“This is worth any Jeep fans consideration. ‘52 Willys Jeep M38, Built March, 1952. This would make a great father-son project.
This Jeep served its late owner very well, taking him well south of Panama and back around 1980. There are several very nice features, including factory optional heater. Roll bar, soft top frame, doors, fiberglass; hood, locking front hubs, and un-installed fiberglass
front fenders. Very nicely done, a very long time ago, there was a ‘60’s GM Iron Duke, 2.5 L 53 CID L4 engine, complete with the alternator and wiring harness, retro-fitted into this appreciating classic. The engine needs at least a rebuild. Brakes and suspension will need servicing. Nice aftermarket turn signal/hazard switch, 7 gauge instrument panel, alloy wheels, good tread on old tires. Stored partially covered for last 35 years. Very little rust, besides the front fenders. I have a current Oklahoma Title and tag in hand.
Priced to sell quickly. $1295 FIRM. $1500 if you want to negotiate”
