1945 Flattie Portland, OR $700


UPDATE:  Price dropped to $700.

(09/05/2012) This was a 1945 GPW, but it now has a CJ-2A body and some other mods, including some Desert Dogs.

“$700 OBO.  The value here is in the parts. It does not run and will take a lot to get it running.
It pretty much needs everything gone through or rebuilt to get it street worthy again.

The Jeep is titled as a 45 Ford Jeep, but it doesn’t look like there is much left of a 45.
Body is 2A, frame is 48 or newer.

This was going to be a project but just too much for me to tackle. The motor has two cylinders that are rusty and I don’t have the
time or resources to pull the motor and rebuild it. There are some good parts on this Jeep that someone will want.

MB Grill
T 84 Transmission (Needs Rebuilt)
WW2 water pump undrilled
WW2 carb (maybe)

Buyer must take it all. I will not part it out. Trades considered, unless I get too many calls with people offering me garbage…..

Call or text Dan at five zero three – 380 – nine three six six”

The front seat cushions are not new- there were on it when I got it. It had a new wiring system an all lights and horn work perfectly.The beauty of this jeep is the original data plates – often missing and the original hood number – often sandblasted off or painted over.”

1945 GPW Lewisburg, WV **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was  on eBay

(05/18/2012) Nice looking jeep though.  There is another rolling chassis behind it, too.

“I have known this jeep since 1971. High school friend of mine drove it when we worked at Kroger’s (1971-1974), he drove it to High School. I rode in this Jeep many times when I was younger. His family owned it from the late 1950’s until my Dad bought it around 1998-2001. Body, motor and all major parts are original to this jeep. My friend’s dad bought it from the WV Dept of Highways Surplus sale in the late 1950’s-early 1960’s and used it on his farm. When he bought it, “Corry Naval Base” was stenciled on the cowl, this is how it was when the State of WV received it after the war. I believe this Naval Base is in Florida(Pensacola I believe). I have receipts of paint and body work alone, that total over $16,000…not counting other work, that was done to the jeep.”

1942 GPW Charlotte, NC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was listed at $7000.

“I have a WW2 1942 Ford GPW for sale. The overall condition is good but this is a restoration vehicle not a turn key. The engine and most other components were rebuilt last year and it was running until recently when the distributor failed. There is a new distributor include with the vehicle and all that remains is for the timing to be set. The vehicle comes with 2 combat rims, a brand new grill, original gauges, and several other restorable parts. There are small spots of rust but nothing that compromises the integrity of the vehicle.

“Take a look at this beautiful 1945 Ford GPW, serial number 247613, date of delivery January 1945. This jeep has undergone a frame off restoration and is perfect for parades, re-inactors, and collectors.

It underwent a frame off restoration done by me over the past several months. I have owned over 24 jeeps and have restored about 17 of them, several MB’s, GPW’s and CJ’s have sold successfully on e-Bay.

The frame was in good shape but needed new front frame horns. It had the wrong body on it and the previous owner put in a civilian flat head L-head engine. The body and that engine were removed and a professionally rebuilt MB engine with a GPW head was put into this jeep as well as a new reproduction DL Bensinger Body.

Everything has been gone through on this jeep and everything has been cleaned, repainted, or replaced with new, NOS, or repro parts.

The Radio Never Hooked Up So I Have No Idea If It Works.

The body is in very good original condition. The front floor has been repaired along with all the hat channels. The transmission Is the original
rebuilt T84. For a 69 year old vehicle, this Jeep looks great and is ready for you to hop in a go.

Its ready for that around town drive or that WWII Reenactment or that parade. The engine runs perfectly with great oil pressure and no smoke. Four Wheel drive works perfectly. The brakes have been reworked, and all the electrical replaced including the gauges minus the speedometer gauge. The tires are NOS 700-16 6 ply military NDCC tires. The Jeep has a clear title! This Jeep Was a “Barn Find” and was restored using all the original parts found with it! Sold as is.
