“1953 army jeep, runs great! Fairly new tires, 24 volt system. Not top on it, I do have an old hard top for it as well as a heating unit if you’re interested.”
That’s one of the more unusual winch setups I’ve seen.
“This is a very nice original military unit, body is very good, runs and drives great, has a brand new brake system, if it is related to brakes it is new, nothing was left out. Runs like a new one, all front undercarriage and steering is new, just get in and drive the hell out of it, military markings and an original ww11 helmet goes with it. call me and lets talk, open to all offers except stupid ones. Please note that in the state of Georgia we do not have titles for anything before 1962, they do issue us registrations which you can get a title from your state using the registration number. When you drive it around everyone salutes or blows their horn with a thumbs up. If you do not want to be noticed then this unit is not for you.”
This may be a good project.
“The Willys was started last winter. It needs work and is not currently operable. Buyer must haul. This is a fair price for this vehicle, so please do not waste your time trying to reduce it.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $1950.
(08/22/2014) Listed as a 1953 M-38A1, the body and grille are from a CJ-5.
“This old military version of the CJ, an MB, has been an incredibly dependable off road warrior for the family for over 30 years. Our 24 yr old daughter learned to drive in it. As the photos show, it has seen better times cosmetically, but the ol’ girl is as capable and reliable as ever. Posi in the front with limited slip in the rear, dual lever transfer case, power saginaw steering, CB, Chey 327 engine, runs strong, always cool with huge old Cadillac radiator, Warn hubs, new brakes all the way around, lots of rubber. Solid Half doors, Heavy tow bar. An old style performer. Restore or drive as is.”

“1952 Willy’s Jeep Forest fire truck;
This is a unique fire truck in that it is a Willy’s Jeep AND easily fits in your garage! Former military unit (ex Marines, I believe). Runs and drives great- needs some TLC for the true Willy’s Jeep detail. It appears to be “shop built” either by military or a fire dept. as a fire pumper, but used a “Barton” front mount 500 gpm conversion kit of the day. The side compartments are ex-ammo boxes!
UPDATE: Price dropped to $2000.
(06/24/2014) The flattie runs, but the CJ-5 does not.
“ have two Jeep Willy’s
No titles for either one.
One is missing part of the body but runs and drives (1951 M38).
Second Willy (1955 CJ-5) did run when parked about 10 years ago. Engine is free not frozen and has full body.
I was going to restore both but no longer have the time and wish to sell them.
I am told that the running Willy is a 1951 M38. The engine has been rebuilt runs good. Brakes all restored and is drivable.
Asking $3500 for both.
Serious buyers only please,”
It’s missing the data plates at the very least.

“1954 Willy’s M38-A1 Military Jeep with a 1952 M102 Trailer. Jeep is titled and plated. Trailer has no title bill of sale only. Over $10,000 invested with most of the receipts. Has been in parades. Runs drives, stops and turns. Low, high, 2 wheel and 4 wheel are work as designed.”
Runs and drives.
“You are looking at a 1952 M38A1 Willies Army Jeep. This jeep would be a great restoration project for some one looking to complete such a project. It is in actually really great condition, it starts and runs with no issues. The drive train is in fine shape and I have drove it many times on public roads. 4 wheel drive works perfectly and transmission has no issues with popping out of gear. The clutch has just been replaced so it is brand new. It is equipped with the original engine, it does probably need a rebuild as the jeep is a little smokey which tells me she is burning a little oil. However it does not seem to be leaking oil all over the ground.
Rust is there, I wont lie she is rusty, but it all for the most part is surface rust that can be removed by a good bead blast. There is no heavy deep rot settling into the frame or the body.
It has been converted to a 12 Volt system however there are still components of the 24 volt system still installed, like the head lights which I am pretty sure were the same ones that were on it the day it left the factory.
It has been repainted on multiple occasions however there are signs of the OD Military paint showing through in various parts under the hood in the engine compartment, body, and drive train. Although the unfortunate side is that all the original data plates have been lost or removed.
It has a clean title and is registered in the State of AZ, I would not recommend driving it home as the tires are around 22 years old and the brakes need some work.
Please email or text me and I can work out some times for people to come by and see it.”
Needs some work.

“1953 M38A1 Jeep
The front end has been updated with a hitch.
“I’m helping my grandpa sell his Vintage Army Jeep. It’s in superb condition for its age, still runs like a champ, and 4×4 works great! 1951 M38 Willys US Army Jeep. It has low miles on the original engine, because it was used by a Commanding General, HQ1. It has a 2.2L four cylinder engine, manual locking hubs, 3 speed manual transmission, and a 2 speed transfer case. The vehicle only has 59,xxx original miles on it! 45,473 M38′s were built from 1950-1952, who knows how many are still drivable. Serious inquires only. This hasn’t been a beater hunting rig. It has been well taken care of. It’s a Classic! If you want to own and drive away with a piece of American History give me a call.”
