1943 GPW Powder Springs, GA $4000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/13/2021) It’s rusty, but there still may be some useful parts (whether it is $4000 of useful parts is less clear).

https://atlanta.craigslist.org/wat/pts/d/marietta-1943-willys-mb-ww2-jeep/7313742605.html

“War hero. serial number starts with 20 followed by a 2 or 3 . the rest is not legible. that means it is a early 43. Very Rusty. Needs tub pans front and back. Missing back seat and front seats are toast. As the pictures show it has a lot of original ww2 stuff on it. If you don’t know what this is, then please don’t ask a lot of questions. If you aren’t somebody who builds these then you should look for less of a project. Pictures are clear. It rolls.”

Year? GPW Kennewick, WA $1100

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Price dropped to $1100.

(04/28/2021) It’s supposed to include four combat rims, so there may be value here.

https://kpr.craigslist.org/cto/d/richland-ww2-willys-mb-jeep/7325960760.html

“WW2 Jeep rough, disassembled, modified, fairly complete, no title. Bill of sale only. I was told it’s a Ford GPW, but may be a Willys. Frame is boxed and reinforced for 289 Ford V8 engine transplant. 289 is included, condition unknown, plus adapter to Jeep transmission. A WW2 Jeep expert told me the axles, transmission, and transfer case are postwar. But, has 4 original combat rims. Dash and firewall have many non-stock holes. One seat only. Includes top bows, windshield, diamond plate running boards, most of the gauges. I have boxes of parts that go with it. Great project Jeep: I don’t have time and need the space. I got this from the high school friend of the guy who modified it, and he said it was a holy terror for burning rubber.”

“*Title is not usable, was filled out but never taken to license bureau* Rolling chassis project Ford GPW. This is an authentic WWII Jeep. Has enough there to be a restoration project, but could also be a restomod.

Paperwork shows it came from Kettering, Ohio in 1980, then went to Indianapolis, IN. In 1994 it was sold at public auction. Has the true GPW frame with square radiator crossmember. The serial number on the title is GPW10723 which puts it at early 1942, but the body number is 208184 which is post 1943. Original drivetrain is missing and both axles are simply housings – no shafts or pinions. Body and frame have their fair share of patches as shown in the photos.”

1945 MB/GPW Prairie Village, KS $20,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

This 1945 MB was rebuilt in 2012. Unfortunately, it seems to be a mix of parts (GPW body and MB frame for example). Also, it seems the parking brake equipment was not installed.

https://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/d/prairie-village-1945-willys-jeep/7294787467.html

“Documents list all the work that was done when it was restored in 2012, at a total of $22,566. I love this jeep but unfortunately I will be moving across the country in the next year and don’t have options for storage. Someone else will enjoy it!

Odometer 96,930 (no more than 25 miles have been put on it since the engine was redone.”

“1942 Willys MB Jeep built 1/8/1942. The serial # is 110515, frame # 110515, engine # MB595247. This Jeep was restored 18 years ago and driven 20 miles since. The Jeep has the original metal and Tub with some rust in the forward hat channel and a dent behind the passengers seat (see photos). The engine starts easily and runs very well, the transmission works as it should. The transfer case works correctly but is dripping some oil. All gauges work except the fuel gauge. The tires are as new and the brakes are very good. All electrical is working except the horn. Correct dish wheels. This Jeep has the correct steering wheel, the later WWII jeeps had the steel spoke wheels to save rubber.
This is a good looking and good driving 42 MB.”

GPW JeepRod Cranford, NJ $10,000

No title.

“I’ve decided to sell my “flat rod” It’s a Ford GPW body, M38 frame with a rebuilt 302 and a C4 trans. Scout II front end with GM truck outers, Dodge truck rear end. I’ve got a lot of build pics on some Facebook groups. It’s all wired, starts, runs and moves, needs front shocks (I was trying to decide between friction and tube) and some minor finishing work, check everything’s tight, etc… Gauges, lights, signals, and horn all work. I don’t have a title but have a line on one through a guy from Washington state. Depending on where you are you might not need one. I know I’ll never get out what I put in but I’m thinking $10k obo if anyone’s interested.”

“1942 Willys / Ford GPW Jeep.
The Jeep is registered and I have the pink slip in hand.
The jeep starts and drives although it needs a new clutch plate, the clutch is slipping. The engine is a post war engine. I cannot see any numbers on the frame, I did not want to remove the paint looking for them. The combat rims and tires are not being sold with the jeep, I have other rims and tires to replace them for transport. I am selling the jeep to finance a rebuild I am doing on a Willys MB.

1944 GPW Prescott Valley, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,000.

Joe in Mesa’s friend Vern is selling his GPW. Joe reports that Vern, whose father was in the OSS, is a history buff who knows his stuff, so this should be a pretty accurate GPW. Why only $14K? Well in addition to the light harness needing to be installed, the transmission leaks (don’t they ALL?) and that bothers him. He thinks it should be pulled out and re-gasketed.

“1944 GPW, Everything is correctly F marked. No aftermarket parts, New Firestone tires, New highend wiring harness, Lights need to be wired and connected. The kit for that comes with it. Arizona title. When all is said and [done] it’s a really nice jeep; runs very well, can’t think of too many problems with it. Asking 14K. Firm.”
