1952 M-38 York, SC $4552

• CATEGORIES: M-38

Has some body rust.

https://charlotte.craigslist.org/cto/d/york-1952-m38-willys-military-jeep-with/7054464990.html

“I am selling this Jeep for my father who is 89. He has had this Jeep for many decades, but never got around to doing anything with it. It is all original from what I can tell and untouched except the head from the motor was stolen many years ago.

Matching Numbers: The Vin behind the passenger seat , the vin on the dash plate, and the vin on the title all match. The engine block vin locations show no indication of having ever been stamped or the vin has completely rusted away.
Sold As Is.”

Parts that come with it: New wiring harness New gauges 4 New Hummer seats, cushions and seat belts Soft top with doors (old has some holes) Aluminum radiator and electric fan Brand new heater All the brass placards for the dash Roll bar New brake lines Many many more parts. All the parts are there to get it back on the road. It is currently on a DJ-5 frame which is 3/4 of the way boxed in, the original frame will come with it also if looking to restore back to original. You will need a trailer to pick this up and a way to haul all the parts. It’s registered non-op and has original CA black lic plate.”

1952 M-38 Streator, IL $15,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: John also has a rebuilt M-274 Mule for $17,000 or $30,000 for both the M-38 and Mule (As nice of a Mule and as equipped as I’ve ever seen).

“For sale, 1952 M38. Nine year old frame off restoration. Have all the original receipts plus what I’ve put into it. Engine was rebuilt also. Used wrong adaptor on my compression gauge and bent valve. Has been replaced and runs good again. Can show receipts and pictures for the valve work. Has minor master cylinder leak. Have a new one just to lazy to put it on. New brakes in 2018 and new water pump in 2019. New batteries in 2019. Has overdrive but seriously I have never tried it. (My bad) has been in heated garage since I’ve owned it and never seen rain.

Have some new steering parts. Have most of the fording parts. Has a couple of typical oil leaks but nothing bad. All the fluids, tranny, transfer case, rear ends, anti freeze, and engine oil have been changed recently. Wiper motors are but not hooked up, no blades either. . Since it doesn’t see rain, never needed them. Gas gauge has some rust showing in it.

Since there were 100 different opinions on the direction of the hood star, I put it the way I believed it goes. My knee doesn’t work real good with the clutch anymore so I’m selling it. If your looking for a museum piece this isn’t it but it’s a nice clean vehicle that just needs a little TLC. I also have an M274 A5 with recoilless rifle mule for sale. Four wheel steering. Nice but no museum piece either. I’m asking $15,000.00 for the M38 and $17,000.00 for the mule or thirty for both”
