My New 1942 Ford Gpw World War II Jeep

Post by Fishmansgpw » Tue Dec 25, 2018 7:16 pm

Have been looking for a Ford Gpw for years. I have a 1953 Ford Customline, which I bought when I sold my 1944 Willys MB. I love the Ford, but always missed the Willys. I wanted a Ford so I could have a pair. Finally found my dream jeep. Ton of F script, and aSeptember, 1943 Gpw engine. Serial number has the jeep made December 31st, 1942. Shipping tag is on its way, and the seller gave me the fire extinguisher, grease gun, jack, hand crank, and first aid kit. Just need a decontamination unit for under the passenger seat and a tool kit. Might wait on that as they go for a lot.
