1955 M-38A1 Hendersonville, AL **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

It has an updated motor.

I am looking to sell this 1955 Willys M38A1 Army Jeep. I was in the process of restoring it but just don’t have the time or the resources anymore. It runs and drives great, all the work that needs to be done to it is cosmetic, like replacing older parts with new ones and paint. It does not have the original engine, it had been replaced with a 1966-67 Ford Inline 6 200 C.I. engine, most likely from an old Mustang. It has a 3-Speed Manual transmission. I have painted the hood and grille back to the original olive drab green. I have several replacement parts to go with it to help with the restore, including a canvas top assembly kit, and a rear seat assembly kit. It has both the original manual and a reproduction to help with the restoration.”

1953 M-38A1 Grand Haven, MI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Sold on eBay for $10,000

“1953 Willys Army Jeep M38A1 in very good condition. Jeep came out of Arizona and was owned by same person since the 70’s. I bought a year ago and gave full tune-up with new plugs, wire, points, condenser, distributor, etc. Runs awesome and starts every time. It has no rust at all and it is an old Jeep so it does have a couple of drips which is to be expected. This vehicle is ready to roll so you can buy and drive. Also has the heater option which is nice. Everything is working. The paint is nice, but this is not the $16,000-$20,000 Restoration that you see out there, but it is a very nice $12,000 Jeep and worth the money.”
