“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! ”

“1943 Ford gpw Army Jeep with option for Bantam trailer. It has a Buick 225 V6 with Warren Overdrive and rear posi with front power lock differentials. Full cage roll bar gas and Tire rack on rear.

(03/25/2017) Jim spotted this one. It last ran in 1991. I don’t see a Ford script, so this is likely a later model.
“Rare 1941 Ford Army Jeep. Great restoration project. Has the orginal tires. Ran in 1991, been stored inside a warehouse.”
Looks like a Porter & Reed hardtop, but I’ve not seen one with a solid back like that.

“1942 GPW, the Ford license-produced Willys MB of WWII. As you can see, this GPW is well-restored but the work is about 13 years old. It has been well-stored and used monthly for re-enactments and living history events. The restoration was frame-off. Engine idles smoothly and maintains 30 lbs oil pressure. The jeep drives very nice. Frame and original data plate match title, but the engine is a later war GPW serial number. There is some minor corrosion around various parts/pieces which is visible in photographs. Mileage is an estimate. There are a number of extra items that come with the jeep, parts and accessories, and we will show those to prospective buyers when meeting.
This vehicle is available for viewing with one week’s advanced notice. Weekends and evenings are best. It is located in South Central PA near Lancaster PA. Price $17,500. Clear PA title. Message or call/text four four 3-25 zero-nine zero 37 to make arrangements to view this jeep or discuss its story.

“Howdy folks, Here is my Ford GPW project, parts and more. Lots of military jeep stuff. I have a GPW chassis with a Willys engine. A GPW body, cj2 tub and fenders. I have an original Ford GPW engine and trans/transfer case. An extra trans/ transfer case. Extra radiator, drivelines and more. There is a Spicer PTO that fits either t case. Has a nice clean carb for the willys engine and more parts in a box. I have too many projects now and want something that needs less work like cash. This has a clean title in my name. War jeeps are getting harder to find these days and the Ford GPW is even more rare then the jeep. They go for an insane amount of cash when restored. Looking at ebay I found I can part it out for over 3000$ which is my plan if nobody wants it. I would be happy to trade this for something that runs. I like off road toys, like maybe a sand rail, or a big dual sport bike, dirt bike, Stand up jet ski, 701 or bigger. OR?? Let me know what you have. Worst I can say is no. Thanks for looking.”
Needs brakes at the very least.
“This classic would be an Awesome restore for the right guy, (or gal) perfect to tow behind your RV. This rig runs but will need brakes. Its on non-op. No Smog ever. We have original motor also. Looking for 10K, may consider part trade, Yes the windshield folds flat onto the hood. and its a half ton. Not pictured is the metal shell (roof). we can deliver if needed, partial trades considered…heavy or construction equipment vehicles or machinery, send pics w/description get priority. but cash is best. Make an offer! no text, call or leave message 530 two 88 5zero 2zero. or 288 one 8two9. We can meet any time, loc appx. 22 mi north of N. San Juan off of Hwy 49. Many other vehicles avail. plus 40 acres of car/truck parts. Let us know what you might need.”
Parts or project.
“For Sale: WWII Ford GPW: T-84 and transfer case and bell housing still installed, front cross member is square, tool bin lids are embossed, gun mount installed–no mistaking this as a Ford GPW Jeep. No motor. Driveline is otherwise complete. Transmission input shaft spins freely, linkage does cycle through the gears and ranges as it should. I do have the steering column with the steering wheel; splines are good on the shaft. Frame will need metal work in the usual areas. Body is rough, missing headlight assemblies, grill has been modified with CJ headlight buckets. The Jeep has a nice hood and good military F-script fenders that are fair. Original windshield frame is fair, will need soda blasting and or restoration, glass is bad, but correct to the Jeep as a low windshield frame; definitely restorable. Interior is gutted, only one passenger seat, no gas tank, no rear seat. Back of the tub was cut for a make-shift tail gate. All the brackets for the rear seat are there.
This jeep will need extensive restoration; it was in World War II, vintage 1942-1944, then it served a rough life on a ranch in San Antonio–this jeep is beat up, but it has tremendous potential, unlike an MB, you’ll always get your money out of this Jeep being a an authentic Ford Jeep. No title, sold on bill of sale.
$1000.00 cash only.
This IS a rolling chassis.”
This needs some work.
“Original Engine rebuilt – only 5k on rebuilt engine – needs some work – 3 speed transmission – 12 V system – recently replaced 1 wheel cylinder and fuel pump. Have a new set of brakes for jeep. Have title”
