“This 1943 GPW ( VIN: GPW 101331 manufactured 04/1943) Jeep is ready for off-roading and hunting. Very well maintained always and stored indoors. As you can see from the photos it has a slight lift and larger wheels and tires.

Proper GPW Ford original chassis, body & drive train.The body is solid. Has reinforcements made by previous owner. No rust on floor boards or undercarriage.

Original GPW motor and t-84 transmission. The engine is GPW but the head on it is a later year (I may have the original head some where, not sure).

Rear axle is locked for off-roading. Front wheel locking hubs, low/high works perfect.

Very reliable and fun driver with 12 volt system.Foot starter and all lights and gauges work great.

Has driving brights for the night driving in the forest.

Seats are not original, custom for comfortable ride when off road ( I do Have one original seat with F marking in perfect condition),

Gas tank is non original.( I have the original gas tank) if you want.

Has the original data plates. I have photos of chassis number on frame, engine number on block and more.

It is a great candidate for restoring to original for a purist but I feel that one can enjoy it as is for hunting or going on trails and let it appreciate in value.Restore in future if you wish to.

Perfect if you have a mountain cabin. This thing will go practically anywhere.

Open to serious and reasonable offer from like minded hobbyist. If you have serious interest then Please do Call me so I can share more details on this jeep that you should know. “

“Selling my 1942 GPW. This is a script model GPW. It starts runs and drives but needs to be gone through. The electrical is still the 6 volt system and it is operational. The rear inner fenders were cut to move seats back and fuel tank was relocated to rear. The engine is a willys engine and the frame stamping shows as
GPW 239 II☆
The vin is also a low number 19_ _ _
I purchase about 15 years ago from my brother in laws father and never restored it. The engine was rebuilt in 1999 and runs smoothly
I believe one of the clutch or flywheel bolts have backed out. Clutch down no noise clutch up makes a rotational clunking sound
It spent most of its life in Twain Harte so we know its history back to the 60s. Have some extra parts
