Kaiser Willys had the contract for jeeps in 42 it couldn't kep up so Ford was brought in to help. Initially they were built on the Kaiser frame. GPW is the ford engine. I realize it isn't Chevy but maybe someone knows where to get one.

Try contacting Richard Grace in Palmetto, GA, at richardgrace@mindspring.com. He has all manner of WW2 vehicle parts and is very knowledgeable.
