Seller: skapunkninja (683) 100%, Location: Havant, Ships to: GB, Item: 192725216179 This is a nicely restored 1944 Ford GPW. It came from Australia where it served with the Australian army up until December 1960. It was then used as a bush fire control jeep before being left in a barn for many years. This is a very original jeep with a lot of documented history and original data plates. I have saved and reused every original part possible, and there are a lot of F script bolts and parts. On stripping back the paint we found the original layer with its original markings, which enabled us to track its history through the Canberra war museum and recreate the markings as you can see now. It has its original composite tub, wings and bonnet NOT more modern replacements, so while it does have a few dings and folds it is absolutely solid and in great condition for being 75 years old! It starts very well for a 6v system, and fires after a few cranks even after being sat for a few weeks. Charges at a good 7v, good oil pressure and holds temperature well. Original T84 transmission. At some point the engine was changed, so it has a 1943 dated Willys MB block and head. Still running on 6v with correct generator, regulator, filterette box etc. Several thousand pounds worth of parts reciepts for all that work that has been done. Including (but not limited to)- -Tub, engine, running gear etc all removed to clean, repair and paint frame and tub.-Engine completely stripped, cleaned and valves reseated. new chain, piston rings, head gasket, all engine gaskets.-complete new ignition system-carter carb rebuild-full front to back rewire with correct braided wire-all engine ancilleries stripped and rebuilt with new parts as required-all new engine bay pipes and hoses-transmission stripped and parts replaced as required-transfer case full rebuild with new gears, shafts and bearings.-all new brake pipes, cylinders, shoes, bearings etc-steering knuckles rebuilt, new bearings, seals and reshimmed-all new seat cushions, rood and straps from John & Mary Worthing-new tyres and much, much more.
