1942 GPW Lakeland, FL **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

“I have for sale an original American WW2 icon. Both Willys and Ford built the same vehicle with totally interchangeable parts from 1942 to 1945. I have been putting together this project for a number of years and have come to the conclusion that someone else needs to finish it.I have collected quite a few items (such as correct tools, military paraphernalia and extra parts) that would complement a project such as this.”

1942 GPW Boulder, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE:**SOLD** Was $24,000

Has matching numbers.

“One is a 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.”

1943 GPW Stockton, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

“his jeep was used in the film industry. It would be good for a restoration. I had put a new gas tank, rebuilt carb and rebuilt starter and new battery. The electrical has been converted to 12 volts. It also has a Stainless steel role bar with lights. It needs a ring gear for fly wheel. I have the part. I have all the parts that are NOT seen in picture. I am disabled and cannot finish. Done all I can. This jeep deserves a full restore. It has a PTO winch in the back. Needs paint and small amount of body work (hood and driver fender). All original parts also some extra parts that come with it.”

Maybe someone can use this?


“Currently restoring a 1943 Ford GPW and bought this tub to replace my original tub that came with my Jeep. Had this tub for a little over 3yrs and was slowly prepping it for my restoration. While restoring the tub I found an original Ford GPW ACM Type I tub, so this one went into storage. Asked several of my Jeep friends if they wanted this tub and got no response, so its going up on here.

1944 GPW St. Louis, MO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500

While the seller believes this is the original hardtop, according to the bottom of this 3B page the hardtop below was specifically built for civilian jeeps. It should have a tag identifying it as an “Arctic Top” and the manufacturer as Metro Engineering and Manufacturing Co. of Detroit, Michigan. The jeep sure appears solid.

“It has an original hardtop on it. It has 4 combat wheels with new 600-16 military tires. It runs and drives good and stops good. Frame and body match and motor stamped gpw. The body isn’t terrible but has a few places that could be fixed. All in all it is a nice jeep. It has a clear Missouri title. If you have any questions please call.”

1943? GPW Milwaukie, OR $100


Seller has listed this at $100, but that might just be a random figure. It’s a mix of GPW and CJ-2A parts.

“’43(?) Ford GPW parting out. This project is just going to be to big for me. Bought it as a CJ2A but have just found out that it is a Ford GPW. Frame serial number was ground off for an engine support. Have tub (very ruff shape), frame and axels (JC2A not PGW axels). Looking at cutting it up and taking to the scrapers. So let me know if you need anything off of it.”
