Given the warn overdrive, there is some value.

2 M-38A1s Snohomish, WA $3000


No pics provided. Lots of parts.

“1952 & 1953 M38A1 Willys Military Jeeps plus tons of extra parts!!! Moving and getting rid of my projects. I have 2 jeeps with titles, plus extra windshields (even a tilt out one), axles, seats (including a rear military fold down one), etc. I also have a brand new lift kit, adapters from Trans-Adapt to install a Chevy V8 & Turbo 350 Auto transmission, Willys transmissions, transfer cases, extra frame and lots of extra parts – Tilt steering, military gas tank & a rear gas tank from a CJ5, black out lights, too much to list it all – One of the frames has been boxed and body parts for one of the jeeps has been media blasted, but not primered, so there is some surface rust –

Also, I have an original metal hard top and a Hurricane F-head 4cyl. engine that was running when pulled – I’m sure I’m forgetting to list some things because there is so much included with this package – I may even be able to throw in a running Chevy 350 V8 or a 2.8 V6 with the deal – You will need a tow dolly and a truck or a car trailer to pick these up as they are mostly in pieces – One does roll and is in the process of being built – Call, text or email with questions, however cell service is not great here, so texting works best -”

Year? M-38 Greenville, SC No Price


No title or data plates.

“I’ve got a early 50’s Willys M38 I’d like to sell. Trying to clear some room for more jeeps hah, and this one deserves a good home. Only made from 50-52 for the military with less than 45,000 ever made. Tool indents are there and that area is in good shape. It’s essentially a CJ-3A with tool indents made for the military. The tub and frame are in good shape for the most part. Has rust but very restorable or just get going like it is. Pervious owner just used on the farm. Was last driven a couple years ago, it will need to be gone through. Hood has a ridiculous scoop on it where someone at some point in this jeeps life had swapped a later model F head motor in it. But does have the L head in it now. Tires old air. Everything is there except for the windshield and seats. There are some kind of seats in there now not sure what they came from. No data plates or title. Just a bill of sale. A cool jeep that needs some love. I was going to keep it but I have another and I need space. ”

1951 M-38 Bossier City, LA $6000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $6000.

(05/16/2015) The grille and frame appear to be M-38, but the body and windshield aren’t.

“For sale is an M38 Jeep. I hate to part with it, but I can’t give it the attention and care it deserves with a new kid and an upcoming move. I’ve owned the Jeep for just under two years, and during that time I’ve spent a lot of time refurbishing the electrical system, oil pressure lines, and hand brake. Additionally, I’ve purchased new gauges, NOS tail lights, master light control switch, seat belts, and more… The motor is an aftermarket L-134 that runs GREAT! The Jeep has a clear title and is ready for a quick and easy sale. If you’re an American, have a passion for Jeeps and their history, and want a great M38… then this the perfect summer purchase for you!”

“This 1954 Willys Jeep M38A1 was recently discovered in a U.S. Government Warehouse in Logan, Utah, And had been stored there since 1986 !!

It was Manufactured by Willys–Overland (MB) in 1954. Officially called by U.S. Military a Willys M38A1 or Willys MD, it was the first “round fender” Willys.

The Willys M38A1 or (MD) was built from 1952 until 1957 for the U.S. military forces and from 1958 until 1971 for export to foreign governments. The United States Marine Corps continued to order and use the M38A1 until 1971. The M38A1 was so well liked, they introduced the CJ-5 in 1955 based on its design.

1952 M-38A1 Belgrade Lakes, ME $4500


There seems to be some value. Neither runs at the moment.

“Selling two 1952 M38A1’s. Project started on the red one frame is original with no repairs just sandblasted and coated in POR15. Body is in fantastic shape. The green one I originally bought for parts and the MD engine as the tub is shot. All parts are military for both jeeps aside from the CJ-5 F-head and an aftermarket roll bar. Both engines ran when I bought the jeeps and were fogged before storage. Also included are some transmission rebuild parts and several gallons of sealed paint and primer. Maxed out the pictures but there are more parts included. Looking to get $4500 or best reasonable offer cash only, any questions I will do my best to answer.”

Looks pretty original.

“Great Korean War vintage 1952 M38 Jeep. This is military surplus, not a CJ-2 civilian model. Very fun to drive, unrestored, all original except for a new gas tank. New batteries, 24v system. Great to run around the farm or put in a parade. Dull OD green, not a shiney finish to attract the enemies’ attention. My wife did not like driving it near as much as I did.”
