“1951 willys m38 24v Korean War era Jeep. Jeep is complete and needs a full tune up-batteries to get going again. It has sat in my garage the past 1.5 years in hopes of working on it. I have not touched it due to work. It has the original drivetrain and body hardware you would hope to find. It has the original Jerry can, spare tire, Canvas top with removable side panels and doors, canvas is in nice original condition on both front and rear seats as well as top.

Newer harness-comes with brand new one and parts. Motor turns freely by hand almost zero if any leaks. The Jeep Ran in 2018 as the previous owner got a tail light ticket. It was his fathers civil defense Jeep and it was painted as such. It has vinyl decals that can be removed. The only body work I’ve found has been a small metal plate in the tool box, passenger floor and axe indent have had some work. Great start for some one to drive or restore. If I get it running 11,000 make offer as if your interested”

1952 M-38 Schertz, TX $16,000

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”.

“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!”

1950 M-38 Astoria, OR $8000 ??Scam??

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , , .

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 ….

1952-m38-gilbert-az4

“1952 M-38 95% restored. If you are looking for a fun collector car, or if you like to have people wave as you drive down the road, this is the jeep for you.

M38 was a Korean War era Jeep that was only in production for 2.5 years. Original Body tub. All wires redone front to back. New gauges, gauge cluster, exhaust, fuel lines, fuel tank, brakes, new original wheels, new tires, upholstery, windshield, windshield seal, pintle hook, antenna, starter, solenoid, carburetor rebuild, new air intake, pioneer gear (axe/shovel). I have original data plate, and paint for touch up. This is great in a parade or to advertise your business!

I have clean title, so you dont have to worry about inspection or anything.

The only thing not original on this jeep is that it was converted to 12 volt (regular battery works) and we added seat belts and turn signals, and a horn that makes a fun sound.

I have had in the family for 30 years. Only selling, because I am tired of having too much stuff and I just dont drive it enough to enjoy it like I used to.

NO TRADES, I do not need help selling. Cash or verifiable cashiers check. I have title and Im ready to sell. Buy it before I change my mind!”
