1942 GPW? Athol, ID $5000

• CATEGORIES: MB

This is listed a GPW, but appears to have MB tool box lids. For some reason, this is listed in the Topeka, Kansas, Craigslist. Unclear if it is a scam (price seems pretty good) or some odd Craigslist issue. Or, maybe the seller travels (or moving) to Kansas.

“Good restore starter. Everything works excellent. Starts right up.”

“1944 restored Willy’s Army Jeep. My late WWII Veteran Father purchased this restored Jeep in 2000 from a Gentleman in Louisville KY. My Dad drove one like it in Japan during the War. He used this one for local parades.
He had a stroke in 2008, and I became his driver for the events. He just passed this April at 94. It needs to go to someone who can appreciate it and use it like my Father did. Selling to help settle his Estate.

New Tires put on 10/2017 Coker 6.00-16 Military Tires
All oils changed two years ago. We only did about two Parades a year, dependent on the weather. Last parade we did was in 2019.

Everything works at it should. Very low maintenance vehicle.

Was stored in my climate controlled drive-in basement.”

Year? GPW? Harrisburg, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5800.

The price seems reasonable on this mix-of-parts jeep. It has a GPW body. Given the hood bump, it might have an f-head, too.

1941 Willys “Jeep.” A true American hero. She served in WW II and was dissembled and then reassembled to serve again in the Korean War. She is titled as a 1941 but appears to have parts through the Korean War as was common for military Willys. She runs but is 79 years old. Her 4wd will take you anywhere. Please do not bid or buy if you do not intend to complete the sale. I have recently downsized my house and no longer have the space for this historical vehicle.”

“A farmer purchased it from the Fort Irwin Army Logistics Base just outside Barstow California in 1966. We got it from him in 1996. It has been under a roof ever since.
The farmer put a Willys F head engine in it along with larger drum brakes. The hood was cut for the carburetor. Carburetor has been replaced so hood will clear when corrected. He also swapped out the windshield to a latter / taller version. An electric Ramsey winch was also installed by the farmer.

Very little rust in easy to get at area. Runs and drives nicely.
It is still available if you see this add. I won’t negotiate without you seeing it.
No, I don’t need help with selling it. Please email with your questions via c-list.”
