This jeep runs and drives very well. It is about 85% original. Engine has been rebuilt and is NOT the original ford built engine. 12 Volt electrical with alternator. It has a tailgate which was on the Jeep when purchased in 1970 and updated with flush mount lights. That, the brush guard, and the bikini top are the only changes in the body. It has been well maintained and used regularly since it was purchased. A fun jeep to drive or a good start on a total restoration. ”

1942 GPW Pagosa Springs, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: **SOLD** $5000. Now here.

Looks like a solid GPW with one major modification: the steering box. Though the steering looks unusual, on the plus side it’s got a thick (half-inch??) support plate coming off the frame; also, it seems to have held up well (given, I imagine, this was an older mod). An additional plus is that the builder didn’t cut the front cross member when updating the steering (or so it appears), so I imagine someone could restore the original steering if they wished relatively easily. I think it would make a good entry level GPW for the right person.

“1942 Ford WW2 GPW. New cooling system, ignition system, fuel system, electrical wiring front to back, seats, rear brakes, etc. Has an engine from a cj2a. The engine overheated at some point and cracked. Will need a new block. I’m reluctantly selling it. I’ve spent alot of money and time on this Jeep. It is the perfect restoration project for someone who wants to disassemble it and restore it from frame up. Most of the parts are already there. It needs a proper restoration. I’m asking $6000 and it has a clear title. The price is in consideration of the engine work needed.”

“This jeep is a real original 1942 gpw ford military tub hood and fenders On real original civilian cj3a frame and running gear.

I just regd it. It is fully street legal but just like the original its not a freeway veh.

It has a brand new ELECTRIC Motor.
And brand new duracel batterys.

The motor puts out 77hs power.
The Orig motor only had 60hs power.

It Runs great. It’ll do about 35 And it doesnt like hills but It can be tweaked to do higher rpms or have higher torque. I just started messing with that but im slow at it because of a condition with my hands. I will change this paragraph when i have it dialed in right.

It Wheels good and does great on flat ground. I have a wheelin test hill here i can show u on. extreme hills use lower gears and it does good . It’ll do it but u have to Know your gears to get the most out of it. It takes a little getting used to.

“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.”
