“Great Korean War vintage 1952 M38 Jeep. This is military surplus, not a CJ-2 civilian model. Very fun to drive, unrestored, all original except for a new gas tank. New batteries, 24v system. Great to run around the farm or put in a parade. Dull OD green, not a shiney finish to attract the enemies’ attention. My wife did not like driving it near as much as I did.”

1951 M-38 Bryan, TX $6500


If interested, put “M-38″ in the subject line.

“I have a 1951 Willys M38 for sale.
I was planning a complete restoration but seem to lack the time to do so. This vehicle is street legal.
It has been in the family for quite a long time. I purchased it from a cousin and they used it primarily on their hunting lease in South Texas. It has spent the last 20 years of its life covered in a barn.
After purchasing it, I purchased & installed 2 new batteries, 5 new tubes & tires, windshield, windshield molding, shifter boots, front blackout lights, fuel pump & OE fuel tank & cap. I overhauled the carburetor & flushed the cooling system. I also purchased (but have yet to install) some new steering components & speedometer cable.
This would be a great vehicle for hunting season and some local driving.
Please email me with M38 in the subject line so I know your not spam. ”

1951 M-38 Katy, TX $6,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(08/04/2015) It has a few mods.

“Selling my 1951 M38. My 51 runs great, it is street legal and all lights/ gauges are operational. Engine is a 1964 Buick Skylark V6.

Comes with a tow bar that mounts in the front. The rear seat is raised and mounts in the back (easy to remove). I have the original engine hood cover if you want to lay down the windshield. Some extra accessories I never got around to install. I also have a remote feeder and rack that attaches into the rear hitch if interested (purchased separately).

I used this a weekend driver (when it’s not 100 degrees) and a hunting vehicle. I have camouflage seat covers for front and rear. All lights have been replaced with LED’s (extremely bright). I’m not in a rush to sell so make me an offer. I have title (clean) and i’m the second owner.

I will leave this AD up until it sells or I decide not to. I lost my ranch in recent hill country floods so I’m hoping it will find a new home where it can be appreciated. Please don’t waste my time with low ball offers.”
