“All original!! Original four-cylinder 60hp motor, all lights in working order that air raid light/blackout light is the light on the fender as well as the headlights even the gauge lights work! Tires are almost new but I have been driving it quite a bit lately… Original windshield wipers that are exhaust fed, original front and rear seats, original plates on the dashboard As well as all the brackets on the bumpers for lifting and towing… original even down to the front tow rope. Too many extra list!

Mechanically this jeep is amazing! The brakes have been re-done recently you can see it in the photos… This jeep goes maximum speed of 50 miles an hour most of these jeeps only go 30 to 35… It’s reliable starts every time even when it hasn’t been driven for weeks! Transmission is great all the gears work including the low and high, all the axles work, this is a running machine and I’ve been using it to drive my daughter to school each day and take the family out on rides on the weekends.

No tire kickers please serious inquiries only! I don’t have time for time wasters that have a lot of questions and want to talk about history… Serious callers only… Text is great and if we want to proceed we can talk on the phone…”

1952 M-38 Schertz, TX $16,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

A variety of extras are included on this M-38. The windshield seems like it leans back a little farther than it should. I’ve never heard the term “Restored to Combat Class”.

http://www.warjeeps.com/mjs/sale20/adm024/adm024.html

1952-m38-schertz-tx

“Has original parts, 24 volt system. Many original add-on’s that make this a unique find. Please see photos and review the video for running Jeep featuring a narrative from the owner and a full scope of all that is included with this sale.

Several of your inquiries have been to include further photos of what items are extra in my Dads large bin that comes with the Jeep. I’ve put many more photos in the ad now, several items most likely will have no interest to you, nevertheless they come with the Jeep.

I’ve personally never looked at the underside of the Jeep until I took these photos, it is not that easy to snap these upside down, but I did my best. I should tell you that it will have a few areas I know that need to be sanded, I believe on the right front passenger side on the undercarriage. The Jeep has been sitting several years without care, covered, but still without my dads care due to his illnesses, and I know he has not been able to maintain or do further work that he had planned on completing with the Jeep. But, all things considered, it’s not a shiny showpiece, however, it is one heck of a Jeep!

We’d Love to hear from you, make your best offer!”

UPDATE: This jeep was auctioned at some point on Mecum

Looks like a great price, maybe too good of a price. Something doesn’t seem right about this ad. Who advertises a mint M-38 by describing it with a “front tow package”? And, I’m not seeing an obvious tow package. This might be a scam ….
