Listed in Hemmings:HEMMINGS MOTOR NEWS 1944 Ford GPW ARMED AND BATTLE READY, THIS WWII TIME CAPSULE WAS PRICED RIGHT By Mike McNessor from the March 2009 issue of Hemmings Motor News Yup, that’s a WWII-era Army jeep all right soldier, but not of the Willys variety. It’s a Ford. This one spotted in Hershey’s expansive car corral last year was a 1944-vintage GPW, VIN number 225722 to be exact, and it had 44,187 on the odometer. Updates included a new oil line, a rebuilt carburetor, a new wiring harness a recent top replacement, good tires, an extra hood and, of course, an M-1 Garand semi-automatic service rifle sheathed into the dash. The owner was open to offers but was starting at $15,500–which in our way of thinking was a realistic price for a war machine this complete and battle ready.1944 Ford GPW Asking price: $15,500… offers? Known issues: Rifle mounted on dash could be a problem for those prone to road rage Seller description: Runs and drives excellent, zero rust anywhere, everything works Why buy? Military jeeps steal the show at cruise ins and gatherings. They aren’t great for long drives in the country, but for short hunting trips into the bush, they rule.
