“Take a look at this completely rebuilt beautiful 1951 Willys M38 Army Jeep. Serial # MC33376

This jeep was rescued from a gentleman in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 2012. It underwent a frame off rebuild. I’ve owned over thirty jeeps and have rebuilt/restored approx. 22 of them and have sold them successfully on e-Bay. This Jeep had been used heavily during it’s active life and was in desperate need of rebuild. (I’ve included two before pictures towards the bottom of the listing) The frame and drive train were complete but needed some repair work. The engine is a correct MC engine made by Willys of France in excellent shape – it runs great and is very powerful. I had to replace the tub with a reproduction tub, but most of the other components are original Willys. (i.e. fenders, hood, grill, windshield, seat frames). The jeep has its military components de-commissioned – i.e. water fording gear removed, and 24 volt converted to 12 volts, civilian WO carburetor .

Everything has been gone through on this jeep and everything has been sand blasted, cleaned, repainted, or replaced with new, NOS, or repro parts.

Chassis and Drive Train: four new leaf springs , new shackles, new shocks, new axle bumpers, frame stripped/blasted and painted, some components repaired (used some similar CJ3A parts) new front bumper, new u-joints, new clutch and bearing, new seals and bearings on tranny and transfer case which were drained and cleaned repainted, and all fluids and gaskets replaced, new e-brake pads, hardware, and cable, new engine/tranny mounts, new brakes including all lines and hoses, new master cylinder, four new wheel cylinders. New steering wheel, new rear bumperettes, authentic pintle hook. Five vintage 7.00×16 NDCC tires (they are older but in great shape)on blasted and painted 16” original rims.

1952 M-38 Detroit, MI $9000

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This looks like a good restoration project, but the engine is stuck.

“1952 Jeep M38 This is one of the nicest M38’s to come along in a long time. NO RUST! Solid all the way around except for the large transmission cover panel. I have included a different one to replace it.
If you have ever wanted an easy project that would result in a top of the line restoration, don’t wait.
Very complete, only missing a few minor cosmetic items. The engine is stuck from sitting. All the 24V electrics are intact. This jeep originally had the arctic heater package on it which is why the cowl vent panel is not on the windshield.

1952 M-38 Hershey, PA $5000

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This hasn’t been started in a while, but looks like it is a good use-as-is or restoration project.

“1952 Willys M38 Jeep.
I bought this as a future project over 12 years ago and while the future is here, I have not started the project.
I bought the jeep from Montana and since I have had it it has always been stored indoors. Due to the hard top, it is in great condition as far as rust goes.
I have started and driven the jeep so know the mechanical work but have not started it in probably 2 years.

GOOD
Clear MN title (I am from MN originally)
Remarkably rust free for the age
Mechanically sound

Not so good
Much of the M38 specific equipment is missing
There are some dents and dings from 60 years of use
Due to the age and probably lack of use, it tends to mark it’s territory.

Don’t know if this is good, not so good or just interesting but looks like this was an arctic jeep. I can’t say exactly what that entails but there is some additional heating components inside that are “interesting” I think it is a somewhat unusual military modification for the cold. Explains the hard top as well.”
