“1942 Willys MB Jeep built 1/8/1942. The serial # is 110515, frame # 110515, engine # MB595247. This Jeep was restored 18 years ago and driven 20 miles since. The Jeep has the original metal and Tub with some rust in the forward hat channel and a dent behind the passengers seat (see photos). The engine starts easily and runs very well, the transmission works as it should. The transfer case works correctly but is dripping some oil. All gauges work except the fuel gauge. The tires are as new and the brakes are very good. All electrical is working except the horn. Correct dish wheels. This Jeep has the correct steering wheel, the later WWII jeeps had the steel spoke wheels to save rubber.
This is a good looking and good driving 42 MB.”

GPW JeepRod Cranford, NJ $10,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), Jeep Rods

No title.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/434954274377439

“I’ve decided to sell my “flat rod” It’s a Ford GPW body, M38 frame with a rebuilt 302 and a C4 trans. Scout II front end with GM truck outers, Dodge truck rear end. I’ve got a lot of build pics on some Facebook groups. It’s all wired, starts, runs and moves, needs front shocks (I was trying to decide between friction and tube) and some minor finishing work, check everything’s tight, etc… Gauges, lights, signals, and horn all work. I don’t have a title but have a line on one through a guy from Washington state. Depending on where you are you might not need one. I know I’ll never get out what I put in but I’m thinking $10k obo if anyone’s interested.”

“1942 Willys / Ford GPW Jeep.
The Jeep is registered and I have the pink slip in hand.
The jeep starts and drives although it needs a new clutch plate, the clutch is slipping. The engine is a post war engine. I cannot see any numbers on the frame, I did not want to remove the paint looking for them. The combat rims and tires are not being sold with the jeep, I have other rims and tires to replace them for transport. I am selling the jeep to finance a rebuild I am doing on a Willys MB. I have 4 Willys Jeep’s, too many projects to keep up with.”

“Willys MB/ Ford GPW… make unknown. Year/mileage unknown. This farm jeep last ran 20 years ago. It’s been sitting in a barn ever since the bearings in the rear axle gave out. This would be a great farm Jeep for anyone with some time and money. You would need to pick it up with a trailer.”

1944 GPW Prescott Valley, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,000.

Joe in Mesa’s friend Vern is selling his GPW. Joe reports that Vern, whose father was in the OSS, is a history buff who knows his stuff, so this should be a pretty accurate GPW. Why only $14K? Well in addition to the light harness needing to be installed, the transmission leaks (don’t they ALL?) and that bothers him. He thinks it should be pulled out and re-gasketed.

“1944 GPW, Everything is correctly F marked. No aftermarket parts, New Firestone tires, New highend wiring harness, Lights need to be wired and connected. The kit for that comes with it. Arizona title. When all is said and [done] it’s a really nice jeep; runs very well, can’t think of too many problems with it. Asking 14K. Firm.”

(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.”

“Vintage Jeep Ford GPW 1942 GPW18221. Lots of original F script parts. Non running but engine turns freely. Engine is not original as far as I can tell as engine serial number starts with J. Front frame serial number is GPW18231 which falls somewhere between 3 and 7 of 1942. Condition is “Used”. Three 15” wheels and one 16” non combat rim. Would make good project or for parts. No title selling as is. Pickup only in SW VA or would consider delivering within 100 miles. No reserve.”

“50’s military Jeep converted to a plow rig and grader. Has power up and down grader blade on rear of Jeep. Plow on front , hydraulic up and down. No turn pistons on at the moment but the lines are there to install. Plowed twice with Jeep. It’s a beast. Took in trade. The guy I traded with said he noticed a clicking noise in front end. Removed cover and said one tooth missing from ring gear. I haven’t been into it to see what is going on. I plowed with it in 4×4 and it was fine. Needs 4 glow plugs installed which I have. It’s a diesel. Motor is a 4 cylinder Ford Has a roll cage. Cool rig for a camp or farm. Well built. Firm on price. Thanks for looking. Runs excellent. Has small fuel leak on very top of injector pump. O-ring on top shaft. Easy fix for someone who is mechanical. I have a plow truck. Just don’t need this. Come check it out.4 new tires. Will consider a trade for a decent quad with plow”

“1943 World War II military jeep. Clean clear California title with no back fees. It’s all stock except for the small Block Ford V8 that runs excellent. It also has hanging petals with hydraulic brake and clutch master cylinder. This is a great little run around hot rod Jeep that could easily be a candidate for a full restoration or Rockcrawler build. Or just leave it the way it is and have a great time. If you don’t think this is a great deal, then it probably isn’t the deal for you 😊  It has all of the hard stuff to find. Nine slot military grill with the stock headlights and headlight brackets. Tool boxes with latches in the back of the tub. Hood without Willys on it. The correct windshield frame. The stock high-capacity gas tank etc. (I will not be available to show this vehicle until Tuesday, December 29. This will be first come first serve in person cash sale.”
