1944/45 GPW Merdian, ID $3800


No pics, but has a variety of updates.

Hey I’ve decided to sell my jeep its a 1944/45 GPW it has the title in my name(1946). Not really much rust, the floors are solid and seems pretty solid overall (has some bondo and lead in it but its not there to hide rust). It has a Chevy 350(ramhorn manifolds) mated to a T-90 with a dana 18 transfer case and borg warner overdrive, power steering and a mild shackle lift. Dana 25 front axle and Dana 44 rear both with 5:38’s. I just did the rear brakes and wheel cylinders. It did run and drive great with no problems overdrive works just fine. I pulled all of the wiring out because it was poorly done. If the coil is powered up and starter is powered up it’ll fire right up. I drove it all over town when I first got it really no problems. I have started a diamond plate alum. wrap job and its partial finished any exta parts will go with it I also have an extra 47 cj frame that goes with it as well. I don’t have to sell this jeep it just isn’t practical right now. I’d like to $3800 OBO”

1942 GPW Riverside, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This “War Eagle” has an owner with some history.


“I purchased this 1942 GPW Ford Army Jeep at a military swap meet in 1995. The previous owner had rebuilt the engine and told me it was very low mileage. I stripped the entire body down to the chassis and had it sand blasted. I primed and repainted the entire Jeep myself with an original Army green color. I installed new brakes, brake shoes, master cylinder, all four wheel cylinders, and a new clutch plate and disc. The transmission was rebuilt, installed a new wiring harness, and had all the seats reupholstered. I had a new top made as well. I purchased new tires at the time but they are slightly worn now. It took me approximately 1 year to rebuild the entire Jeep.

1945 GPW Shrewsbury, MA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Jeep has a front-end shimmy.

“Jeep is fantastic shape and ready to drive this summer. The one issue is if you hit a bad pot-hole it can get a front end shimmy that requires you to slow until it goes away.
If not for this issue I would have priced the vehicle MUCH higher, but am being honest and reducing the reserve price more than enough to fix it if desired.
A fix is not mandatory, you can drive for years as is, just making sure any possible buyer is aware of this issue. It’s the only issue with the jeep, everything else is great.
It normally drives smooth as can be.”
