(05/04/2016) It’s a project.
“1952 willys m38 jeep for sale. no title. Must sell. $1800 obo. Bought for project vehicle and don’t have time for it. ”
Both are projects.
“Please read the entire ad:
Two M38A1 Military Jeeps + extra parts.
Enough parts here to build a really nice M38A1 with lots leftover. It’s all there!!!
Many desirable and hard to find parts, with extras from other projects.
This is not your typical rusted farm heap basket case.
Straight and almost rust free body. It’s been stored indoors for 20 years or more.
CLEAN and RUST FREE floors, except fuel tank well (2 new repos included).
NO RUST in toolbox.
Virtually NO RUST showing on the outside of the tub except for one tiny spot in the right side front rocker.
Nice fenders, just a little dented on the front.
ONLY real dent in the tub is on the front right corner but easily straightened.
Good front seat frames. 3 rear seats frames but all need repairs.
Original top bows.
Windshield frame is included but forgot to dig it out for pics.
It was virtually complete, less motor, when I got it years ago.
Everything was carefully bagged and tagged on disassembly.
Engine runs, but “Old Blue’s” tank needs cleaning.

Seth found this photo of a stretched M-38A1 with extra seats parked at a Walmart. Looks like there’s a small sign attached to the beer case that indicates this may be in Virginia near the National Museum of the Marines
“This jeep is in good condition, drives great. Resealed fuel tank, NATO/European jerry can, good rubber, brakes are good, fresh paint and stars are new…..A general clean up and ready to parade. Converted to 12 vt.”
May be a good price.
“m38 top ?Top has passenger side glass cracked other two good. Passenger door glass cracked other piece plexiglass ,Drivers door both pieces Plexiglas I think. Both windows slide As should .Dont know what its worth Make offer .made out of aluminum.has tag on door see pictures”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $900.
Given the Meyer top, there may be value here.
“I believe that this is a 52 or 53. I have no title only bill of sale. I originally bought this to restore but have gone another route. This is mostly all there, the two side windows on the top are missing, easy to get. The windshield, doors and rear glass is all there and in good condition. I believe that this top will fit most of the CJ5s There is surface rust on the inside of the doors, the floorpan on the drivers side is rusty but there. The passanger side needs to be replaced.
It has the rearends, transmission, transfer case and has the adapter plate still on it for a 350 Chev.
It has been sitting for a number of years on a farm so of course it is rusty, but restorable or use for parts. Has the Ross steering conversion which is nice. missing the speedo. The sheetmetal is not all beat to heck and gone but in pretty good shape overall.
I was thinking of just parting this out but don’t haave the time (or effort)…I would like to get 900 for it but am open to reasonable offers. Might take a trade . Maybe a jeep or pickup truck.
I am very easy to deal with so give me a call or a contact number. by the reply box.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $2500

“This is a real army issue willys that was in the korean war which means it has a lot of heavy duty upgrades from the civilian model, it’s pretty much all original except the front bench seat but i have the stock buckets too and the front bumper trailer hitch for towing it as well. Just had a brand new carb and fuel pump put on it and the thing runs great and only has 30,000 miles on it! This thing gets lots of attention and is a blast to drive and will climb up anything!
I love this little willys jeep and don’t really want to sell it but current situations demand it.
Mark listed this over at warjeeps.com.
“What you are looking at is an original 1951 M38 Jeep. The Jeep has the correct MC engine, but does have a repairable crack above the distributor. A correct RMC engine block will come with it. The body is pretty straight. It has the usual floor rust. Most of the rust through area is in the driver front floor, but just where the flat panels are meaning it would be an easier repair job if you know how. The engine is not locked and spins freely. The Jeep has most of its original paint from the Korean War era and also still has its hood numbers both are pretty unusual to see on a Jeep as old as this. I would prefer this old steel soldier to find a good home to bring it back to life! I don’t usually sell my project Jeeps, but my dually needs 6 new tires.”
