1952 M-38 South Carolina $13,500

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

The M-38 looks solid, but that top sure could use some tightening.

“I have a beautiful 1952 willys m38 for sale. This vehicle is ready to drive! It runs and stops beautifully. Its been owned and preserved by a collector since 1969. The vehicle has very little rust. This is one of the nicest m38 I have run across. The body, steps, hat channels , and floors are almost completely rust free just surface. The passenger underseat tool box is rust free(even has the original jack and tire iron). The motor is clean and runs great! It still has the original carb as well as battery box(always missing). Its 24volt and looks to have all original style wiring harness in great shape. The interior has the matching data tags, gauges, switches etc. Lights work. The canvas seats and top looks to be original and are in great shape. The doors, and side curtains can be removed. Very rare to find a Jeep preserved and as complete as this one. It looks like it’s been frozen in time. Haven’t even washed it yet! The 4 wheel drive works great and the transmission shifts smoothly and is tight. The one thing it could use is bushings in the steering box as it is squeaky 15 parts or just a greasing. Clean and clear matching title!”

“This thing rolled of the line in 1952. Built for greatness? Absolutely. It runs like a complete champ. This 3-speed manual shifts incredibly. You’re probably thinking “Oh no it’s a stick, but I don’t know how to drive a stick…” If that’s the case, it’s time for you to sack the heck up… Put on your learning pants and let me teach you one of the most essential life lessons you can have as an American citizen.

Don’t worry the tricky stuff has already been done on this bad to the bone 1952 Willy’s M38 Military Jeep. The tranny has been rebuilt with all new gears. As usual, I’m writing slowly because I know you can’t read fast… Motor was completed prior to me purchasing. While, I’m unsure of how many miles are this thing, I’m sure it’s got some memories. Some of the gauges are working, some are not. Which is pretty common for an almost 70 year old vehicle! I have installed a new alternator, 12 volt battery, and have changed all the bulbs. I do have the old 6 volt generator which will go with it.

All the manuals and original owners handbook will go with the Jeep. This jeep was owned by a retired USAF officer who recently passed. It has been under cover and in storage for a significant amount of time. This Jeep is not perfect, but this is the best M-38 solid restoration candidate I’ve seen in YEARS. Floor boards are BEAUTIFUL and SOLID. Tool Kit floor is PERFECT. The only rust-through on the entire Jeep is in the RR quarter panel at the fender support, and it’s minor, as shown in the pictures. Authentic U.S. Army markings still intact and legible. The windshield frame is flawless, the glass is excellent. This Jeep even has the winter top bows installed for the winterization kit and the tracks on the windshield frame and the bottom door tracks.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

Craig spotted this one. It has some rust, but given the completeness and condition of everything else, this is definitely worth a look.

“1951 Willys Jeep, runs and drives. Looks good, it needs a few things but at 65 years old we all need a few things. I’ve seen much worse go for much more, so $5k is reasonable for condition. Has canvas top (not shown). Tires are almost new.
$5k cash
Reason for selling, it’s my Dad’s and he can no longer drive, so I’m selling for him.
Clear title.
You must come in person, no checks of any kind. No BS. If you text that fine, I’m going to tell you in my reply to call me. I’d rather talk than text, it weeds out all the scamers.”

Looks solid. You can buy the M-38 for only $8500 by itself.

“I have a older restoration. 1950 M38 done 30 years ago when nos parts were easy, with summer top, grc 9 radio set, back seat ect. Its 100 % rust free and stright with no bondo, one of the best m38 I bought then. now the bad news, I used it 30 years ago to drive into my silver mine (worked great) and then parked it in the barn, were it has sat since. So the gas is ugly, batterys are shot, tires do hold air and look great with 100 % tread. (but they are still 30 years old) brakes dont work, the seals will need replacing. I now need the storage and the jeep has to go , price is 8500.00 there is also a M100 1/4 trailer for sell. The m100 trailer is real nice, right hitch, cover, used it with my m38 jeep, the trailer has not moved in 30 years, been stored inside the barn. I need the space. The good, body, paint, hitch,fenders ect , not so good, tire shop broke 3 lung nuts, studs years ago to fix a flat so the lugs need to be replaced, the floor is a little wavy (nothing bad but it is not 100% new, I used it to haul my supply in to the mine )1800.00 or if you buy the jeep and trailer 9800.00 Please no tire kickers, I only want monny, no trades, and I dont need any help to sell the jeep. In short if you dont have the cash dont call. ”

“Okay, you’ve decided you want a classic Military Jeep but you don’t want to pay restored or Family Heirloom prices…
You’ve looked for a long time (off and on) but you just can’t quite put yourself in the right frame of mind with the right Jeep that fits your tight budget. You need to ask yourself, “Am I able to accept something that I can fix and or restore while I’m using it ?” or “Do I need to pay more for one that is all done?”. Most Flat Fender “wannabees” tend to be in the $5,000 to $12,000 range for a “Useable Driver” that doesn’t have major rust or body damage.

Here it is! It’s a “Runner Driver” that looks and acts the part. Granted, …it’s not perfect, but it really is better than most you’ve seen and it’s at a reasonable price.
The Jeep has an out of state Wisconsin title so you need to bring it up to date in the state of California.

Originally the Jeep cost over $11,000 so our loss is your gain. You better not pass on this one because it won’t last at this price.

The engine runs good and doesn’t smoke but the compression numbers are tired but not out of the game. Probably could use a valve adjustment, one valve taps when cold but diminishes as it warms up.”

1952 M-38 Vermont No Price

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/10/2017) Seller has other military vehicles and items for sale, too.

I am selling my Willys M38 Jeep that was finished as a MB clone. This 1952 military jeep was built for the Korean war and is a true military jeep, but this one has the MB grille/bucket lights and older style windshield added. 

Many new parts. The Willys runs and drives well and is parade ready. No oil leaks to speak of. Maybe one or two drips at the most. I drive this jeep every other day to the store and everybody honks and waves. This is a great jeep for you to have fun with the kids and grandkids as it has all the safety upgrades, such as blinkers, tail lights, seat belts, head lights, black out lights, and horn. 

This jeep starts every time winter or summer. 4×4 works as it should. Not perfect, but ready to drive and have fun with. It cruises about 40 mph. The speedometer reads about 8 mph too fast so you’ll think you’re driving 48 mph! Clean Kansas Title. 

If you arrange shipping, I can drive it to a local car dealership if needed. Buyer arranges all the shipping and pays the costs. Jeep will not be released until all money is received and cash is in the bank. I am also open to taking a $1,000 down payment and then the rest of the payment on pickup. Throw me a note before buying it out and we can figure it out. – See more at: http://www.warjeeps.com/mjs/sale17/adm011/adm011.html#sthash.9lVRpkBG.dpuf ”
