UPDATE: UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4500
(09/02/2013) It needs some work, but looks promising.
“I have for sale a 1952 Willys M38 Military jeep. It has a Tennessee title. The jeep needs brakes, exhaust leak fixed and the gas tank cleaned and sealed. This jeep is 24 volt electrical system with all the electrical parts still there. It runs and drives but does not stop. It has the following original hard to find parts: all three seat frames, top bows, top bow brackets, all blackout lights, pintle hitch, jerry can and holder, spare tire carrier, windshield wipers, front and rear lifting shackles, brush guards, horn, carburetor, under hood battery box, oil bath air breather, and many others. The tool box needs to be rebuilt for it has rust through. This could be a daily driver or a good jeep to restore”
The seller is a little off on the details, but this is worth a look. Looks like a custom dash plate was added.
“I’m selling my dads pride and joy. It runs great. It is a mb3. It has a foctory boxed frame. The origonal flat head ford 4 cylinder. It has the very rare aluminum top. It has a back seat as well. Its a great little jeep. Feel free to make offers. Only serious buyers please. We are selling it to help myvmom pay for my dads funeral bills”
Except for the bent front bumper it looks good.
“I am posting this Jeep for a friend of mine. He has got to the point that he can’t drive anymore and has decided to let it go. It has a matching covered utility trailer. It’s just as it was when first produced. Had radio, spare gas tank etc. Runs great and everything works.”

(07/08/2012) The seller notes that he is the first civilian owner. There are pictures of it apart and together; I’m assuming it is together?

(06/21/2013) This appears solid. I lightened the driver’s side of the photo, so some of the white spots might be there because of that process.

Bryan has rebuilt another nice looking M-38. Includes 6 months of repair support.
“What you are looking at is a 1950 Willys M38 (MC) military Jeep. These Jeeps were used during the Korean war era. This Jeep has been motor-pool restored and is in near perfect condition. It has been converted to a 12 volt system for the convenience of finding parts locally. I installed a left hand tail light on the right side to make it easier for other drivers to see for safer driving. Drives great. Original 134L engine runs strong with great oil pressure! Original T-90 transmission shifts like new! Older replacement Body tub. No bondo. All metal. Fuel gauge and e-brake are not operational and could use windshield wiper blades. Four wheel drive works as it should! Tires are Nos mud and snow grips that I found in a warehouse and are in good shape. Clear title. It is a hop in and go piece of U.S. history. All you see on the Jeep goes with the Jeep. I will repair anything that may need replacing for a 6 month period as long as the Jeep and the parts to make the repair are both brought to me to do so.
asking 13,500 OBO will consider cash offers. Also on ebay.
Call/text 601-398-7433 ask for Bryan.”
UPDATE: The gas tank outlet might be civilian (looks a little small), but otherwise this appears worth a look.
“Restored, body off restoration, parade ready, Military markings, semi-gloss olive drab.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3250.
Runs, but runs rough.
“I have a 1951 m38 for sale, it is an early m38. Has the lifting shackles mounted on top of the bumper in front. I believe this was a radio jeep for it has the filterette on the firewall and the braided radio cable in place. The jeep does run, but runs rough due to the carb. It needs brakes and exhaust and gas tank cleaned. Most of what you see is surface rust but there is some rust through. It is still 24 volt system. The serial number is MC 11651, the engine number is RMC 39571 and on the title is the engine number. I am asking $3250 for this jeep.”
It doesn’t run or drive, but looks pretty complete.
