1942 Ford GPW Jeep

Recommended Posts

Hmmm, 22.000-25.000 GB£ for a 1942 GPW?

I can see that the head of the engine is postwar/CJ2/CJ3, or similar, and question is if the engine block is Ford GPW, it's  doubtful. The body seems straight as an arrow, which begs the question if the body has been replaced at one time? What else is non standard, and "wrong" with it? For that price I would expect factory new condition, nothing else.

Will be interesting to see what it ends up selling for, if it sells, that is (Guess the seller has a reservation price on it?)
 

I can appreciate all the work that goes into a restoration like this, but aren't prices hitting levels above and beyond the levels of sanity?
 

My two cents/ ören/ pennies/  centavos, worth

It certainly has a New body tub, later Hotchkiss engine, gear driven cam,  crankshaft double pulley, and a Post war CJ rear axle, semi floating hubs, ...interesting as CJ axles are a different ratio to the front WW2 axle,  be a lot of transmission wind up  if 4wd is selected
