– The negative(s) is(are) original 3 1/4 x 4 1/4” Black & White
– Due to the light box, some images are seen as cut off
– Camera was set to the monochrome for ease of viewing – some color variations may appear on negatives
– These came from a box labelled: Sept 1947 – this does not guarantee accurate dating, though it is assumed to be somewhat accurate

1942 GPW El Paso, TX $25k or $21k

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Mike’s selling his GPW for $25k w/all the extras or $21k without some of the items. Contact him at 480 370 8055. Feel free to text if he doesn’t answer.

1942-gpw-mike

“Wanting to sell my 42 non script FORD GPW. Has a gpw block and what appears to be a 47 head.

Original differentials, ford frame and body. Ordnance mount and pintel for faux 30 cal.

Gaskets, wires, rubber molding, tires, felt all in almost new condition. Combat wheels less than 500 miles on the tires.

Will sell at a substantially lower price if I keep the gun mount/pedestal, axe,shovel and canvas tie downs for the axe and shovel, water blivet, faux 30 ca and troop straps, top bow tie downs and canvas top, 5 ga can and strap.
Will also trade for a CJ7 with auto and V8 or CJ8 plus cash on buyers part. Please no junk.

I’m asking for $25,000 with everything or $21,000 without items listed above and open to a possible trade of a value of $10k or less.

The bads: the original Carter carb replaced with solex, have older carb. Small rust spot on one channel, body is NOT arrow straight as it was used during its service but is solid.

Reason for selling, its sits in the garage taken out only for the occasional parade or car show. I like to drive my Jeeps too much on a regular basis and dont want to ruin all the great work and time thats been put into this historical vehicle. Thank you for reading.”

“I got this classic old flat-fender Jeep 16 months ago as a non-running project.
I’ve done a ton of work to it and now it runs.
It is still a project, but for someone else to finish.
The bottom line is I have a clear title and it runs down the road pretty good.
The stock 3 speed tranny shifts fine and the transfer case works good 2wd, 4wd hi, and 4wd lo.
The stock 4 cyl engine has 110-125 psi compression on all cylinders and runs great.
The tub has its fair share of rust holes.
The fenders, hood, and tailgate are in pretty good shape.
