1953 M-38A1 St. Helens, OR $1150


UPDATE: Price dropped to $1150.

(06/26/2016) If the floors are solid could be a good price.

“This Jeep is a true military version, with the original green paint showing through beneath the yellow repaint.
The hard top is authentic, as are the wooden doors which I have included photos of a restored jeep with the same top and doors.
My Jeep has been parked for many years, motor is stuck, brakes not working, but this is pretty complete.
Minimal rust
I only have a bill of sale, as a past owner lost the title many years ago.
Possible trades, in no hurry to sell”

1951 M-38 Orlando, FL $3800


It runs. Looks like rust is lurking at the steps.

“Sellling my 1951 M38 Willys. This is the military version of the CJ-3A. Korean War veteran.
Does not have the original L-head engine, it was replaced by an F willys engine.
Unrestored, unmolested (aside from engine swap), retains original Army marking.
Starts & Runs, brakes need attention. 4wd with fording original equipment.
This one would need little to make it a driver keeping the patina.

Selling on a BILL OF SALE, as it comes from Georgia and they don’t issue titles for antique cars. Easy to get the FL title and I am more than willing to help on that matter.”

1952 M-38 San Francisco, CA $4800


Needs brake work.

“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! Needs rear brake slave cylinder rebuilt, 20 or 30 dollar fix other than that there are no mechanical issues.
I love this little willys jeep and don’t really want to sell it but current situations demand it.
4,800 obo which is a very reasonable price!”

1953 M-38A1 Fairfax, VA $8200


Could be a good M-38A1 for bringing back to original.

“This M38A1 Willys Jeep is in great condition. It runs and drives with no trouble. It has a newly rebuilt engine, transfer case, and carburetor. It runs on a 24 volt system. It’s 95% original with a few parts such as the passenger handle in front of the seat that came from a CJ5. Brand new 6 ply tires and drum brakes all around. Seats are in excellent condition with no rips or tears. The only thing missing is the windshield wiper motor. I’m in the process of registering it so it will be road legal. It will be registered next week or the week after that. The DMV issues trip permits to unregistered vehicles so if you would like a test drive that can be arranged”

Mark’s got this nice looking M-38A1 for sale. You can email him at

“We purchased this 1953 Willys M38A1 from an older Vet who was in an difficult way financially. We did some work on this great piece of history and got it to what I believe is a very clean, wonderfully operating Jeep. We have reworked the fuel system (OEM carburetor rebuild and rebuilt fuel lines, etc.), rebuilt the front end, new wires, plugs, new distributor, a good bit of aesthetics, etc.

We only did a few things that are not “authentic.” I replaced the the wiper motors with new electrical ones, carefully wired through the vacuum hoses (I still have he original vacuum motors if someone wants to reinstall). We also installed a rather good modern radio (with CD, Bluetooth, iPod connection) that is entirely hidden in the glovebox with boxes for speakers I made from 50 cal. ammo boxes. The radio could be easily removed with no damage to the original structure, if someone wanted. Also, I installed a rather well hidden third brake light where a reflector was originally in the middle of the spare tire. Over all, I think the Jeep looks great. (Good enough that my wife’s father was taken aback remembering riding in many like it as a USAF Colonel.) It comes with full canvas, a few extra jerry cans, some extra paint, a tow bar and a protective cover.

It has been a labor of love to restore, with a lot of satisfaction (sometimes following frustration after learning things like how he original manual I used for many tasks published the spark plug order incorrectly). We have enjoyed even more being able to use it for events for Vets, such as wounded warrior and living history events.

1952 M-38 Belle Plaine, MN $9400

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/27/2015) “Very nice flat fender Military Jeep.. Runs good. Solid body. Appears to be very original. 4 wheel drive works great. The M38’s will go just about anywhere. Not much bigger than a 4 wheeler with way more torque. One of the absolute best vehicles off road. Not the best on the road. Great for a cabin or hunting. Has near perfect olive drab cloth top as well. No doors.”
