Back to the topic at hand....it seems that this GP has an incorrect speedometer and gauge cluster? I thought GP’s had 0-100 mph Walthams?

IMHO No apology is needed or called for in Yorkshireman's statement. I think that his opinion was right on.

Yes Michael O you are correct the speedo cluster is incorrect but easily fixed. Nice GP

The problem is other members have been banned for saying much less. If the rules are more relaxed now then maybe I won’t be so cordial or diplomatic in some of my posts! Can we call it the Chris Hirst rule? Moderators, what do you think? Game on?

I just like to say containers are not as cheap as you think when you had insurance to cover the contents, there is also the customs taxes this side and fees to move the container about, just my five pence worth all the best with the sale on GP

I don’t doubt your statement but when you can still profit £5,000, £6,000, £7,000 or more per jeep it’s still well worth the “trouble”.

Good day Michael. I have no Idea what the Moderators are or were thinking when they have banned some other people from the Forum. I would think It would have been from constant badgering or inciting discontent with other posters. And usually from repeated infractions from which they have been warned. I think that Yorkshireman was only orating his true feelings (which I agree with especially when you look at some of Mark's past blabbing about prices in the UK and or Europe). These amateurish unprofessional babblings of price's on vehicles and parts just for the sake sounding like you know what your talking about drives up the price on both sides of the pond. Though the phrase Idiot might seem harsh, sometimes you just have to call it like it appears.
Here again IMHO.

Roger for the true guys that are in this for the love of the hobby,this does put prices up on both side parts and jeeps,all I can say is looking at jeeps that are for sale in the UK with high prices don’t seem to sale very easy and when they do sale it makes me wonder what they did sale for, not the original price I guess, all the best Danny

The market in Europe for prototypes may be a little higher, but the potential buyers are a very little hroup.
Don’t forget that while the « Jeep » has a huge emotional and historical bond with Europe, the prototypes are an exotic thing here, almost unseen on period pictures.

On the 50/60k€ range, the serious collector will also have access to mich more impressive MVs like Half-Tracks, M8, m20s.....or to german vehicles like side-cars, kettenkrads, kübel and even maybe typ166, which are a lot more iconic here.

Guys, lets have no more falling out. We are all grown men on here who share the same passion for our hobby. We all have opinions, and by the amount of members on here, there is a lot of them. This site is aimed to help each other, and yes i am grateful for the help i have recieved in the past. Also i dont want to see any jeep lover banned from this site. So lets forget about this and get on with it. And i wont mention European prices again.

It looks like a very nice GP. Good luck with the sale. I am sure there will be a happy new owner.
