Ford GPW 78169

1942 Gpw 78169. Hood # is 20185891 after much research. Most of the jeep is intact with minor rust at the gas tank sump. Most of the body & frame cleans up with a wire brush and stripper. The engine still has the gray paint on it if you clean eneogh dirt & surface rust. It has been converted to a 12v system. As always it's work, work, work to get back to good condition.
