1952 M-38 Belle Plaine, MN $9400

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/27/2015) “Very nice flat fender Military Jeep.. Runs good. Solid body. Appears to be very original. 4 wheel drive works great. The M38’s will go just about anywhere. Not much bigger than a 4 wheeler with way more torque. One of the absolute best vehicles off road. Not the best on the road. Great for a cabin or hunting. Has near perfect olive drab cloth top as well. No doors.”

“We are selling our original 1951 Willy’s Army Jeep. This jeep has the original Overland Jeep Arctic Top and Doors and gas heater. It is in the same condition as when I bought it 6 years ago. All I have done is replace spark plugs, submergable wires and batteries. I have enjoyed this jeep, have only driven it in a few parades. You can view the jeep on youtube to see it run. I welcome any and all questions, so please ask. I am not a jeep mechanic, and I do not know alot about them. I am just a military enthusiast. Nor have I read all the books. I know enough to enjoy the jeep. So please ask questions.

“I have for sale a military 1949 jeep Willys. It’s all original, was running and driving about a year ago.(it just sits now) me and my boss had plans to restore it, but business comes first and have no time for it now. Obviously it needs a little attention for someone wanting it 100% restored.
There isn’t much rust on this jeep, most of it is surface rust. It just needs to be sandblasted and painted.
**i have a hardtop and both doors*
Very nice jeep to be original and 67yrs old. ”

“I orig. purchased this to build an offroad vehicle and then found out it was an actual M38 Military Willys that was only made from 50′ to 52′ and not just a normal cj2a-3a jeep so I have decided to move it on hopefully to a collector of this type of vehicle as it would be a shame to cut up a piece of history , It has been updated/changed over the years so it is not 100% original but it wouldn’t take much for the military Jeep collector to return it to stock , In its current state it runs and yard drives enough to move it around or load it on a trailer due to it needing tires and some carb tinkering/tune-up work , Continue reading
