1942 GPW Tucson, AZ $700

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Given the slat grille, maybe this is a mix of parts? Gotta love the windshield.

“For sale 1942 ford jeep body in bad condition no title has original engine trans and differentials. It ran and drove about 15 years ago and has been sitting every since. It is a project but it is somewhat rare since it was built by ford in 1942 when jeep could not keep up with its military contract and the contract was split up to fulfill the military needs. The windshield was put on it by my father it was from a vw bug it does not belong on it . the price is $700.00 obo if interested please call five 20- four 19- 498zero thank you.”

4-wheel-steers

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Here’s the most complete information on 4 Wheel Steering that I could find. I found it at JeepStation.com (http://jeepstation.com/main/?q=node/18). Looks like Ford built 100, Willys 50 and Bantam 50. If anyone knows more, please add info. This is likely a GPW-4WS.

BRC-40-4WS: American Bantam Jeep, 4 Wheel Steering – 50 built. (62 according to this site)
MA-4WS: Willys Military model A with 4 Wheel Steering – 50 built.
GP-4WS: Ford First model Military with 4 Wheel Steering – 50 built.
GPW-4WS: Ford Military 80″ wheelbase, Willys design with 4 Wheel Steering – 50 built.

Year? Hotchkiss? Santa Fe, NM **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

“This vehicle needs a ground up going over. After some research it appears that this Jeep went through the French Army rebuilding program first in the early 1950’s then again in 1962. This is a Willy’s. It belonged to my father and sat in a barn back East for 20 years. The engine is seized because of rust. It is complete with all parts. It has the oversize generator and battery box between the seats for powering radios. The body has some bondo under it’s last military paint but has no rust through and is solid. Hotchkiss.”

1942 GPW Chico, CA CalBid

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Bill spotted this customized GPW. That rear bumper looks pretty hardy! Is that a spare gas tank or water tank in the engine compartment? How about the three “bucket” seats up front. Looks to have an inline flathead 6 of some type. Auction is at $950 and it ends today.
