1943 GPW Hays, KS $3500


I expect the seller is offering to sell a title left over from another jeep for $300. However, the ad is worded as if you only get the title if you pay extra!

“1943 Ford GPW with a stuck ford 6cyl. Original body frame and data plates. Comes with bill of sale, title available for an extra 300”

2 1944 GPWs Atascadero, CA $8000/each


One of these was an ambulance jeep.

“I have a pair of 1944 gpw Jeeps. One is numbers matching and one is a USMC WW2 ambulance jeep. The ambulance jeep is 1 of 20 known survivors as they made between 500-800 of them during the war. It needs a lot of work but is super rare. The floors are rotted and have new floors for it and a 27 gallon tub packed with new parts. Also it includes an original USMC marked mbt trailer. The numbers matching gpw has some rust out but better then 99% of Jeeps out there. It has a lot of original parts including the correct horn, front seats, correct carburetor and more.

Each jeep is 8k and have a nos gpw jeep engine block to offer extra with the ambulance jeep”

1946 CJ-2A Medimont, ID $1500


This has some type of early military frame and axles. Floating hubs in rear and axle-mounted bell-crank in front.

“Jeep project Complete frame and body. I have 2 clean fenders but both are same side so 1 fender u will need to sell and rebuy the other side or trade for one. Parts are all clean and solid.

1946 GPW Phoenix, AZ $16,000


Joe-in-Mesa’s friend is selling his GPW. It’s in good shape.

“Only selling due to health changes, willing to negotiate, please make a fair offer. Can deliver for extra fee. This is a WW2 Jeep with low miles, runs like a dream. Very fun to drive in the desert. Recently restored. Majority is original 1940s-1950s parts. Has canvas top in good condition. Military vehicle great for collectors, historical, and the black out lights work too!”

1942 GPW Hood River, OR $5500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(08/04/2023) This could be worth a look. It doesn’t run at the moment.

“I have a 1942 Ford JP. 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 traile”

1945 GPW El Sobrante, CA $15,000


It would be great if the seller has an original photo of the jeep in the box, but of course note everyone had access to a camera in 1946.

“My friend bought this in 1946 surplus in a wood box. I bought it 3-4 years ago. We rebuilt the engine ,trany, transfer case, radiator, all new brakes drives and runs great 6 volt I kept it as origanal as i could I had to buy a new block from Kiser Willys but I kept the old block stamped GPW I have alot of origanal part also jack, pump, hand crank, bucket, seat springs, trailer lights by”

1947 CJ-2A North Port, FL $2000


This looks to have an MB Body with GPW tool lids atop a 2A chassis.

1945 GPW Aubrey, TX $9000


I suspect this extended bed was an owner mod, as it’s longer and more permanent than the commercial extensions that were produced.

1942 GPW Aurora, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

Looks like a good price.


“1942 Ford GPW, Willys jeep, WWII
Make a reasonable offer.

V8 engine (extended engine compartment)
T10 Transmission
Roll bar

Mechanic special
Off road vehicle – not for city driving

Tires are newer, but flat. You’ll need an air compressor to air them up. There’s power at the storage unit so you can plug something in. It should start. It’s only been sitting a year. I recommend having it towed/trailered anyway.

I am devastated to lose this. I grew up with it. My father made most of the modifications to it. It was our fishing/camping vehicle.

My boyfriend just passed and I can’t keep it. I want it to go to someone that will love it and use it.

I’m available Sunday to meet.”

This is listed as a 1954, but it’s clearly has a CJ-2A body. Unclear how much value is here, as this doesn’t run.

“1942 Ford GPW Jeep.

If you are look for a run around Jeep, OK. If you are looking for a quality restoration project, this Jeep is a disaster. It is sad the abuse inflicted on this early script Ford. Roll bar runs through the floor and is welded to the frame. The body was re-skinned. I cannot determine how much of the body is original or its condition. Drivers seat was extended two inches. Look over the pictures carefully. More pictures at:
1944 MB/ 42GPW (

On the good side: The engine spins freely be hand. It has the early scalloped axles. Early windshield hold down, Ford Script, and other F marks.

In addition, included will be the two windshield frames, hood and one combat wheel.”

1943 GPW Kuna, ID $4500


This has an unusual roll bar setup. Unclear how much work it needs.

“I am selling my 1943 Ford Willy’s gpw. I have had this jeep for nearly 16 years. I somewhat restored it while I was younger but left for school and it sat for a while only being driven once or twice a year until the radiator blew a year or two ago. Since then it has sat waiting for some love. I currently don’t have the time or the money to get this where it needs to be. Hate to let it go but it’s hard to keep. Let me know if you have any questions.”
