1942 GPW Missoula, MT $6800


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 $6,800 but will consider serious offers”

1945 GPW Lincoln, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3900.

Seller honestly describes this as a 20 footer, meaning it has got a few body issues up close, but it runs and drives.

“Up for sale is my little Ford Jeep… It is registered as a 1950 but it is a 1945 with a 46 Willys grill (looks better)
It also has a Ford 2.3 4cyl motor that runs great. This is a great little Jeep. I just mainly used it for running around Twelve Bridges with my family. Out of room now with too many projects. Runs and drives great…top speed around 45-50. Some rust in pass lower fender and some that has been covered over with sheet metal on the driver side floor. It’s a 20 footer. Just a fun little jeep to drive.”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

There appears to be value here.

“For sale is a 1942 Ford GPW military jeep. This one is a restoration project or a very complete parts jeep. The price is a give-away if you’ve kept up with the values of genuine WWII jeeps lately. What you see is what you get. I also have a 1951 M-38 military jeep that has some restoration started. Many other jeeps and parts.”

1942 GPW SLO, CA $2000


It’s a project.

“Contracted by Willys Overland during WWII, this Ford built relic is dripping with patina and ready for your next project. It has had an F head motor swapped in in place of the original L head.

This Jeep has been sitting for a long time and it will take some work to get it running again, but everything appears to be there. Bill of sale only, but registering it is as simple as a DMV VIN inspection and a brake and lamp inspection at a certified mechanic. Check out the pictures and schedule a time to come take a look at your next Jeep project.”

1942 GPW Griffin, GA $18,000


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**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

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


“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


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.”
