1953 M-38A1 Fairfax, VA $8200


Could be a good M-38A1 for bringing back to original.

“This M38A1 Willys Jeep is in great condition. It runs and drives with no trouble. It has a newly rebuilt engine, transfer case, and carburetor. It runs on a 24 volt system. It’s 95% original with a few parts such as the passenger handle in front of the seat that came from a CJ5. Brand new 6 ply tires and drum brakes all around. Seats are in excellent condition with no rips or tears. The only thing missing is the windshield wiper motor. I’m in the process of registering it so it will be road legal. It will be registered next week or the week after that. The DMV issues trip permits to unregistered vehicles so if you would like a test drive that can be arranged”

“All original Korean War Era 4×4 Jeep. Mechanically sound and no rust through anywhere ( some surface peel ). Runs like a top.

Two sets of tires and wheels, full curtains including radiator quilt, canvas seat covers and 2 new 12Volt batteries.

This rare original has seen minimal use. It appears to have been an officer’s jeep because it has a heater. Markings include “82 AB” and “HQ” on front bumper. Jerry can on the back.

Can be seen by appointment. Call with any questions. No long emails, texts. Not interested in any low ball offers and no help needed in selling. Garage kept and as good as you will find for its age.”
