1951 M-38 Orlando, FL $3800

• CATEGORIES: M-38

It runs. Looks like rust is lurking at the steps.

“Sellling my 1951 M38 Willys. This is the military version of the CJ-3A. Korean War veteran.
Does not have the original L-head engine, it was replaced by an F willys engine.
Unrestored, unmolested (aside from engine swap), retains original Army marking.
Starts & Runs, brakes need attention. 4wd with fording original equipment.
This one would need little to make it a driver keeping the patina.

Selling on a BILL OF SALE, as it comes from Georgia and they don’t issue titles for antique cars. Easy to get the FL title and I am more than willing to help on that matter.”

1952 M-38 San Francisco, CA $4800

• CATEGORIES: M-38

Needs brake work.

“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! Needs rear brake slave cylinder rebuilt, 20 or 30 dollar fix other than that there are no mechanical issues.
I love this little willys jeep and don’t really want to sell it but current situations demand it.
4,800 obo which is a very reasonable price!”

ABOUT JEEP: 1951 Jeep Willys M38 Tactical Truck 1/4 Ton. The Willys M38 United States Army Jeep, also known as the Willys MC, replaced the World War II Willys MB and Ford GPW models. It was a 1/4 ton 4 × 4 utility truck manufactured between 1949 and 1952 with a total production of more than 60,000 units. The M38 was military version of the then-current civilian Jeep CJ-3A. The M38 differed from the CJ-3A in numerous ways, including a reinforced frame and suspension, waterproof 24-volt electrical system, sealed vent system for the engine, transmission, transfer case, fuel system and brake system. Some M38 jeeps were assigned to the Korean theater of operations, but the majority of vehicles used in that conflict were rebuilt WWII vintage. Approximately 2,300 M38 Jeeps were manufactured by Ford of Canada for Canadian Armed Forces in 1952, designated as the M38-CDN jeep. Its successor was Willys M38A1.

Year? MB/M-38 Inland Empire, CA $8000

• CATEGORIES: M-38, MB

This may have an MB chassis and tub. The grille is M-38.

“This Willys is a true survivor. The id number is a MB number, but is considered a 1947 by the DMV. The tub is a MB. The jeep was modified for a film to look like a M38. The driver side has been smoothed over with bondo at some point, but the ribs for the tools can be seen on the inside.
The window is post war as well as the M38 grille. The jeep will need to be seen.
It needs tlc for sure but is a driver.
I have the window rubber, just no glass.
The engine is what I can best figure is a 1953 F-Head Hurricane engine. It has the generator, but is wound to a 12v system.
It has Model A tail lights with the bezels painted green since the pics were taken.
The tires are new as of July 22nd. I also had Willys hand painted on the rear tailgate, as well as a personal tribute to a fallen family member, as well as a WWII Kilroy was here.
I am also having the rims painted green this week.
I am fixing it up as I keep driving it. If it doesn’t sell for my price, I will be fixing it up and keeping it.
The footlocker doesn’t go with the jeep. ”
