There were 8000 AC pancake air cleaners to be used on the first contract production and at the end of the day on March 23, 1942 7937 GPW's had been built. Both figures are from Ford Archives of GPW production / contract records. Each plant should/could have run out of the pancake air cleaner at different times. The records of when the change happened at each plant may or may not ever be found. (Tom Wolboldt- '09)

Black or Olive Drab - See Above

Block "F" Marked on GPWs  Ford part #'s show 3 x over tubes, but the 1st has no suffix, (taller tube) the 2nd has an A suffix (short used with Oakes air filter) and the 3rd has a B (with oil filler tube vent ) http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

Early Ford Crossover tube....

1) 5- 3/4" tall from the top of the mounting foot to the top of the tube.
2) Tube is offset to the rear of the center of the foot
3) Mounting foot is towards the pass fender, i.e. the nuts are on the FENDER side of the versicle part of the bracket.
4) Spark plug wire hole is towards the front of the bracket
5) Rubber grommet is black
6) Strengthening ribs are closer to the nuts and are SHORT like the later style, not LONG as shown in the photo
7) Tube/mount are painted the same black as the carb air horn.

Best of all, the block "F" is stamped on the carb side just above the plug wire hole so you know it's a GPW made item.

If we go by the article written by Walter Terzano et al on USMC Vehicle Markings in Military Magazine some years back--this is what he says is used. It should be noted that there were no references giving in the article on were he got his information.
For FS 24052 Semi-Gloss Forest Green------FS 23538 Semi-Gloss Yellow
For FS 34052 Lusterless Forest Green--------FS 33538 Lusterless Yellow
All American Wonder number one and two lists the Ditzler (PPG) number, which is the correct colour, as 81958 USMC Yellow for the marking paint on pages 94 and 225.

The can of paint is Tempo Profession Choice, Custom Colour Universal Blend, DDL81958 Yellow SPEC-13538 using No. 865 Universal Blend and is 12oz. when filled.
 Beachwood  lists the USMC marking yellow, their number B2422-1. By Mark Tombleson

ENGINE

Ford record indicate that on 1May'42 motor # 26207 was the first to be painted M-4084-G Grey paint. On 24Sep'42 Ford started using M-1788-H Grey paint ( same as the 9N tractor ) on GPW engines. The records do not show what paint was used for the GPW motors before #26207. The GP used the 9N Grey ( M-1788-H ) on the motor and this may have been carried though to the first GPW's. Ford motor assembly records show paint # M-1788 Grey for 9N and Ford designed 4 cyls. before GPW # 26207 and paint number M-1788-H Grey after the 24Sep'42 date for GPW and Tractor motors.

There is speculation that in the Summer of '42 - March-July 1942  That some GPW engines were painted BLUE.

FRAME (CHASSIS) 

VEP* Very Early Production

Early GPW frames were made by Midland Steel Co. and made to Willys specs. Ford purchased them from Midland direct. Later GPW frames were purchased by Ford from Murray Co.

This applies to the Ford Jeep produced between February 1942 and August 1945

TM-10 1513 & TM-10 1349 Changes to the Chassis Illustrations & Measurements

O/Drab

VEP* Ford used the Willys Chassis (Frame). GPW stamped Willys frames have been found up to GPW 15064. This is possibly one of the last Willys frames used. If you have a later Ford Stamped W-O frame contact me.

Note:- GPW 14944 has a pure Early Ford stamped frame. This may have something to do with different Ford production plants.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) can be found on the left side frame rail, at the front, near the left motor mount. The number, typically, looks like *GPWxxx* but there are many variations.

Generators Used on Both Ford & Willys

From Ford documents, the Ford made generator with sealed bearings was started on June 16, '42. Prior to this date Autolite generators ( GEG-5001A and maybe GEG-5002D ) were used. NOTE - there is no data that I have seen showing the Autolite made generator GEG-5002D was ever used in a GPW but it may have been so more research needs done on this point. On the second GPW contract 20,184 non Ford made generators were used before the Ford made generators started to be used in the production of GPWs.

In Nov. '43 the Ordnance Dept. issued instructions to eliminate the use of ball bearings on the commutator end of the GPW generator.

On Nov. 29. '43 a quote was given to the Ordnance Dept for the price change affected by the above instructions.

On Feb. 23, '44 Ford states they have $15,000 worth of obsoleted generator parts on hand due to the change in generators.

From this data I would say Late Jan. or early Feb., '44 was the date Ford changed to the Autolite GEG-5101D generator from their own made generator. (Tom W.)

The 1st version of the GPW glove box lid is slightly different. The hole for the glove box lock is 1/2 lower than the standard hole to accommodate glove box lock A-3532. Additionally there is no hole above the glove box for the striker.

Only GPW glove box doors with a key lock as a factory item used the door spring after the GPW left the assembly plant.

Ford Made were"F" marked inside.

Glove Box floors: Early Ford built (VEP) bodies had flat glove box floors.http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg Late Ford production and ACM bodies had two reinforcing beads in the glove box floor.. The spring catch on the door went away in Oct. '44. Only GPWs with key lock glove box doors were delivered with a spring attached to the door. All other GPWs through sometime in Oct. '44 used the spring in the assembly process but it was removed prior to final assembly.

The spring catch in the floor of the glove box continued through the end of GPW production. (Tom Wolboldt 2012)

Hood AKA Bonnet & Canvas Welting

FORD GPW :

Early - Rubber - Green to August 1942. It would appear,  yet to be verified, that there were two sizes of the early Rubber Hood Blocks 1" and 5/8" in height. http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpghttp://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

Plain Wood - Not Used on GPW's

Wood with Insert Painted Olive Drab August 1942 to end of production. Various plants had varying starting dates. 

Hood welting rivets: Rivets installed head-up with legs bent under lip of grille. These rivets were S2 finished

Under Hood Lever Grease Gun fitted sometime after Willys depending on which Ford Factory manufactured the jeep. Early (Jan, Feb, March) 1944 is the current hypothesis. Brands fitted were Lincoln and Alemite

WILLYS MB:
Green Rubber: Start of production to early September 1942 Veh. No. 218345. Part No. A-2922 

http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

Wood: Early September 1942 (Veh. No 218346) to June 1943


Wood/With Insert: June 1943 to end of production

Hood welting rivets: Rivets installed head-up with legs bent under lip of grille. These rivets were S2 finished

Under Hood Grease Gun Lever grease gun and bracket were issued by the factory on a Willys BOM page dated 13 NOV 43 and MB-NOM-12 with the BOM dated 3 JAN 44. So Factory MB's could have been fitted from that date onwards. Lever Grease Gun and plunger is Plated, end cap is plated. Lever and attaching end is painted Olive Drab. Nozzle is Plated.

Usually Red primer. However, one MB dated Feb '42 have been found parts with black primer:  Bonnet (hood) headlamp brackets, grill, all air deflectors, floor plate, starter heat shield ( Doug. Ingram 2014)

Originally I had these as NOT "F" marked, however, it has recently come to light that as there are only two bolts of this size ( TWO (2) 1/4-28 x 5/8" bolts ) fitted to the jeep and that have been found fitted to a Reykjavik, Iceland find jeep, it would appear that at some stage these bolts were indeed "F" marked. http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

It should be noted that as these "F" marked bolts are so rare there's a possibility that these were phased out over the production of the Ford made jeeps.

Ford was not directed to change their GPW contract to add "War Department Lubrication Guide No. 501 " to a GPW until May 18, 1944. The change of adding the lube guide no. 501 was to take effect as soon a possible but as the data shows this was about a 7 week period of time. .(Tom.W. Mar 04, 2013)

Late Late war GPWs did not have a lube chart holder under the hood only dimples where it would have been mounted. The lube chart used was the new folding type which was stored in the glove box.(Tom.W. 24Jan2012)

Military Junior filter and the Purolator part number 26638 was  not used on MB or GPW jeeps.

Top plate retaining bolt is Cad plated for both PurOlater and Fram filters

*** PurOlater Type, Unprimed under Black with silver  stencil marks of PD-5106 http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg not PD-51 http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg  on top  and INLET in silver   http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

 "PD-5101" was used for both Dodges and MB's after Ford began to use the Purolator on the GPW. Before Ford began using them they were only marked PD-51...there was no reason to use the "01" or "06". Purolator began using PD-5106 to denote oil filters meant for GPW's since they had a Ford decal. The 5101 denoted the standard filter (two decals).

Willys Radiators On Fords

*** Updated Aug 2010 Ford document show the MB radiator became optional on the GPW in late '43. Most '44 and '45 GPWs have been found with MB radiators . The Colour was still OD,  NOTE BELOW FOR EXCEPTIONS RICHMOND PLANT

Updated 26 Feb 2012- If you have a Late '44 GPW see this RICHMOND PLANT photo http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

At present this only applies to the Richmond Plant, Willys Radiators were fitted and were left Black on delivery. Note also, the top radiator steel tube is Black, the air cross over tube is OD, Air horn to carburettor is OD.

Hoses are Red Striped , Not GPW marked, 
Radiator Clips are Unpainted, Plated 

Radiator Hoses: From start of production until approx. Nov. ‘42 GPWs were produced with one-piece rubber radiator hoses.
The upper hose is a spiral-wrapped type with a 1/2” red stripe.
The lower is a molded elbow shaped hose marked in red or white paint. The “F” is the Firestone style.

After Nov. ‘42 both upper and lower hoses included a steel tube and used 4 short lengths of red-stripe hose and a total of 8 hose clamps.http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg
The steel tubes were painted gloss black or more commonly olive drab.
An alternate late-type hose did not have the red stripe, but did include the Ford part number and Ford script in *silver paint.*(*Tony Sudds UK)

RADIO WIRING JUNCTION BOX

- Olive Drab -

Ford used Round Head, slotted, Machine Thread screws 1/4" x 3/4" NC with star washers and nuts internally. The outside washer was lead plated steel. If you can't find such a washer, you can "tin" the washer in a thin solder. Actual start date is uncertain at this time, however, on a GPW the radio wiring junction box started in Mid '43 ( Lloyd White says with the use by Ford of the ACM type 1 body)

REGISTRATION NUMBERS (HOOD NUMBERS)

Radio Supressed Jeeps Hood Markings Approx. change date - ARMY MOTORS Article. 

2" High Blue Drab Number were added at the factory throughout the full production of Fords.

On resprays in the field, White Numbers of varying sizes and font styles were applied.

Interesting Registration Number Fact

GPW's were made under a "cost plus" basis. That is whatever the actual cost of producing a 1/4 ton truck was the Government was charged exactly that, plus Ford's profit (about $50.00 per vehicle). This produced a bookkeeping nightmare as every time something was changed or added to the jeep the exact cost of this had to be computed and added to the amount the Government was charged. Of course this worked both ways if something was deleted from the vehicle. In contract W-398-QM-11424 for example, the omitting of the third US registration number on the rear panel lowered the cost of the GPW's by $0.25 each.

This applies to the Ford Jeep produced between February 1942 and September 1945

2" High Blue Drab Numbers and letters  White was used in the last contract and produced after the War ended.

From Fred  Coldwell - Feb 7 2016

The change from lusterless blue drab to lusterless white painted hood registration numbers was scheduled to take place on the Willys factory production line on October 1, 1945, which is after WW II ended. So I believe the Willys factory used blue drab paint for all U.S.A. Registration numbers through August 20, 1945, when MB production for the Army (Ordnance) ended. In 1945 Willys also produced 1310 MB jeeps for the Navy under Ordnance Purchase Order T-14565 but under a different Ordnance contract, 33-019-3339, with registration numbers "Navy to Assign".

The only Willys MB I have seen with a white factory-painted registration number has "U.S.A. / 20769647 S" on its hood side.  

http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

 But according to the U.S. Army Ordnance Department's 1 October 1945 publication "Administrative and Tactical Vehicles 1940-1945", which is now available for purchase from the M.V.P.A., the highest MB registration number on a Willys MB bought by the Army was 20768668, which is 979 numbers lower than 20769647. Moreover, 20769647 is pictured in the Willys factory on December 7, 1945 being fitted with an experimental full length metal cab made by Willys. This leads me to believe 20769647 was a MB that was either (i) given that U. S. Army registration number by the Navy, which makes little sense but remains a possibility because it was an ORD jeep rather than a Navy radio jeep, or (ii) was retained privately by Willys for use in testing parts which Willys designed postwar and sought to sell to the Army.

Remember, when the Army cancelled the Willys MB contract on August 20, 1945, it probably purchased all the MB's then on the production line that day but told Willys not to begin building another MB for the Army. I imagine Willys had on hand sufficient parts in stock to build a number of additional Ordnance MB's. Willys might have built a few MB's to keep for postwar testing and settled its contract termination with the Army for all others MB parts then on hand in stock. Some MB parts were used in early CJ-2A Universal jeeps.

Bottom line IMO, if you are restoring your Army MB to WW II "factory condition" paint its hood registration numbers in A-2594 lusterless blue drab paint.

UNCONFIRMED :- Nabholtz notes that very late production GPWs were fitted with the canvas cover. Photo of the Louisville Plant Shows the cover fitted, Contract F5. It should be noted that although the photo shows a GPW leaving the line, it's a posed photo as the vehicle already has the USA registration Number 20748944 S . These numbers were allocated after inspection, not on the production line. This information may not be correct.

Nuts used are all right hand, longer than the nuts attaching the rim to the drums  http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg

Jeeps came off the line with the rims painted Olive Drab  first, done at the wheel factory.
The tires were added at the jeep plant, the halves were bolted together, since the bolts were staked into the rim half they got Olive Drab  on the bolt heads only. The rest of the bolt was plated and protected with a cardboard tube. (See photo on the right)
http://jeepdraw.com/images/jeepdraw/PART_COLOURS/PART_C1.jpg
Nuts were added on the back side. They were Cad. plated .Then the wheel/tire was mounted onto the jeep.
When the jeep got to the touch up stage at the end of the line where it was no longer pushed along by the hubs then the touch up man sprayed Olive Drab on the hub and over the lug nuts.

SPARE FUEL CARRIER 

AKA Jerry Can Bracket

TB ORD-92 Mounting the 5 gallon spare fuel Carrier . Pdf File

A basic identification is as follows.
(1) Six holes on the underside (two large, four small)

(2) Underside has a stamped, recessed area left and right to accommodate the folded tabs from the sides.

(3) Reinforced fold where the straps meet the bracket. These could be missing as some were just a clip on arrangement.

(3) Part Number "42-B-22590" stamped... MAYBE! Maybe not!

The late war (Ordnance Drawing) part number was D66675. After WW2 the 7,xxx,xxx Ordnance number was used.

 If Fitted - Olive Drab Primed with Red Oxide

2 webbing Straps attached with brass rivets. See TB ORD-92 Pdf File

GPW was FM-GPW 1140330. To my knowledge, none are so marked with a part number or "F" stamped.

To be 100% certain you have a genuine WW2 spare fuel carrier you need to check some numbers, usually stamped 42-B-22590 or D66675 (Late War Drawing Number), [ Have been found on the front face, either left of right side of the front strap slot, Extra stamp on the vertical/sloped side (not as common) ], now having said that, unmarked ones are also correct, provided they follow the correct manufactured folds, tabs and indents and hole locations. Many GPWs have been found as original with non-marked brackets

Security Wiring (Photos on Left) soft iron wire of 16 gage or .0625 (Willys A964 or Spicer LW-1 Low Carbon steel black annealed) was originally used along with a Willys A9331 listed in the 49 ORD 9. Brass in .040" was used often in the field. Both of these were replaced with the modern stainless steel wires in .020, .032 and .041" etc.

When using lock wire the industry standard requires the wire be of sufficient size to fill 3/4 of the hole. Bolts like Tony's illustration (left) with two wire holes were required to have wire in both holes forming an "X" in each bolt head.

This is all subjective, and I have never seen any factory original wire installations. There are several different acceptable wiring methods for every installation so there is no real gospel way to do it. Unless of course some 90 year old ex-Willys assembly line employee offers up a little personal testimony! (

A Little History on Willys- Ford Composite Tubs and Bantam Trailers

On March 10, 1941, Auburn-Central was awarded a contract to produce 1,600 Jeep bodies for Willys Overland Motors, and by the end of April, Auburn-Central built Jeep body tubs were used in Willys’ Toledo, Ohio assembly plant. Auburn-Central’s president, Harry Woodhead, was replaced by Gaunders P. Jones on June 23, 1941 and the firm continued its preparations to gear up for wartime production.

On August, 4, 1941, Willys-Overland ordered another 16,000 Jeep bodies from Auburn-Central, which was followed up in November by another order for 11,000 units. Auburn-Central’s board of directors made a patriotic gesture on March 30, 1942 when they renamed the firm the American-Central Manufacturing Co. Production of all consumer-destined steel products was halted and the firm devoted itself to military products.

For the remainder of hostilities, American Central manufactured Jeep bodies, ¼ ton Bantam trailers, and wing assemblies, bomb bay doors, gun turret decks, collector rings, and carburettor air ducts for the Consolidated-Vultee B-24 Liberator Bomber, a product of the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation, commonly known as Convair, which resulted from a 1943 merger between Vultee and Consolidated Aircraft. Over 18,000 B-24 Liberators were built during the war, making it the most popular bomber of World War II.

From the fall of 1943, when they started supplying Jeep tubs to Ford, through 1948, Central Manufacturing was the sole producer of Jeep bodies. A composite Jeep tub that combined the best features of the Ford and Willys-Overland tubs began production in January of 1944.

As the 325,000th Jeep body was mounted to a waiting Willys chassis, the employees of American Central were awarded with the coveted Army-Navy “E” Award in a special ceremony that took place on July 22, 1944. The plant’s other accomplishments included the completion of 200,000 Bantam ¼-ton trailer bodies and the countless wing sub-assemblies that had been produced for the B-24 Liberator and Vultee A-31 Vengeance.

In a sign of good faith, Willys-Overland ordered 25,000 post-war Jeep bodies from Central on August 23, 1944.

The employees of American-Central received their second Army-Navy “E” award on January 16, 1945. The E-award was the Army-Navy Award for Excellence in War Production and was normally awarded when a firm completed a large order for the US War effort or filled an order in a short period of time.

At the ceremony, the employees would be given an enamelled pin mounted on a card certifying their contribution to the war effort with a message from the president.  The employer would be presented with an “E’ flag and banner and outstanding employees would be presented with a special certificate.
