mb/cj2a Pittsburg, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, GPW (Ford MB), MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

It runs and drives.  It is a combo jeep, but the price is good.

“Military Jeep for sale. Yes it runs! Working motor, running gear, transmission. I hate getting rid of it but we’re moving out-of-state and have to figure out how to move 3 vehicles already!
Has: 1942 Ford GPW frame, hood, windshield, grill, and other misc parts (all still have their F stamp visible); 1945 Military engine (running) with new fuel pump; 1946 Willy’s tub and transmission. The transmission is good but the tub is not in great shape.

Needs: seats; fuel tank (we just put the fuel line into a gas tank when we run it); drive shaft (it fell out when we flat towed it to our new place); tires (2 are flat though they’ll hold air long enough to tow it home or put it up on a trailer); We sanded all the old pealing yellow paint off of it and it is primer gray but we never got further than that.

This would make a great parts vehicle (we’ve been told the steering wheel alone is worth $300!) Or for those that are looking to buy a new fabricated tub and throw it on there and have a look-a-like military jeep to play around in (our plan). Or a great starter for a crazy Rock Crawler.
The parts mentioned above are the main F stamped parts so if you’re looking to restore it to a stock gpw it would need a lot. But like I said it’s great as a part donor or casual military jeep lover.

Please note we do not have a title for it, it will be bill of sale only. According to the dmv you just need to get a VIN verification done on it (simple as bringing it down to the CHP office) and DMV will then issue title and registration.  Asking $1200″”

1943 GPW Cedar, Ia eBay

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

The bottom of the windshield is unusual; note the gap under it.  I’m not sure how that is staying in place.

“This is a 1943 GPW Ford army Jeep circa WWII.  When this Jeep was puchased, it was badly rusted and in severe need of a restoration.  I want to stress that this is NOT a true to 1943 restoration, but its close.

The body was lifted off the frame.  The frame was sandblasted and painted with enamel paint.  Everything was inspected and replaced if needed.  New brake lines and shocks have been installed.  New brake pads, wheel cylinders, etc.  The wheels were basted and new tires from Coker Tire were installed. The body was also sandblasted and any rust found was cut out and new panels weled in.  The floor is new, front to back and sealed with bedliner.  This was not a restoration to make this Jeep look new.  We wanted a look of an active duy Jeep, so any small dings were left and minimal body work was done.  The body was sprayed with the correct Green enamel.  New glass was installed in the widshield.  The seat were recovered in Army green canvas.  New guages were installed, new steering wheel, and new wiring with late model type fuses.  It has been converted to 12V.  We DO NOT have the shovel and ax.

This Jeep was finished about 1 1/2 years ago, and has had roughly 450 miles put on it.  The engine runs great with its new Solex carb.  Trans and transfer case work great.  This would be great for re-enactments or parades.  if you have questions, please call me at 641-682-8469.  Good Luck.”

1942 GPW Lynn, In $1400

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

This looks like a great price.  It includes an overdrive and f-script parts.

“This is aproximately a 1942 Ford GPW military jeep. It is functionally identical to a Willys MB, with a few cosmetic differences. It does run, but currently needs brake and drivetrain work. The brakes are soft and the transfer case and rear differential leak. It currently has a 2 barrel 289 Ford V8, which is obviously not original. It also has a later model (50’s) Jeep CJ T90 three speed trans and Dana 18 t-case. Its has a power brake setup added from a Mustang. The frame and tub are in decent condition, the frame doesn’t appear to have rust issues. It has its original front and rear axles with, I think, 4:27 gears. It still has a lot of f-script parts. It also has a 50’s vintage Warn Saturn overdrive and lock out hubs, the overdrive, hubs, and f-script parts alone are worth more than the asking price, I just don’t have the space to part it out. Has 16 inch non-combat rims. I do have a title, it is titled as an assembled vehicle and has an Indiana VIN. Thanks.”

“1942 Ford GPW (Willys Jeep) Has been used as an off road camping vehicle for the last 30+ years. It’s recently had the seats redone and some misc work. However, there is some damage from a brush fire to a tail light and the top cover. It’s in good overall condition. It would be great to keep as a toy or as a restoration project.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This GPW has been in the family for 60 years.  The owner is 96.

“This is a 1943 Ford Jeep. My Dad, 96 years old now,  bought this jeep in California in about 1950, and has had and maitained it all His life. This was his pride and joy. He has pictures of all us kids in it, out on the desert in Calif, and in the San Bernardino mountains. The Jeep has been in Many Parades, toting World War II,  Millitary Warriors. The jeep as far as I know is all original. He always talked about it being original. He has  had it in storage the last few years. We started it up, but gas tank has a leak. He has a lot of extra parts, hood, radiater, wheels, gas tank, etc. It does need some TLC, but still in Great shape for a 1943 vehicle. The seats and motor, and other parts are stamped with the Ford, letter F symbol. We took quite a few pictures, from all angles, so hopefully this will help.”

Shore Patrol Jeeps

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

I was quite surprised yesterday, as I noted in my post related to the Waikiki VJ Day Video, that I spotted a mustard yellow MB with the words “SHORE PATROL” emblazoned across the windshield frame.  Also interesting is the top on this jeep.  See how it appears to go up before it heads back.  I’m wondering if that’s a hard top of some kind?

That lead me on a trek to find any other shore patrol jeep with a color scheme that was NOT a light blue color.  A quick google search of the term “Shore Patrol Jeeps” reveals an endless slew of light blue Jeeps evoking, in my mind, a Navy theme. However, despite my searches, I couldn’t locate anything other than Navy themed or Army Green Shore Patrol Jeeps.

So, to the upper right is the best snapshot I could get of the Waikiki Shore Patrol Jeep, followed by some other Shore Patrols I found around the web.

Here’s the closest example I found to the yellow one. This one has the unusual top:

From Brian’s WWII site we have this one (google says it should be at this link, but I couldn’t find it):

Here’s one from Flickr

Here’s a different angle of the same one from Fotki:

Here’s one from the CJ-3B Page — this time a complete M-38:

Here’s a ‘Shore Patrol’ jeep that’s likely a M-38 with some other parts  (unsure if this was ever a shore patrol jeep):

Here’s another ‘mutt’ of a Shore Jeep:

Here’s a nicely restored MB Shore Patrol vehicle from Argentina that I featured a while ago:
