1943 GPW Antonito, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $16,000.

This GPW came from the Bernstein Bros, a company that began as a steel recycler in Pueblo. The business became successful and branched in various direction. Owner Morey Bernstein became famous as an amateur hypnotist and writer.

“In 1952 my Father and myself purchased this Jeep from Bernstein Bros a farm and ranch supplier in Pueblo, Colorado. Bernstein Bros purchased several islands in the Pacific after WWII and brought items back as salvage. Not sure but feel this vehicle was in the Pacific. My Father was a master restorer of old vehicles and rebuilt the engine during the winter of 52-53 and made any repairs necessary. The Jeep is titled Ford and has all F bolts but the engine says Jeep on it. The Jeep is almost stock and the only changes that were made was the addition of push plates on the front bumper and a tow bar. Also lockout hubs were added an altitude meter in the dash was installed and an electric fuel pump. I never found the shovel and the axe that mounts on the drivers side. I have all of the owners manuals that came with it.

In 1953 the Jeep was moved to our summer home in South San Juan mountains just south of Alamosa, Colorado and has been kept there in a garage for the last 67 years. The odometer now shows around 43,000 miles and it had many of them before the overhaul. Our summer home is only accessible in the summer and we use the Jeep for hunting and fishing during the summer months only.

I will be able to get back to our cabin by early May to retrieve the Jeep and it will be available then. The Jeep runs very well and has been used but never abused. It does need a wheel alignment there is a little shimmy at 30 MPH.”

“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. “
