UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $10,000

(09/10/2014) The front end has been updated with a hitch.

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.”

1951 M-38 Richmond Hills, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

Appears solid.

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.”

This has to be the best M38 I have ever owned. Body is rust free and very straight. I have done a few things to this M38 to get it back on the road but without messing with its original condition. 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.

“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.”
