1943 GPW Marysville, CA **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $11,500.

This initially appeared as a 1941 GP, as that is what was on the title. After a bit of sleuthing, we figured out that this is a 1943 GPW frame with a 1942 GPW body on it.

“For sale 1943 GPW Military Jeep, with a 1942 Ford Script tub. Starts every time and is easy and fun to drive. Very clean World War II jeep shows great in parades and would be perfect for those re-enactors.

There are some additions to the jeep that are not original, updated to 12 volt system, locking hubs and diamond plate on back fenders added by prior owner. Also included are tool pouch, paperback manual, two unopened boxes with contract number that are Shim Cap Sets, and a US military backpack with canteen. Will not ship and I do not need help selling.”

“1943 Ford GPW. SN 102820 3-16-1943
This jeep originally came from a farm in southern Missouri. The previous owner had it for many years, and he used it as a farm jeep. It was in rough shape, and it was missing a lot of parts. I bought it from him and slowly began to make some progress, it was a continuous project for about 8 years. I ended up having to replace the tub with a late ’42 tub. The front floor, fuel tank sump, and hat channels were all replaced.

I ended up taking the very long and costly road for a restoration; starting with a basic shell of a project and tracking down all the pieces to complete it. The vast majority of the parts are original GPW NOS or take-off parts, but there are some reproductions in the mix. The vast majority of mounting hardware are also original script bolts/nuts/washers.

Everything on this jeep functions, it was a frame off restoration. It is 6 volts and all lighting works as it should, the transmission/transfer case shift like they should, and the engine runs very smoothly. Brakes are adjusted, and they do not grab or pull. Continue reading

Hopefully someone can put these to good use.

“For Sale: Two World War II open jeeps. The two jeeps, both are chassis, “franken” Ford GPW jeeps. Darker colored GPW with body has no motor or transmission with a nice Ford tub and Ford Frame with good data plates rolling on OEM 15 x 4.5″ rims and excellent rubber, and the other GPW is a chassis, on Ford GPW frame, no tub, with a CJ L134 motor, D-18 transfer case and T-90 gearbox. There is no serial number visible on this frame. It has been covered with a repaired motor mount. It is rolling on ND military 16″ tires on standard steel stamped rims. I am selling both jeeps for $3500.00 in cash, no checks. Trades will be considered with cash. Both the jeeps are all rolling chassis and will easily roll up on a trailer.
Both jeeps are located on our ranch in Salado, Texas, about 1:15 minutes NNE of Austin, TX, and about an hour SSW of Waco Texas, about 9 miles due East of I-35, midway between the village of Salado and Holland, TX.
I can and will assist with your shipper, but again, you must have paid for the jeeps in full before they leave our property.”

“For sale is a 1944 GPW. This jeep runs and drives currently and is ready for you to take home on its next adventure. The body and frame have matching numbers, though the motor does not. The motor runs strong and is the same as original, it is a civilian engine which means it is 1946 or newer. All of the running gear and 4×4 parts are in working order and it is ready to hit the trail with the whole family. It features the rear seat option and is equipped with a strap on jerry can and spare wheel so you’ll never be stranded. Even the first aid kit is still with the jeep (though I wouldn’t recommend using it). No cracks in the windshield or on the seats.”

This should be of interest to some one.

“I have a project 1945 Ford GPW in need of a restoration. It’s not 100% complete, but it’s a good starting point. The body has your typical rust, but overall it’s solid. Yes, the original glovebox dataplates are there. The frame is compete, and also solid from end-to-end. Surprisingly, the front gussets, frame horns and rear crossmember have not been hacked and butchered.

All topbow brackets, grand handles, tire carrier, and miscellaneous pieces in the last photo are new reproduction parts.

This GPW is California-registered under my name with a non-operational status. It also comes with the original yellow on black California 1950-1960s licence plates. The number and license plates all match on the title (“pink slip”).”

“My name is Chris Dyer and I’m a 20 yr retired Marine. Found this March 29, 1942 Ford GPW Jeep out on a ranch here in Mason,TX some 12 yrs ago. Bought and restored to a point with my son Nic. We use it for parades and funerals mostly. But as we are moving on in different directions now,figured it is time to sell. The frame and glove plates match. The engine block has a Sept 1944 replacement plate from the Army depot in Texarkanas. Has a standard canopy for it as well. Still has a couple of the “F” stamped bolts throughout and on other parts. Was converted to 12v before I got it. The Texas sun has faded the paint and seat covers. Believe the flywheel is missing a couple teeth but it normally starts right up. It is the real deal. Plate # 9428, one of the 1st 10,000 Ford Jeeps assembled. Worn hard, runs great. Few this old and still running. Here are some resent pic’s. Asking $24,500.00 obo (serious offers only).”
