1942 GPW Santa Rosa, CA $17,500


Looks solid.

“1942 Ford GPW. New tires, new canvas top and seats. Rebuilt carburetor. 5 combat rims. Original riveted brass data plates – numbers match the frame. This was a running jeep that was cleaned, repaired as necessary, painted, and returned to the original condition when obtained. It has been converted to 12 volts. with an alternator. It is believed that all the parts are original except for the front bumper and horn (try to find a Sparton horn at a decent price!) and of course, the alternator. There are a lot of Ford marked parts – it is assumed that those who did repairs and replacements did not worry about using Ford marked parts in the past.”

1942 GPW Waynesville, TN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000.

“VERY RARE 1942 Ford Willy’s 4×4. This (Jeep style) military vehicle was only produced for about 3 months during the war efforts in 1942. You can see in one of the pictures (although it’s not very clear) the Ford stamp on the rear gate. This will have to be a full-off restoration project but with a new battery and a little help, it should run now. It still has the siren on the front right bumper where it was used as an MP vehicle during the war. No title, as they were not titled in those days. It will come with a bill of sale and will have to be bonded to get a tag. DON’T MISS OUT…. THIS VEHICLE IS RARE and according to all the internet sites I have looked at, for it’s year and condition, it is WAY WAY WAY under priced. I should be asking a lot more, but I have my eyes on another toy. Excellent shape for the year. VERY little rust (if any).”

1942 GPW Missoula, MT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5800.

Has an f-head.

“1942 Willys Ford Script GPW (General Purpose Willys) If you know Willys you know this one is rare and hard to come by! It was only made the first few months of 1942. I’m not an expert but it does have the Willy’s Grill and possibly a Ford stamped Willys frame. The engine is not original but starts and runs perfect. I think it is an early fifties F-head. Starts runs and drives great, 4×4 works and the tires are in Nice condition. Like most Willys 70 plus years old it has had modifications including a fuel cell and selecto hubs. The Body and Frame seem to be original and mostly unmolested. It has a few minor oil leaks but you can drive it down the road today! Clear Montana title in hand. If it were original it would be a $40,000 rig unfortunately those are very hard to come by! I believe the price is fair at $5800 but will consider serious offers”
