1951 M-38 Elizabeth City, NC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

Craig spotted this one. It has some rust, but given the completeness and condition of everything else, this is definitely worth a look.

“1951 Willys Jeep, runs and drives. Looks good, it needs a few things but at 65 years old we all need a few things. I’ve seen much worse go for much more, so $5k is reasonable for condition. Has canvas top (not shown). Tires are almost new.
$5k cash
Reason for selling, it’s my Dad’s and he can no longer drive, so I’m selling for him.
Clear title.
You must come in person, no checks of any kind. No BS. If you text that fine, I’m going to tell you in my reply to call me. I’d rather talk than text, it weeds out all the scamers.”

1950 M-38 & Trailer Missoula, MT $9800

• CATEGORIES: M-38, trailer • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Looks solid. You can buy the M-38 for only $8500 by itself.

“I have a older restoration. 1950 M38 done 30 years ago when nos parts were easy, with summer top, grc 9 radio set, back seat ect. Its 100 % rust free and stright with no bondo, one of the best m38 I bought then. now the bad news, I used it 30 years ago to drive into my silver mine (worked great) and then parked it in the barn, were it has sat since. So the gas is ugly, batterys are shot, tires do hold air and look great with 100 % tread. (but they are still 30 years old) brakes dont work, the seals will need replacing. I now need the storage and the jeep has to go , price is 8500.00 there is also a M100 1/4 trailer for sell. The m100 trailer is real nice, right hitch, cover, used it with my m38 jeep, the trailer has not moved in 30 years, been stored inside the barn. I need the space. The good, body, paint, hitch,fenders ect , not so good, tire shop broke 3 lung nuts, studs years ago to fix a flat so the lugs need to be replaced, the floor is a little wavy (nothing bad but it is not 100% new, I used it to haul my supply in to the mine )1800.00 or if you buy the jeep and trailer 9800.00 Please no tire kickers, I only want monny, no trades, and I dont need any help to sell the jeep. In short if you dont have the cash dont call. ”

Looks solid.

“Okay, you’ve decided you want a classic Military Jeep but you don’t want to pay restored or Family Heirloom prices…
You’ve looked for a long time (off and on) but you just can’t quite put yourself in the right frame of mind with the right Jeep that fits your tight budget. You need to ask yourself, “Am I able to accept something that I can fix and or restore while I’m using it ?” or “Do I need to pay more for one that is all done?”. Most Flat Fender “wannabees” tend to be in the $5,000 to $12,000 range for a “Useable Driver” that doesn’t have major rust or body damage.

Here it is! It’s a “Runner Driver” that looks and acts the part. Granted, …it’s not perfect, but it really is better than most you’ve seen and it’s at a reasonable price.
The Jeep has an out of state Wisconsin title so you need to bring it up to date in the state of California.

Originally the Jeep cost over $11,000 so our loss is your gain. You better not pass on this one because it won’t last at this price.

The engine runs good and doesn’t smoke but the compression numbers are tired but not out of the game. Probably could use a valve adjustment, one valve taps when cold but diminishes as it warms up.”

1952 M-38 Vermont No Price

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/10/2017) Seller has other military vehicles and items for sale, too.

I am selling my Willys M38 Jeep that was finished as a MB clone. This 1952 military jeep was built for the Korean war and is a true military jeep, but this one has the MB grille/bucket lights and older style windshield added. 

Many new parts. The Willys runs and drives well and is parade ready. No oil leaks to speak of. Maybe one or two drips at the most. I drive this jeep every other day to the store and everybody honks and waves. This is a great jeep for you to have fun with the kids and grandkids as it has all the safety upgrades, such as blinkers, tail lights, seat belts, head lights, black out lights, and horn. 

This jeep starts every time winter or summer. 4×4 works as it should. Not perfect, but ready to drive and have fun with. It cruises about 40 mph. The speedometer reads about 8 mph too fast so you’ll think you’re driving 48 mph! Clean Kansas Title. 

If you arrange shipping, I can drive it to a local car dealership if needed. Buyer arranges all the shipping and pays the costs. Jeep will not be released until all money is received and cash is in the bank. I am also open to taking a $1,000 down payment and then the rest of the payment on pickup. Throw me a note before buying it out and we can figure it out. – See more at: http://www.warjeeps.com/mjs/sale17/adm011/adm011.html#sthash.9lVRpkBG.dpuf ”

“Take a look at this completely rebuilt beautiful 1951 Willys M38 Army Jeep. Serial # MC21962

This jeep was rescued from a gentleman in Huntsville Alabama in 2014. It underwent a frame off rebuild. I’ve owned over thirty jeeps and have rebuilt/restored approx. 25 of them and have sold them successfully on e-Bay. This Jeep had been moderately used during it’s active life and was in need of rebuild. The frame and drive train were complete but needed some minor repair work. The engine is a correct MC engine that was just professionally rebuilt by Sigafoos Machine shop in Easton Pa. I had to replace the tub with a reproduction tub, but many of the other components are original Willys. The jeep has its military components de-commissioned – i.e. water fording gear removed, and 24 volt converted to 12 volts, has professionally rebuilt military Carter YF carburetor .

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

“If you are looking for a military jeep to restore this is it. Every thing is original and it is 99 percent complete. I bought it from the daughter of an older man who had planned to restore it for his grandson. However he passed and it stayed in a garage for many years. It is currently in my garage. I have decided to see if I can sell it as is. If not I’ll do the restoration in the summer. It has some rust but nothing serious. The frame is excellent. This is a time capsule for someone that wants a true military jeep. ”

“1951 M38 Barn find. Has been sitting inside since 1970. This jeep has never been licensed or registered for the road. It was bought at government auction and put away. As seen in pictures, there is a US Forestry plate riveted to the dash. This jeep was given to the Forestry where it was used and then sold at auction. It is rust free. Beautiful hat channel underneath. It has 28,000 original miles. It is 6 volt. I have all the original 24 volt generator, distributor, voltage regulator that goes with it. It is just the way the government sold it. It runs like a top. Absolutely beautiful.

Has original gas tank, all cleaned out and small repair. Still has the screen in the gas tank. The only thing that appears to have been added, or possibly put on by the Government before the sale, are the rims and the motor. Motor # does not match the body #. No bondo. No repairs have been made to the body. Brake master cylinder needs to be repaired or replaced. A brand new one comes with the jeep. Carburetor brand new rebuild. New battery, water pump. Ready to go. Call for more info $6,500 Would consider a partial trade for WWII jeep.”
