1945 GPW Los Angeles, CA $4000 **SCAM**


UPDATE: We’ve seen a small uptick scams on Craigslist. Thanks to John for finding this in the Ohio Craigslist at $15,000. I guess scammers need money for xmas gifts?? Besides, I didn’t think the background looked like Los Angeles.

To good to be true?

1943 GPW Chassis Rexburg, ID **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1750.

This looks like a good price.

“(If you’re interested in this please call and leave a voice mail message with your name and location. I’ll call you back. Sorry, I don’t reply to texts. Thanks!)

Ford and Willys made WW2 Jeeps for the military. All parts were interchangeable. This is a Ford “GPW” chassis and has many Ford “F” script marks on it.
It has been sandblasted, primed and painted. It is clean and straight with no modifications.

The rectangular plate on top of the frame crossmember in front of the rear axle is the machine gun mount. All WW2 Jeeps came equipped with this mount.

I built it as a display to show “The Parts That Make A WW2 Jeep Go”. Many of the parts are numbered, a sign next to the display describes the parts. I also marked some of the “F” script marks with orange paint. It’s currently at a museum in Rexburg.

Use it as a display, as a great start to your WW2 Jeep project or as a replacement for your bent, rusted and modified frame.

The $1750 price is for the rolling chassis only. The engine, transmission and transfer case are not included in this price.

The price including engine, transmission and transfer case is $2500. The transmission and transfer case are Ford GPW, the engine is a later Willys Jeep engine, probably from the late ’40’s to early ’50’s. Engine, trans and transfer do not work and will need to be rebuilt.

No title, bill of sale only.
I can transport as far as Bozeman, Jackson Hole, Ogden or Twin Falls”

1943 GPW Kona, HI $3000


Those look like early solid disc rims to me.

“1943 Ford GPW (Jeep). Ford & Willy’s built them during WWII. New top w doors. Needs brake master rebuilt and new brake lines installed, I have the parts already. It runs great and the trans is in great shape, doesn’t pop out of gear which is a common issue with these old jeeps. No huge rust holes, in good shape for being in Hawaii for 70+ years.”
