This beautiful 1942 Ford GPW Serial Number GPW17569 (Dated of delivery April 14, 1942) started out as a rescue from a farm in northern Tennessee. The original body was too far gone, so I opted for a new reproduction body from DL Bensingers.It underwent a frame off rebuild by me, who has rebuilt over thirty-five Willys and Fords and have had many jeeps sold successfully on e-Bay and other sites.
Everything has been gone through on this jeep and everything has been cleaned, repainted, or replaced with original, NOS or reproduction parts.

Misc: All new electric, all new gauges (including speedometer), all lights, all new switches work properly, but for civilian use, original light switch but double pull - first pull is blackout, second pull is headlight/tail light.Mileage unknown, but regardless of odometer reading this Jeep is better than motor pool, almost like it just came off the assembly line. Hood numbers painted in correct blue drab. Number developed from serial number.
The only thing left to do with this vehicle is have fun driving it and possibly outfit it with some WW II Era paraphernalia.Vehicle is sold as is where is. Sales outside of USA without title at your own risk getting through customs. Shipping costs are responsibility of buyer. Will work with buyer to arrange shipping.
Deposit via Paypal, balance in cash, Paypal or wire transfer upon pick up or prior to shipping. No checks, no trades, no scams.The "Buy It Now" price is realistic price, the reserve price is very close to that. This Jeep will sell as have all my previous restorations, don't let it slip away. A great running "brand new" GPW - these are getting harder and harder to find.
