1952 M-38 Castle Rock, WA $9,500

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $9,500.

(08/28/2013) It needs some parking lights in the front, but otherwise looks good.

“So here we have a very nicely built Jeep that I’m selling for a friend. First of all I would like to say the owner of this Willys took great pride in building it over the past 25 years and it shows!! Ok so Ill tell you as much as I can remember about it. Motor is a 302ci Ford (there you go Ford fans) with I think he said 25k on it. the trans is a automatic (cant remember what kind) but it is adapted with a advanced adapter plate and has a 30 split lever transfer case. the differentials are Dana 30’s but he has a 44 or 2 to go with it for the right price!! It is sitting on 35’s that look fairly new. He has extra parts to go with this also if the price is right !!

The paint is real nice but there isn’t any gold in it like it looks in the pictures.
Like I said Im selling this Fine vehicle for a friend so we are offering it as a BEST OFFER DEAL !!
Ok so I have dropped the price $500 this should get you interest !! Give me a call before someone else does !!”

1950 M-38 Flagstaff, AZ For Trade

• CATEGORIES: M-38

Seller isn’t sure about selling this.

“I’m thinking about trading my 1950 Willy’s Jeep for an enjoyable daily driver. It has a 283 V8, manual transmission and Dana transfer case from a 1965 chevy truck, over sized radiator, Dana axles, Flowmaster dual exhaust, and sits on 33″ tires. It’s a head turner and it’s impossible to drive around town without people asking about it or saying how cool it is. In low gear range, it’ll literally climb trees. I know, I’ve done it. It is a 1950 so it has its quirks, but it runs and drives well. I just haven’t had time for any tlc for the last couple of years and would like to see it go to a good home, while I get a car I can drive around when when the weather’s bad. I could definitely use a truck, but am open to ideas. Would love a 4wd Tahoe or Yukon with a 5.3 V8 in it…. I’m sure I’d probably take the right cash offer if it came along.”

1951 M-38 Prescott, AZ $1200

• CATEGORIES: M-38

Motor runs.

“”BARN FIND” 1950? 1951? or 1952? US ARMY M38 Willys, this M38 can be restored and/or updated for trail use. Was not able to locate any data plates and/or serial number. The original engine was removed and replaced with a Ford straight six and as a result a portion of the fire wall was removed. Has original tub, fenders, tail gate, transfer case, axles, frame, transmission, and hood.
Gauges do not work, wiring in poor condition. Driver side floor requires patch and repair, right side floor and cargo floors in fair condition.
The jeep does start and can be driven but, will require time and effort to make it roadworthy. If you are looking for a M38 Jeep for parts or restore, this might be just for you. The M38 has the strongest flat fender frame, T90 transmission, and Dana 44 rear axle.”

1950 M-38 St. Mary’s glacier, CO $3000

• CATEGORIES: M-38

UPDATE: Still Available

(08/30/2014) Sounds like it is still 24 volt.

Drives like a willy’s and engine runs great even with poor carb rebuild. Two new batteries. All new plugs. New fuel cell, lines, and fuel pump. Extremely low miles, odometer reads 30k. Lights work and most importantly a monster of a heater. Custom enclosure and doors. Comes with a snow plow. The hydraulic motor and ram are the only things I have not addressed. The rear of the bucket is toast but the rest is pretty good. Just don’t have the time to finish this project. This vehicle has no title, but there may be one in the files of the International college on Federal. If you wish to rebuild a title is should not be a problem. I have a bill of sale from them and they may even have found the original by now. This all original Willy’s except for parts mentioned is in pretty darn good shape. Just needs someone with the know how and gumption to really finish her off.”

1951 M-38 Richmond Hills, GA $4000

Appears solid.

This 1951 Willys M38 is an excellent restoration candidate. It was in storage in Texas for about 20 years. It does have one small rust hole in the tub under the gas tank but otherwise its in very solid condition. The engine is not the original but it is the proper L Head 134 and it runs very well. It runs and drives, but needs the brake master cylinder replaced, I have a new one for it. Converted to 12 volt, but I do have a few 24v components to go with it. 

Georgia does not issue titles for vehicles this old so it will be sold with a bill of sale and the previous owner’s TX title and paperwork. The vehicle has been inspected by a GA law enforcement officer and its serial number certified. 

If not local call first please. This is a rare military jeep that needs the right owner who is going to preserve or restore it. Most jeeps of this vintage have been chopped up or rusted away. This is a good one! I have a set of spare axles that go with it for the asking price.”
