“I’m helping my grandpa sell his Vintage Army Jeep. It’s in superb condition for its age, still runs like a champ, and 4×4 works great! 1951 M38 Willys US Army Jeep. It has low miles on the original engine, because it was used by a Commanding General, HQ1. It has a 2.2L four cylinder engine, manual locking hubs, 3 speed manual transmission, and a 2 speed transfer case. The vehicle only has 59,xxx original miles on it! 45,473 M38’s were built from 1950-1952, who knows how many are still drivable. Serious inquires only. This hasn’t been a beater hunting rig. It has been well taken care of. It’s a Classic! If you want to own and drive away with a piece of American History give me a call.”

“This 1951 Willys M38 is an excellent restoration candidate. It was in storage in Texas for about 20 years. It does have one small rust hole in the tub under the gas tank but otherwise its in very solid condition. The engine is not the original but it is the proper L Head 134 and it runs very well. It runs and drives, but needs the brake master cylinder replaced, I have a new one for it. Converted to 12 volt, but I do have a few 24v components to go with it.
Georgia does not issue titles for vehicles this old so it will be sold with a bill of sale and the previous owner’s TX title and paperwork. The vehicle has been inspected by a GA law enforcement officer and its serial number certified.
If not local call first please. This is a rare military jeep that needs the right owner who is going to preserve or restore it. Most jeeps of this vintage have been chopped up or rusted away. This is a good one! I have a set of spare axles that go with it for the asking price.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8500.
