“Here it is! An original, unrestored 1952 Willys M38 Jeep that has been in a heated garage basement since the late 1950’s.

“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

Great to run around the farm or put in a parade. Dull OD green, not a shiney finish to attract the enemies’ attention. My wife did not like driving it near as much as I did.”

If interested, put “M-38” in the subject line.

“I have a 1951 Willys M38 for sale.
I was planning a complete restoration but seem to lack the time to do so. This vehicle is street legal.
It has been in the family for quite a long time. I purchased it from a cousin and they used it primarily on their hunting lease in South Texas. It has spent the last 20 years of its life covered in a barn.
After purchasing it, I purchased & installed 2 new batteries, 5 new tubes & tires, windshield, windshield molding, shifter boots, front blackout lights, fuel pump & OE fuel tank & cap. I overhauled the carburetor & flushed the cooling system. I also purchased (but have yet to install) some new steering components & speedometer cable.
This would be a great vehicle for hunting season and some local driving.
Please email me with M38 in the subject line so I know your not spam. ”
