Jeep History: got from an old man in San Diego while I was in college, from my girlfriends friend of the family , in 1986, he spent 15 years “making one jeep out of 3 jeeps”. He stripped and painted the frame, rebuilt the engine using best parts from all 3 jeeps – so he said to me, and running chassis (brakes …) . When I got in in 1986 is was a chassis, engine and wheels with seat and steering wheel, running with a 1 gallon gas tank made from a turpentine can. 2 Tubs he gave me at the time were so shot that I bought a new Willis Overland in France Tub, and new wiring harness. all parts I added were original (either willis or Ford with scripted “F” on some parts), run in an acid bath, primed and painted. I bought new canvas for the seats and top. I personally have driven it about 5-7 times since I owned it. It is registered as a Historical Vehicle , 1945 Willis (round crossbar on the front frame). I believe that the engine is a civilian engine. Seats and tank is out as I was in the middle of re-painting the jeep, still have not moved on that end. Also been purging the fuel line.”

1945 GPW Body Novato, CA $800

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Seller has some other parts, too.

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/pts/d/1945-ford-gpw-jeep-tub/6720684294.html

“Up for sale is an original 1945 Ford GPW Jeep tub. This is a solid tub to be used in your WWII jeep restoration. The tub is left over from a series of different projects over the years. The tub is in decent shape. The dash is uncut. It does have some rot in the fuel tank well and in the back floor. All very typical for any jeep that is over 70yrs old. This is old American steel, and will actually line up with your original jeep frame, Unlike a repop “MD Wrong”. I will throw in fenders and hood in for an even $1K. Give me a call. This is a fair price and will not sell for less. I have many other parts for sale. Just ask.”

“Up for sale is a 1944 Ford GPW Jeep. Needs a lot of work. Project vehicle.
It was inherited from family member who passed away. Unfortunately this means we don’t know a ton about the jeep, just that Grandpa used to drive it around his property and in the parades in local towns. It was his pride and joy, a replica of the same jeep he drove in Vietnam as a mail man in the army. It was his passion vehicle and hopefully it can be someone elses as well!
We have videos of the car running if you would like to see them just let us know in an email.
Currently on non-op status with DMV. Pink slip in hand

Here is some info from a Willys enthusiast that viewed the 44′-
“FYI: It appears what you have is a WWII chassis and front clips (fenders/grille/hood) with a CJ-2A or CJ-3A body. In addition, the steps on the body have been modified and the drain holes on the sides have been filled. The rear of a 2A and 3A body should have a tailgate, but it appears to be filled in on this one. The windshield is aftermarket or from an M-38. The front and rear bumpers have been modified. The rims looks to be a from a 2A or 3A, but aren’t WWII. “

“I’ll start this description with that this Jeep is a project and will require a rebuild / restoration to make this vehicle street worthy.

* CJ2A motor that runs pretty well with good oil pressure.
* T84 transmission that does work, But doesn’t go into first gear every time you try. Definitely has wear.
* Shifts in and out of 4 wheel drive fine.
The body is rough, no doubt about it. There is lots of body filler all over. The pictures tell all.
The frame is broken to the rear of the rear spring shackles on both sides, shown in the photos. Can be repaired.

“1943 Ford GPW #148149. This is a good project jeep with a clear Utah title in my name. It has F script bolts on several brackets and is also stamped on the frame cross-members. The fenders are also F script. The jeep is in need of total restoration. The tub is rough and will require bodywork likely including a replacement floor and rear panel. The tub was sandblasted and primer-painted by the guy I bought it from so the rusted places are obvious. The frame is straight but will require new front frame rails. The Jeep has a unstamped CJ L134 engine and a T90. The condition of engine and transmission are unknown.”

“This is a 1942 Ford GPW
Mostly original
Many F-stamped bolts
Ford script body
F-stamped transmission transfer case and head with a civilian block.
Runs, drives, and stops
Springs sag, wiring not good, body not perfect.
Bought from the Dragon Man with the intention of rebuilding it.
I fixed the tranny – got it running and started driving it.
However, my neighbor, who is a big time antique hoarder, urges me to stop working on it. “First rule when obtaining a collectable antique is you don’t touch, don’t paint it, nothing. It will ruin it. Even if somebody did something to it incorrectly before you.”
So I am doing my duty to my country by offering this up to any so called collector.

I am open to good offers! Otherwise, I can go back to the only part of the house I can somewhat think of as mine… where my hammer, saw, and torch are ready to get back to work and I’ll have a clear conscious that at least I tried to do the right thing.”
