is there a chance they were putting left over GPW engines in the cj-2a’s after the war?

No chance of that from Willys.  It's a later owner replacement, like the Oct. '43 Wilson Foundry GPW block in Ol' Unreliable.

Speaking of the time tunnel, if we discussed GPW engines coming in CJ2A's from the Willys Factory in 2006 when this post started, the answer would have been an emphatic NO.

Since then, it has been determined that there were in fact GPW engines included in the 'buyback' program at Willys. I have only seen one, but they do exist. They can be identified like other buyback engines by the crude milling of the serial pad, and the restamp with CJ2A engine numbers in the buyback serial range.

The GPW 6015 is a casting number, not an engine serial.

I can't recall if this discussion was at the Fall Color Tour, or a recent MVPA meeting.

It might have been the color tour since we had Fred Coldwell, Fred LePerrier,  Lloyd White, Mark Tombleson ,Mike Myers, and Daron Wanberg all at the same place at the same time.

You'll need the time tunnel to ever make that happen again.

Wait! Wait! Wait! Can we use the time tunnel to go back and prevent Renault from buying AMC?

Wouldn't that mean all the YJ's on the planet would instantly disappear?
Oh GOD, some really worse outcomes just came to mind. If Toyota got them you could end up with a 4WD Prius with square headlights! I think I like the YJ better now.

Now THAT is funny! Thank you Joe...

Think of all the alternate universes possible in a jeep world. Maybe if AMC hadn't bought Kaiser...hmmmm...

Since we're looking into the time tunnel, what if Willys and Bantam had merged in 1941 or so?  Could that conglomeration have kept Ford out of the jeep world?

Since I got us off on a tangent.

If I could use a Time tunnel for something frivolous I would Go back to January 1929 with a pocket full of CZ's and sell them as Diamonds to Jewelers in  New York. I would then Travel to 1937 take the profits to the largest firearms store I could find and buy up as many Model 66 73 76 1885 1886 1892 1895 1890 1897 1906 54 55 62 62A 64 65 69 70 and 71 rifles as I could I would also buy up as many Colt 1911's 1872's 1873's Colt Army Special's and of course any good condition Colt cap and ball revolver. As well as any Colt Lightning pump carbines.

I would then find a place in the Oregon High Desert up on a hill easily found at any time later. I would bury them in a sealed steel drum filled with Oil. I would then paint the barrel with Roofing tar at least a 1/4" thick. All wood removed and stored in a separate sealed barrel after being  . Wrapped tightly in aluminum foil and then each piece dipped in paraffin to totally seal the wood.

A near mint model 1886 Winchester in a rare caliber or form can fetch $20,000.00 or more. 1876's even more. Same with many of the other models being able to be bought for less then . 50 rare Winchesters and Colt hand guns from the Past would make one heck of a nest egg to dig up some 83 years later.

Then when you went to dig them up you'd find that in the intervening years, Winchester and Colt decided to produce so many of the listed items that they're no longer rare, because someone went around buying them all up...  Ouch

That's possible but highly unlikely as market factors would not have changed over the years. Also Winchester Repeating Arms co. as a manufacturer has been out of business since 1931 the company went into receivership and The Olin Family bought it through their Western Brand. Thus becoming the Winchester-Western Company. Which carried on until the whole thing pretty much fell apart in 1980.

Also with the huge retooling and change in all the manufacturing methods in 1964 in an attempt to hold market share against Remingtons cheaper to produce rifles. Nothing made after 1964 has the same value as those made before.

And keep in mind the majority of the models I listed were already long out of the catalog by 1935.

I been dreaming on this idea a long time.

Since I dont have a time tunnel, I bought an Uberti version of the Winchester 1876 in .50 Express (also known as .50-95). While its not the real thing, its a beautifully made rifle and a blast to shoot. I added authentic reproduction tang sight to help my aging eyes too. Here it is next to an original model 1873. My appologies for drifting off topic, but its another area of interest to me Smile

An Uberti made Model 1885 Hi Wall in 45-70 with the pistol grip stock and Double set triggers is the top of my lust list. I'll do both long range sights and a Malcolm 6X Brass scope.

here is my show off

A c1905 Winchester Model 1895 Deluxe Rifle (28" barrel) High grade wood (no checkering) in 30 Gov. (also known as 30-40 Krag) with the uber desirable Lyman #21 receiver mounted peep sight. Dad bought it in 1968 at a gun show while I stood next to him. Its one of my most prized possessions.

sweet! The. 30-40 Krag is a fine, if not under appreciated cartridge.

I'm fond of odd and unusual cartridges and enjoy bringing long obsolete rifles back to life. I have a soft spot for rolling blocks, including an extremely rare one chambered in .58 Roberts. Here is its cartridge next to a .22 short for comparison. Apologies again for drifting off topic.

The cartridge on the left represents the guy that your girlfriend told you (the cartridge on the right) not to worry about.  They are just friends.  Big smile
