Ford GPW 108552

A complete and running April '43 GPW, came with Slat Tub DOD Dec. 10, 1941 and Serial Number 102868. Tub sold to David Villa in San Luis Obispo, CA for his slatgrill project. Information supplied by Jim Gilmore from Ford Archives: Engine: Assembled at Rouge Motor Building, March 30, 1943. Hood Number: 20371278 Estimated DOD: April 17, 1943 (missing data plate). Tires: Synthetic. Shipped April 21, 1943 by Pennsylvania Railroad Shipping invoice # C-136613. Box Car # 81654. I have a proper Dec. '42 tub and almost all the parts gathered for the restoration. This will be very close to the Factory Class if possible.

A matching numbers frame & motor. I have a correct FORD tub for it. I will rstore this when the collection for parts is complete as a Factory/Restored Class GPW. Until then, I can drive my other jeep, GPW 17963.
