1952 M-38 San Francisco, CA $5500

• CATEGORIES: M-38

No pics provided.

“This is a real army issue willys that was in the korean war which means it has a lot of heavy duty upgrades from the civilian model, it’s pretty much all original except the front bench seat but i have the stock buckets too and the front bumper trailer hitch for towing it as well. Just had a brand new carb and fuel pump put on it and the thing runs great and only has 30,000 miles on it! This thing gets lots of attention and is a blast to drive and will climb up anything! I also have a extra set of original rims and mud tires that will go with it.
I love this little willys jeep and don’t really want to sell it but current situations demand it.”

• CATEGORIES: M-38

UPDATE: price dropped to $4200.

(01/06/2015) Has an updated motor.

“Clean 52 willys m38 military jeep with a rare military hard top. Motor was swapped with Chevy 231 straight 6. Motor is from 62. Runs amazing and fires right up. Everything works and is turn key. Jeep is a real head turner and will take you ANYWHERE. Story behind the jeep was that it was in service during the korean war and was decommisoned from the military in 54. It was then used by the fire department as a utility truck and later sold to the public in the late 50’s. Whoever bought it from the fire department, professionally swapped the oriniginal 4 with the bullet proof Chevy 231. If youre looking for an awesome authentic military jeep, here it is. Clean title and street legal.”
