“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.
