1952 M-38 Terry, MS **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay

“What you are looking at is an original 1952 Willys M38 (MC) military Jeep. This Jeep was used during the Korean war era. It was a Barn Find! I found this Jeep in a country barn back in the woods of Florence, MS. I am the second owner of this Jeep. The Jeep has been motor-pool restored and is in near perfect condition. It is all original with original 24 volt system. Correct lighting including blackout. I installed a left hand tail light on the right side to make it easier for other drivers to see for safer driving. Drives great. No bondo. All metal. Original bows and all. Fuel gauge is not operational and needs windshield wiper blades. Four wheel drive works as it should! It could use new tires. NDCC military non-directional tires can be bought from generation jeep’s web site for $80 a tire and the spare on the Jeep is ok. It currently has coop grip spurs on the original Willys rims. Clear title. It is a hop in and go original piece of U.S. history. All you see on the Jeep goes with the Jeep. I will repair anything that may need replacing for a 6 month period as long as the Jeep and the parts to make the repair are both brought to me to do so.”

1952 M-38 Red Feather Lakes, CO $5400

This looks pretty good for the price.

“This is a 1952 M38 Willys (Korean war) Jeep. It has a 4cyl willys motor that runs just fine. It does need the canvas top and rear seat, and needs the origional steering wheel. The pictures show the vehicle quite well. This vehicle has some good history behind it. I will include the shop and parts manuals, both in hard copy. I will also include some Korean War field equipment (see photo). Bumper markings are (2nd Infantry Division that was in Korea in 1952. Please no tire kickers, or offering to trade. I am not in a hurry to sell and would like to sell it to someone who will complete the restoration with pride. It is a great jeep for parades and special events.”

UPDATE:  This is back on eBay

(11/10/2012) This looks real nice.

“Up for auction is my 1952 unrestored, all original, M38 Willys Army Jeep. Yes, unrestored, all 100% original rare barn find. I have had this M38 for about 1 1/2 years now. This M38 was hidden under tarps and a carport for years! I can not tell you the history of the last 60 years other than what I have done to it to get her running! There are rebuild/service tags still on the M38 from the late 50s and early 60s! So with that being said, here are the thing I had to do to make sure she was 100% road worthy!

New water pump; (2) New batteries; Radiator checked, pressure tested and new filler neck; gas tank- brand new NOS original I had; brakes- all new shoes, lines, wheel cylinders, hoses, fittings, master cylinder; exhaust- after market new pipes and muffler (it needed a muffler more than anything, but I still have the original exhaust which will be included with the M38); transmission- all new fluid, pressure plate and clutch, gaskets; transfer case- inspected, looks great; both axles- new seals, gaskets, fluid, both in great condition; new knuckle front seals; all new 24v bulbs; one new drivers side headlight; tires- are original (4) Cooper Cross Country military tires (50% tread left still); spare tire- Denman original (New, never seen pavement or dirt); I’m sure I’m leaving something out, but please ask me.

Now, about the motor! After 2 months of working on the above mentioned list, I started the M38 up. It ran good, but not great. Because of the motor sitting so long, it has valve lash. I pulled the motor, went to get a valve job, but instead decided to rebuild the entire motor. So, the motor is entirely rebuilt with brand new everything!! Only 225+/_ miles on the motor since Feb., 2012! It was professionally done and have ALL receipts! Everything on the motor itself has been cleaned, repainted. Carb- rebuilt, new gaskets and cleaned. Distributor- new cap, points”

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

The seller claims this an unmolested CJ-3A. More accurately, it’s a M-38 that’s just slightly molested.

“WOW !!! Here is a hard to find unmolested all original 1951 Jeep CJ3A with only 12,396 miles on the odometer. The original soft top and doors will also come with the sale of this vehicle. This jeep runs and drives good but will need a brake master cylinder as it has gone bad while in storage. Come out take a look drive it around the yard and see what you think. I really think its worth your drive and time and doubt you will be disappointed. Asking 16K may consider serious cash offer made here in person. Tire kickers please don’t waste my time, serious buyers only as these original jeeps don’t come around for sale very often. call or text 4 zero 2 seven20-03one 0”
