1952 M-38 Streator, IL … Off Market for Now

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: John reports he plans to get a valve repaired. Once that is done he’ll be relisting this for sale again.

This has a PTO gearbox, but I see no sign of a winch or other equipment. Dave suggests it might be the overdrive lever, which seems like a clever idea if that’s the case. It looks in good shape.

“For sale, 1952 M38 jeep. Nine year old frame off restoration. Have all the original receipts from original restoration plus what I have put into it. Engine was rebuilt also. Has minor master cylinder leak (have new one) new brakes in 2018, new water pump in 2019. New rear pinion seal in 2019. Has overdrive. Have some other new steering parts I just haven’t put on. Has been kept in heated garage since I’ve had it and never seen rain. Have some fording parts for air cleaner and exhaust. Has couple typical jeep oil leaks but small.

My knee won’t take the clutch pedal anymore so I’m selling it. Couple of the gauges should be replaced. Located in Streator Illinois. (So now with all that being said , guess what I did? I went to take a compression check on the engine just so I could post it. I haven’t used the compression gauge in 30 some years. The gauge came with a couple of adaptors. I failed to notice that the one on the gauge was longer than the other. I think it was too long and broke a valve spring or bent the valve. It has no compression. The other three have 110 pounds each. This engine probably doesn’t have 3,500 miles on it and I know it’s good, just my dumb not paying attention has messed it up) im willing to take offers as it is but if not I guess I have a winter project)”

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!”

A reader alerted me to this one. I am told it was recently listed at $10,000 by the former owner. It’s now listed at $25,000 by someone who appears to believe this is a WWII jeep. Maybe the $25k isn’t a serious price, as the seller is willing to negotiate.
