1951 M-38 Bremerton, WA $1500


Includes a Warn overdrive.

“1951 Willys M38 project. No engine. Twin-stick transfer case, Warn overdrive unit. Brand new Rancho suspension. Tires are old but have almost no miles on them. I have the headlight buckets and trim also. This jeep is going to require a lot of work to put together. I bit off more than I can handle. I bought it from a junk yard, so there isn’t a title until it gets put together and inspected by the highway patrol.

This jeep had a carbureted 302 in it when I bought it, so that’s what the motor mounts are. I bought a fuel injected 302 to put in it, but never did. ”

1952 M-38 Odessa, NY $4300


Between “Excellent Project” and “Blue Chip Investment” the seller is overselling this one.

“Fresh from the barn serial# 65627 of 72329 very scarce model of the M38. Super solid frame some floor pan rust lots of dents and some tore sheet metal. The previous owner told me it was running 10 years ago when it was parked. The engine is free. It was converted to 12volt. I am selling it as found the gas tank is very rusty inside. Like I said this is begging for a total restoration these are becoming the next blue chip investment. I do have a transferable N.Y. title.”

1951 M-38 Washington, IA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

There’s some parts value here at the very least.

“I have a barn find 1951 Willy’s Jeep. It was my Dad’s. It ran about 3-4 years ago. It does not currently run. I think the fuel system is gummed up. The title says 1968 but I was told that it is a 51 but when it was sold from the military/government it was in 1968 thus the date on the title. With a little TLC I believe this would be a great Jeep. It has been stored inside I just pulled it outside for better pictures.”

1950 M-38 Auburn, CA Auction

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

Art spotted this almost stock M-38 with a Stewart Warner heater.

1950 Willys M38 Model MC Arctic Jeep 4 X 4. Serial # MC 30993. Mileage reads 68,059. Powered by the original 4 cylinder Go Devil engine. 3 speed manual transmission with 2 speed transfer case and locking hubs. This is an actual Military issue Arctic model Jeep with the rear body reinforcement panels. The top and doors are removable and the heater can be run without starting the Jeep (heater has not been tested but is reported to be working). This Jeep starts easily and runs good, the transmission works as it should.

The Willy’s M38 Jeeps were only built from 1949 to 1952 and this is a nice example of a Korea War vintage Jeep with an unusual Arctic service upgrade. To watch the video.”

1953 M-38A1 Atlanta, GA $15,000

UPDATE: Price dropped to $15,000.

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.

0We 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.
