1942 GPW Griffin, GA $18,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was a sealed auction. Now priced at $18,000.

“This GPW has been garage kept and is about as rust free as you’ll find. Accompanying the Jeep is an article showing where a similar jeep was presented to Admiral Nimitz by the military at Pearl Harbor so the Jeep in the article matches this one right down the year, make, model and military number on hood. There is no way to verify this so one has to assume it is a clone to commemorate this event. Starts and runs like it should. Has a few cosmetic flaws as you can see in the pics but is mechanically sound. If you would like to make offer but will be unable to attend you may send offer via email. This vehicle does not have a Georgia title so ownership will transfer via bill of sale.”

1943 GPW Akron, OH **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

It’s a GPW that hasn’t been started in a while.

1949-cj3a-akron-oh

“IMPORTANT UPDATE: Upon further inspection, research and some expert advice (thank you!), I believe this is a 1943-ish Ford GPW. I have included more pictures. Some just for your additional information and some show the details that positively identify it as a Ford GPW as opposed to a Willys MB. For example, the frame under the radiator is an inverted U as opposed to a tube on the Willys.

The one picture is the engine serial number which is 3059695. From what I have read, that’s not the original Kaiser motor.

Year? GPW Denver, CO $2300

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Seller is listing this as a MB/CJ2. However, it looks like this has a GPW body and some military running gear.

“This is a 1948 Jeep/Willys MB/CJ2. As a WWII jeep, at the end of the war these were sold to civilians as a CJ2. As is common in these years, this one has MB parts (military) and CJ2 parts (civilian) as they used all the parts to put these in production. This has the L134 flathead-Go Devil-engine. The engine runs! You can hear it run when you come look at it. I had inquiries so I checked; I drove this jeep. It appears the tranny, etc is fine. I drove it around, however, it has no brakes (brake cylinder is dry). Floorboards are solid. No rust through.

This would be a good project. That was my intention, but other projects took priority. The body has bondo covering it. The “patches” (seen in the photos) are places where the thick bondo has flaked off. The metal underneath is in pretty good shape.

This has a working PTO winch, 4 hi, 4 low, etc. It’s a project, but it has good potential. Two extra military seats and gas tank go with it (not sure what they’re from). Engine has been converted to 12 volt system.”

I don’t see any full floaters on the rear. The body may be sitting on a newer chassis.

“I have a very rare hard to find original ford script tub jeep. Ford was only able to brand their tub for a few months in 1942 before the government made them stop. There are very few of these original jeeps still around. I have a 134L engine for extra money. It comes with transmission and transfer case. Someone started putting power steering in it. No seats. It comes as you see it in the pictures. Its a full restoration project. Please call, text or email any questions. Clean clear title.”

1943 GPW Tullytown, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $950.

(04/14/2016) Steve forwarded this one. I wouldn’t say it is a “great” candidate for restoration; more accurate to say it is badly in need of restoration.

“I have a all orginal 43 Willys gpw. 9 slot grille, with solid tailgate. Jeep was pulled from a collapsed barn in upstate pa.

The bad: Engine is either locked it the trans, because rear axel will not spin..
Also it was hit on the front driver side so the grille and fenders are bent but can be repaired.

The good: it’s a great candidate for a restoration as it’s almost complete minus the seats.
It has the body tags and data plates so acuiring at title would not be hard.”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3653.

Has some updates.

“Here is your chance to own a piece of History. This is the real deal, a Ford GPW. Not many left, and likely saw service in WWII. This one features a Willys flathead 4 cylinder, t90 3 speed trans, twin stick transfer case, and dana axles. The hood still has some original military markings, and there are still some F script parts. This rig runs like a singer sewing machine and has literally logged thousands of miles in the sierras on a multitude of cool back country trips. The price is more than fair for a turn key piece of history. No offers without seeing the rig, yes it can be shipped worldwide at your expense.”

1942 GPW Visalia, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500.

Runs, but needs some work.

“1942 Ford Military Jeep. This jeep was purchased by my family right after World War II. We have owned it for over 70 years. It has a flat head Ford 4 cylinder. The Jeep has always resided in Central California. It runs but will need the brakes to be looked at. The brakes worked fine but the Jeep sat for a few years and now they are not working. Should be something simple. It is all original and has minor surface rust. My plan was to restore it but life has changed and I want it to go to someone who will restore it and get some good use out of it such as military parades or whatever interests the jeep brings. Currently I have the Jeep at a friend’s shop in Visalia. If you want to view it call or text me and I will make arrangements for viewing.”
