1942 GPW Santa Rosa, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE:**SOLD** Was $15,699

(10/23/2016) Looks good. Has been converted to 12 Volt.

“1942 Ford GPW. I have a clear title. 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 Deer Park, WA **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $7500.

Has a few mods.

“1942 ford GPW. Not original but started to put it back that way. New combat rims / tires f marked parts has a willys F head that why the hood is cut. and t-90 trans 11″ brakes new in the spring. Back has been cut for a tailgate. So it’s going to need a rear panel f/r bumpers and welding gas tank lights gpw switches and more. I’ve been looking for parts for the last year. This is from California so little to no rust but does have bondo under the paint. Drives great. May have been a script jeep need to run the numbers. Have almost 7,500 invested. Make me an offer or trade (not going to give it away) could be nice for parades or finish the restoration.

If you have original gpw parts , hood, motor trans, 1919a4 or riffle mounts let me know. May purchase from you to finish this one.”

1942 GPW Pontotoc, MS **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1800. I just noticed it has a PTO bar on the back.

I can’t tell for sure, but the extra rectangular data plate could indicate this was a reconditioned jeep. That could also be an explanation for the MB engine in the GPW chassis.

“I have a 1942 ford gpw that was made in April a 42 it is a script body has the t84 transmission that will shift has a willys MB engine im it Believe to be locked up has a title jeep will need a full restorations has some floor pans that are rusted through”

Original bow frame,engine,transmission and running gear.Original steering wheel as well.has a cj windshield frame and the front horns and bumper will need work.most parts have been derusted and primed including the tub.the tub is original with Ford script on back.part of the front floorboard will need to be repaired as well as a few places around the outside of the tub where it was bondoed but will need to be cut oiut and patches welded.also will need a new gas tank well welded in and I would replace the passenger side rear quarter panel.

I have a replacement passenger side cowl step but havent purchased the other replacement parts yet.I have found the original early star pattern on hood overlapping onto the cowling as well as the “BOBCAT”stencil n the side.Unsure if that is the nickname of the sodier or referring to operation Bobcat of WW 2 on Bora Bora. Full of history I was going to make this a navy jeep grey with black accents making the Fs and Ford scripts stand out in matte black.i will post pics when i get a chance to upload them”
