Sean’s GPW Project

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Sean’s been making good progress on a 1943 GPW that he bought last year and gives credit to Merlin Hanson for helping him locate it. Sean also managed to find another GPW body off of eWillys. As you can see from the photos, he’s disassembled it and now working on cleaning, repairing and reassembly. Unfortunately, the cold, snowy weather hasn’t been very helpful. Sean has this T-90/TC for sale.

Here’s some pics of Sean’s progress:

1942 GPW San Pedro, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $55,000

I thought this looked like a good price, until I realize there were 3 zeros behind the ’55’. The bumper appears incorrect. The seller notes it has been used in films.

“This is a 1942 Ford GPW Military Jeep. Serial #’s on frame reflect the manufacturing date as well as the title. It is in excellent condition and Runs exceptionally. The seats are torn, but can be replaced with after market parts. It has a willy’s 4 cylinder engine that purrs like a kitten. It has the original 3 speed manual transmission and the transfer case (3 granny low gears) works well also. It even has the front wheel engage/disengage shifter. All guages, anti-aircraft lights, gun racks, first aid kit, spare tire, etc, are all still installed and work. The only thing not original are the new 11″ brakes. I swapped the 9″ for the 11″ because this is something that I wanted to drive around town, and the smaller/old style brakes wouldn’t cut it. I still have the original brakes to give to you if you ever want it perfectly restored. This is a one of a kind Vehicle. It has been used in many films also, so there is financial gain if you choose to put it out for time period movies and tv. Email me for questions.”

1943 GPW **SCAM** :: Was Google Wallet Scam

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: , , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE V: This scam disappeared from the world, thankfully.

UPDATE IV: After being deleted this is back on eBay again. A bidder decided to bid $50,000. Someone’s playing with the seller.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-GPW-Army-Jeep-Willys-MB-Military-Slat-Grill-GP-Orig-Matching-/271384905439?_trksid=p2054897.l4275

=====================

UPDATE III: Mike alerted me that some of these pics are now on an ebay auction. Person selling it is listed as brand new profile on Jan 19, 2014. I see no reason to doubt it is still a scam. It has been reported as potentially fraudulent.

================================

UPDATE II: This scam has appeared on Craigslists. Lance forwarded pictures he received from the scammer.  There are 17 total.

UPDATE: John looked into this scam and received the following email. It appears this seller is likely running the Google Wallet Scam (which I’d never heard of).

I am glad that you are interested in my Jeep Willys . It's a Orig Matching #'s Jan 1943 Ford GPW Army Jeep Willys Military .
This jeep was completely taken down, sandblasted, and all of the rust was cut out and replaced with new metal. This jeep has been completely gone threw. The engine, T-84 transmission (gear box), Transfer case, breaks, steering box, Axles, starter, generator, Radiator, Carter WO Carb, voltage regulator, water pump and distributor have ALL been rebuilt by professional shops and receipts can be provided for all parts. The engine has a two year warranty.

The Firestone tires, wiring harness, spare data plates, gas tank, tail lights and horn are all new replacements and are 100% correct. The jeep is still its original 6 volt configuration. The seat covers are new . All of the combat rims are strait originals. The battery is brand new and this jeep starts, drives, shifts and stops with no problems at all . 

I legally own a clear title, free of any liens or loans, under my name. Not interested in a trade and my final price is $4,500.

Just want to sell it ASAP, I am using Google Wallet as my ex-wife suggested, she also sold her car, without any headaches!
First of all please let me know where are you located ?

I will also need to know if you require a loan ? Or the funds are available ?

============================

This scam is back. I found ads in several places across the US yesterday. 

Here’s one link http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/4178294698.html

1944 GPW Culver City, CA **SOLD**

UPDATE II: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

UPDATE: Sebastian wanted to clarify a few things about this GPW. He writes, “The holes, the slightly bent windshield, and the warped hood, are due to the fact that the jeep was rammed into a tree, shot at, lit on fire and blown up by Paramount Pictures. The hood is temporarily left unlocked to show how close we got it back to its original state. Whereas, for the missing lid on the rear wheel well, that’s how paramount pictures had it.

1944-gpw-movie0 1944-gpw-movie1 1944-gpw-movie2

“The Vehicle:

Meet Tojo, a 1944 Ford GPW. Let us tell you why Tojo is so special.
Although the production of the GPW reached high numbers, today few jeeps remain in their original state. Most vehicles have been taken apart, destroyed and lost through time. It is becoming more difficult to find original parts, real matching numbers, and correctly assembled jeeps. This particular jeep is unique in that it is entirely made up of original and NOS parts.

Tojo is not your average hobby car, assembled in a garage. This GPW has gone through an intense restoration through professional mechanics, painters and critics. The entire process was handled under the supervision of a World War II veteran, who has driven the jeeps himself. Tojo, is one of a kind.

This 1944 GPW is rare in that it speaks to two types of collectors. In fact, Tojo is a World War 2 antique as well as a Paramount Pictures Hollywood movie star. The vehicle has been featured in several films including, “Hell is for Heroes”, directed by Don Siegel and starring Steve McQueen, as well as “Is Paris Burning?” (screenplay by Gore Vidal and Francis Ford Coppola).

The vehicle includes:

1. Matching numbers on: engine, body and frame.
2. All metal undercoated for maximum corrosion protection.
3. Frame-off restoration using only original and NOS parts.

1945 GPW Lumberton, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $20,000

‘I have for sale a beautifully restored World War II original Army jeep. This is the real thing! Not a civilian version but an actual war production jeep! It is a GPW made by Ford on a contract during the war using the Willys design.
This jeep needs nothing but a driver. I’ve owned it for 6 years now and enjoyed ever minute of it. The ONLY reason I’m letting it go is because I need the money for another project that I’ve found.
This jeep has everything! It has a new canvas top hot summer days. It has a new canvas windshield cover for blackout operations, along with new canvas headlight and mirror covers for blackout operations. The blackout light do work. This jeep has all of the accessories: fire extinguisher, oil can, first aid kit, shovel, axe, gas can, water can, rifle rack, and tow rope. The tires are so new they even still have most of the rubber nipples on them!
I also have a 37mm anti tank cannon axle that I was going to build a replica of and tow behind the jeep for display. These are very hard to find because most of them were cut up after the war. This axle is complete from hub to hub and only had couple of brackets cut off of it during the demilitarizing process from the government. I also have 2 wiring harnesses to go with the axle that were used to clamp the tail lights onto the barrel of the cannon during transport.
If you buy the jeep I will add in the axle and wiring harnesses with clamps and tail lights at no additional charge. Other wise I will sell the axle for $700 alone with the harnesses.
I d have a free and clear title for it in NC.”

Looks like a good parade jeep.

“1942 Ford Script tub on a ’47 CJ2A frame and motor. The hood number is an educated estimate appropriate for an early GPW based on reference materials.

* New distributor, cap, rotor, points, condenser, ignition coil, spark plug wires, spark plugs.
* New Solex carb.
