“This vintage 1954 Willys m38a1 U.S. army vehicle is original 24 volt, runs perfectly, shifts perfectly including 4 wheel drive. as far as I can tell the vehicle is not cut, welded on, or in any other way been severely damaged or altered. The jeep is certainly not perfect or show quality / it shows dents and dings / layers of green farm paint. The floor boards in the front are solid but look as though they have seen minor repairs in the past / the jeep shows little to no rust. The wheels and tires are civilian while the spare is a military ndt with original wheel. The dash data plate shows a 1954 date / the data plate behind the passenger seat is missing / the engine that I replaced did not have a number stamped into it. As it stands this is a solid driver vehicle in great condition that is reliable and mechanically totally sound. I have always kept the vehicle garaged and have used it primarily for Sunday driving or riding around the neighborhood / vehicle has not been abused as an off-roading unit.

Mechanically the jeep was in good shape when I purchased it and over the past few years I have made some improvements and completed routine maintenance.

– Summer 2016 – full engine rebuild and installation with correct “MD” stamped military f-134 “hurricane” engine ( done by 1/4 ton military in chickamauga, ga)
– Summer 2016 – new brakes, brake lines, all fluids changed including mechanical housings (done by 1/4 ton military )
– Fuel pump rebuild by kaiser-willys
– Original Carter carb rebuild by kaiser-willys
– Air intake cross-over tube replaced with correct unit
– Instrument cluster removed and replaced non-working gauges
– Damaged seat covers replaced
– Windshield and rubber replaced
– 24 volt waterproof spark plug wires / and new plugs
– A variety of other tasks to numerous to count

Not shown in the pictures but items included :
– spare f134 “Hurricane” engine block ( removed summer 2016 when rebuilt md unit installed)
– top bow for canvas top ( no canvas top )
– cold weather heater – I removed so I could work on the engine – the heating unit works really well and could be reinstalled easily (4 bolts / one wire)
– enough nos oil filters to last years
– many spare pieces of hardware
– full set of TM maintenance manuals

High lift jack shown in pictures is not included

Jerry can is included ( I have red or green )

The reason I am considering selling is that I do not use it enough and the jeep deserves more time on the road and more attention. I am interested in selling to a military vehicle enthusiast who will care for the jeep and enjoy it while not transforming it into a mudding vehicle.

This vehicle is registered / licensed in the state of Alabama – vehicle will be sold per bill of sale – Alabama does not require title for vintage vehicles.

The price is $6000

This vehicle is sold as is, where is. No trades. I do not need help selling this vehicle. No low-ballers, tire-kickers or joy-riders. Please do not contact me unless you are serious about purchasing this vehicle.”
