the floor around it. There are four original WWII tires, one of which was used by a modern tire company to remake the molds for the WWII Firestone tires. I wouldn’t recommend driving it home, as you will want to install new tires and look at the brakes before you do any driving around on public roads. It could make a great display in a store, or a wonderful project.

I’m looking for the best offer on this one.. I’ll start at $7999, and won’t take $500. I really don’t want to sell it but the county is forcing my hand. Gotta love those tax appraisers. Its time for someone to give this jeep the home it deserves. I don’t have the funds to do a proper restoration, so I did my best to preserve what was there and doll it up a bit for parades. If you want to get down to the original olive drab Army paint, a lot of it is still there under the krylon spray paint. The blue stripe is an original marking.

1943 GPW Yucca Valley, CA $18,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/25/2017) Doesn’t run.

“I am selling a 1943 GPW Ford Jeep that has been in a dry storage for 5 years and doesn’t start at this time from sitting and the carburetor probably needs rebuilding. Engine and transmission have less than 1K miles on them since they were rebuilt in the late 1990’s. It has a new wiring harness, the rear drive shaft has been replaced, all U joints replaced and brake system has been rebuilt. The tires are in good shape and not flat, the Jeep has the original combat rims, fuel tank was replaced when the engine was rebuilt. It is equipped with original accessories and everything in the photos are included, no other spare parts are available. It does have the elusive “F” marked pintle hook. 99% of the parts are “F” marked. It is not currently registered at this time so it will need to be trailed home and the title is clean. $18,000 FIRM and I will only accept CASH. If you are interested you MUST call me as I will not respond to any text messages! ”
