    value of restored original MB vs. restored MB with repro body

    I know a lot of g503 owners who would have scrapped this tub. It's not pretty now, but you wait! I'm taking the time to restore it...cutting out bad metal and replacing it with good sheet metal. It's taking many years to do. When my GPW's tub is finished and the jeep is complete it will still be...

    value of restored original MB vs. restored MB with repro body

    Original meaning a certain percentage of factory and period correct parts. A restored tub is still an original tub...a restored and rebuilt original WWII engine, transmission, transfer case etc. are still "original". A jeep with a repro frame, body tub, fenders, grill, body handles, seats...

    Looking for a WWII Dodge.

    I think having the data plates are a plus. Also, quite often, you can still make out the registration numbers on the hood...if not, be careful removing the paint in case they are under several layers of paint. The hat channels were mentioned. Look for a period correct engine. Sometimes GPWs had...

    value of restored original MB vs. restored MB with repro body

    An MB/GPW with an original restored body tub is worth several thousands more than one with a repro tub. There is a jeep part dealer in TX who sold an MB several years ago and it was made up almost completely of repro parts. I believe it sold for $24,000. (There are several guys dong this now...
