    It looks to be in decent shape, but you don’t learn much from the photos. Dark and up against a wall.
    Doesn’t exactly make me warm and fuzzy for it.
    Looks like it has an early battery box cover.
    Also the Navy “Bureau of ships” placard is interesting.
    Is that normal on USMC Jeeps?

    Among the photos on the original Craigslist listing is a shot of Hagerty insurance values…it says M38A1s are worth:
    #1 condition (Excellent) $42,300; #2 (Very good) $32,300; #3 (average cond.) $14,600, #4 (fair) $8,400.
    Those prices seem awfully high.
