“1942 Ford GPW Script Jeep with matching serial numbers on the frame, motor and data tag. Definitely a project but pretty rare with the matching numbers. Missing parts include grill,lights,rear seat, air filter, spare tire and carrier, 2 combat rims. Most parts are F marked. Those that aren’t F marked include the windshield and passenger seat. Engine needs one valve tappet freed up. More we’re stuck but we’re freed up with soaking. Engine turns free 1 1/2 turns at which time the stuck tappet stops the rotation. Have not removed head yet but the cylinders, pistons look good and move freely. Body is as shown and the frame will need work on the front rails and rear. Hood needs a patch as shown.”

“Runs and drives great. You can drive this rig in parades or cruise in the evening. All original look with axe/shovel. Rare M1 windshield gun rack. The tires are original type, matching spare and tow bar on front. Very solid jeep…needs nothing! During World War II, Jeep could not keep up with the demand needed during the campaign, so Ford contracted with the government to make 300,000 Ford GPW Jeeps using Jeep parts and design. Own a Piece of History!”

Could be worth a look.

“This a Script Ford GPW in need of a lot of work. Definitely worth saving, however I’m not the guy for this one. It was part of a bulk purchase I did in order to get the one I wanted. It is crusty, but has a motor trans and transfer and axles. Haven’t turned motor, and don’t have paperwork. It will take some research on your end, however It did come from an old timer that has had it forever, so its long off the books”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/07/2023) This has a new body. If someone wants to purchase this, but doesn’t want the engine, In trade for the engine and steering column, I would consider going up to get this (way at the top of the Peninsula area), bringing it back, and holding it until someone comes to pick it up. email me if you are interested: d@deilers.com. I think the engine would be good in Biscuit.

1942 Ford GPW tub, fenders, hood, grill, windshield frame, seats and modern repair panels as shown with the ripples dents, dings, and poor patch repairs you would expect after 80 years of use. The floor and hood were cut for a larger F head engine and transmission and some point in the part along with some rough riveted patches. However all the repair panels and parts (tother than simple flat patches) are included to bring it back. Full front floor pan with hat channels that costs more than $700 dollars on its own plus repair parts including the drivers side pioneer kit area, inner rear fender/tool box panels. Inner windshield frame. Bensinger wheelhouse pockets to move the seats back for more leg room if desired. It has its original F marked seats and side grab handles. All original parts have been soda blasted and weldable primed. Rerpo repair patch parts are factory red primed. Pickup preferred but could work with buyer to arrange shipping in a crate at buyers expense. Was going to build as a LRDP jeep and keep most of the imperfections. Bill of sale only. Asking $3,500. Located in Quakertown, PA.

“I have a 1942 Ford JP. Clean title in hand. Not Original Engine. These were made by Ford during WWll and were used in war frequently. This Jeep doesn’t run but it ran when it was parked years ago. Haven’t really tried to start it because there isn’t a battery. It is a 3 speed manual. It has a dual case, and front locking hubs. This Jeep is very very rare, yes it doesn’t run but everything else is there. Body is straight, tires hold air, engine and tranny are there ect…. I won’t respond to “is this still available” not in a hurry to sell, looking for the right deal as this Jeep is very rare and is 81 years old. Number of miles is unknown You will need to bring a trailer”
