1942 GPW Mason, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $24,500.

“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).”

“Acquired this in a wheeling and a dealing and don’t have the time for it. Almost 2 WWII Jeeps…..almost. I got boxes of parts I haven’t even looked in yet. The frame and the green body is a 1943 GPW according to the title. The frame has the”F” on the shock mounts as seen in the pictures. An older gentleman started a restoration and thats why the frame is painted and has new brake lines. He also put a whole front floor section in the GPW tub but as you can see, it has a way to go. What else he did I do not know. There are a bunch of extra parts in the buckets and pallet, 3 extra heads, a transfer case that don’t belong, 2 sets of rods, two oil filter assemblies and 2 BO lights and more stuff.

1945 GPW Costa Mesa, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $16,500.

Owned by the same family since 1946.

“Super original WW2 US Army Jeep that has been owned by the same family since released from the government in 1946. The original owner used it on his ranch, after he passed away it was stored for the past 25 years in the garage. Fresh out of retirement, the engine has been rebuilt along with a new wiring harness, rebuilt radiator, completely rebuilt braking system, new exhaust system, new gas tank, new battery, new clutch, front seat cushions, new Firestone military tires and tubes with the original combat wheels. The transmission functions well and shifts very smoothly. I don’t think it would be possible to find a more original and well running and driving Jeep.”

1942 GPW Salado, TX $2600


UPDATE: Still Available.


“For Sale: 1942 Ford GPW Open Jeep. This is a bonified WWII Veteran. DOM in ’42, right on the data plate. Data plates are all legible, serial numbers intact. I do not have a title for the jeep. Gun turret mount is on the frame, and part of the tub as designed. This is an original Ford GPW.

The Bad: This jeep was, unfortunately, modified for a 283 V-8 motor. The front cross member has been cut, the front grill internal shroud has been cut and the frame has been drilled in several locations for new motor mount locations. The GPW tub, (embossed tool bin lids & data plates) has been cut at the fire wall for the V-8. You’ve got sheet metal work there at those locations. The drive line is gone down to the driveshafts. I removed the V-8, T-90 and T3 transfer case that was in it. The windshield frame is long gone as are the front seats, rear seat, gas tank and original gauges.

(03/18/2018) Bill shared this modified GPW. Could be a good price. I love the classic paint job. It’s listed as a 1941 Ford Jeep, but looks to be a GPW, which makes it ’42 or later.

Way more customized to much to list.”
