1942 GPW Reedley, CA $4750

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Has a few updates.

“Flatfender MB/GPW Jeep. Flathead 4 cyl L134 Engine. Some mods, some stock, great running little jeep. New brakes–Less than 500 miles. Classic vehicle with nice options looking for a new home. Had this stored for the past 15 years and am taking on a new project with my son. Not a rusted piece of junk like some of the other stuff you see out there, but not a show truck either. Come take a look and see if this is your dream Jeep.”

1942 GPW Fayetteville, AR $2000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Body’s been cut, but still some value here.

“1942 Military Jeep for sale. This vehicle doesn’t run but about a year ago we replaced the battery in it and it was clicking so I think it just needs a starter rebuild. I would have fixed this Jeep up myself but I have a truck project going on at the moment. The hole thing is there, transmition, motor, and all. Except for the glass. As you may know though that only includes the windshield. There are some small holes in the floor where I think someone tried to swap the tranny. They also welded a cow catcher grill to the front which could be easily removed with a cutting torch or smoothed down and painted if you wanted to keep it.

The body is in relatively good shape for its age other than the paneling over the back right fender seems to have been welded on aswell but nothing you couldn’t grind down. The seat frames are there but there are no cushions. Also, the previous owner cut a space in the back for a tailgate and they didn’t actually add one but it could be done and it would look really good. Like I said, I would have done these things already myself if it wasn’t for this other project I’m working on. There is no visible rust which is a miracle for this old of a vehicle. If you need something hauled these Jeeps were made to pull war planes so it’ll get the job done. I do need the money to help pay my way through mechanics school so the sooner this vehicle is gone, the better. It’s a solid vehicle and I truly believe it wild take surprisingly little to get it running. $2000 is firm but I will hear out any trades.”

“I am posting for a friend that doesn’t do C-list. He has a 1943 Ford jeep, fully restored, 5K put into its internals in 2013 and never used thereafter. Complete with pioneer kit (shovel, pick, etc.) gas can, machine gun pedestal, non-directional tires with spare and even canvas water bucket. I can answer some questions via e-mail but better to call him. His name is Mike and he writes gun articles so is pretty busy all the time. He said you can leave a message but you will have to wait a while for the beep as his phone erased his message. ”

1945 GPW Alvin, TX $2250

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Has no title and needs work.

“I bought this 1945 Ford built GPW WWII Jeep, not all that long ago to restore. After putting much thought into it, I’ve decided to sell it and buy another one that is already restored. This Jeep has a rebuilt engine that runs great. I’ve driven it around the field where it is stored, but not on the street, because the brakes are down. Although the engine is rebuilt, the rest of the Jeep needs complete and total restoration. It is FAR from ready to drive down the highway. The engine and transmission are out of a later model civilian WILLYS Jeep and not a Ford built Jeep. Someone had cut out the rear panel and made a tailgate. I recently bought a brand new repair panel to fix the tail of the Jeep. This is not an easy restoration and the body is VERY rusty like most WWII Jeeps. It comes with a far less rusty windshield frame. The Jeep does have lots of Ford “F”s stamped on it and it has the original Ford body vin tag. It does NOT have a title.”

1942 GPW Morehouse, MO **Status Unknown**

May have some value.

“I have for sale a 1942 Ford GPW WWII Jeep. The body is extremely rusted. It has an engine that is a later flathead willys engine that runs, no brakes. It has a cj2a steering sector. This is a list of Ford F marked parts: grill, left fender, right fender, radiator, hood hinge, t84 transmission, transfer case, headlight buckets, headlight swing arms, blackout grill lights, bell crank, GPW Glove box data tags, and tool box lids. The data plate, frame and clear title in my name have the same serial numbers. The front and rear axles are GP marked. The wheels are civilian willys. I put a gasket on the thermostat housing and it is seeping. The engine has 641087 –l-w10-a n1-cr-n2 on the block. Serial number on engine is 35234; this is all I could make out. The engine manifold has an ear broken off of it at the carb. Looks like a dj3a manifold. The head has 16h5 on it. The starter is an Autolite number mz 4163 3f and the generator is an Autolite number GDZ 6001E 3F. I am asking $2500 for it.”
