Year? M-38A1 Klamath Falls, OR $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.”

1952 M-38 San Francisco, CA $4800


No pics provided.

“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.
4,800 obo”

1951 M-38 Jackson, MS $2200


Mark listed this over at

“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.”

1952 M-38A1 Fire Jeep Ladera Ranch, CA $12,900

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

Looks nice.

“1952 Willys Jeep/ M38A1 (former Military/early CJ) converted to Brush Fire pumper somewhere along the way. I don’t have much history on this vehicle. But, Drives great, pump disconnected for now, but does work. New Paint 2 years ago. (NOTE; PHOTOS SHOW FORMER UPPER HOSE TRAY, HOSE REEL AND TANK WHICH HAVE BEEN REMOVED AND SCRAPPED, REPLACED WITH SECOND SEAT IN REAR WITH MATCHING FRONT SEAT UPHOLSTERY) Now a GREAT truck for parades with the family or cruising the hills of California, or wherever. Fits in any garage!

Other details; Original 4 cyl Willys engine, transmission (3spd) high/ low range, 4 WD (though I’ve never locked front axles, all instruments work along with all electrical working.

History; I’m about the 3rd owner, purchased about 10 years ago from FF in CT. who purchased it from person in PA. As mentioned, definitely a former military M38A1 that was retrofitted as a fire pumper. Some base yellow paint on frame may point to it serving on air base or carrier? No other history known.

Reason for selling; Wife says the toybox is too full and it messes up her hair at 45mph.

Just a fun truck that is really unique. Feel free to email with any questions.”

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.”

1952 M-38A1 Shipshewana, IN $1600


Nick shared this one.

“For sale is a 1952 Willys M38A1, the first year produced. I bought this Jeep a few days ago and was told it ran less than a year ago, and just needed batteries. The story goes a farmer bought this Jeep to use on his blueberry farm. After bringing it home I cleaned the entire Jeep out, topped off the transmission, and got intimidated with the electrics. I’m not sure if this is 24V like original or converted 12V, but the wiring needs all gone through. The gas tank should be cleaned out, and I would guess a new fuel pump. I’ve owned a dozen flat-fender Jeeps and always wanted to try an M38A1, but it was more work than I anticipated for a weekend project before driving back down to campus.

This Jeep is perfect for an off-road or farm toy. The transmission is free and the shifter moves nicely, I could push the Jeep around with ease. When I topped off the tranny, the gears looked pretty clean. Engine is free as well. I crawled all under the frame and it’s solid. It looks like there’s a plow mechanism that’s still hooked up on the front. The tires have dry rot but have been holding air pretty well, and have plenty of tread left. These are the larger 7×16 tires.

From a historical standpoint, this is also a great basis for a restoration project. The entire drivetrain is original military with the correct engine and transmission. You can even see the USMC hood numbers peering through the hood paint. It looks like this Jeep at one time during service had a snorkel, which the hole in the hood was for. The front-half body is in great shape with little rust, and the tub could be repaired or replaced.

I also have a clear title. I’m asking $1600 firm. Feel free to call/text me anytime, and if I don’t answer I’ll get back with you shortly.”
