UPDATE: Price dropped to $5000.

(10/24/2016) It’s an ex Forest Service jeep.

“1951 M38 Barn find. Has been sitting inside since 1970. This jeep has never been licensed or registered for the road. It was bought at government auction and put away. As seen in pictures, there is a US Forestry plate riveted to the dash. This jeep was given to the Forestry where it was used and then sold at auction. It is rust free. Beautiful hat channel underneath. It has 28,000 original miles. It is 6 volt. I have all the original 24 volt generator, distributor, voltage regulator that goes with it. It is just the way the government sold it. It runs like a top. Absolutely beautiful.

Has original gas tank, all cleaned out and small repair. Still has the screen in the gas tank. The only thing that appears to have been added, or possibly put on by the Government before the sale, are the rims and the motor. Motor # does not match the body #. No bondo. No repairs have been made to the body. Brake master cylinder needs to be repaired or replaced. A brand new one comes with the jeep. Carburetor brand new rebuild. New battery, water pump. Ready to go. Call for more info $6,500 Would consider a partial trade for WWII jeep.”

“1951 Military M38 Jeep Willys with tow bar attached to the front for sale. Bought not to long ago looking to fix up, but haven’t had the time to do it. Before me, previous owner had it since the 50’s. Body is rusty and will need a lot of work, especially on the floor pans and the floor in the back, but the original pieces will make it a really nice finished product. Has original dash, seats (not pictured), cargo attatchments on the sides, steering wheel, and entire body. Body was given fiberglass coating in the 70’s, and is painted green but chipping off. The front windshield folds down and has the military air vents and storage containers. According to the original owner, his father got it in the 50’s directly from the military. New engine has less than 6500 miles and will start and run. Includes spare tire attached to rear passenger side. Don’t drive it at all, but will fire up after a quick charge of the battery.”
