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.”

1953 M-38A1 Orem, Ut **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $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.”

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

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”
