1942 Ford Other Description

LOW RESERVE..!!!!!

1942 GPW FORD JEEP... FROM WHAT I CAN TRELL IT LOOKS LIKE ALL ORIGINAL PARTS, BOUGHT FROM THE SECOND OWNER WHO BOUGHT IT FROM A WW2 VET.
THIS JEEP IS SUPPOSEDLY A BRING BACK. HAS SEEN COMBAT, WAS OVER IN THE ETO.
HOWEVER THE NUMBERS DO NOT MATCH ON THE BODY AND ENGINE..SO IM ASSUMING THE ENGINE WAS CHANGED AFTER THE AUCTION... THE BODY AND FRAME STILL MAY HAVE BEEN USED IN THE WAR..
BUT ANYWAY,...
THE STORY GOES, THE WW2 VET HAD BOUGHT IT FROM A GOV AUCTION IN 1946 AFTER IT HAD BEEN RETURNED FROM THE ETO.
THE SECOND OWNER BOUGHT IT FROM THE ESTATE SALE OF THE VET WHEN HE DIED, THE VET NEVER REGISTERED IT..
THE SECOND OWNER (KOREAN WAR VET 75) REGISTERED IT, AND HE SAID IT HAD STAMPED ON THE ORIGINAL GOV PAPERWORK "RETURN SERVICE" WHICH MEANT BRING IT HOME...
UNFORTUNATLY HE DIDNT HAVE THE NOTION TO MAKE A COPY OF IT, BUT HE TOLD ME THIS A MONTH AFTER I BOUGHT IT....AND THE DMV TAKES THE PAPERWORK WHEN YOU REGISTER IT...
ANYWAY..THE JEEP IS IN GREAT SHAPE..I THINK HE DID REPAINT THE STARS AND REG NUMBERS..ORIGINAL FORD TUB, NO ROT, VERY SOLID, LOOKS LIKE THE REAR FLOOR MAY HAVE BEEN REPLACED,,ALTHOUGH IF SO..IT WAS DONE VERY WELL... I CANT TELL IF ITS ORIGINAL OR NOT...IT DOENT LOOK LIKE THE BODY WAS EVER SEPARATED FROM THE FRAME...
IT SAYS IT ONLY HAS 5300 MILES ON IT...BUT THE ENGINE IS A REPLACEMENT SO NOT SURE WHAT IT HAS...THE WAY IT RUNS, I THINK ITS PRACTICALLY NEW....BUT JUST MY OPTION.....THE FIRST OWNER HAD IT ON HIS FARM IN HIS BARN, NEVER DROVE IT,. THE SECOND OWNER ONLY PUT ABOUT 200 MILES ON IT IN THE 10 YEARS HES OWNED IT...ONLY DRIVING IT IN PARADES..
HE PUT NEW BRAKES AND A CLUTCH IN IT...
IT DRIVES GREAT, STARTS RIGHT UP, NO OIL BURNING, DOESNT LEAK...OCCASIONAL DRIP BUT NO PUDDLES..
GOES THROUGH THE GEARS NO PROBLEM, 4 WD WORKS GREAT, IVE DRIVEN IT UP TO 50 MPH AND ITS STABLE, STOPS AND GOES GREAT.STARTS ON THE FIRST TURN..NEW 6 VOLT BATTERY. HAS "F" STAMPINGS ALL OVER ITS PARTS...
IVE PUT ABOUT 300 MILES ON IT SINCE I BOUGHT IT, AND ITS BEEN IN MY BARN..I LOOKED FOR 3 YEARS AT JEEPS UNTIL I FINALLY FOUND A DECENT ONE...MOST OF THEM HAVE BEEN GONE THRU AND ARE JUNK..THIS ONES UNTOUCHED, UNRESTORED...I DONT WANT TO SELL, BUT IM MOVING AND NEED THE CASH. SO IT MUST GO...
