“This is one of the cleanest old GPW’s you will find. Clean CA title and ready for the next parade, event, or trips to town. Runs, drives, shifts, and stops very well. This vehicle is ready for your finishing touches, make it the rig you want it to be, all the hard stuff is done. The body is excellent, my hunch is that it may have been rebodied 30+ years ago. Comes with many extras including two Ford script original seat frames. I have too many vehicles and can’t keep them all. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a Ford Jeep. Available to show this weekend. Please don’t make texted offers, come take a look.”

“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.

2 GPW Tubs Loma Rica, CA $1000 (for both)


Seller just wanted to save these from being destroyed.


“I rescued 2 Ford GPW tubs that were being stripped for parts down in Sacramento. I couldn’t bare to see them scrapped knowing their history. Many of these Jeeps came from nearby military installations and i would hate to see their sacrifices scrapped for parts. I know both are GPW because of the shape of the rear tool boxes. The front glove boxes are different which will tell you roughly what year range they are.

Both tubs are somewhat rough but nothing that cant be welded its just steel and these GPW’s are TINY!!!! There is no title for either of them and i haven’t been able to find any serial numbers. Happy to provide a bill of sale. I know its possible to get a hull number assigned to these as I had one on my 1951 CJ3A. I would love to see these go to someone competent who will either restore or at least let them live on as someone else’s project. $500 each $1000 for both.”

“The early GPW JEEP is manufactured 4/16/1942. Runs and drives. A great candidate for restoration. I purchased from the owner who owned it in Arizona since 1980. Engine has a Willys marked head from early civilian but the block may be correct, not sure??? Original T 84 tranny. 6 volt system. Combat wheels. Gun rack. Some good and some bad. Clean title.

1948? CJ-2A? Orland, CA $1500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $1500.

(12/14/2018) This might have a rare set of Thor Auto-matic hubs. Frame frame appears to be an MB/GPW frame. The body has a custom inlet and a glove box (though not a standard shape); my best guess is that it’s a replacement body or a customized body of some vintage. Title is from Thailand??

“1948 Willy’jeep restoration project comes with a good motor 327 some parts shipped over from Thailand never registered in states has Thailand title.”
