1952 M-38A1 Portland, Or $1500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

This sounds like a must sell situation.

“1952 Overland M38 A1 Jeep.  Moving soon and don’t have the time to restore this properly. Frame is in *excellent* condition, no rust. Needs some bodywork on rear panel and left-front fender, otherwise ready for primer-paint. Mostly complete though missing random parts like seat cushions, generator, gauges, and other little odds/ends. Transmission and transfer case recently rebuilt (can’t verify though they shift fine and oil was clean). Engine rebuilt though I don’t know how much mileage or when. Cyl head needs new valves and guides since they rusted from sitting in damp environment. If you have questions please ask, email for quickest response.  $1500 firm. You won’t find one in better condition.”

This looks pretty good. I bet with a coat of green paint this could look very good.

“This jeep is all original. Has a title and is 95 percent complete. I spent approximately 8k eleven years ago restoring it. It has been sitting outside in the weather.

1953 M-38A1 Orem, Ut $2500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $2500

(01/09/2011) Brett’s neighbor is selling this Willys.  Brett reports that, ‘He never restored it but has always maintained it. It isn’t much to look at but runs great. The floors are shot and plated over and there is some body rust. But it is a good runner.’

“1953 M38-A1 Jeep. New tires, running well, completely rewired ~15 years ago. This is a Korean war era military jeep that is largely stock, strong original power-train, a great find for a complete military restore. This jeep has been a member of the family and now that it gets driven less I would hate to see it go to waste and ruin parked out side the house. Its needs a good home and I need the space.”

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $2500

(01/12/2011) This looks pretty solid.  It might make a good restoration project given it is still 24 volt.

“i have a 1952 willys m38a1 military jeep. it is all original with rebuilt engine transmission and transfer case that have no miles on them. this project is almost done does not run, just needs someone to finish it. has original four cylinder with 24 volt military electrical system would be easy to swap to 12 volt. has very minimal surface rust for how old it is. i am going to start working on it a little bit soon cleaning up the rust and getting it painted original military green so the price will go up accordingly. it is all exactly how it was when it served in the military great project have to see it to appreciate. has tow bar so it can be towed without trailer but i would use a trailer. jeep is just going to sit in my shop for a long time before i get to it and i want someone to appreciate it has lots of extra parts and original equipment. i had a friends uncle look at it and he is an expert in old military jeeps and he said this jeep in this condition could go for 5k had a guy look at it today and he said it is very good condition for what it is and very sturdy. i have been informed all it is really missing is the 24 volt generator and a few small pieces for the carb. or more easily so text at 503-407-1492 my name is jared. chances are i wont answer calls so text and email is better i get email on my phone so i will get back quick but if you have to call please leave a message and i will get back to you. I am very interested in a 1998 or 1999 subaru outback manual or auto.”

1952 M-38A1 Phoenicia, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

“For your consideration a 1952 Willys M38a1 military jeep.   Serial  # 17543,  dod.  9/52, making it an early example with the thumbscrew battery box lid, hinged front grill,  rare original slanted seam front fenders, and the narrow early bumper undamaged.

Runs great, with no smoke or knocks. The engine is totally original with the 24 volt system and all waterproof accessories (distributor, carb, generator, regulator). Transmission and transfer case shift smoothly and quietly. Brakes are inoperative due to bad master cylinder.

Was a municipal vehicle used for off road search and rescue (seldom)   It was well maintained and not abused, spent most of its time in storage. Has the original seats, cushions, rear seat, and 50’s dated tires. (pass seat not shown but included)  Body has very minimal rust, surface rust  mostly in a few spots, and a couple small dings. Frame and springs are excellent. Has all original dashboard and data plates.  Windshield frame is very good shape also.

Would make an excellent easy restoration candidate, as it has not been modified in civilian hands. Never had a snowplow mounted. Never had locking hubs installed. Never been registered on the road.  Has one of the best original condition body’s that I have seen”
