It’s a project.

“I’m selling this Jeep being I was going to start it as a project but don’t have time now that I am a student.

1953? M-38 Daytona Beach, FL $33,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38

Looks ready for the road, but it is also a good example of how the investment of time and money doesn’t always equal the market value.

“I had this jeep completely restored and absolutely love it. Unfortunately, I need to sell to get a work truck. I would consider trading for a 4×4 diesel or gas crew cab flatbed dually; or just a good newer 2500 4×4.

Please do not waste my time with random offers and just plan junk. I have 33k invested in this jeep with supporting documentation.”

1951 M-38 Weatherford, TX $1200

• CATEGORIES: M-38

Includes some combat rims, so there could be some value here.

“Life gets in the way, I would love to restore this old girl but I just don’t have the time. I’ve spent a lot of time taking everything apart and starting to clean things up for a full ground up restoration but my time is needed elsewhere and I would like this to go to someone who will take care of her. There is only one cancer spot on the body tub and it’s under the passenger seat in the compartment and it’s not very big, should be a simple fix. I have a bunch of other parts with this as well. A few combat rims,CJ2A parts like a frame, fenders, trans/transfer case, axles. This is a project so you will need a trailer to get her home, I will help with what I can, but the frame is hard to move.”
