1943 GPW Myrtle Beach, SC **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $17,500.

Over all this jeep looks solid, but will need the brakes bled. Body has a few age marks (note the driver’s side inner cowl support).

“1943 Ford gpw Ww2 Jeep for sale. Serial number 162829. Vehicle is in good overall condition and period correct. It had a frame on preservation in the 90’s. It was last used in 2016 and parked. I’ve recently got it running again and replaced the following – fuel tank, 6v battery, plugs, coil, condenser, wires, and battery. It could use a tune up and driving. The brakes were replaced but need to be bleed from sitting. Wiring all is in very nice condition. It has a 30 cal dummy gun with a cradle and original mount. I have a beachwood canvas top and windshield cover that come with the Jeep. If your not interested in the cradle/mount/and 30 I can remove it and sell the Jeep for 16500.”

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $15,500

(09/22/2020) Not quite all restored, as the data plates have paint on them a few other issues.

“This authentic well-kept piece of history can be yours. This 1942 WWII Willy CJ Ford Jeep is a classic and has been restored and garaged for the past 20 years. Runs great, the Willy straight four engine was completely overhauled, like new, full canvas package, full set of manuals and maintenance guides and receipts. To the best research I have been able to do, this jeep was used here in Sunriver, Bend at Camp Abbott 1942-1944. Lots of fun to drive and has been entered in several military vehicle displays and parades.”
