1950 MC-38? Charlotte, NC $25,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38

The seller of this believes this to be one of the six M-38 pilot vehicles, also known as MC-38s: http://www.cj3a.info/sibling/m38/pilot.html …. However, after looking at the jeep, it has been modified to such an extent that even if it was one of the pilot models, there’s very little left of it. That said, I can see nothing that identifies it as an early model: 1) Serial number of MC 10149 is too late (serial number on data plates); 2) No full-floating axles (pilots had the WWII rear axles); 3) No battery box (battery box lid hinges were on the sides of the pilot vehicles); 4) wrong windshield setup  … the list goes on.

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

A variety of extras are included on this M-38. The windshield seems like it leans back a little farther than it should. I’ve never heard the term “Restored to Combat Class”.

“1952 M38 Jeep Restored to Combat Class

Has original parts, 24 volt system. Many original add-on’s that make this a unique find. Please see photos and review the video for running Jeep featuring a narrative from the owner and a full scope of all that is included with this sale.

Several of your inquiries have been to include further photos of what items are extra in my Dads large bin that comes with the Jeep. I’ve put many more photos in the ad now, several items most likely will have no interest to you, nevertheless they come with the Jeep.

I’ve personally never looked at the underside of the Jeep until I took these photos, it is not that easy to snap these upside down, but I did my best. I should tell you that it will have a few areas I know that need to be sanded, I believe on the right front passenger side on the undercarriage. The Jeep has been sitting several years without care, covered, but still without my dads care due to his illnesses, and I know he has not been able to maintain or do further work that he had planned on completing with the Jeep. But, all things considered, it’s not a shiny showpiece, however, it is one heck of a Jeep!

We’d Love to hear from you, make your best offer! Very Motivated Seller”

“1952 Willy’s M-38 for sale. It is, as far as I can tell, about 95% original. It does have a snowplow attached to it at the moment, but it’s easy to remove (that’s what the thing is between the seats – it’s the hydraulic motor & valve). It starts and runs – even after sitting for 6 months it’ll fire right up, but the engine probably needs a tune-up. It’s the original Flathead engine. It even has the original title. I think it might even have the original tires. I’d feel comfortable driving it across town, but I’m not sure I’d do it on those tires.

It’s obviously pretty rough, but in decent condition, considering it’s age. I believe I’m the third owner. The last owner had it for about twenty years and only used it for plowing their 1\2 mile long driveway. The rest of the time it stayed in their garage. I planned on either using it to plow or fixing it up and haven’t done either, so I need to get rid of it. The previous owner installed new gauges, a new battery and some other stuff. I have no idea how many actual miles it has on it.”
