“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.

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.”

“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.

“I am selling a 1943 GPW Ford Jeep that has been in a dry storage for 5 years and doesn’t start at this time from sitting and the carburetor probably needs rebuilding. Engine and transmission have less than 1K miles on them since they were rebuilt in the late 1990’s. It has a new wiring harness, the rear drive shaft has been replaced, all U joints replaced and brake system has been rebuilt.

The tires are in good shape and not flat, the Jeep has the original combat rims, fuel tank was replaced when the engine was rebuilt. It is equipped with original accessories and everything in the photos are included, no other spare parts are available. It does have the elusive “F” marked pintle hook. 99% of the parts are “F” marked. It is not currently registered at this time so it will need to be trailed home and the title is clean. $10,000 FIRM and I will only accept CASH.”
