I have for sale a 1952 Willys M38. It was restored about 6 months ago, but I would say it is 98% done. What I mean is it has no decals on it, no add-ons, etc. I wanted to keep it “base” form so whoever bought it can take it and put there personal touches on it. This is not a true M38 restoration. What I mean by that is it has been converted over to an alternator and 12-volt system, it has blinkers both front and rear, it has lockout hubs on the front axle, etc. Just a few little things that makes it easy on the owner and easy to take off down the road in.
This was a full frame-off restoration. Everything was sand blasted and re painted. The original tub was rusted far way beyond repair. I actually found a super-nice M38 tub that I picked up in Pennsylvania. The L-134 “Go Devil” engine was rebuilt with all new bearings are rings, etc. The T-90 transmission, Dana 18 transfercase, and both Dana axles also have all new bearings and seals. The gauges are all new, new wiring harness ($$$), new tires ($$$), new fuel tank ($$$), new exhaust, new driveshafts, new brakes, new seats, new weather stripping, new everything. It is really a nice Jeep. It does not have a top or a rear seat, I just never got around to getting those and I like having my dog ride in the back so I didn’t bother.

Like I said, it is 98% done. I literally “finished it” and took it home, it still has just a few kinks that need to be worked out. The fuel-sending unit and the fuel gauge are both new, but the fuel gauge isn’t registering. I just haven’t taken the time to check it. If it sits for a few weeks, it can be hard to start, it does have a choke but you almost have to choke it by hand and then it fires up, almost like the choke doesn’t choke it all the way. And lastly I did use the factory starter and it works pretty good, but it can act goofy from time to time, I should have just put a new one on it.
It really is a super-nice Willys M38. Not a 100% military restoration, but practical. I have only had it done for about 6 months now but I am just not that interested in it anymore. Plus, I am a big guy and these army Jeep are pretty cramped, I am just not comfortable in it. I have only put 15 miles on it since it was restored. I am asking $10,000 or best reasonable offer. This is a military vehicle, Bill of Sale only, no title. It is currently tagged in Georgia.”
