It’s a solid looking M-38 with very little rust. I know the seller just washed this just before taking these photos. I don’t understand letting water sit in the jockey box underneath the seat and a few other rust prone places shown in the photos?





“1951 M38 Army Jeep – Original Condition – Runs and Drives – RUST FREE!

The following have been done for drivability and safety. 1. New brake shoes and wheel cylinders. 2. New rubber and S-shaped metal brake lines. 4. NOS master cylinder 5. New fuel sending unit (correct M38 one). 6. Complete wash of vehicle to remove about 1/2″ of dust and other stuff that had accumulated on the M38 over the years of being in storage.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.



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

This jeep was rescued from a gentleman in North Jersey in 2013. He had begun to restore the jeep but got in over his head. I purchased it and it underwent a frame off rebuild.

I’ve owned over thirty flat fender jeeps and have restored approx. 25 of them and have sold them successfuly on e-Bay. This Jeep had an excellent 1951 M38 frame and drive train including a correct MC marked engine. The engine was professionally rebuilt by Sigafoos Rebuilders in Easton, PA. The tranny was rebuilt by me and the transfer case and axles have had new seals, bearings, and fluids as needed.

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

Chassis and Drive Train: new leaf springs front and rear, new shackles, new shocks, new axle bumpers, frame stripped/blasted and painted, new front bumper, new rear crossmember, new clutch and bearing, new seals and bearings on tranny(rebuilt) 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 shoes, lines and hoses, new master cylinder, four new wheel cylinders. Rebuilt steering box and drag link and original steering wheel, original rear bumperettes, original pintle hook. 4 new STA 7.00×16 NDCC tires and an authentic original Goodyear spare tire – all on 16″ original rims.

Engine: Completely professionally rebuilt. professionally rebuilt civilian WO Carter Carb, new civilian fuel pump, rebuilt manifolds and new gaskets, new 12 volt alternator, new period correct wiring(not military), new battery, new hoses, new fan belt, new 180 degree t-stat, new temp. gauge, new ammeter, new fuel gauge and sender, new fuel lines, new plugs and wires. Radiator professionally tanked/cleaned repaired and painted.

Body: Authentic Willys M38 body; original tub, fenders, grill, windshield including glass with new rubber seal, reproduction hood and tailgate, original front seat frames with repro rear seat frame, new fuel tank, original top bows, new brackets and hardware, new canvas top and seat covers (All canvas is Beachwood canvas), repro. shovel and axe, original correct dated gas can, rebuilt authentic drive blackout light and new grill blackout lights, rebuilt headlights and NOS tail-lights, new dashboard data plates, original body serial number tag.

Misc: Vehicle is wired for 12V civilian use, all new gauges, including speedometer, all lights, all new switches work properly (except brand new military style light switch is not connected to the new wiring- a new modern fused two pull switch is connected to new wiring.) . Water fording system was not installed. Jeep has proper vacuum windshield wipers installled and working.

Vehicle includes the pioneer tools(shovel and axe). Vehicle Does not have a title. Mileage is unknown, but regardless of odometer reading (approx. 0 miles) this Jeep is better than motor pool, almost like it just came off the assembly line.

The only thing left to do with this vehicle is have fun driving it and possibly outfit it with some Korean War Era paraphernalia.”

1952 M-38 Flintstone, GA $10,000

Looks like a good jeep.

I have for sale a 1952 Willys M38. It was restored about 6 months ago, but I would say it is 98% done. What I mean is it has no decals on it, no add-ons, etc. I wanted to keep it “base” form so whoever bought it can take it and put there personal touches on it. This is not a true M38 restoration. What I mean by that is it has been converted over to an alternator and 12-volt system, it has blinkers both front and rear, it has lockout hubs on the front axle, etc. Just a few little things that makes it easy on the owner and easy to take off down the road in.
This was a full frame-off restoration. Everything was sand blasted and re painted. The original tub was rusted far way beyond repair. I actually found a super-nice M38 tub that I picked up in Pennsylvania. The L-134 “Go Devil” engine was rebuilt with all new bearings are rings, etc. The T-90 transmission, Dana 18 transfercase, and both Dana axles also have all new bearings and seals. The gauges are all new, new wiring harness ($$$), new tires ($$$), new fuel tank ($$$), new exhaust, new driveshafts, new brakes, new seats, new weather stripping, new everything. It is really a nice Jeep. It does not have a top or a rear seat, I just never got around to getting those and I like having my dog ride in the back so I didn’t bother.

Like I said, it is 98% done. I literally “finished it” and took it home, it still has just a few kinks that need to be worked out. The fuel-sending unit and the fuel gauge are both new, but the fuel gauge isn’t registering. I just haven’t taken the time to check it. If it sits for a few weeks, it can be hard to start, it does have a choke but you almost have to choke it by hand and then it fires up, almost like the choke doesn’t choke it all the way. And lastly I did use the factory starter and it works pretty good, but it can act goofy from time to time, I should have just put a new one on it.
It really is a super-nice Willys M38. Not a 100% military restoration, but practical. I have only had it done for about 6 months now but I am just not that interested in it anymore. Plus, I am a big guy and these army Jeep are pretty cramped, I am just not comfortable in it. I have only put 15 miles on it since it was restored. I am asking $10,000 or best reasonable offer. This is a military vehicle, Bill of Sale only, no title. It is currently tagged in Georgia.”

The seller listed the price at $20,000, but the seller mentions potential buyers shouldn’t bid unless serious about buying. So, I guess he is taking bids?
