1952 M-38 Comstock Park, MI BAT Auction

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

Chad spotted this customized M-38 on a Bring-A-Trailer Auction.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1952-willys-m38/

“This 1952 Willys M38 was purchased as a military-spec example by the seller in 1996 and subsequently underwent extensive refurbishment to its exterior sheet metal, tub, frame, brakes, steering, exhaust, and 24-volt electrical system. Power is sent to all four wheels from an L-head 134ci four-cylinder through a 3-speed transmission and 2-speed transfer case, all three of which were rebuilt during the 1990s work. Modifications include a new old-stock military deep-water fording kit as well as modern gauges, lighting, and wheels. This M38 is offered with documentation of the refurbishment, two covers, and a clean Michigan title.”

“Note: This Jeep does not have a title. It will be sold with a bill of sale only. Don’t read any further if you can’t deal with buying it on a bill of sale only. Getting a title is possible through a title company or through the DMV in your state once you purchase it depending on the laws in your state.

Offered is a completely rebuilt beautiful 1952 Willys M38 Army Jeep. Serial #64192.

This jeep was rescued from a farmer in Lafayette, NJ in 2014. It underwent a frame off restoration. I’ve owned over thirty jeeps and have restored approx. 20 of them and have sold them successfully on e-Bay. This Jeep had an excellent 1952 M38 frame and drive train minus the engine. I added a civilian CJ3A engine outfitted to look like an MC engine that was professionally rebuilt by Sigafoos Machine Shop in Easton, PA.

1952 M-38CDN w/Trailer Indianapolis, IN $8500

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

May need a transfercase rebuild and a new clutch, but I still think this may be a good price.

1952 Canadian military M38 “jeep” built buy Ford of Canada.
A direct copy of the Willy’s American built M38 with a few custom features for the Canadian Government.
The biggest difference was the addition of a Warren front winch and data plates with Imperial units.
Correct British radio set.
This is an older armature restoration.

The Good:
Runs great! Has a Jasper rebuilt engine, Starts right up and is quiet and smooth.
Brakes are in excellent shape. New master cyl and 90% plus brake shoes.
Excellent top and interior, Good Canadian made tires.
Drives and shifts well.
Comes with the correct Canadian built trailer.

The bad:
Clutch slips under a heavy load.
Has a noisy bearing in the transfer case.
Use it as a parade or trailer queen or fix and hit the road!
$8500 No Trades! If its listed its for sale!”

1952 M-38 Ann Arbor, MI $5200 *SCAM*

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: Claus confirmed that this same jeep was on eBay for $20k recently. If you see this posted other places on Craigslist, I’d suggest flatting it.

Craig shared this ad. The too-good-to-be-true price on this beautiful M-38 suggests it is likely a scam. The phone number for the ad is a California one, but it was listed in the Ann Arbor, Michigan, Craigslist. That doesn’t automatically mean it’s a scam (as I still have my Cali phone number), but is just another reason to be suspect.

“Also has new 12 volt batteries. Totally rebuilt engine and transmission”

1952 M-38 Louisville, KY $23,500

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

Charles is selling this M-38. He has other vehicles for sale in similar condition that will be shown at the Military Vehicle Collector Show next year in June 2018.

“This rare example of a historic M38 has been professionally restored to “better than new condition.”  The history of this U. S. Army Jeep is well known.  It was purchased by a U. S. Soldier when both he and the vehicle arrived home to the states from the Korean War. It was assigned to the 10th Mountain Division. The soldier who purchased this jeep couldn’t get a Greyhound bus ticket so he bought this jeep to make his way home to Wisconsin. My father is the 3rd private owner of this vehicle.

As you can see from the pictures, this jeep has been appropriately outfitted with restored and working communications equipment.  It includes antennas, a windshield canvas cover, first aid kit, tool kit, full canvas top, curtains, doors and bows.

Must see to appreciate the detail put into this restoration.

Asking $23,500 as described.  Please contact Charles at 502-896-2303 during normal business hours.  Please, serious inquiries only.  Title in hand.”
