Ford GPW 240019

Purchased with MB 484771 under the hood. Great running engine, but wrong pedigree. Subsequently obtained a bare November 10, 1944 (K 10 4) GPW block. This unit was already a replacement block as it had a cartouche stamped above the manifolds and a serial number of 23315, much lower than would have been on an engine with this casting date. Also purchased a February 28, 1945 (B 28 5) running GPW engine to strip for parts. Once rebuilt, the completed engine will be restamped 240019, but never listed as matching numbers. Based on the two closest GPWs in the list, the date of delivery will be stamped Tuesday December 12, 1944 on replacement dataplates. I've been slowly acquiring NOS and take-off parts to steer it back to factory spec. Don't know if I'll ever get it completely original, but as long as I have fun attempting to do so and the GPW ends up better than when I found it, then I can't complain.
