This historic Ford GPA Jeep is a remarkable find, having remained in its original production state since its manufacturing date of December 4, 1942.

To ensure its continued functionality, a significant overhaul has been recently conducted. The “go devil” engine has undergone a total rebuild, including the replacement of cylinders, rings, pistons, valves, guides, crankshaft rectification, pinions, timing chain, clutch, and seals. The peripheries have also been revised, with the steering box and rubber bellows being replaced. Some non-functional gauges have been swapped with similar productions to maintain authenticity.
