Description
Lot #1302 - The Willy-Overland MB was the Jeep of choice at the start of World War II. However, due to the war's necessity, Willy's could not keep up with demand. As a result, Ford and Bantam stepped in and began producing them. Ford's model was known as the Ford GPW (Government, 80-inch wheelbase, Willys Blueprint). Ford eventually produced over 277,000 GPW's during the war. The Ford GPW here was purchased at a military surplus auction for old blue eyes himself, Mr. Frank Sinatra. The jeep was then moved to his home in the Palm Springs area, where it was restored. He would primarily use this vehicle for short trips, and off-road fun with family and friends. Mr. Sinatra owned it for over 20 years, and the vehicle looks pretty much like it did when Frank used to drive it. This Ford GPW comes complete with documentation verifying Frank Sinatra's ownership, including several orignal registration cards showing Mr. Sinatra's name and address as the registrant. Finished in the proper Olive drab Green paint with US markings, this authentic WWII Ford GPW is a fascinating piece of automotive history.
