1952 M-38A1 Winnsboro, SC $4500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

This seems like a good price to me.

“This jeep was reconditioned in the late ’90. For the past two or three years it has been parked in my barn. As a result of not being run the fuel pump has stopped working. With a $30 rebuild kit and a complete cleaning of the fuel system this jeep will run fine. It has been used primarily as a show vehicle being displayed in various parades and events. It is in excellent condition and would make a fine addition to someones militaria collection. The markins are from the Korean War era and the unit was reconditioned to represent this period.”

Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art’s 1952 M-38A1

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1, Museums • TAGS: , .

I located a couple good pics of MOMA’s 1952 M-38A1 which was donated by the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund. I would suggest calling ahead to make sure this is still on display if you want to see it.  However, the M-38A1 is not the first jeep to be highlighted by MOMA.  In September of 1951, the Museum of Modern Art in New York decided to exhibit iconic automobile design as pure elements of art & design.  One of the eight vehicles chosen was the M-38, with the description as a “sharply rational vehicle”.  You can read more about that at the Jalopy Journal.

This pic is from a snapper of of NYC images for the NYCPIX blog.  There are some good, everyday sort of pics.  If you’ve spent time in NY, you’ll enjoy this site.

This photo is also from a NYC image blog.
