1942 MB/GPW Allison Reconditioned Gustine, CA **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

It’s not a great specimen, but this jeep was one of a couple thousand jeeps reconditioned/remanufactured by the Allison Steel Manufacturing Corporation. Learn more about the remanufacturing program here.

“Im listing this jeep for a friend: Very Rare March 1942 Ford GPW World War 2 Jeep. This one is very interesting because its a WW2 Willy’s MB frame stamped GPW 6559. As you can tell by the number its early for a WW2 Jeep. And the date plates on the glove box match the frame numbers of GPW 6559. There is a Reconditioning Date plate on the center of the dash saying that it was reconditioned in Phoenix Arizona on February 1945!

The engine is out of a M38A1 and runs well from what we can tell. It was reconditioned by Ralph’s Machine Shop from San Jose, Ca. in December 1976. The transmission is a MB T84. It don’t shift do to 1 tooth broken off. The inside of the transmission looks very clean. The transfer is a Ford GPW marked.

The front seats are in excellent condition and are “F” marked and so are the fenders(no rust on fenders) and some other bolts on the jeep because its a GPW body. Floors have rust by don’t look too bad. Data Plates are original, one is steel and the others are brass. Rear of body is skinned, original sheet metal is still underneath. Gauges are original except for the temperature gauge. Steering box is “F” marked. We believe it has a M38 gas tank? Front window frame in great shape, inner is in good shape except for the inner center bar which can be easily replaced. Brake system is dry, no fluid. Front and rear of frame need work near the bumpers. Please check out the pictures.

He was planning to restore it but already has one he is working on. One of the Outstanding things about this jeep is the low serial numbers of 6559 and the MB frame stamped GPW! Meaning Ford used Willys frames at the factory. And that the data plates match the frame, all Very Cool. Definately worth a restoration.”

Year? Flattie Bonduel, WI $1400

• CATEGORIES: M-38, MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This is a mix of parts.

“I have a willys that was started to be restored a number of years ago and never finished. The frame was painted, new shocks, new brake shoes, wheel cylinders, spring kits, rubber brake lines. Has a military 1952 tub, hood, and grill with the flip head lights from a earlier Ford GPW. I have new windshield rubber and seal, new mirrors, and a few other new parts. There are some extra parts that go with it, front axel shafts, starters, brackets, extra tail gate, and more. It is missing some parts, gauges, tail lights and others. The flat head 4 cyl engine is tight and only good for a core. Radiator and drive shafts are sitting in the jeep. I also have an extra transmission and case with a PTO on it that will go with it. This jeep is in need of lots of work but has a nice body that needs very little work. I have a 46 title with it that was signed so you will also need to fill out a form with the title to transfer it to your name, have had to do a couple like this, not a big deal.

$1400, email or text 7one58five34868
Would trade for good name brand tire changer or 2 bay tool box, Matco or Snapon”

1941? GPW Scottsdale, AZ **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500.

Joe checked this one out. He needs someone to buy this so he doesn’t buy it. Below is his great report on the vehicle:

“I don’t think they know if it is ’41, ’42, or later since the title has an “Assigned Registration” sticker on it. I think this means the title is based on what an owner reported to DMV/MVD, rather than what a true title history or expert might have detemined. The numbers plate was not on the glove box and I forgot to check the frame behind the front tire. Despite some surface rust, it’s probably still there.

A title for the vehicle (but ONLY if you take it ALL with you: he’s had full price offers for just the title and refuses)
· 1942 GPW Body (not Ford script) in rough but restorable condition.
· 1942? GPW Frame cut at the front horns, homemade bumpers, and power? steering box.
· Front and rear full floating (military type) axles and springs.
· Front locking hubs (Warn old-school type – see pic).
· Bumperettes (sitting in the back: looked good… might be newer than WWII, though).
· CJ2A “bug-eyed” 7-slot front grill.
· Decent modern bucket seats that look comfortable and useable.

But…
· No engine, no transmission or transfer case, no drive shafts
· No windshield, no gas tank, no orig seat frames
· No combat rims, no spare tire bracket, no gas can holder”

MB/GPW Jeeps and Parts Monroe, WA **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $10,000.

Nick forwarded this find. The seller wants to sell everything together.

“My father was a very early (charter?) member of one of the first Jeep clubs in the country: the Yakima Ridgerunners (est. 1947). I am 65 and literally grew up in the back of his 1945 Military GPW Jeep. His WW2 Jeep was his baby, meticulously maintained, well-cared for, and always housed in the large barn on his property in Yakima.

Over the years he continuously added to his parts collection, and at the time of his recent death (April 2013) his WW2 military Jeep parts and parts Jeeps occupied a good share of the barn and adjacent shed building. Two of the Jeeps, plus a utility trailer built on Jeep axles, wheels, rims & tires, are titled, but only one is fully operational — his original, mint-condition 1945 GPW. But the WW2 era Jeep parts collection is extensive.

As the Personal Representative of his Estate I am now authorized to offer his entire “collection” for sale for $10,000 FIRM! I have received considerable interest, and several offers, for portions of this inventory, but wish to sell the entire “WW2 Military Jeep collection” in a single transaction, either to a single buyer or a group of buyers, but in a single transaction”
