“1951 or 52 Willys M38 Jeep. Needs to be restored. It has all parts except the radiator and bumpers as far as I know. The engine is locked up from being stored for so long. I started the restore by taking it apart to get the frame dipped but, never got around to doing that. The frame is solid though. I do not have a title my dad bought this from his friend many years ago and he did have it titled but my dad never go it done. The pictures are of the jeep before I removed the tub from the frame. You will need a trailer to move this. The axels and wheels have also been removed from the frame. EDIT — I also have a canvas top for it but it is missing the plastic rear window”

“This Willys M38 is in excellent condition except for the top.
There is a Clean, Clear Colorado Title.
It is modified to a low miles Buick V6 called the 231 Even Fire.
The clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing are all new as well as the Brass Pilot Bushing in the back of the crankshaft.
It is a running, driving vehicle that needs a few little touch ups but overall it is a very good running machine.
The four shifters are as follows:
Three Speed with Reverse, Overdrive, 4X4 and the short one puts the entire unit in neutral.
You can shift into Overdrive in Every Gear.
All four tires are brand new, the brakes work excellent and the built on Winch is in perfect condition.
It is very fun to drive and it starts every time I have ever needed it.”
