Wendell’s got his jeep for sale. It’s a project.
“S/N 62215. 36,412 miles. Owned since 2005. Windshield is the split type common to the CJ2A. I relocated the spare tire mount to the side, also common to the CJ2A so the tailgate would be more functional. Started the restoration 3 years ago. Stripped it down to the frame, sandblasted, primed and painted it the original olive drab. Everything relative to the brake system is new. Everything relative to both axles was removed, restored or replaced with new parts. New shocks. When I took it off, if it needed replaced I ordered it then, so I have most everything already bought. This is not a rust bucket like most you see! A little rust in the bed and the drivers floorboard is all there is and the metal is solid underneath. Upholstery is in very good shape. I have a summer top not shown. The paint is actually very good. You can see in the pictures that I polished the hood and the color came out. Further painting would be optional. The engine has been disassembled and the head and block tested. Found 4 broke rings. Everything relative to the engine is perfect, even the bearings. Standard rings will go back. Tranny/transfer case have no issues either. I have taken it as far as I can. I need the space in my garage so it has to go. This is a solid Willys and will make someone a fine jeep.”
Mark just listed this over at warjeeps.com.

“1952 Willy’s M38 Jeep, good condition”
Doesn’t run. No title. Might make a good restoration.
“For Sale: 1950-1952 Willys M38. This is an authentic M38 military jeep. It has an MC, “Marine Corps” data plate with legible serial number mounted directly to the front of the right rear wheel housing, inside the tub, exactly where it should be.
This was a “radio jeep,” that is to say it was a “commo” vehicle, adapted for use with a mobile radio and transmitter. The only thing left of the radio equipment is the original antenna mount bracket above the spare tire mount and the rear box mounts in the body.
The jeep is complete, original and is a rolling chassis. 4×4, hubs, linkage and shifters actuate as they should. Driveline itself is complete. The drivetrain is original to the frame, as is the body tub, folding Front windshield frame, front fenders and grill. It has had a 12V conversion, and the wiring has been redone to the front headllights. It does have the “blackout” drive light on the left front fender, glove box, dash panel, glove box and body tub hand-holds. It does have the sealed ports on the differentials, blackout lights, MIL Spec light switch and the water-proof ignition. It also has the cut-outs in the hood for the snorkel kit and skid plates are installed.
Frame is in excellent condition, front to back, and HAS NOT been modified. Motor is free spinning with no knocks, and the jeep has been in covered storage for 25+ years.
No title, being sold on Bill Of Sale only.
Condition: Total Restoration Required. Needs everything and will need considerable investment to make roadworthy. There is rust, where they typically rust, but nothing that is not restorable. What you are getting is a complete, original Willys M38 + many spare parts.”
Runs and drives.
“1951 JEEP WILLYS M38 from the Korean War. It started right up today. Also for

(11/17/2015) This appears to be the same jeep that was sold a few years ago, but it’s condition appears to be worsened. If it has the “314” on the fenders, then it is the same one.
“1954 Willys Jeep it is actually a Mp38a it has a Buick 231 odd fire V6 with power steering also has headers. It is 3 speed manual with twin stick transfer case At one point it was the brookville Fire dept. grass unit. It is great running and driving jeep it has a lot of new front end parts on it.

“1952 Willys M38a1 ‘Army Jeep’
Full frame off restoration. Everything was rebuilt or replaced with NOS or new parts. Too much to list.
Jeep is fully functioning 24 volt waterproof electrical, great running 134 Hurricane engine, excellent driving and show quality paint.
I never thought I would sell. The only item that is unfinished is the vacuum system for the wipers. Only needs a hose. I was never going to drive in the rain.
Price is starting at $12,500 which is less than I have in it or the parts would be worth separate. Text or call for a viewing.
Little list of work done:
The body was removed and any rust was cutout and welded in new metal or replaced whole pieces, such as both fount fenders and the gas tank sump. Frame was striped bare and coated with POR-15 rust inhibitor. Engine was also painted with POR engine enamel.
All wiring is new, bought from Vintage wiring of ME. It’s all waterproof with mil-style connectors. The generator and distributor are NOS 24 volt, with new coil and points. Brand new fuel tank and fuel and vacuum lines. New water pump, fuel pump, oil pump, clutch, radiator, hoses, belts and ect. All new brake components: master, caliper, shoes, drums, and lines. New or NOS lights, all functioning. All new bearings/seals in burfield hubs and Warn lock out hubs. New axle on right front. NOS vacuum wiper motors. Brand new top and seat covers. Brand new tires. Gauges are new or NOS. New windshield and gasket. I believe the decals correlate to my fathers unit in Vietnam, although he was in a helicopter and not a M38a1.”

“Rare original NEKAF M381A Willy’s military jeep assembled in Netherlands for the Dutch army. Runs and drives perfect. This is an all original jeep. You will not find another in such good shape.
Best reasonable offer buys.
The vehicle with the longest service record in the Dutch military, serving in the Royal Army for more than 40 years from 1952 until 1996, is the M38A1 Jeep. During and shortly after World War II, the Dutch army used jeeps left behind by American forces. By the early 1950’s however, the army was looking for a replacement, and in 1952 received a number of U.S.-built M38A1’s under the Mutual Defence Assistance Program. Continue reading
