Auction Block: 1942 Ford GPW Military Vehicle

Feb 14, 2019

Category: Rides

Ford has a rich history in WWII automotive endeavors, with their GPW Military “Jeep” braving numerous battlefields as a prominent light utility and troop-faring vehicle. Around 280,000 of these off-road variants were produced from 1941-1945, and although they were phased out following the war, a number of immaculately kept models have continuously emerged from the woodwork.

The 1942 Ford GPW in question is a perfectly realized recollection of the era — and solidifies its standing as one of the automotive manufacturer’s most sought after platforms. Originally, the Army Green jeep traversed a wide variety of terrain with ease, thanks in large part to standardized options like 6.00×16 tires, 60 horsepower at 4,000rpm, and provisionary attachments for trailer lighting, twin top bows, sealed spring shackles, and spark interference suppression. Integrated racks and carrying brackets allow for a wide range of tools and other items to be stowed, while period-correct identification numbers and unit demarcation adorn the exterior of the vehicle. Military enthusiasts will be happy to know that the immaculately kept vehicle is slated for sale at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s Essen 2019 auction and will garner an expected selling price of $34,000.

Purchase: $34,000+
