1942 GPW for sale

Post by FordeeTwoGPW » Wed Jul 26, 2017 1:14 pm

Hi folks, I have a 1942 Ford script GPW, s/n 11529, DoD 3/26/42, last 4 digits of hood number appear to be 7917. Based on my research here, the frame is a Murray but I have not been able to verify the frame number as a previous owner welded a bracket over the top of the frame and engine mount when the engine was converted. I don't know what engine is in the vehicle but it's obviously not O.E. and someone here may be able to identify. It currently does not run and I do not know the history. The drive train appears to be complete and it rolls just fine on and off a trailer. I do not have a title.

The tub appears to be pretty solid. There is a bit of rust through in the seams at the bottom of the rear panel near the tailight holes, but the script is intact. The floors look solid except a section that was removed below the driver's seat. As you can tell, a lot of the bolt-on items are missing.

Included is a box of loose parts, gauges, gas tank straps and two extra drive shafts. The gauges in the dash are aftermarket of some sort.

This seems to be a good start for someone looking to do a restoration, and I prefer it go to an enthusiast rather than someone who would hack it up for a trail rig. Thus the reason I found this forum and am posting this ad. I would like to get $2500 but will consider offers if this is not a fair price. Not interested in parting out at this time.

Don't be afraid to make an offer on this GPW. I am certainly not married to it and would like it gone before winter.

Thanks,

Rudi
