1943 GPW Auburn, WA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price increased to $20k. Seller believes this was a 4wheel steer jeep. Based my research, 50 GPW 4WS were produced, but were they produced as late as 1943?

(07/11/2017) Seller thinks those tires and rims are original …. this has a gas tank in the rear.

“So I picked up this 1943 Willis flat fender ford built and it just so happens to be model gpw-4ws and that meens a lot actuall makes it a 4 wheel steering jeep that is one of the 50 they made.the rear steering is unhooked but its all there and the numbers are right on so as you can imagine my numbers are going up a lot.the last one that sold was a couple years ago n was in a lot worse shape then mine n went for 46,000 that being said mine only has 95000 miles it still has the original tires n wheels it also has a brand new top and original cast iron 4cyl engine n here’s the deal this thing is old n needs to be cherished n I need a jeep that is trail ready so if I sold it I would be asking 20,000 so any tj or rubicon 4dr and some cash works or just cash me out n double your money in a month or two at auction.i just want something that’s dependable for me to take my kids out in will do. ”

1959 Wagon Hickory, NC No Price

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

Looks good. The interior “diamond plating” on the ceiling is actually thin plastic sheets cut to fit the side panels and headliner.

https://hickory.craigslist.org/cto/6154780162.html

1959-wagon-hickory5 1959-wagon-hickory6 1959-wagon-hickory7 1959-wagon-hickory8 1959-wagon-hickory4

“According to Willys records, less than 12,000 wagons were produced in 1959. All were powered by the Super Hurricane 226 Cubic Inch inline 6-cylinder flat head engine. Combined with the 3 speed manual transmission, this drive train produced a neck-snapping 115 HP and could almost reach 55 mph down hill with a tail wind. These wagons came in both the two-wheel and four-wheel drive models and were designed for strength and durability, not speed.

It is difficult to find any of these vehicles today. For the most part, those that do exist do not resemble the original. Most have been subjected to the “improvements” of a high-powered engine and transmission swap.

This rare example has seen restoration efforts by 3 successive owners since 2008. Each has added his or her contribution but no effort has been made to change the original 58 year-old powertrain.
