This isn’t stock, but appears to be a solid rig.

“This is a 1951 M38 Willys Jeep. Originally built for the US Military, it was sold as surplus in 1963, still unused in its wooden crate.It was bought by a family who converted it back then, to a GM V6 Fireball engine, free wheeling front hubs, and GM truck front brakes. It was used by this family for the next 46 years as a hunting vehicle. I bought it 3 years ago with 7,500 miles on the clock, which may or may not be accurate. I have added 2,000 miles since then.

I have had the vehicle completely restored during the 3 years, and just about everything has been either renovated, replaced or repaired. EVERYTHING! I use it as my local daily driver, and it has always been a hoot to drive, with about 160 hp instead of 65 hp. Everything works perfectly. It has a complete all weather Beechwood cover as well. It also has a towing bar.

It has been welcomed in all the 4th July parades and gets more attention at car gatherings than Ferraris’!

It is not 100% original, but it does look the part, and everyone smiles when they see it. You can even invade small countries at the weekend with it.

There is a reserve on it, equal to about what I have invested in it during my ownership, but I will not disclose this, so please do not ask.

Obviously there is no warranty, implied or otherwise, and I reserve the right to end the auction early as the car is for sale locally.”
