“1951 Willys M38 MC Jeep
We got it from grandfather’s estate.
He drove it around his farm, parades, etc.
It was parked in his barn around 25 years ago.
It was running properly at that time.

We trailered it home and took it to a mechanic friend.
He got it running and driving.
He said it now runs pretty good. (sounds fine to me)
He and his grandson were driving it around his farm.
I drove it a couple of miles. (fun, but I prefer fast toys)
It it titled in MN, now in our name.

It still needs
1) brake work (brakes are functional but weak)
2) mechanic said slight grinding noise coming from rear. I didnt hear it, but trust my friend.

It has a removable soft top/doors.
We bought a replacement OEM Willys metal gas tank for it
(the original tank is solid but has some buildup inside)

I have video of the engine running, and me driving it.”

Year? CJ-3A? Sarasota, FL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-38 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Greg alerted me to this project that runs. It’s got Overland Diesel’s Kubota swap kit.

“Dad was a military vehicle enthusiast, collector, and master restorer for nearly 50 years. This is a frame off restoration. This restoration is particularly unique as this jeep was converted from gas to a turbo diesel. This 1953 Willys was the last project he took on before exiting this world last year. My dad had some really good military vehicle friends committed to help me get this project wrapped up to this point where it is now ready to transition to a new owner. This jeep is 90% complete with fresh new paint, new body, new tires, new windshield glass, new seats, and more. Jeep starts, runs, stops, and looks great! The new owner can enjoy the satisfaction of performing the final finishing touches such as wiring, emergency brake cable, exhaust system/muffler.
See videos below of the Jeep being started and driven.
Jeep located in Sarasota, Florida. Can assist with pickup/shipping.
Good luck bidding!!

Additional Info:
Converted from gas to Turbo Diesel
Runs and looks great!
