Found GPW 150811

Post by 501stPIR » Thu May 11, 2017 6:58 pm

Recently found this jeep or what's left of it in a boneyard about 4 miles from my house here in da U.P. of Mich. Ser. #150811. DoD looks 1/10/43. Anyway have been salvaging what I can off it. The original transfer case is there. The engine is a Willys. Frame mangled. Front third of body is there, hood, fenders, grill. steering box, master cylinder, gauges etc. Lots of old jeeps here and continue to search.
