1942 GPW Remanufacture

Post by 1979WagoneerLTD » Sat Nov 21, 2020 8:36 am

Hello group,

As some know from the photo thread, I have acquired a 1942 GPW, #72320 (body GPW-style without numbers, tag/frame match, engine #RJ292688 Willys Industrial). The unit was at the Allison Steel depot 7/45, and has been with one family since the 50's. I was removed from dark storage after 40 years.

This thread will aim to document the assessment, disassembly, cataloging, components, and reassembly. Please follow along!

Lance
