“1954 M170, had been converted to 12v and civilian seats. Also passenger side has been modified to fit regular-sized doors. Was running several years ago when parked. Would be a good candidate for restoring to front-line ambulance, or as a radio jeep, your choice. Was from Arizona, flat-towed up to Missouri. Rust-free, engine not stuck. Have SOME original parts to go with it, CORRECT ambulance top, some passenger seat and original bows. NEW tires (not pictured) all the way around. True mileage unknown. Open title from Arizona.”

1954 M-170 Mississippi $12,000

• CATEGORIES: M-170

Bill shared this one.

https://gunspot.com/listings/detail/1745/1954-willys-m170/

“The Willys model M170 is the ambulance version of Willy M38A1. The Willy M170 was used during Korean War. I have owed this vehicle for about 6 years. It was a frame off restoration completely rebuilt including body and engine. Has very few miles since restoration. Runs strong 4wd works good. It is not titled for street use however can be by following Motor Vehicle registration in your state. It was not titled when I brought it as it was complete rebuild of military registered vehicle and previous owner never licensed for road use. I have driven in several military parades and used on my ranch. I will provide Bill of Sale.Buyer is responsible for shipping.”

(04/30/2019) Seller notes there are a few minor items that need repairs.

“I have decided to let go of my rare M170 Willys Front Line Ambulance. This vehicle is in very good condition and has undergone a comprehensive refreshment with new wiring, a rebuilt engine, new hoses, clamps and fluids, a new top and canvas cushions and it comes with an in-and-out military snorkel kit and a folding stretcher.

The vehicle operates on a 24 volt system with new, twin in-line batteries as well as high and low positons for four wheel drive when taken out of two wheel drive for the pavement. Starts, runs, shifts and stops, just like it should. Note that this vehicle will top out at 50 mph, so it is not meant for the highway.

There are a few minor items that need attention such as fixing the gas gauge and oil temp gauge and possibly replacing the steering wheel (have the correct new one) if desired. Most anything is available through online suppliers. Also, the full enclosure and doors are available as well ($4,500).

“1955 JEEP M170 This is a rare bird – rebuilt and in solid shape. As I understand this is a long body M38A1 army jeep and was originally outfitted as troop hauler, radio jeep, or ambulance/medical. May be the early inspiration for the CJ8 Scrambler. Engine rebuilt in 2012. I converted from 24 volt to 12 volt with new starter, alternater, wiring harness, fuse box, head and tail lights, etc. Also has rebuilt carburetor, new fuel pump, lines, fuel filter, steering wheel, horn, new set of tires, rebuilt emergency brake.

Comes with a big winch with remote, tow arms, and a box of random parts (can probably sell on eBay). Seats are new and all have lap belts. Runs, steers, brakes good. Ready for neighborhood drive with kids, grandkids. It does have cracked windshield, but easy to buy kit/replace. Its a rare one and priced to go – so no low ballers please. Clean title.”

“1954 Willys Jeep M170 which is the military vehicle that inspired the CJ-6/Scrambler/Unlimited. It is an M38A1 stretched at the factory 20″ with about a 101″ wheelbase. This particular one appears to be USMC used for mobile radio rather than ambulance, but it has some of the ambulance features like holes in the tailgate and flip passenger seat. The M170 is a pretty rare Jeep as they only made a little over 6000 of them.

It has a good running F-Head 134 Huricane, T-90 3 speed manual, Dana 18 transfer case, original driveshafts and stock axles front and rear with 5.38s. I need to look again, but I think the front is a Dana 25 and rear Dana 44. Transmission is currently not installed and the engine is not currently wired/plumbed, just bolted in place, but I have driven them and they worked fine for me.

Some signs of body work/dents around the drivers door, hood and cowl. The fenders are rough, but they would work if you cut them for tire clearance. Other than that, amazingly rust free for the age including all the various storage boxes this model has.

Comes with a tow bar.”

“For your consideration a nice condition and very rare Willys m170 USMC radio truck.
This is very similar to the more common M170 ambulance but instead of outfitted with stretchers, Was used to carry radio gear. This is a particularly rare bird because it is a later production model from 1963 ….basically almost 6 years later than standard production of the m170 was stopped

I don’t know much about the history of this vehicle in the service but there are a few sources online where one could study about them and the rarity of it.

This particular unit is in nice shape and has been mildly restored from an original unrusted example.

The paint color is olive drab and is in overall good condition. The jeep does have a blue vin tag issued by the state because the Vin numbers were not able to be found.

1952/53 M-170 Bakersfield, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-170

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This M-170 has been modified, but there’s enough left to suggest it’s a 1952 or early 1953 M-170.

“I was told this is a 53 or 54 Willys. I don’t know if this is a CJ2A or not. Story I got was it was used in the 70’s to deliver mail in one of our mountain communities and then parked in the 80’s. Carb is gone so so way to try and start. Some rust spots. Motor is supposed to be a 327 Chevy. Not sure about the transmission or transfer case. Axles look stock. No title, just a bill of sale.”

This M-170 body has been modified on the passenger side.

cj6-m170-ie-ca0 cj6-m170-ie-ca1 cj6-m170-ie-ca2

“I have a cj6 or possibly modified m170 tub for sale … Basically a cj5 but 20 inches longer so it would be a great start to a jeep with more room for gear or people or both , plus way more stable on and off road… I have had it for about 7 years and had every intention of building it as I have loved the old cj’s forever but wanted more room for tools and camping gear.

I bought it right after my first kid was born and thought it would make a great family jeep and was going to take the drive train from my other old cj to build it… Sadly after the frame was stolen from my back yard, I put the project on hold and frankly waited too long because now my kids just want to go out in the other jeep so I don’t want to take it apart to build the cj6… It’s got some rust and some dings but its pretty solid…
