1944 GPW Dallas, TX $1500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, GPW (Ford MB)

Includes a CJ-2A parts jeep.

https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/cto/d/dallas-1944-gpw-jeep/6998986686.html

“This Jeep is a little rough but has lots of parts most other WWII Jeeps are missing. It’s odd it retains many parts that were taken off but it appears to been treated ruff by the metal work – like the floor.
The front wheels are the rare two piece which I have rarely seen and maybe the dual rear wheel option they had offered.
Motor is not the best but I will include another mostly complete early green CJ-2 that should have a good motor – it turns over – oil looks good – and has anti-freeze in the radiator.
Not wanting to send a lot of pictures – best come and look at it and the parts Jeep.”

This motor is not orig to this jeep. It is a willys cj2a engine.
If u dont want it. Ill jeep it and take off 300.

I have the inner window frame and a few parts and pieces. It will need some parts and some love to complete. But its already od green.

I have all the paperwork needed to reg it. I have the papers from last owner and i got the vehicle verification already to go. Just need to go to dmv and pay and I am not going to go pay dmv fees until i am ready to get it running but that wont be anytime soon. So there it will sit unless it sells.

Price is firm. And is fair. I may take a trade but id rather have cash.”

“This is a military GPW MB type Willys Jeep project. It previously had a Chevrolet V/8 engine swapped into it and I bought it to use the engine in another project.

The Willys still has the original glove box ID plate with the three tags on it. I have slightly brushed the center tag to reveal the following: GPW 95479…….2 4 30……2 5. I have rubbed a little chalk in the number to try to read and that is what I have come up with so far.

“This is the Ford version of the world war II jeep. Two companies made the same vehicle for the war effort. Willys and Ford. The original motor broke the crankshaft so I replaced it with a 1986 diesel vw rabbit motor. Has about the same hp and gets great mileage. The motor runs well but the transmission pops out of gear when slowing down. The synchro also does not work correctly. The trans could use a rebuild. Otherwise the brakes, tires, and lights including custom turn signals work fine. This vehicle was a 6 volt system but now its 12volt. Very fun to drive. Also included is a hard top with doors and windshield called an arctic cab. These cabs were used during the Korean war. I don’t have the original title but have it registered as a 65 willys.”

Correct WWII Ford GPW chassis with larger steering box moved forward on the frame.
All of the sheet metal and the combat wheels are new reproduction.

This Jeep was being built and was not completed.
The wiring will need to be completed, some peripheral like trailer plug and the paint needs to be completed.
It is a good looking Jeep and would make for an easy project and a nice looking WWII Jeep.”

“Up for sale is a 1943 Ford GPW with “Willys Jeep” L134 Go Devil engine. I recently purchased this vehicle with the idea of leisurely traveling around town/country side. However, after taking my wife out in it a few times, she’s not “in to it”. Minimal safety features and people into their phones more than driving have given her reservations about about setting foot in it again. Listed below is a description and history.

Bought recently from a man in Franklin, Tn. He had it for 2-3 years and drove it infrequently, stating that he might have put 40 miles or so on it. It mainly sat in his large garage. It was professionally restored not long before he purchased it, approximately 4-5 years ago. It starts, runs, drives, and shifts nicely. Has numerous and desirable “F stamps” scattered about. The authentic-looking oil pressure gauge is inaccurate so I have a universal gauge to show the oil pressure is good. A few blemishes scattered, but looks great. Everywhere you drive, heads turn. I hate to sell it, as I have always wanted one, but wife wants it “gone”. Videos can be sent if requested.”
