1944 MB/GPW Oakridge, OR $7500


UPDATE: Still Available

(11/12/2014) It’s been in the family for a while.

“It is not a stock motor… I do know it’s a V6. I have the top frame.. Seen in the photos leaning next to the jeep on the right.

The radiator hose is off and the fan is off. It needs a battery and fan belt, radiator hoses. Plus it looks like the passenger side wheel bearing is leaking and needs repaired.

My dad had a mechanic working on it. My dad past away. The mechanic told me he did get it running. I am not able to check it myself.

One side is cracked on the windshield. I am asking $7500. I will accept the best offer I get.

It is located in Oakridge. It is inside out of the weather. It has been kept inside
since my dad got it over 40 years ago.

If you’d like to make an appointment to take a look you can reach me on my cell. I will return your call if you leave a message.”

1942 GPW Aiken, SC **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Was $5000.

It’s a project.

“Early 1942 Ford “Script” Jeep to restore. Super original & rare to find, it’s been sitting outside, sad to say. The tub is pretty rough but repairable and the frame is in really good condition to restore. I have an L-head core motor and a core T-84 transmission plus some other GPW parts from other restorations. No transfer case. The correct Dana 25 front and Dana 23 rear is original and both roll really smoothly. This a once in a lifetime find and if restored properly will fetch upwards of $30,000. Personally, I hate to do it but I want to finish restoring my M38A1. AS-IS with a Bill of Sale only.
Open to trades and will deliver for additional cost.”

1945 GPW Salinas, CA **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $5000

(08/09/2014) This GPW has some mods.

“I have an 90% completed 1945 Ford GPW (Willys) jeep for sale. I’ve been working on this jeep for the past 2 years and brought it back to life with a new paint job and engine work. It has a 289 V-8 out of a mustang that has been cleaned up with new gaskets and a thorough cleaning. Lot’s of new parts including all new wiring and gauges! Needs just a few more things before this can be back on the road; it needs exhaust pipes, the driveshafts need to be shortened or replaced and I haven’t looked at the brakes so I don’t know how they are but the jeep has new brake line installed.

The engine runs!! I’ve ran the engine for 20 minutes straight to see if the pressure and temperature gauges work and they do. Come on over if you want to check it out. I need my garage space back!

You’ve got to see this jeep, it’s almost ready for the road! I have the pink slip but the jeep hasn’t been registered since 1997, my plan was to have it as a recreational vehicle only…. I also have the Chilton’s Manual and the driveshafts that are included.”

1942 GPW Ft. Myers, Fl $24,000


Mark just listed this over at war

“1942 WW2 Jeep. It is Model GPW built by Ford and identical in every way to the Willys Model MB. Both Ford and Willys shared the WW2 production of 500,000 Jeeps almost equally. Ford had a policy of identifying virtually all of their parts including Bolts with the Ford script \”F\”. Because of this, a complete and original GPW will usually sell for a higher price than the comparable Willys. My GPW is serial number 10,100. Simply stated this is a very early WW2 Jeep and the 10,100th Jeep produced of a total Ford production of approximately 250,000 Jeeps. It was completed on March 25, 1942. The date is engraved on the original Ford data plate on the Glove box door. The body, floors and all metal are in excellent condition. There is no rust. The Jeep has been garaged since I\’ve owned it. Have Top/bows. The engine is original and is engraved GPW 10,100 on the block. The Frame is also engraved GPW 10,100. The Jeep cranks and starts like it should. It is a good driver as well. The Jeep has a gun mount for a 30 cal Browning MG. I have the Browning MG which is made from a Browning parts kit. It is correct in appearance, size and weight. The guts of the MG have been modified so the MG will not fire. The MG is not a Live gun. It is for display and is being sold separately for $1500″

“This is 1944 Jeep from World War II made by Ford. It has the original T84 transmission, transfer case, steering, radiator and axles. Windshield inner and outer frame is present. it’s a project that needs restoration. Transmission case was taken down and inspected but is usable and needs a rebuild. Seats are not original to the jeep. Front frame horns will need repair. Have an extra tub for parts. This jeep looks good in pictures but lots of bondo was used by someone. Lots of small misc parts will go with this to include canvas for seats, repro bumper, repro hat channels, fuel tank sump, and many small misc parts. Frame serial number confirmed is 198348. Data plates are missing. This vehicle has a title. This was a parts jeep that is why so many items are missing. No original wheels, engine, gauges seats or underhood items are left. I’m open to reasonable offers. If this add is up then its available.”

Year? MB? Valley, AL **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

It’s a project/parts jeep.

“WWII Jeep
Did run when we parked it.
Looks mostly original.
This is definitely for enthusiasts. If you don’t know anything about these you probably don’t want it.
The longer this ad is up the more information I keep receiving from people educating me on what I have. It’s worth much more than $1500. But since that’s the price I decided on I’m not going to change it. However I have decided that the $1500 is a firm price. I hope someone with the money and time to restore it buys it. Would love to see it go to a good home. Cheers.”

(12/15/2014) Someone can use these parts.

“This is a 1942 Ford Jeep GPW general purpose Willys.The serial number on fire wall indicates that the year of manufacture was June 1942. This is the complete body except grill and handles. Obviously there is no drive train as shown in the pictures. The rims are aftermarket. These are parts left over from a restoration.

I wanted to get 250 for the hood, 40 each for each fender, for the tub I wanted 400, the windshield I want 100. For the four rims and tires I want 40 bucks. This of course is a project, and you should look at the pictures carefully. This is a cash deal no deliveries. If the ad is up then the item is still for sale.
